4 College Senior

Online Courses: I am not a great online student. I have ADHD and I have trouble keeping track of the things I need to do. But the online courses they offer are great if you have the ability to stay on track and keep yourself motivated.

4 College Senior

Career Services: The try to help student's land jobs right out of school. My professors tell me that Surry actually employs people who graduate from here very often.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: My teachers have been great. They are very knowledgeable in their field. They are always willing to answer any questions you have.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The student center has a great program that helps students get employed when coming close to graduation. I feel like employers may not hold Surry Community in high regards compared to a four-year school, but I feel like that is unfair. Employer's should look at a person's applicable skills compared to something someone has learned in a book.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The workload can be heavy at times. You definitely feel like a college student, but only living at home.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It is a great school. Having been to a private college before attending Surry, you can see the difference. Surry Community College definitely feels a little like high school. You see different social cliques like the "sport" clique, the "nerdy" clique, etc.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I've had to cancel a few family plans due to work loads, but it's nothing that I didn't expect. Overall, the classes have been pretty easy to work around.

1 College Senior

Online Courses: I only had one online class, but I hated it. It wasn't necessarily a reflection on the class, but on how I as an individual learn. I'm terrible at online classes.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: All professors are reliable and most are very helpful. Class sizes are usually quite small, so student receive a one-on-one type education. There are a decently wide variety of classes offered, however some classes are either hard to get into due to demand (such as nursing), or are hard to get into due to a lack of demand (archeology).

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Most students go to Surry Community College with thoughts of transferring to a four year school, including myself, so I can't say much about the career opportunities presented at the college.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Im a biology major, but I have only taken one biology class as this is only my second semester. However, so far I have thoroughly enjoyed my biology class. My professor is a marine biologist, my intended major, so I relate to her well. She is extremely helpful, and constantly walks around to each student during labs to ensure we have an understanding of the material.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Though some of the teachers aren't the best, Surry Community College is certainly a terrific school to begin one's college career. The teachers are always willing to work with students to ensure they understand the material covered in the course. Tutors are available at all school hours, and are always free. I would definitely go to Surry if I had it to do over again. It has saved me money, and has also allowed me to have a general understanding of how a college course works.

Campus Resources: Basic athletic fields and libraries. Nothing outstanding.

Student Body: Most people do not enjoy going to school here. Most people are in a hurry to graduate and move on to a university in order to move away from the town.

Academic Flexibility: I have had trouble finding the best way to transfer to other schools. It seems as if the administration office tries to keep students there as long as possible to receive more money for a longer period of time.
