Southeast Community College is full of amazing opportunities – most importantly the opportunity to set students up for a successful future. Knowledge, connections, relationships and training are all a part of the student experience at SCC.
Students attend SCC for many different reasons and career paths, but there is one thing they all have in common: They want to build a foundation for their future.
Here are just a few of the cherished opportunities students at SCC get to experience day-to-day.
Many students choose to live on campus. It's their first opportunity to live on their own, yet still be in a safe environment. Discovering their freedom and independence while learning the responsibility of living on their own is invaluable experience. Residence hall living completes the full college experience.
While living on campus, students are within walking distance to their classes and the plethora of on-campus activities available to them. While many people may feel living on campus will be too distracting for their soon-to-be college student, SCC studies show the exact opposite. Students who live on campus remain attentive to their studies, stay plugged-in to school more efficiently and are more likely to graduate.
Dorm life creates a dedicated space for students to focus. Living on campus, in their own space, helps students hone in on their studies. In addition to private space, students have access to many study areas and, of course, the library.
Students' on-campus space is not only for focused study, but also for fun and relaxation. Practicing a new skill or activity for your extracurricular can be a well-deserved break from the books.
Some of the friendships students make on campus can be lifelong-relationships. Common spaces have games, TVs and more to facilitate welcome spaces for students to gather and get to know one another.
On campus, students have plenty of opportunities to meet new people and build relationships. Working together or decompressing over a cup of coffee are just a few of the ways students can bond.
Working together, studying together and brainstorming assignments are all part of the interactive and inclusive atmosphere that encompasses SCC.
Courses at SCC provide students with challenging studies to help them get to the next level. While the educators at SCC are a great resource for students, their peers are an invaluable asset.
Classrooms, like the ones located in the Eicher Technical Center, provide students with the knowledge they need to succeed in the future.
SCC has field-specific, advanced technology that facilitates real-world learning experiences such as 3D dissection tables for nursing students to virtually work on a cadaver and a 900-acre lab where students in the agriculture program can train using modern farm equipment and the latest in precision ag technology.
Intimate class sizes allow students to have more one-on-one time with their educators. Instructors are able to give personalized attention to each student in order to hone in on career development.
In addition to personalized learning, SCC provides many opportunities for hands-on learning. SCC has many co-op and internship opportunities that are a part of the curriculum.
The educators at SCC want the best for their students. They want to see their students find their passion in life and to thrive in a career they love.

Health and wellness centers, sports and intramural teams, clubs and organizations and a multitude of humanities activities are all available for students to participate in. Students at SCC walk away with so much more than a degree – they walk away with treasured life experiences.
Students can continue playing the sport they love by participating with one of the intercollegiate athletic teams available at SCC's Beatrice campus. Being a part of a team is great opportunity to make close friendships and avoid that dreaded "freshman 15."
