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.

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.

2 College Freshman

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

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.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: the social scene is lively, facilities are very nice, campus life is great.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: computer labs are open throughout the day, printing on campus is available, network reliability and speed is fast and convenient, wireless access is great.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: My job allows me to be on the computer all day and I use what I learn in school. I get my hands on practice. the world is all about the latest technology and that's a main aspect for my major so its great to know that I can manage well with technology more than others.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I was at a different college before this one and I found it more convenient here than going the distance when I can take the same classes here. Its really nice and clean. The staff all over is really nice and welcoming. They actually want to help. I works really good with my work schedule and found all the classes I needed in time.

College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have not experienced the admissions office here. Seems helpful when I go into admissions which is right next door. The staff looks willing to help and welcoming.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Many have either full time jobs or two jobs. There's other students who aren't sure what major they are going to pursue and feel that they "have" to go to school not really because they want too. Then there's a good amount of people who really do want to be there in school. They want to transfer and graduate!

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computer network at Santiago Canyon College is up-to-date. Assignments that require a computer can be done in the labs. The computer labs are big, have all the basic and necessary programs. Also the network is reliable, I have not had a computer freeze or malfunction while using it. Students can use the printers either wirelessly or not.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Because of cut backs there are a lot less hours for resources to be open, such as the library.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I enjoy online classes because they allow me to do my work without teachers bothering me.

4 College Senior

Career Services: The counselors do a really good job in helping you decide what your major should be and to take enough classes to transfer.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think the tuition is very fair and you do get your moneys worth. With that being said, the cost per unit almost doubled in my two years there from the time I started to my last semester.
