2 College Senior

Overall Experience: The overall experience hasn't been too terrible. I have relied heavily on ratings for the professors, which seem to be pretty accurate. The faculty that does care is pretty excellent overall. However, the adjuncts that they hire seem to not go through a very rigorous interview process, as it is hard to believe that some of them have been able to survive everyday life, let alone teach.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The ease of transferring credits is absolutely awful. Very few of my credits transferred, and of the ones that did, full points were not awarded so I have to take more classes than are necessary to complete my degree. They required instructor credentials, a course description, and a syllabus for the class taken at the previous college, and even though the syllabi matched nearly verbatim to theirs, they still did not accept my credits.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Main campus has the athletic center, student center, libraries, most campus activities, but not the most updated. I love the small private sound proof rooms offered at the library. The newest campus has the best aesthetics, but not fully functioning with all the departments needed to be considred full service.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I have my own computer and haven't had the need to print on campus as of yet; however the wifi and speed is decent. They a do a pretty good job of making PC available to those who don't have computers.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: SCF is predominantly white, varies campus to campus. No obvious discremination of obvious sexual orientation diversity. The socioeconmic average is low - mid middle class.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I'm not really interested in allot of school spirited activities. I have a family and a job that keeps me pretty occupied.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is extremely affordable. I contemplated about moving to Boulder Colorado and checked into a couple of colleges near Denver and found SCF to be close to $100 less than any college I would have liked to transfer. The financial aid office has always been helpful. The financial aid website has great links for resources with obtaining additional aid.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I'm not at that point of needing these services

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far it's been great. The best part of my school I like are the staff. They're extremely helpful. Sure not everyone, but I can always find someone who is looking out for me and will steer me in the right direction or give me all the information I need to make a decision.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have not taken an online class

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: This past semester I had two very different experiences with two of my classess. My Psych class was awesome. Wonderful professor. My math class was a disaster. New professor to the school and she was a terrible instructor. She had so many complaints. My advisor was so kind and empathetic to my situation she reached out to the math department head and they allowed me to take the class pass fail after the deadline and gave me a credit to take the class over. Transfer of credit was great. I had credits from three different schools and two different states. Steps were simple and I was surprised with the number of credits they accepted.

Campus Resources: Resources include a career lab, a library, and computer labs. No studing centers unless of course the resources listed are applicable.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Our school has many computer labs with great internet connection and wifi. The only problems may include computer malfunction. Other than that our computers in our school are a great resource.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: My experience with online courses took my thinking and processing information to a whole new level. Online classes are self time managing courses. You work on your own pace and strive to finish by the given deadline. It was somewhat difficult in the beginning because i was unaware of how speedy you have to be when it came to learning new material and doing the assignments. The online course had to be done much faster than it would be in regular base class. I definetly lacked peer interation. It was always about me and the computer, never other students, which I dont mind. I was determined to finish with no distractions. My professor also checked up on me daily and gave me reminders and heads up when something had to be turned in. Overall, my professor was consistent, respectable, and concerned majority of the time.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: In the school i am attending, there is not much criticism towards one another. A typical student may be a different ethnicity and still fit in with the majority of the students attending the school. I would not say there is much descrimination that i hear of but im sure an average student does face some kind of decrimination towards his sex, beliefs, religion and so on. A student will face challenges and may feel like they are not accepted but it all depends on the social interaction that person displays with his/her peers. In our school, mostly all interact and relate to one another. So I explain that a typical student whether the difference in race, sex, religion, poverty etc will be most likely accepted within our school.

Academic Experience: The great part about my major is that I don't have to take all my classes on campus, I can take some online. The workload isn't necessarily easy but easy enough to keep me interested and focused on finishing.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors I have had have defiantly been great on helping to make sure I understand all the information that's been given. They understand that everyone learns at a different pace and are willing to slow down or even speed up if that's what the class needs.

Online Courses: I believe they can be just as hard as normal classes maybe even harder. It depends on the student and their willingness to keep up with everything.
