One of the nice things about SMC is that we have career tracks that appeal to a wide variety of students. We have programs from education, to business, to robotics. And those degrees will allow students to directly transfer in which to major universities without loss of credit.
They really engage with the people here. It's not like they're teaching out a book, they actually give off real-life experience, which does help me out in figuring out my future.
I know every one of my students, personally, so I'm not just learning their names, but I'm learning about them. Most of my classes are less than 20 students. They can really get one-on-one attention with me.
To have like a smaller class size and to have one-on-ones makes it feel more like a personal relationship. I feel like it really helped me out with what happens in the real world and it just doesn't hit as well as it does here.
When a student graduates with a two-year degree, SMC works very hard to make sure that it's a smooth transition into the workforce.
Not only do we build our curriculum to align with industry needs, we also have advisory boards where we're talking with our industry partners, ensuring they have success in the classroom and overall an extended support system for them.
