St. Petersburg College Reviews
My experience at St. Petersburg College was an amazing experience! Everywhere I turned I was faced with instructors and advisors who wanted to see the success of their students. The college went above and beyond to provide support and countless opportunities. My personal favorite was the learning center, where we could meet one on one with tutors to help us through even our toughest courses. Most importantly the school went above and beyond to make us feel connected! Overall, St. Petersburg College is a great place to grow and learn while having the college experience!
This year there was a shift to online learning that was due to Covid-19. While this change was something no one was prepared for, SPC did a great job of ensuring the students an shift to online learning. Personally I feel that SPC did so much to provide the resources and understanding to make this shift. In online classes SPC made sure our ability to reach the same amount of support remains constant. Professors and advisors did a great job in staying connected and making sure that the learning content was informative and easy to navigate. Taking an online class while not everyone’s first choice was enjoyable and dare I say fun!
I was able to obtain my AA degree this summer, and find my passion for a future career - Graphic Design! This school has some of the best professors and academic advisors I've had. SPC offers classes at an affordable, more reasonable, price. It's especially helpful when you are first getting your AA or AS degree, because you're taking core classes that you can transfer to other universities, while saving a lot of money. There are also many scholarships they offer and other forms of financial aid depending on your needs.
