I absoylove that I attend Forest Park. This school is expanding my mind and changing my life. Ima so happy I picked this school. The teachers are great. The tutors with the Trio club are awesome. I have a 4.0! Started school in January of 2016. I am happy I stopped prolonging my life and choose to go to Forest Park. The counselors are awesome. They are always smiling and willing to help. They try there best to get you the answers to the question s you came in with. This school terrific, I love it. I feel safe because every time I look up I see a police patrolling the area. It's great.
Review St. Louis Community College - Forest Park
First off, there is a large selection of courses available and many campuses to choose from.

I have really enjoyed the laid back environment at STLCC. It's comfortable with just enough looseness to give students a bit of personal freedom, but not so much that anyone seems to overdo it.

I only ever had an issue with one class. It was a Gender Communications course, that within itself held a quite a lot of content that I found interesting, but the organization and communication with tough for me to adapt to. There wasn't one set area to check for assignments, the professor would put too much on your plate - completely disregarding that students have lives, jobs, and other courses. Much of the assignments seemed like busy work, similar to what you would expect in a middle school, before students have reached full maturity.

Other than that single course, everything else has always been great! The classes are small to medium in size - generally 25 or less, giving enough time for individual attention, while also providing plenty of peers to bounce ideas off of.
During my time at Forest Park, I was able to meet and work with quite a few of outstanding professors. The instructors were truly passionate about what they were teaching about and cared for students as well. As far as classes go, I would definitely recommend attending Forest Park.

But, aside from the classes, two departments that need some work are the financial aid and advising. Most of the time they make you feel as though you're inconveniencing them by being there or do not keep up with paperwork.
