I absolutely loved my time at SCCC. I wanted to stay local and leave without any student debt so SCCC was the perfect option. The tuition is affordable, with plenty of options for financial aid, scholarships, and payment plans. I can only think of one or two professors that were awful; the rest were knowledgeable in their field, committed to teaching, and passionate about their subject material. The major downside is that the advisors are awful! I went to a couple different ones and they were terrible for different reasons. One was plain rude and obnoxious (I vowed to trip him if I ever saw him walking on campus), another just wanted to chat so I barely got any of the information I needed, and another gave me wrong information. I recommend searching for your own answers online, by asking people in specific departments or fields, or by going right to people or the website of whatever school or program you want to attend after SCCC. Overall, I would highly recommend SCCC.
Review SUNY Suffolk County Community College
Suffolk County Community College is a fantastic place for people who live on Long Island to start their university experience. The faculty genuinely cares about the students, and there are a number of clubs and activities for students to participate in. Furthermore, the Honors Program at Suffolk County Community College is great as well, and challenges students who have above average class performance. Suffolk County Community College is an affordable way for students living on Long Island to start off their college careers and to earn necessary credits for much cheaper than at private universities.
Suffolk County Community College is the best place to get your start for your education. You earn your first 2 years worth of credits for an affordable price, while still getting the college experience. The campus is great, the teachers are friendly and efficient, and the students are friendly as well. My student email is always full of opportunities and updates. You're also provided with a lot of joint admission programs, so you're guaranteed to continue your education at a 4 year college. The only downside to the campus is the parking, in the morning it can be a bit of a hassle. Many students say the food isn't that great, I believe it's nothing worth bragging about but it's still decent quality. I've noticed many of my friends who went to 4 year schools their first year transferring back to Suffolk, which speaks for itself. Overall, I would highly recommend this college and urge you to go here to start the path to your career.
