<div>[MUSIC PLAYING] We have a very diverse community of students and lot of different cultures, but I do believe that it's very close knit, no matter where you're from, where your background is. And I really like that about the community. </div><div><br></div><div>I love how small it is. The professors know who you are. Each student knows who you are. </div><div><br></div><div>It's really homey, I guess. You feel comfortable here. </div><div><br></div><div>One thing that I love most about SMC would have to be the faculty. Everybody's great. Your professors, they actually want to succeed. They want to see you learn from their class and go forth and do the next thing. </div><div><br></div><div>I love the accessibility to professors at SMC, and I love the accessibility to just different students, different ways of life and culture. </div><div><br></div><div>I didn't expect SMC to be as great as it is, coming in. I expected it to be just you go to college. It's not that big of a deal and not going to be a great experience as a four year school, but it's exceeded all of what I thought it would be. And it's just like a four year school, which is preparing you even more. </div><div><br></div><div>[MUSIC PLAYING]</div>
