When i first walked into Savannah Technical College.I was certain that this college was the right college to suit my needs, the environment was much admirable and well rounded. I believe this college is the perfect choice. Why because i feel like i could accomplish much there, i felt comfortable and even the other students seemed like as if they were at home. The faculty was ready to help without hesitation in making sure that your success is a sure thing. Now i am certain without remorse that this is a perfect decision and i hope to meet new and interesting people and learn much, Savannah Technical is the right choice.

What I think overall about this school is going to be completely honest. I transferred her from south Carolina coming from another community college. I would have to say this is probably one of the worst schools I have ever stepped in. The entire staffs favorite answer is, "I'm not sure" or "I don't know". if you are looking to go to a community college, steer clear of this one. Half of the teachers barley teach you. It was a waste of money and the governments money, not to mention they tack on all these fees for tuition, they come up with a couple new ones every year. They say how they need more money but you will always see the teachers having a lunch-in catered from somewhere, WHILE IN THE MEAN TIME IM PRACTICING CPR ON A BROKEN DUMMY AND TAKING BLOOD PRESSURES WITH MALFUNCTIONING EQUIPMENT!
