Although I am currently not attending college due to being unemployed and finances, overall I have had a great experience with SLCC college. I decided to attend this community college due to the classroom size being smaller which enables students to have more of the teacher or professors attention and time. I always struggled in Algebra and I recall I had an excellent math teacher. He knew I was struggling to pass math so he took the time every day after class to tutor me for free. I passed because of his time and patience. I choose SLCC due to its reputable academic programs offered. This college provides a two year program and the versatility of being able to transfer to a four-year college if desired. I do have a favorite professor which was my algebra teacher, although at this time I can not recall his name. Once I am employed again and financially stable I do plan to attend SLCC in the near future.
