Friends & Neighbors

At SCC, we take our middle name seriously: Community.  No community college in North Carolina—and in all likelihood North America—is so well supported.  The public embraces Sandhills, and we return the warmth and respect and gratitude.

  • Our buildings honor the generous spirits who fund our ability to give students an innovative educational experience.
  • Our campus with its renowned gardens reflect the carefully groomed neighborhoods beyond our grounds.
  • Our partnership with the Ruth Pauley Lecture Series and the Carolina Philharmonic serve our community members a continuous cultural experience.
  • Championship-caliber athletic programs turn young athletes from our region into scholar athletes capable of excelling on courts, courses, and classrooms at premier four-year universities.

Our community engagement has led to a lasting marriage of minds and spirits that serves our students, our neighbors, and our region.
