If you aren't a complete fool and make an effort to understand some of the teachers you can do really well and take something from your experience. There are some very good teachers at this school who provide an excellent education, though, I would remiss to deny that some are lacking and put very little effort into teaching or are just disorganized or straight up confused but they are still quite easy to navigate and usually the teachers who mess up the most are the ones to throw you a bone. I think people are being a little too bougie and looking down on the school because they're like classist. There are a lot of teachers who work really hard! There are also a lot of weird kids which is fun. And, you know, actual Black People.

Hello everyone! I had a very good experience at SUNY SCCC. The teachers were very helpful and would go above and beyond to make sure I received feedback. They always got back to me right away with any questions that I had. If there was one thing I would change about SCCC it would be the clubs. I would add more clubs and advertise more for the clubs that already existed. Overall, I highly recommend going to this college.
Overall, it is a good school. The past semester and the current semester, great professors. Granted, there are some rather terrible ones also. (Where is there not good and bad?) The great professors and majority of the staff are great; however, be aware that there a a few professors that have a reputation for not showing up to class. If you find yourself in one of those classes, be attentive at the beginning because some of them are still good professors and some are really bad. Also make sure you use the resources they have there for you.
