Facilities: COC is a centrally located community college in Santa Clarita, California. This is a very nice valley. We are next to a lot of food places, malls, and exciting things to do. While COC is a large campus, there is a huge student population. I think we have somewhere around 33,000 students this semester. Although there are so many students, the social scene at COC is very good. Rarely do I walk to class without seeing someone I know. Everyone is very friendly. The academic programs at COC are amazing, I have nothing but great things to say about their athletic training program. It has truly given me an edge when I attend a university's athletic training program. Clubs are very easy to join and it is easy to become connected at COC. It is a great school, especially if you need an affordable education.

Academic Flexibility: The Admissions Office at COC is very helpful. I had completed some courses in high school that I could get college credit for, so I filled out some paper work and the Admissions Office took care of it. I had to petition to take 20 units one semester, I just filled out some paperwork and the Admissions Office took care of that, too. I have requested transcripts a number of times and never really had a problem with it. I had to petition for my Associate's degree, so I just filled out some paperwork and the Admissions Office took care of it. COC wants its students to succeed and transfer out so they have been very helpful.

Career Services: I'm not really familiar with the post-grad services at COC. It is a community college so must students either earn the Associate's degree and begin work or they transfer to a university.

Student Body: COC is extremely diverse. Being a community college there are all different age groups on campus. There are students that are still in high school who are trying to get a head start on college, there are kids right out of high school attending COC instead of a university. There are people who took a year or two off and are getting back into the swing of things, there are middle aged people who are coming back after raising children, and there are even elderly people who are just looking for something to do with all of their spare time. The difference in ages sometimes is a challenge, it might be a little harder to make friends in classes. However, COC is designed to be a two-year college so a little diversity for only a short amount of time isn't a bad thing. We have all different races, all different economic classes, all different political views, all different religions, and all different sexual orientation types at COC.

Campus Resources: The TLC is a place where everyone can go to rent a book, study, use a computer, get tutoring, group study, complete workshops, etc. It is huge and there are so many helpful people working there. Athletes are required to spend a certain number of hours in the TLC each week to ensure they are staying on top of their school work. The student center is a large building where you can get pretty much anything you would ever need. They sell everything in there. The library is very nice and sophisticated. There are certain rooms that must remain quiet and then other rooms where group studying is allowed. It is three stories and is filled with useful knowledge and staff. The clubs on campus are very active. Almost every day there is a club activity going on in the quad.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: We have so many computers available at COC. I have never once had to wait to use a computer. The ASG lab allows you to print out 10 pages each day for free. If you need to print out more than that you can buy a print card where I think each page costs about $.10. The wifi is a little slow on campus, sometimes it takes my laptop a while to load during a class. Overall, the computer network at COC is really good.

Online Courses: The online courses at COC are very demanding, sometimes even more demanding than actual on-campus classes. This is good and bad. Online courses at COC are very straight forward and we can constantly track our grades which I like a lot. They are though like I said very demanding so you need to have access to a computer almost every day if not at least every other day. The teachers for my online courses have been great. They respond to emails very timely and regularly post assignments and announcements.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Pricing per unit is very cheap at COC, I believe its $48 during Fall and Spring and $54 during Summer and Winter sessions. The books, however, are extremely expensive. Some classes at COC require custom books that can only be bought at the COC bookstore where (I feel) the books are extremely overpriced. I wish that all books required could be found on Ebay, Chegg, etc. so they wouldn't be so expensive. Overall, though, COC is very affordable and provide a lot of opportunities for financial aid.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: COC has an athletic training program that is very similar to accredited programs at high level universities. Students learn a lot and are given a lot of hands on experience. It prepares us for applying to an accredited program at a university. COC athletic training students will probably be in the top of their class at the university athletic training programs because we have gained so much knowledge from COC.

Academic Experience: Most of my classes have gone really well at COC. Classes are offered at three different campuses: Valencia, Canyons Country, and online. There is, however, difficulty in getting the classes that are needed sometimes due to overcrowding. Some teachers at COC do not speak very well English making it extremely difficult to grasp complex concepts in class. Overall, though, my academic experience has been very enjoyable and I feel like I'm getting the same quality education that is provided at a university.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I really like College of the Canyons. The lawns and roses are beautiful. The classes are small. The teachers are nice. The library and the TLC are great for studying, tutoring, or doing homework in. The clubs on campus are very active. COC is an easy school to get your education started out at and it's very affordable. I'm getting the same education as I would at a university but for a community college price.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: For a community college, it's great, but doesn't at all feel like a college experience.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Some actually care about the students and their job, others don't care if you transfer to a big-time university or transfer home.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: My major was psychology and the only psychology stuff that was ever mentioned was joining the Psychology Club on campus, but that does not work for everybody so more options need to be available. My major is now Liberal Arts and I haven't heard a word about what to do next with that major

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: You better be sure to pay the day you register for be ready to get dropped from all of your classes.
