Academic Flexibility: My teachers take late work,a lot of them.They want whats best for you as well as whats easier for themselves.Example they'll give us less homework so there can be less work for them to grade.I can't wait to go to a university.

Overall Experience: Despite all of the shortcomings and annoyances I think the overall experience has been positive. If you are a student who is interested in something other than computer related majors you will more than likely have a much more enjoyable experience than I did.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: I think computer science majors have it the worst here. They have at least updated the adobe programs to the latest version (finally) so that's great. The computers I believe were updated in the past few years as well but they're still not fantastic for some of the more intensive types of work. The people in charge of the program are trying though, it's just that the school doesn't have the money for it and as a result the students suffer whether it's because there are no classes or they aren't offered often or poor computer hardware (several mice do not work very well and it's not even like we need a high end mouse to do things, you can get a perfectly functional one for 8-10 dollars).

I do hope they improve it and I know the teachers and the person running the computer science majors and classes are trying but right now it's just not very good unfortunately.

College Senior

Academic Experience: I don't know too much about the other courses offered at my school aside from the fact that everyone seems to hold the firefighter program in very high regard. Any medical studies also seem to be popular like radiology or respiratory care or whatever else there may be.

3 College Senior

Facilities: Most of the facilities are good. Essentially if it has to do with computers it's probably not great, unless you're just needing to use computers for very basic things like emailing or searching. Athletic programs and music are quite good from what I've seen and heard.

I don't know of any study spots if there are some, people seem to do homework randomly throughout the campus at benches or tables.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I don't know if this is just supposed to be general knowledge but I had no idea you can only take a certain amount of credits before they stop giving you financial aid. I took a lot of extra classes I was interested in but not part of my degree only to find out I went over the max units I can take so now I have to cover my expenses some other way without financial aid. Another reason I took so many extra classes is because the classes I needed were not offered for several semesters in a row and I wanted to stay in school at least half time. I feel like there needs to be much more interest from the administration to the students because there is virtually no communication or care. They don't take the initiative to approach you or try to talk to you about anything. Maybe that's common practice but it shouldn't be.

Financial aid office is TERRIBLE. You can wait up to two hours or more out in the sun or cold because they only let in one student at a time. Just think about that for a second. Only one student is allowed in the financial aid office at one time. They need to change their policy or get a better financial aid office because going to the financial aid office for any reason has been some of the worst experiences I have ever had. To top it all off once you go in you may only be in for about a minute or two until they hand you a sheet and tell you that you need to go do something else then come back.

2 College Senior

Online Courses: I've only taken one during summer and I didn't like it at all. The teacher was going crazy with assignments, giving you massive amounts of work to do, far more than you would have if you'd taken the class at school. Aside from that there was no privacy with submissions so if you wouldn't want other strangers reading your assignments you probably shouldn't take online classes unless you know that you can submit your stuff privately. Everything was done in a forum with the class I took.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I don't know if I've just been talking to the wrong people or if I had bad luck with a counselor but they weren't particularly helpful when trying to help me find a future college to transfer to. They didn't know anything about computer science related fields so they weren't much use beyond recommending the general state colleges that everyone seems to go to anyway.

Aside from that I don't think I've ever seen them advertise or help students with jobs, if they do then I have no idea where to go to get more information about it. They do have many days where representatives from other colleges come and sit around to give students who are interested information and all sorts of stuff so that's great. I believe they call it a college fair.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Most of the teachers that have taught computer related classes have been pretty flexible. There have been one or two who are very strict but I don't know if I'd say they were unreasonable. In the end it really depends who the teacher is.

College Senior

Campus Resources: The campus seems to have a lot of centers for athletic related courses or programs. I have not participated in any so I can't rate how good they are but we have a swimming pool, gym, golf course, and a few other things. The library was recently rebuilt and it looks fantastic. Again I don't know how useful it actually is in terms of the books they have but I found it pretty annoying that they don't have all the programs installed on the computers that someone majoring in a computer science degree would need. There is only one computer lab which is often occupied by classes in-session so if you want to use it you have to wait until they're done.

The campus is pretty well maintained outside, it looks quite nice. Inside is a different issue. Some buildings aren't maintained as well and the bathrooms I am not even sure if they're being cleaned or if the students that use them are just especially... bad at using them.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is only one computer lab that has most programs a computer science major would need. There are a bunch of computers in the library but it's pretty annoying that they don't have all the programs installed on the computers that someone majoring in a computer science degree would need (in fact I'm not sure they have any aside from microsoft office unless this has changed recently). There is only one computer lab which is often occupied by classes in-session so if you want to use it you have to wait until they're done which is not ideal in any way.

Reliability and speed has been very good for me in my experiences. Many people complain about it but I've had no issues. Download and upload speed is very fast typically. Wireless access is not so great. There are a lot of deadzones just from walking building to building. The computer lab allows you to print for free but if you try to print in the library they will want to charge you for it, not sure how much.

4 College Senior

Student Body: There's a lot of diversity in the student body. You have students fresh out of high school and much older people coming back to learn more or get a degree. I don't know how common of an occurrence this is in other classes but for computer related courses I find the diversity is very high.

Crafton Hills is a good school to begin your educational career, even on a nontraditional schedule. With tutors for English and math at all levels and courses from pre-college to second year, Crafton offers a wide range of education. There is always someone available to help you go where you want with your education. Some teachers and staff are harder to reach than others and the Financial Aid Office can be a real problem, but overall, students have what they need to succeed and grow. Part of this is a tedious process, though—like applying, getting an educational plan, and seeing about financial aid. This may be a bit mechanical or grueling, especially if there are any issues that are not well addressed. It is those moments that are generally hardest to deal with as a student. The good news is that the educational part is a lot better at Crafton. More often than not, the teachers are good, the help is available, and students just need to properly apply themselves. There will be a few professors in every student's life that will be less helpful or even a problem; however, with a little effort, everyone can do well enough to get a degree or transfer to a four-year university.

Degrees or transfers are two of the three primary goals of Crafton Hills. The third is specialized education in things like medical and emergency services fields. From the Basic Skills Initiative for students with substandard skills to classes like "Multivariable Calculus" for those looking for something more advanced, Crafton meets these goals, in addition to offering flexible schedules, from early-morning to late-evening classes. All it takes is effort on the part of the student to match what the school offers.
