4 College Student

Online Courses: Easy to navigate and understand. I sufficiently learned what I was studying.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: It's a pretty cool school for such a small area. Lots of opportunities and help and generally a good experience.

3 College Student

Student Body: All of these people are the people I went to high school with, so I'd say they're alright.

4 College Student

Academic Flexibility: The school is geared towards transfer students, which is very helpful.

5 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: This is easily the cheapest school on the west coast. But the classes aren't "cheap" even so.

College Student

Career Services: I can't be positive of what they are, since I haven't partaken in them. But from what I've seen, there's a special place students can go to to get help with applications and resumes.

4 College Student

Campus Resources: There are a lot of opportunities for us students here at Shasta College! Everywhere I go, I feel safe knowing that the faculty is trying to prepare me for my future and prosperity.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Some classes are only offered once a year, at only one certain time of the day, which is really frustrating. The counselors sometimes don't know what they are doing so when it comes to transferable credits it is really hard to deal with them.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: The online courses are educational, but not fulfilling because you are not in a classroom interacting with the professor and other students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class sizes are average for a community college. There professors are very helpful and kind. They teach their material thoroughly but it just seems really easy.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am just completing my general educations here, so there are no prospects for me to really take advantage of.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I qualify for the BOG fee waiver, so i don't have to pay for my tuition. I am getting my education payed for so i really can't complain. Although there are big lines at the financial office, it takes forever to get stuff done.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I have not had a chance to check out the career center completely but they do have many books

1 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: They do not offer my major at this school, i am going to have to transfer.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The academic that they offer are okay. They don't really help my major, but I have heard they have a good nursing program. All of the classes i have taken are easy and not very challenging.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: THERE ARE MANY CENTERS TO LOOK FOR HELP IN, BUT THE PEOPLE WHO WORK IN THEM DO NOT REALLY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. THE COUNSELORS ARE NOT AWARE OF THE CLASSES ONE REQUIRES TO TAKE TO TRANSFER.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: THERE ARE MANY CAUCASIAN STUDENTS AT SHASTA COLLEGE. THIS IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE DIVERSITY IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA IS NOT AS GREAT AS MIDDLE AND SOUTH CALIFORNIA. THERE ARE BIG SOCIAL DIVIDERS IN THE SHASTA COUNTY AREA, IN WHICH SHASTA COLLEGE IS LOCATED. IN SHASTA LAKE CITY THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO DO DRUGS AND LIVE OFF OF WELFARE, WHILE THERE ARE BIG PARTS OF REDDING IN WHICH REALLY RICH PEOPLE LIVE, DUE TO THE FACT THAT WE HAVE TWO HOSPITALS AND THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT MEDICAL CENTERS. THERE IS ALSO WHAT CAN "CITY FOLK" AND "REDNECKS" IN THIS AREA. ALL OF THIS FACTORS ARE REFLECTED IN SHASTA COLLEGE. IT IS PRETTY MUCH LIKE BEING IN HIGH SCHOOL AGAIN. THERE IS NO ACCEPTANCE OF ONE ANOTHER. THE RICH KIDS STILL STICK TOGETHER, THE POT HEADS HAVE THEIR OWN GROUP, THERE ARE ALSO THE MUSIC "WEIRDOS" AS THEY ARE CALLED THERE, AND THE HIPSTERS, AND COUNTRY. THERE ARE ALL DIFFERENT SOCIAL GROUPS AND THERE IS NOT MUCH ACCEPTANCE FOR ONE ANOTHER.

5 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: Definitely feel it was worth my time and money.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: In my time in the early childhood education center I felt like I gained a second family. Such an amazing experience there! General ed classes were okay, a few of them had super professors, but most were detached or not completely on topic.

4 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I prefer the in-class experience because there is more room for communication and more knowledge to be shared.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had a terrible experience with the counseling to setting up my classes and transferring my credits. I do not think there is anything that would set my school apart from anyone, I just take great pride in my education and feel that the school does not allow students to feel they can achieve to their fullest.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I feel that for the cost of living, and school materials such as supplies, courses and such is so expensive and feel that for the price I pay it is not worth it. The teachers are not well educated many are new, and have a limited number of students they can enroll into class. I have not received financial aid yet, and it has been a very difficult and long process.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: As far as the academics are concerned for my school they do not have much to chose from, and many students do not seem happy. I did not feel welcomed during my class registration process and when I talked to the counselor about taking classes they did not seem to be interested to help me.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: At my current school they unfortunately do not offer much for there students in the specific major I am looking to finish with is nutrition/dietician. However I am looking to transfer to a State University after fall of 2014 to better achieve my goals. I am not very pleased with my school at this time, and wish they had more to offer.

3 College Senior

Student Body: My school is very small at Shasta College but my previous school at Santa Barbara City College was very much involved with the student body and many students including myself were accepted into one or more of these programs.
