Dalton Blair05/01/154 Stars - Nice campus, but I wonder about that lake you have on campus. I go there nearly every class day to feed the Muscovy duck family and the turtles that live there, and I noticed that the water is an unnatural blue, and it's filled with garbage. One of the ducks tried to eat a strip of plastic, and I had to throw a chunk of plastic another tried to eat, and had to catch him when he went after it. I've also found a Doritos bag in the water. Might want to clean this up. I don't think it's healthy for those animals to be swimming in it, and I think this is backed up by the dead fish littering the lakebed. Plus, it'd just look a lot better without that color.Tom Morehouse01/25/154 Stars - This is a great college. They are improving and learning from mistakes made in the past. They offer Bachelors degree programs, and are going to be offering more in the years to come (unless the Legislature takes this privelege away.) The advisors are so-so but keep at them and they will help you. Some of the Professors are better than others but its a commuter college so that comes with the territory. Overall I would recommend this to anyone who wants to work and go to school...Nicole Shaw11/01/145 Stars - This is my first semester going to SCF, I go to the bradenton campus, and I am a fully enrolled student (full time is considered 12+ credit hours). It is a pretty good school for what you pay, and the campus is really gorgeous. There are several free programs that the school offers to it's enrolled students. Such as free gym use at the school, free yoga classes, free tutoring in all subjects open 6 days a week, guest speakers, and many other campus events. The library at the bradenton campus is really nice. There are lot's of computers for students to use, printers, countless study desks, group study rooms, and many librarians who are happy to help you find what you need. The teachers i've had have all been really great, they are eager to help students who are eager to learn. The student demographics is also widely varied. There are many unconventional college students. Such as students who are very young (15-17, they duel enrolled or graduated from high school early) students who waited a little bit, late 20's -30's, along with returning students who are in their 50's and 60's. From what i've seen no one really makes a big deal about student ages or really bullies/gets bullied over this. Except for some of the super young kids (15-17). A lot of them get inflated ego's and pretentious about being in college early. If you are an early admissions student don't get cocky.. You're gonna step on a bunch of toes and make people not want to talk to you or write you recommendation letters. As for the majors, from what i've seen the most popular programs are the Nursing, Business, Education/Teaching degrees, and other miscellaneous health programs (dental, physical therapy, ect ect..). But the selection pool for majors is very wide. SCF is a pretty great investment/return for your money if you are willing to put in the effort for your educational success.
