A typical SCF student is usually starting out with no exact major or career plan in mind, but all the determination to do whatever it takes to start on the right track without getting too lost. If the certain student does have a career in mind, he or she starts looking at what classes are necessary and which would benefit them in the long run towards achieving a specific degree. That is just a typical student, that goes to any college or university, really. The type of person that should attend SCF, should be, (according to my geographical opinion) able to live relatively close to the school, and have a positive mind set and be open to the opportunities that are offered here. Other than that, anyone can attend, if you fulfill all the requirements you are all set!

SCF expects students to be well-rounded academically and socially. They look for students who want to put tremendous effort in their studies but also go outside of the classroom and try something new and fun such as playing a sport, joining a club, volunteering in the community, or running for a school government position. The student of SCF must be trustworthy, fervent and dedicated to learning and teaching others. We must be the leaders of tomorrow and influence the changes of society and the world around us now. If these are your qualities, apply to SCF!

Students at my college are all different, I think anyone could go here and fit in! If you like to just hang out in the courtyard there is a place for that. If you like to just go to class and leave most people do that. The teachers are nice and helpful. Administration makes it easy for you to apply and get your classes together.
