I really enjoy being at Shelton State Community College. I've been to a few basketball games and had lots of fun! I also have gone to concerts for my music appreciation class. I actually enjoyed them way more than I thought I would. My favorite thing at Shelton is how everything is in one building. I also love how they have tables outside so that I can enjoy sitting outside in between classes. I absolutely love how Shelton doesn't have Friday classes. The week can be so stressful and having an off day is so relaxing. Also, this is helpful for someone who needs a job; fridays could be a great day for them to work. Prospective students should take advantage of every opportunity possible and always apply for scholarships. Shelton has so many great scholarships offered, and they're so easy to apply for. Shelton State is a wonderful community college for someone to go to right out of high school to help prepare them for a four-year university!

Shelton State Community College really is a great school. The student body size is about right if you like to be able to have one on one time with your professors. The school's technology is updated and the campus is fairly easy to find your way around. Almost every teacher I have had has been a sincerely nice person and has a passion for teaching with a strong desire for their student to succeed. It's easy to make friends here and memories that will last a life time.
