Student, South Puget Sound Community College, Class of 2016,
The top reason I would advise someone to attend SPSCC is because your teachers care. I know, I know, all colleges say that but I have the proof to back up my statement. I took an English 102 class last quarter and my teacher pushed me hard. But she was also my biggest support. Always prompt, always available, she met me multiple times to give me hands on tutoring and boosted my confidence that I could do my very best no matter what was asked of me. Not only are the teachers invested in their students but they are invested in their fields. My environmental science teacher inspired me to go into the field because of her obvious passion. She was extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter and had years of experience in studying and teaching environmental studies. I learned from one of the best and most passionate teachers during my time in that class. Teachers who care and are also brilliant are great incentives for attending SPSCC but its even better because its affordable. Yeah, like no joke. I can have my associates degree earned and not fall into any college debt. My part time job and working in the summer means I can afford my classes without ever needing to think of taking out a loan. The college also offers scholarships. I earned one this quarter meaning more of my money stays in my bank account and can go to helping pay for my bachelors. Attend South Puget Sound Community College because its affordable and the money you do spend allows you get to learn from passionate professors who take a personal interest in the academic success of their students.
