I have not been at south for very long, but I love it! The campus is small but very beautiful. Almost everywhere you go there are fun plants and interesting student artwork for display. across the South parking lot, there is a Chinese garden, with many paths and plants, the students in the horticulture program work to make it a very beautiful little park! The only problem I've ever come across at south is the Financial Aid office, I have spent a long time waiting to receive an award letter, however besides some office problems, South is a small and amazing school to attend!

Throughout the last three quarters that I have been attending this school, I have encountered lots of positivity. Each professor I've had was always prepared and well organized with their lesson plan. They also encourage each student to participate and they make it a safe environment for anyone to speak up and personally I think thats very important in any environment so people could feel comfortable. The school campus is also very appealing and the student body is very friendly. If i could choose schools all over again, I would still attend South Seattle College.
