My name is Maria and, just like you are now, I was a student at St. Petersburg College. Last May, I graduated from SPC with my Associate of Arts degree. I was in the dual-enrollment program, which allowed me to take college classes while still in high school. Now, I’m a transfer student at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., studying International Relations. It is thanks to SPC, all the faculty and staff, that I am able to reach my dreams.
For the last two years, SPC has been my life! I can honestly say I spent more time on campus than in my own home.
One of the reasons why I loved being on campus so much was because of the resources available to the students. From academic tutoring and counseling, to mentoring programs and workshops, SPC can provide you with tools to succeed!
It is also a lot of fun. American writer and artist Elbert Hubbard once said, “A school should not be a preparation for life. A school should be life.” Even though schoolwork is the most important aspect, don’t think that college is all about work. There are amazing opportunities to enjoy student life in every campus.
This blog is meant to help all SPC students and others who are considering attending SPC. Going to college is a major step for anyone. You might be right out of high school. You might be coming back to college to continue your education. Or you might even be in high school and taking college classes. Knowing about the right places to study on campus, the proper classes to take and the best clubs to join can make all the difference. The goal is to have the best college experience. Truly, SPC is the best place to start. I dare you to join me as we embark together on this journey of higher education.
This blog is divided into three categories: student life, academics and need to know. I will tell you all about SPC from an insider’s perspective. I’m here to help you, give you advice and motivate you! So please, ask me your questions!
