4 College Junior

Student Body: Typically students are outgoing and friendly, but some of the students keep to themselves and their card games. Most of the students are very understanding and accepting of peoples differences. I never see anybody putting another person down because of their diversity.

College Junior

Career Services: I am starting my second semester at college, so I have no experience with post-grad services. I haven't made any visits to the career center, because I have not decided on a major. I personally think some of the well-learned professors would be more helpful for learning what careers are available.

3 College Junior

Facilities: I have not had any experience with specific academic programs. I often find myself leaving campus as soon as my classes end for the day. There are some opportunities at the school to attend musicals and student success workshops; however, there aren't too many available options.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I met many good friends at this school, so the community is certainly great. The school is not necessarily unique, but it is affordable. I would love to have gone to a UC or CSU instead of this college, but I don't regret the money I have saved.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Often I am not able to take all the classes I would like because the availability is questionable for many courses. The curriculum in some classes I find to be rather enjoyable and effective; however, some classes are either uninteresting, or they are very difficult to pass (No test makeups. No sick days. Etc.)

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Although I lack experience with the resources on campus, from what I've heard, they are quite helpful. The library has many books and there is a large pool and gymnasium for the athletically inclined peoples.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The library contains numerous computers, all available to the students as long as the college is open. The internet access is adequate, and printing is available for a manageable fee.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid that I received was quite helpful, as it reduced the cost of the Units when attending college. I live at home so other costs aren't as critical. The units are certainly worth the price. Getting financial aid is as simple as talking to somebody at the college registration building or going online and filling out information there.

Online Courses: I have not taken any online courses at Shasta College. I have participated in their Moodle, which is like an online course, but all my classes have been onsite. The professors just used Moodle to have an easier time of grading, but it was not an actual online class for me.

1 College Senior

Student Body: Shasta College is in Redding, California. Redding is third most unhappy city in America, it is full of meth-heads, and it is where all the pedophiles of the nation are dropped off to live at once they're done with prison time.

While Shasta College is not as extreme, it is unhappy, it is full of people who use drugs, and there are probably pedophiles there as well, even if they are not convicted. The people at this school are either schmucks who had nowhere else to go, or older people who realized their life was not on track like they thought, or poor college students who want to get out of this town. It is hard to find the latter, but pretty easy to find the first two mentioned. The student body is not great and it is hard to find likable people when everyone seems crazy here.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am a fashion major student and the only class they provide with anything remotely like fashion is a theater lab, where you can work under their costume designer for their plays they put on. I took this class and it was mostly okay. However, Shasta College is a junior college and I do not expect them to provide much for arts classes other than the most general of education.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: I have had my fair share of horrible professors at Shasta College. There have been a few good eggs in the bunch, but mostly they are just bad. They do not know how to teach, they are probably still only around because they have tenure, and they do not care about their students. This school's professors and I just do not mix very well.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have turned in a request for sending my transcript to my four-year college of choice as early as I could, because all I have heard about transferring from this college to another is "nightmare." I was denied when I turned it in, because it was something about having to wait until May, which could be horrendous. I have heard they are just very slow and they do not do as you ask them to. As far as flexibility goes, it is not bad and I have not had a hard time with my schedule.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The counselors are not great-- in fact, they are pretty terrible as far as helping you plan your college career goes. The library is large and impressive and neat enough; I would not know for sure, however, since I rarely used it in my two years. Shasta College recently introduced a new building that is for professor offices and, more exclusively, math and writing centers. I have positive experiences with both and hence why this college is getting an "okay" rating rather than a "bad" one. The campus is well groomed as well and rather pretty, with large redwoods in the middle. I was impressed when I first started going there. As far as activities go, they always have a welcome to campus sort of deal at the beginning of the Fall semester, but I have never gone to that. It is mostly just booths advertising clubs. Overall, it really is just an okay campus as far as resources go.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Another "okay" rating. It is pretty slow, but everything else is not that bad. The computer labs are large and accommodating, as well as quiet. Printing is not as expensive as it could be, so that is a nice plus as well. Overall, not bad.

College Junior

Academic Experience: I am an undecided student, so I cannot comment much on this subject.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Although the teachers are all knowledgeable in their subjects, they often have trouble explaining the information to the students. The science teachers are well equipped for presenting demonstrations in front of the class; however, I have not seen demonstrations in any other course subject matter.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: The online classes lack an interpersonal interaction with the professor, and often the classes have no way of making up for this. Deadlines for quizzes and tests are harder to keep track of because they are in a computer, and not in the classroom. Although the information is always thorough and relevant, retaining the information is completely the responsibility of the student, whereas in a classroom often teachers will place emphasis on important points and run demonstrations of critical concepts.

3 College Student

Online Courses: I feel like it's not really personal for the learning you need.
