Sussex County Community College Reviews
I loved my Sussex Experience i met so many unforgettable friends that i now call my family. I played basketball on the woman's team both my years attending Sussex and the program was great! The amount of professors, staff, and students that attending out women's and men's basketball games were amazing and they had great school spirit!
SCCC is a very diverse school in a beautiful rural setting. The school has helped me make new friends and connections and is a great way to start your college career with its affordable tuition. I highly recommend those interested in business to attend their school of business. The school offers a variety of majors and each of those programs excel in their own way. The campus is quite small; similar to one of a big high school, but that just allows you to be more in tune with your professors and peers. They offer free student tutoring that has helped many and the athletics is one of the best in the state. If you are interested in soccer, they're ranked 4th in the nation and just came off back to back region championships, with NJCAA national tournament appearances.
Its a very quiet campus, no disturbance. Easy to follow, clean, nice environment to study in, teachers and staff are willing to help you in everything. I never had any trouble in my two years of study. I would definitely recommend for someone who is financially struggling, the college is willing to help its students financially and offers scholarships.
