College Senior

Career Services: I have not yet used these services

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school isn't unique. It's a typical California community college.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The professors are really here to teach and help students grow intellectually. Registration is a pain as most classes are intro classes that are needed for transferring to a UC or CSU get taken up by "priority" high school students.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: It's strictly academics here. Any outside opportunities or internships are usually saved for when one transfers to a 4-yr school. People rarely get internships on their own without school's help.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Sometimes administration is a hassle. They make a big deal over lots of little things and you might have to go to many different people before your issue is resolved.

2 College Senior

Facilities: As a community college, the school is alright. There isn't much of a social scene and most people have friends from high school nearby.

College Senior

Career Services: I've never used any post-grad services.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: Most online courses are like DIY courses. Read the book, take the exams, and complete an assignment online every now and then.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's a community college. I wish it were cheaper, but this is the cheapest it gets.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There are some new buildings. Overall it's alright.

3 College Senior

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Some teachers that I have had do not make the learning experience something to look forward to. However, I have had a philosophy class that was great.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I received more than enough financial aid from the state and from Santiago to cover my costs. Also, whenever I have gone to the Financial Aid Office, the staff has been very nice and helpful.

2 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Network reliability is terrible. The only place the internet is reliable is in the library.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I always study in the library, though there is limited space and a lot of times there are a lot of students there. Besides the library, there aren't any other study spaces for students.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: The school facilities are pretty average. There are a few new buildings to be opened this spring, but I have not experienced any of them yet.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I think the resources at Santiago Canyon College vary in quality depending on what they are. The library at SCC is amazing. It is really a place that is a haven for a student that wants a quiet place to study and the selection of books, magazine, journals, etc is amazing. The science and humanities building are brand new and are really great facilities for students however the science labs definitely need updating on the inside. Unfortunately the math classrooms and a few humanities classrooms really need updating. As far as student centers are concerned there is a "student lounge" but it's honestly pretty pathetic considering there's only two tables for students to sit at. The student lounge is also not convenient to go to because it's at the top of a hill on the complete opposite side of where most of the classrooms are. The student health center is amazing and really accessible for students. They offer so services to students for little to no cost. SCC doesn't have a fitness center exclusively for students but they technically have a fitness center that is open to the public at certain times of the week for small fees. When it comes to clubs and athletics, there are only a few sports teams and a few student led clubs.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I have personally not used the Career Services Center at my school because I already have a job I got on my own however do know that the Career Center provides a lot of great information and connections for students looking for jobs.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Overall I feel that my education at community college has been great and worth the money that my family and I have invested into it. I did not qualify for financial aid for whatever reason but because of the tuition costs at community colleges being pretty reasonable, we (my family and I) were able to find a way to cover the costs.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am a business major and have been taking a lot of economics classes. My professors are very helpful and great at teaching their subjects. They do a great job relating the material to real life situations and not just reading from powerpoint slides.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The main reason I chose this school was because of how close it was to my home. I attended one other junior college before transferring and moving here and I am much happier at SCC. Some of the classes I took did not transfer and SCC doesn't offer as many intersession classes as other junior colleges, but they have many other courses to choose from. I am a Marine Corps Veteran and the Veterans Center is not as helpful at SCC as it is at other schools. The convenience of the school outweighs the attentiveness towards veterans at other schools.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Staff is highly trained, with excellent knowledge. Rigorous courses that are no less effective than UC's or Universities. Small campus provides students with an "high school" layout.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: unique features like blackboard, never overwelming workload, registration process is simple, professor/student relationship very respectful, and peer-to-peer interaction is very social able.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: athletic centers are increasing, student centers are fun, library is very nice and big, and general campus aesthetics are lively.
