I have had a great experience at SFC. It’s a smaller school so everyone is very close and it truly feels like family. The professors I’ve had, have been very helpful and want me to succeed. The school location is also a major plus. You are exposed to many cultures and people.
SFC campus is smaller than the average college. Hard to find a quiet place to study.
SFC is a commuter college, so most students will be around the area. I cannot speak about what it is like to live in the dorms but I do understand what it’s like to commute. I love the friend group that I have and some of the professors at SFC are genuinely amazing. I love the availability of dining locations outside of SFC (which is honestly much better than on-campus dining).
My biggest concern is the lack of communication around campus about major things such as the new campus and rumors. A lot of questions you may have might not be answered. Along with that, a lot of professors and academic advisors had left the college. So most likely if you were to attend SFC, you might not have an advisor.
In small classrooms, teachers are open to listening.
Very few chances to interact with peers.
Socializing with other students may be hard now but there are many events going on. The professors are really nice and are very understanding of students' situations.
I did not like the slow internet at the campus as slow internet is a common occurrence.
Affordable institution; very generous with funds/scholarships. Lack of social life and average academics.
School is moving to campus in downtown Brooklyn.
St Francis College is very community orientated with small classes that allow teachers to be more involved with their student's education. The academics are not particularly challenging but the workload in combination with work, extracurriculars, and volunteer hours can be difficult.
There are few options available for required classes because it is such a small school once you get further along in your program there will only be one class available for each requirement.
