2 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The library is loud at times, the campus is being renovated so 50 students have to fit in 30 student-room classes.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: If you bring your own computer, the wifi's dependable in the library. Anywhere else it's unaccessible. The campus computers are at least 5 years old, and you have to pay for printing and sometimes that doesn't even work.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The school has a good library and source of computers but the wifi is dreadful.

2 College Junior

Campus Resources: The printing can be a pain considering it doesn't always work with you id card and the computers don't run on very modern softwares as well. And if you have your own computer good luck on the wifi

4 College Senior

SCCC's campus is well manicured and maintained. The buildings are clean, outside walkways are plowed, flowers are planted, etc. There is an effort to decorate the campus for holidays and other events. Renovations are not prevalent here, and even though everything is not completely modern, it is more than sufficient to satisfy basic daily needs. The Learning Center, although its location on the third floor is unusual, is very well equipped, and it is open weekdays (Monday and Friday 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m., Tuesday–Thursday 8 a.m.–6:30 p.m.). A receptionist is always there to help students with any concerns they may have. It is filled with computers, printers, copiers, staplers, and places to study. A large portion of this enormous room is dedicated to tutoring.

Other student facilities include the Athletic Center, student café, and library. The Athletic Center is a small rectangle of thick, sweaty air. It is cramped, has a painfully limited selection of equipment, and—if students dare to venture inside—it is usually filled because of the limited space and sharing with the school’s sports teams. The student café has computers for student use (although no printers), as well as ample space to eat and study. There is an attached game room with pool table, ping-pong table, and foosball table. The library is a large, clean, well equipped, and sound-proof facility. Study rooms, books, computers, printers, copiers, and a help desk are available to students—as well as the library’s archive available entirely online (although a few of the programs can only be accessed on campus). The facilities are generally busy, but still accommodating.

Campus Events/Traditions
  • College Hour: The only real tradition here is "College Hour," which happens campus-wide every Thursday from 10:40 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. During this time, no students on campus have class. Students use this period to congregate with friends and start spontaneous football games. Usually there is a scheduled event for students to attend-like a magic show, concert, or caricature artist. Typically, students have a break during the same time on Tuesdays.
  • Teens Arts Festival: County has been hosting the annual Teens Arts Festival every March since its inception in 1969! During this event, the school is flooded with student art from the surrounding districts (grades 7-12). The art ranges from sculpture to dance and covers every inch of the buildings County designates for the event. It is open to the public. It is also typically a field trip for the local high schools (as many of them have their work showcased). In May, there is a follow-up event called the State Teen Arts Festival.
Unique Features
Smoke-Free Campus: SCCC has become a smoke-free campus. However, since this is a fairly recent change, many students still try to smoke. Anyone caught smoking on campus is charged a $50 fine.

Did You Know?
  • Sussex County Community College has its own TV Channel that streams information about local announcements and community affairs. Students are in charge of the program and often select local events to televise, such as concerts or the Sussex County Fair in August. Check out Channel 20 for the inside scoop of what's happening in Sussex County!
  • There are many study spaces with couches, tables, benches, and TVs scattered across campus.
  • Most refer to the College as SCCC or County, although many students jokingly call Sussex County Community College by a few of the following nicknames: Harvard-on-the-Hill, The University of Newton, SCCCCCCC, High School #2, and SC(^3).
  • Most students have their own computers and simply spend their time on campus to attend class. Tech support is always available and prompt. The network is reliable in academic buildings and most other places on campus, although slow.
  • The food is actually from a restaurant that caters through the campus. There are also familiar options, with Dunkin' Donuts coffee as a popular choice.
