Seward County Community College faculty bring more to the students than classroom instruction. Through our instructors, many of whom hold doctorate-level credentials, students gain access to rich and varied life and professional experiences. Learn journalism from a former international bureau chief who covered every major disaster on four continents over 20 years. Get Commercial Drivers License instruction from a man who started out delivering milk and eggs from rural Pennsylvania to New York City. Participate in university-level lab work with science and Allied Health researchers. Put all those resources together, and students can gain the skills they need to succeed in their chosen fields.
