Career Services: Reedley College helps students to find internships around the area. On top of this, if tutors transfer to the main college nearby (Fresno State) then they can stay on as tutors at Reedley. There are quite a few career opportunities that Reedley College offers to its students.

Overall Experience: It may seem like I don't like attending Reedley College, but because it's close to home and is in an excellent location with great professors, I'd choose it over again in less than a heartbeat. I'd graduated from high school with a 4.3+ cumulative GPA so when I announced that I planned to go to Reedley, my friends and teachers were shocked (though my family understood my personal choice to save money). It was embarrassing at first, seeing all my friends go off to big cities - LA, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Washington D.C. - but I came to understand this year that those choices best suited them while my experience at Reedley College best suits who I am and how I wish to go through college. I'm no longer embarrassed to say that I, a girl who never once in her academic career received a B in any class, am attending Reedley's community college. I'm saving up money, living at home with my family which I love dearly, and enjoying my relaxed schedule which allows me time to pursue my other passions in life. Going to a JC isn't beneath anyone; certain college experiences suit certain people and I'm a junior college girl (for the next year and a half)!

Campus Resources: The library is excellent! There's a computer lab at one end and a tutoring center at the other. Reedley is very sport-oriented so the field, track, gym, tennis courts, etc. are in amazing condition and used quite often. Classrooms are organized by subject so the areas on campus usually stick to a specific subject which makes finding classes much easier.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: Computers are available all over campus, as well as outlets if a student should bring their own. The only reason that I selected "It's okay" as my rating is because the internet is so darn hard to connect to and when I finally manage to, it's incredibly slow!

3 College Student

Student Body: Reedley doesn't seem to make these topics popular knowledge. I've only seen one reminder to vote for student body posted this semester. The college is exceptionally diverse, though - much more than I am used to coming from Dinuba High.

3 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Overall, I believe that Reedley College is a very average school regarding the mentioned topics. Classes and assignments are straightforward and I have not yet had to transfer credits.

5 College Student

Academic Experience: There are tons of interesting English classes available at Reedley College (even if the reading material isn't up to my standards, not to sound snobby!). I'm entering my application to work in the Writing Center on campus so that will help pay for my weekly gas money. It will be a great experience to help my peers in a group setting without having the pressure of a teacher's expecting gaze in the room. That's one unique opportunity for English majors (or anyone who needs a job with exceptional grades in English classes) that Reedley offers.

2 College Student

Academic Experience: What I don't like about Reedley (and many colleges in California) is that there are programs that are intended to help students from lower-income homes which ultimately hinder other students. I, personally, come from a family with very little money and had to pay for my freshman year myself. When I tried to apply for one such program, I did not qualify because of the fact that my father had graduated from college. Opportunities should be offered not because of parents but because of students. EOPS (which I believe is the title of the program) helps many students at Reedley since the majority qualify which leaves the rest of us with later registration dates, regularly priced textbooks, etc.

4 College Student

Online Courses: I've only taken one online course (last semester) and it was a hybrid class which is half in class and half online. Next year, however, I'm signed up for two. The online courses are really good at Reedley, though, because all teachers get really into getting students to keep track of everything on Blackboard.

3 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: My first year of college was covered by the 5 scholarships that I got my senior year of high school (including my laptop). Books are EXTREMELY expensive and the school makes it rather difficult to get the required textbooks elsewhere because students must go into the library to find out which books are needed for which class. It's frustrating because in most of my classes, we don't even touch the books for the whole semester! I have the Board of Governor's fee-waiver so my tuition was paid but I'm having to take on extra work to afford my books for sophomore year.

3 College Student

Facilities: I'm going to a community college for my Associates (to save on money) so I wasn't expecting very much from the school. My favorite part of the campus is the trail behind the school that leads to the river. Health just became an important aspect of my life this year when I had a bit of an eye-opener so I take several trails every morning before school. I feel safe there and I'm proud that I have something at my tiny college that most of my friends who went to UCs and CSUs don't have. There is an overall friendly atmosphere on campus, which is to be expected from small town Reedley, Ca.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience at this school is what can be expected. It is not spectacular in the sense that it has nice amenities and a plethora of resources. However, most importantly, I feel that I am receiving a quality education and it is certainly worth what I am paying.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Resources on campus are not very substantial. The library is nice and the group study rooms are useful but it is not much of a library in the sense of books available. The school does, however, provide a variety of academic databases available to students and this is extremely helpful for some classes. There is also an extra computer lab called "the pit" which is useful to students who do not have access to a personal computer or to the internet. The printing services are also easy to use but can be costly if used often.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computer labs at school are great and there are always plenty of computers available to use. Printing on campus is simple but requires you to carry cash (and the staff are not helpful when it comes to making change). This can be costly if used often - for instance, if you do not have a printer at home. The network is reliable if working on a school computer - although it is not exactly fast. However, I often have trouble connecting and loading data if I am connecting to wireless from my personal laptop.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The student body at my school is only slightly diverse in a few areas. Although there is some ethnic diversity, most of the students are middle or upper-middle class and many come from republican and religious backgrounds. The younger students seem to care little about their academic success, however, more mature students are very involved in their studies and are very helpful and friendly.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: As this is mainly a transfer institution, my major is not very specific. Due to the fact that I have a science major, however, my workload is heavier than those with different majors.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Overall I am very satisfied with my academic experience at this school. Professors vary greatly in many aspects, however, I have recently had the pleasure of being taught by some of the most passionate, thought-provoking, knowledgeable, and helpful professors I have ever had. My workload depends greatly upon the subject and instructor but typically is difficult yet manageable.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online classes include minimal instructor-student and student-student interaction. In my opinion, however, this is to be expected. Most students take online classes because they have the ability and drive to learn on their own and online classes allow more flexibility.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: This school is designed for students to transfer credits to other institutions, however, many credits from other schools are non-transferrable.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The facilities at my school are very new as it was built fairly recently. However, there is nothing particularly spectacular about it.

1 College Junior

Career Services: During my time at this institution I have never been informed that there is a career center or alumni network. To be fair, however, most students use this college as a "stepping stone" to get to the next level of their educational goals.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I am taking an online Child Development class and I am so happy with my decision. It is so convenient with my other classes and work schedule. There is a lot more reading to do, but I don't mind. The professor is very accessible for answering questions and students can contact each other on discussion boards.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have made many new connections by getting involved on campus. I am loving my college classes for my major and am excited about school.

5 College Junior

Career Services: The classes offered at Reedley are general ed classes that are transferable credits for Cal State Fresno. It is a very easy process for a hardworking student to transfer to Fresno State.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Most people that go to school here rely on the financial aid money that is received due to low income. Most people don't know that they are eligible for any cash aid until they are almost done with school. People need to use the resources provided because it can help tremendously for a student going to school and supporting a family.
