For me, this school has provided me with the best possible college experience that I could ask for! The college gives its students a plethora of opportunities to receive tutoring and mentoring every semester in both specific subjects (like statistics and chemistry) and in assisting students to with their chosen academic field of study. Furthermore, the college hosts a significant number of career and academic events that help students gain more knowledge and understanding of what to expect after they have finished college and enter the workforce. However, the most notable characteristics of this institution for me is both the proficiency of its professors in teaching their specialized subjects and the college's striving to create a community amongst its students.

As far as community colleges go this one is top notch! The guidance counselors are always on point, same with the financial advisors. They offer free tutoring, multiple computer laboratory, online and offline library's, and plenty of other helpful qualities. I have been going here for almost 2 years and have had nothing but good things happen and with all the help I excelled enough to be apart of Phi Theta Kappa, and lets just say I dropped out of high school. So this was a big turn around for myself! if they can help you IIm sure if they can help me accomplish my goals they can help you too.
I attend the Seminole branch and I just love it here. The professors so far have all been pretty great, the buildings and equipment are all fairly new. There are LOTS of computers in every classroom and in the "commons" - study area, like a library, as well as computers and iPads available in the cafe for students to use. There is free, walk-in tutoring all day, every day but Sunday! The campus is small enough to be able to walk to all of the buildings easily and surrounded by acreage to give it a peaceful setting.
