It has received a lot of negative feedback but the school has become a wonderful institution to attend. I completed my Bachelor's in Organizational Management there and am now an MBA student at the University of Liverpool. It is possible to achieve your life goals from this school. I saved a lot of money, had a great support system of professors, and learned value lessons through my time there to truly appreciate my educational experience there. I have attended the University of South Florida and the brick-and-mortar format of a large university looks great on a resume and the networking possibilities are greater, HOWEVER, that is only if you truly take advantage of it. The smaller class sizes and the personalized support you receive from the teachers there, whether you are a 4.0 GPA student, a single parent, someone returning to school after a long leave of absence, this is the school to go to. It accommodates all, and I wouldn't be happier being part of the 2015 Alumni Class!

I would recommend SF College in Gainesville, FL to anyone that is interested in being successful or just need an environment that will promote your journey to finding success! I have recently graduated 12/2015 with my Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing and prior to have received my Associate of Science Degree in Nursing, Associates of Art Degree and Practical Nursing Certificate from this college. SF College is # 1 in the Nation. I am now currently applying to graduate programs, I wish SF College had this option but it does not.

Santa Fe College offers phenomenal post-grade services. Since most of the students who attend Santa Fe transfer to the University of Florida, the college recently established a center on campus that specifically focuses on transferring from Santa Fe to the University of Florida. The advisers that are stationed there showed me all of the classes and requirements that I need to obtain in order to get accepted into the University of Florida. Also, Santa Fe has a career center that is well known for helping people build resumes and find jobs in their field. In addition, the career services that Santa Fe offers are very efficient. For example , I sent in a request for my transcripts to be sent to three different schools, and they were all sent by the career center in less then one business day. What I like the most about Santa Fe College is that they are willing to offer a student help even after they graduate. The quality of the post-grade services at Santa Fe are wonderful! As a result, the process of me transferring to a 4-year university has been very smooth.
