5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Campus resources are great and new too their are many resources and the library is awesome also the tutoring center.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: the wireless access is kind of weak but the printing on campus is good, network speed is fair.

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.

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.

Campus Resources: It has a large amount of learning resources. I love the library, it looks very nice and modernized.

There are many resources on campus for the students to use. Crafton has the exceptional Learning Resource Center (LRC), which houses the library, dozens of open access computers, a tutoring center, event amphitheater, contract teacher offices, a patio for other events, and several conference rooms for studying. The conference rooms each have room for 10 people, a whiteboard, and independent climate controls. In fact, the only thing it does not have is enough reliable printers. The LRC is not the only place with computers. Most every classroom has a computer-driven overhead projector and several have ELMO systems for displaying physical objects, handwritten notes, and so on. There are several computer classrooms, and one is also an open lab most of the day. Every year or two, one of the computer rooms will get new computers. As this happens, the oldest machines are cycled out, which keeps the campus relatively up-to-date.

One thing that Crafton does not yet have is its own athletic program. For now, athletes can study at Crafton and go to the sister college, San Bernardino Valley College, for athletics. However, with the aquatics center that was joint developed with the City of Yucaipa, there is hope that the local high school water polo team will have a place to continue their sport. It also adds to the existing physical education classes; the PE classes are another place where the small campus packs in a surprising number. The required four units of health or physical education can be taken in dance, golf, weight training, martial arts, yoga, and others. The campus has a long history of supporting physical activity and has facilities for all of these sports. With the aquatics center, swimming should soon join the ranks of available classes and be a cool activity in the warmer months that California enjoys.

Special Computer Discounts
Crafton has a bulk of licenses that extend to student computers. They are also listed in the student trial systems for most major software, which can let you use major commercial programs for anywhere from six months to several years. CollegeBuys also offers discounts of up to 85 percent off on a wide range of products. Hardware-wise, it is limited to what specials companies offer students, and the school has nothing specific.
Campus Events/Traditions
  • Honors Convocation and Regalia: At the end of every spring semester, there is the Honors Convocation and Regalia. This event recognizes the recipients of scholarships, honor students, and other outstanding students.
  • Performing Arts Center shows: There are usually two to five events in the Performing Arts Center every semester. Past events have included plays, musical presentations, shows of cultural interest, and guest speakers. Most events run for three days, giving plenty of chances to enjoy them.
Unique Features
  • Community atmosphere: Crafton Hills is a little remote from the main cities in the area, which creates a community atmosphere where the students can feel safer. The nearby cities have colleges with a higher crime rate. By being just a short drive away, Crafton stays away from these incidents.
  • Firefighters and EMTs: Crafton Hills has exceptionally well-regarded firefighting and emergency medical technician programs. Local, state, and federal agencies recruit directly from the College. There are even ties to related high school programs that get people into these professions in a very short time.
