4 College Senior

Online Courses: The online classes that I have taken have been good. I have only had one class with a "bad" professor, but I would recommend them to students that do not have the availability to take all of their classes on campus. It takes some getting used to, especially when it comes to contacting the professor. There can be a delay when interacting with students and professors, but it is manageable. The course work is well balanced and distributed throughout the semester and is easy to manage if taking other classes.

Academic Experience: My major of Physics does not have many others to share the experience with, but there are plenty of Engineering students. The workload is tough, but that is something that I was willing to take on. Anyone looking into majoring in Physics or Engineering should be prepared to work for their grades.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: My experience at Crafton Hills College so has been mixed. Most of my professors have been great, but I have had the occasional bad professor. Overall, I have had a nice time at Crafton.

Academic Flexibility: It really all depends on you. We all have lives to live and if you're serious about your education/career you would have to fix your flexibility around your classes just like you would do with your job.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: I'm currently taking my first online class and I must say, it is very convenient considering I have a 10 month old. He's my first child but I knew that I wanted to continue with school so I took online classes into consideration.

5 College Junior

Career Services: Everything at this school is specifically to help you for your best.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far my experience with my teachers have been straight forward and amazing. The professors aren't as strict as everyone said they'd be, in High School. They're reasonable.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I think it's great because if you're really serious about your major then getting into those programs will not only help you get a job right away, it will look good on your resume.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: This is a great school if you plan on going in the medical field or firefighter department. Their programs are the best!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Many of the students are dedicated to their studies, but most of them plan to transfer to a university. The degree is a degree. It's not held to the standards of an Ivy League school, but it still shows completion of college level courses.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Our school is very crowded, so it's hard to get all of the classes that you want/need. It's important to get involved for two reasons: 1. To get to know new people and make your time at Crafton fun and memorable and 2. Some activities actually get you priority registration, meaning more classes!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the school. It's a beautiful campus, always clean and well maintained. If I could go back to high school, I would make sure that I took a foreign language only because this school is a community college. In other words, it feels like a big high school. I wish I was at a university, but if I had to go to a JC, it would be this one time and time again.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had some bad professors and good professors. I believe the majority want students to succeed. Although many courses at the college resemble high school courses. There's not much variety in the sciences. The class sizes are fairly small. Many of the math courses assign online homework which I think is just insane.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm not really that fond of how much of an impact a degree from Crafton has on future work. I know that an associates degree may boost income at a minimum wage job but nothing else.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I never had the chance to grow at Crafton. As a Biology major, I learned a few things about experimentation but nothing outside of the classroom setting. There's no specialization in the sciences.

1 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Not good at transferring students into Crafton, I had a whole year of schooling that they would not transfer in

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Easy to learn, good flexibilt

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Good school and okay professors

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is a good school, but lacks in student environment

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is a relaxing environment and the staff are very friendly!

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I think it's great that there are so many different options for classes on different days and times. I can choose which subject I want to go to before another one, I can choose how many days of the week I want to be at school, etc. I understand that it gets harder after you've passed all of your general education classes to find the more specialized classes, but I do still think that Crafton Hills gives you enough options to work with.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I think they are great because of how much easier it is to be able to do things on your time frame and not have someone standing over you expecting to have a specific amount of work or material turned in at one specific time. It's just easier because if I get home late from work and I'm wide awake and want to work on my class assignment at 1am, I can.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, I've had really great professors. Some more straightforward than others, but they are always willing to work with you and your specific situation and answer any questions you might have.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Crafton Hills is a great school as far as professors and the school is under construction so it does have nicer buildings coming in. I just feel like the entire process of actually starting school there was really confusing to people that have never been through the experience of applying for college before. They lead us through some big details, but then failed to mention some steps in starting college or getting certain things done.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The counseling office has great staff who truly want to help students succeed. They are willing help and enjoy doing so.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Crafton Hills is a good school to begin your educational career, even on a nontraditional schedule. With tutors for English and math at all levels and courses from pre-college to second year, Crafton offers a wide range of education. There is always someone available to help you go where you want with your education. Some teachers and staff are harder to reach than others and the Financial Aid Office can be a real problem, but overall, students have what they need to succeed and grow. Part of this is a tedious process, though—like applying, getting an educational plan, and seeing about financial aid. This may be a bit mechanical or grueling, especially if there are any issues that are not well addressed. It is those moments that are generally hardest to deal with as a student. The good news is that the educational part is a lot better at Crafton. More often than not, the teachers are good, the help is available, and students just need to properly apply themselves. There will be a few professors in every student's life that will be less helpful or even a problem; however, with a little effort, everyone can do well enough to get a degree or transfer to a four-year university.

Degrees or transfers are two of the three primary goals of Crafton Hills. The third is specialized education in things like medical and emergency services fields. From the Basic Skills Initiative for students with substandard skills to classes like "Multivariable Calculus" for those looking for something more advanced, Crafton meets these goals, in addition to offering flexible schedules, from early-morning to late-evening classes. All it takes is effort on the part of the student to match what the school offers.
