4 College Freshman

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.

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.

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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are many resources on campus for the students to use. Crafton has the exceptional Learning Resource Center (LRC), which houses the library, dozens of open access computers, a tutoring center, event amphitheater, contract teacher offices, a patio for other events, and several conference rooms for studying. The conference rooms each have room for 10 people, a whiteboard, and independent climate controls. In fact, the only thing it does not have is enough reliable printers. The LRC is not the only place with computers. Most every classroom has a computer-driven overhead projector and several have ELMO systems for displaying physical objects, handwritten notes, and so on. There are several computer classrooms, and one is also an open lab most of the day. Every year or two, one of the computer rooms will get new computers. As this happens, the oldest machines are cycled out, which keeps the campus relatively up-to-date.

One thing that Crafton does not yet have is its own athletic program. For now, athletes can study at Crafton and go to the sister college, San Bernardino Valley College, for athletics. However, with the aquatics center that was joint developed with the City of Yucaipa, there is hope that the local high school water polo team will have a place to continue their sport. It also adds to the existing physical education classes; the PE classes are another place where the small campus packs in a surprising number. The required four units of health or physical education can be taken in dance, golf, weight training, martial arts, yoga, and others. The campus has a long history of supporting physical activity and has facilities for all of these sports. With the aquatics center, swimming should soon join the ranks of available classes and be a cool activity in the warmer months that California enjoys.

Special Computer Discounts
Crafton has a bulk of licenses that extend to student computers. They are also listed in the student trial systems for most major software, which can let you use major commercial programs for anywhere from six months to several years. CollegeBuys also offers discounts of up to 85 percent off on a wide range of products. Hardware-wise, it is limited to what specials companies offer students, and the school has nothing specific.
Campus Events/Traditions
  • Honors Convocation and Regalia: At the end of every spring semester, there is the Honors Convocation and Regalia. This event recognizes the recipients of scholarships, honor students, and other outstanding students.
  • Performing Arts Center shows: There are usually two to five events in the Performing Arts Center every semester. Past events have included plays, musical presentations, shows of cultural interest, and guest speakers. Most events run for three days, giving plenty of chances to enjoy them.
Unique Features
  • Community atmosphere: Crafton Hills is a little remote from the main cities in the area, which creates a community atmosphere where the students can feel safer. The nearby cities have colleges with a higher crime rate. By being just a short drive away, Crafton stays away from these incidents.
  • Firefighters and EMTs: Crafton Hills has exceptionally well-regarded firefighting and emergency medical technician programs. Local, state, and federal agencies recruit directly from the College. There are even ties to related high school programs that get people into these professions in a very short time.
