3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Though available, I have not had any experience with online courses.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: I feel that the student body is very diverse as far as all of the above topics (ethnic, economic, political, religious, and sexual). There are clubs and resources for anyone with any background to feel welcome and accepted based on any socioeconomic background.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The value of the education at community college is very fair. The financial aid office is always a nightmare with a wait time of up to 3 hours, and no appointment system.

2 College Sophomore

Career Services: The only post-grad employment services are for the certificate programs for which I am not enrolled. i.e. Pharmacy Technician, EMT, Firefighting. etc..

I have not been made aware of any sort of alumni network.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: It is difficult to register for core classes because there are so many community college students. The curriculum is difficult, but I feel like it is a good preparation for university level classes. Biology courses offer paid summer internship opportunities in field research.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Registering for classes is based on a tier system, who ever the school decides needs the courses more than others, gets to register first, followed by the next school-decided priority, and so on up to 7 tiers of priority levels.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Helpful, knowledgeable staff in all of the campus resources.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: We have an incredible library with thoughtful staff helping students who are in need. The campus is very quaint and walk-able friendly. In the middle of 2015, there will be a new student center in the center of the campus, which I'm very excited about. Plus, most professor are very friendly and care about our education.

5 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I have had an online Music, Art History, and Computer course. All of which have been great experiences. The professors are really great on getting back to you quickly and post helpful links and notes to make up for the lack of face-to-face interaction. Assignments have all been spaced out appropriately and grades were always known from the database.

5 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: There's great diversity at my campus. Being an art/art history major I mostly associate with other art majors, but in the art department alone there is a diversity among students based on race, religion, their background. It brings new and exciting things to art shows. In my other classes everyone is very helpful to those of other majors who may not like/easily understand a class topic. I suck at math/computers but with help from classmates who were understanding that that isn't my area of interest I was able to pass my classes with high grades.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: I am not involved with any sports so I can't really review on that, besides that I've heard the new gym and equipment is great. I mostly utilize the library, study/resting areas, and art classrooms for when I'm working on my art projects. I am also a student worker for the art department and I love that we have two gallery spaces on campus and opening receptions to try to get the art classes to come out and enjoy the work. Overall I really love it here, especially since my mother went here also. I'm going to miss it when I transfer for my BA.

Overall Experience: The professes are wonderful they care about you and will take time to help you in ways that you need. There are many different teaching styles available for everyone.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school would be my gate way to my full degree that I am after.

5 College Senior

Student Body: I believe we are all very social it just takes that one person to step out and say hello. Then to create a lasting relationship.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I believe they do a good job to list out all the fees and explain what goes where. But my problem is there should be an option to have a choice between a bus pass or a parking pass in the fees. Not having to pay for a bus pass and then if you don't use the service having to buy a parking pass on top of that.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: All resources are helpful. They are easy to access and to take advantage of. This campus is happy and inviting. Wide open space up on a hill.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: This school is amazing compared to my last. They help me greatly and the teachers teach the class. These teaches care about how you do and will do what they can to help you. There are also centers that will help with work.

5 College Junior

Career Services: They have a lot of resources to help a student out

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.
