Overall, my experience at SCCC was great. Even though it is a community college, I met a bunch of new friends from surrounding towns; I even met my new best friend and we will be transferring to Stockton University in the fall and rooming together! Sussex gave me the opportunity to raise my high school GPA of a 2.7 to my current GPA of 3.96. It gave me the opportunity to become Vice President of Phi Theta Kappa National Honors Society. It helped ease the transition from high school to college and helped me mature and really find myself. SCCC helped me complete all my general education classes without having to pay a ridiculously high price at a four year college. I met some professors who have made a huge impact on my life and future. I couldn't be more pleased with my time here, but I am very excited to be making the transition from community to Stockton and cannot wait for what the future holds for me!
Review Your College
This college is perfect for HS graduates that aren't quite ready to go off to a 4 year school. Its small, the staff is friendly, and it does a great job of preparing you for transferring to other schools. I will never regret starting my college career at Sussex. It also gave me the opportunity to work full time while attending college as well. I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to attend Sussex, and I am now ready to transfer after the spring semester!
SCCC isn't very challenging or social, but it is well worth the saved money to take gen eds here! You can meet some great people, but you have to go out of your way to get involved. It's not that people aren't friendly- they're usually just really busy with work and responsibilities. Don't fall into the belief that cc is just for people who can't get into better schools- I met some really intelligent, interesting people. I came here to take my gen-eds at a low cost- now I transferred to my dream school and an only taking classes that relate to my major. I won't pretend I had a great time at SCCC, but looking back it was worth it.
