Student Reviews and Ratings for Big Sandy Community and Technical College
I went to swvcc and really hated it. I thought every college was the same. However, years later I enrolled in bsctc and fell in love with the campus, staff and with the overall experience. Hate I have to leave to achieve a bachelor's degree.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Unhelpful staff, a mistake was made with my transcripts on their end and they have been completely unwilling to fix it. Several times I have went to them and every time they have been rude and willfully unhelpful.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I love Big Sandy Community and Technical College. The faculty there are awesome and are all very helpful. All the professors are very nice, friendly and are willing to help their students. The class sizes are very small so you can get to know your professor very well. It does really feel like home. The classes are challenging, but not as much as UK and EKU's. They are all manageable if you put some effort in. Big Sandy brings me back so many memories. In the mid 2000's I used to go there to take my ACT test. I was accepted into the 2 year Honor's Program in 2010. The scholarship paid for 15 credit classes. In addition, our community used to play soccer at the back of the Post Secondary and Campbell building. That was back in the 1990s when I was young so I am not sure if those buildings were built then.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
