It is a great college to attend. SCC helps you accomplish your goals, it gives you something to look forward to in the future. If you want a good education SCC is the College for you. Because the people that you meet are good people. I loved all my professors, because they took time out to help you. I recommend SCC for any student, who wants to get a good education and meet good people. SCC has a place for everyone regardless of sex, race, or color, etc. I enjoyed SCC so much ,that I plan on returning in the Fall of 2012.
