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.
Class sizes are very small, I've never seen more then 25 in a class. Such small classes make it easier to get one on one help when a student needs it when struggling. Most professors work very hard to maintain up to date information on their courses. Most classes also cater to all different learning types, great class reviews for tests and you are taught for the most part things you will use in life. Clubs are lively, for a community college there are so many clubs to attend. It is a great way to meet people and maybe become involved in leadership. Field trips are also an extra bonus about being involved in a club! Who said field trips where just for kids? All this doesn't mean a person can just breeze through at this school. Yes, the professors will go above and beyond, but it takes hardwork and determination to graduate. Overall, this is a really great school.
