SPOTLIGHT

Garrett Castle

"SCC encouraged me every step of the way to finishing my degree and pushed me to strive for more. Both in-person and online, courses were manageable and between the teachers and the support lab, additional help was always available. The staff, professors, and administration were always helpful and supportive, and I will never regret starting at SCC."
