College of the Canyons has given me a wonderful overall experience because of how helpful and motivating the staff and students are. Professors have office hours set out so that students may see them on certain days of the week so that it works with everyone's schedules. Not only that, but everyone is just so kind and always willing to help! Not to mention, the campus is actually very nice compared to most other community colleges. The school has a University Center, where a student can go and receive their Bachelors or Masters degrees without having to worry about moving to another school or spending any extra tuition money on classes they can get right at College of the Canyons.

In my experience, online courses have been very beneficial and have allowed me to become closer to my academic goal. Though some may argue that online courses do not provide the same teacher-student interaction as sit-in classes, I feel that argument is simply too tunnel vision. All the professors I have taken online courses with have been extremely interactive within the course. For example, they have adjusted to the online platform by combining powerpoint lectures, text books, and multimedia videos etc. to teach the material. This has allowed for information to be received and understood via different perspectives, allowing for all learner-types to understand the professor.

A great student career prospect is the service provided on both of College of the Canyon's campuses, in the form of The Learning Center lab. The Learning Center (TLC) lab offers free math, english, and science tutoring 6 days a week. There is also a room dedicated to online workshops for these subjects everyday the TLC lab is open. In addition, there are special sit-in workshops that are conducted every so often. The lab is a great place to study, as there are private study rooms fit with computer outlets for the provided T.V.s as well as blackboards, and rows of computer and printer stations. Last but not least, their is a testing lab within the TLC that is dedicated to allowing students to make up any tests during all lab hours under supervision of the testing lab workers, providing teachers the security of no plagiarism occurring on their test. Overall, the TLC lab is an amazing service provided for students in helping them achieve there academic goals.
