I started SCC in Fall 2017, going part time, then a couple of full time semesters. I love the online classes, but wish they had more instructors & classes online. I’m forced to take one in the classroom. While I like the class, being disabled and getting there it is very difficult, then if I miss 4 classes I will lose points. Aside from that it is great, everyone is nice, teachers are knowledgeable and helpful and the PTK honor society is great!

Online learning is what you make of it. Do the work, early if possible and don't be afraid to send your instructor an email when you don't understand. Having the opportunity to complete courses online gave me the freedom (depending on the instructor) to complete assignments at my own pace and seek assistance when necessary. As well as being an introverted extrovert, I felt more comfortable being online.
It's an easy and welcoming experience at Surry Community College. Students and staff are extremely friendly and encourage each other to follow their goals and dreams. It's simply a wonder college to be a part of. Navigating the campus was tricky at first, but you get the hang of things after about a week. Communication with dangerous weather can be tricky for the school, since the weather in the state is strange to begin with. So, I think just being more careful on weather's unpredictability is a good improvement.
