SCF is a beautiful campus, where you will find nice places to hang out on campus and the board are constantly trying to renovate and keep it nice. However, it is surrounded by retirement homes and not much else to do besides grocery stores, the student life is almost nonexistant thanks in no small part to the social experience between students being really bad. This is not the place to expect to meet people and socialize. The professors for the most part will do their best to accommodate and support you though, which is welcome. Reccomend using caution when it comes to FAFSA rules with this campus, and how they go about switching or dropping classes. Once, while still within the permitted add/drop period, I dropped a course and was charged a almost a full semesters tuition just for that one class.

Small classes, great professors, and sunny weather. Who can beat that? I recommend this institution to any student in the world!
As long as you look on rate my professors you'll be fine. Looking for a good professor is probably one of the most important things that can be done at any college. Something that needs to change here is the ways that they deal with financial issues with financial aid and scholarships. Personally, I've been to the financial aid and cashiering offices over 5 times this May and it's only the 10th. There also needs to be a change in the area around the college in terms to access to food other than what is provided by the college. Not a single restaurant delivers to the Venice campus and there is no food within 10 minutes of the campus. It's hard when you want to study there all day and then there's no food available during the afternoon and evening when the cafeteria closes.
