4 College Junior

Online Courses: I have taken online and "hybrid" (classroom +online) classes. As far as workload is concerned, I believe the professor makes the difference, especially regarding time management (prompt grading, deadlines, feedback). I had a pleasant experience.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: When it comes to courses and professors, topics are covered by authorities on the subjects. Professors bring their experience into the classroom. This benefits me as a student.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I look forward to beginning a career as a Respiratory Therapist. I get to sample what my life will be like in the clinical setting during clinical rotations in area hospitals.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: As a Respiratory Care Program student, the curriculum/workload is demanding and the clinical rotations are rewarding.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am a returning student. I actually chose Crafton Hills College again because of my previous experience.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Quite helpful, supportive teachers, good environment.

Just asking questions on where to go, and what to look for can help one achieve success.

Making connections is very helpful in the long run.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Crafton is a college best suited for beginning college students. There's not really a whole lot going on, which makes it easier to focus on your class.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Sometimes semesters are good and a variety and others are horrible and only have one professor teaching a class instead of having five. Mostly all my credits transferred when I went to Arizona State.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online can benefit if you are someone to work faster at your own paste. The registration was the same normal classroom experience. Professors for online are usually good quick with replying but recently I had a professor that was new and was not the greatest.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: The career is very useful. I did not really use it because I already knew what i was doing the counselors helped me more than anything keep myself on track.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They don't offer many different courses really. You have to keep in mind that it is just a 2 year college. Someone is just there to get their general education done and then transfer to a 4 year. The class sizes are usually 20-30 people unless in a lab set up it is 50+ people.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am rarely on the campus except for class and then I leave so I really would not know much about career opportunities. I know they have job fairs here and there for seasonal.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The program of sociology is great. The head of the department is great and all the professors are great and very understanding.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall the campus is great just admissions and financial aid is not the greatest they are super rude. The professors on the campus are terrific and are there for you when you need them. The professors are understandable and understand things come up just need to communicate with them.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Its pretty nice because the school is so close to home so its easy to schedule around work.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: The online classes are just hard because of the programs used.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: Its not the best but not horrible.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I rave about the class sizes to others. Although, variety of courses is average.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Counselors/career services are very willing to help.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The best part of my academic experience is the personal relationship the professors build with their students. This is a result of small class sizes I presume.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, school is good academically. The hardest part for me is the stress from paying for it and making new friends.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The counselors don't really help you find the right courses you need to take in order to transfer and they are notorious for giving you a list of more courses than you actually need for graduation so it ends up wasting your money. They are also very slow about delivering financial aid and scholarships.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From my experience so far, I'd say things have been pretty good as the teachers are helpful, and definitely beats the typical '300 in one big lecture room' as you're more-or-less still one on one with professors who would be more then happy to help you pass their classes. Definitely go for FAFSA and the BOG waiver early as they help a lot with costs, even though classes aren't too costly but still

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like school very much. College is different from High School. We get to pick out own schedule, less drama and it is the only time you go without anyone forcing you. At Crafton Hills they always have cool events going on for their students and families. They have really cool hiking class and we go on the mountains and look at the views. The professors are really nice and helpful. They always help us with what we need.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The hardest thing is to get your foot in the door. Filling through all the paperwork at admissions is a nightmare and a half, and not all the personal working there are willing to help you or even know how. You might need to make several trips to the college before you're probably registered. Once registered, attending Crafton is pretty straightforward; all college-related information is available online, either through their main site or WebAdvisor or Blackboard, whether your interested in clubs, transferring, classes for the next semester, etc. They also host a lot of on-campus workshops to teach students basic skills for both college and ever day life. As far as a community college, it's decent. I just wish it was more organized.

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.
