College Sophomore

Student Body: Though I have observed student activities, I am normally shut inside the theatre (go theatre majors!) and rarely participate in any clubs/activities myself.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: For two years of simple Gen-Ed and a few major courses, the college is definitely worth more than what you probably will pay.

College Sophomore

Career Services: Never used their career center before or talked with alumni. Most teachers are pretty well connected outside of Cypress, though.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The business program seems to have many options for classes for us to take and the professors are amazing.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The majority of the professors I had were amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed taking their classes. Many of them encourage us the talk to each other and become friends which i feel makes the class a better environment. I have met a few professors that i still keep in contact with and grab lunch on occasion outside of school for guidance and advice.

4 College Senior

Student Body: I have met many new friends since starting at Cypress College. The study body as a whole is very friendly and I have not met anyone who was deliberately mean or hurt anyone at my time there.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The library is a great resource and the best place to study. The pond and other aesthetics are my favorite part of the campus.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I really like the school and the teachers. Have been there three years and enjoyed my entire experience.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: According to previous reviews on the Mortuary Science program at Cypress, their pass rate on state tests is 97 percent. From that high school, it would appear that the quality of courses covers all materials needed and required by the state to be fully prepared for the occupation of funeral director. After attending courses over the last two weeks, I have a high regard for the professors that are employed to teach at Cypress. Both professors are personable, straight forward and organized. The class size is medium with about 25 to 28 students total. Any questions I have had thus far have been answered respectfully and reasonably to my satisfaction.

4 College Junior

Student Body: As far as a typical student goes, I can't say there is a typical student at Cypress. From what I've seen so far, there is quite a diversity of students in regard to ethnic background. Cypress is situated in a middle class neighborhood bordered by Buena Park and Anaheim. Students in my own class range in age from 18 to about 58, both men and women equally.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: There are only two schools in California that teach Mortuary Science, Cypress College being one of them. The program consists of three semesters of course study, which when complete, will give a person enough knowledge to run all aspects of a mortuary business. The workload of course study is quite high with lots of reading involving history, sociology, psychology, religious background, and accounting. The Mortuary Science program is basically a school within a school. Run much like a nursing college, all students move through coursework together, sharing experiences, and helping one another. Students tend to be more helpful in the program with one another, as they are taking the coursework with the initial idea of wanting to help others get through death of a loved one with dignity and grace.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Once the application process for the Mortuary Science program was applied for on-line and I handed in transcripts from previous schools, I was accepted, given a student number, and an orientation date. I did not have to take testing since I was transferring. The professors involved in the program gave an eight-hour orientation to explain course plans and procedures, take a tour of the labs and help with educational materials. They explained that the coursework, in itself, was a full-time job and trying to maintain an occupation in addition to the coursework could be detrimental to finishing. They also recommended getting together with other students within the classroom to study, do projects, and generally encourage one another.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: To be accepted into the Mortuary Science program, there were several prerequisites that needed to be completed. As I had previously completed all of the assigned prerequisites at Citrus College in Covina, California and Cal Poly Pomona, I was readily accepted and have not had to deal with other courses other than the program noted. All of my transferring credits were accepted, so I felt at ease with that issue.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Having attended two junior colleges, Cypress College ranks high for campus beauty, ease of getting around and helpfulness from staff. They have a large pool centrally located, and a large library with plenty of computer facilities. In addition, the mortuary science center has its own computer lab as well. The student center is very helpful in directing students to programs, places and helping out with questions. Being new to the school, I have not gotten involved in the campus activities as yet.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Several times throughout the semester, funeral directors and or visitors within the mortuary industry come in to discuss with the class. Students are required to dress appropriately and spend time asking questions regarding job possibilities and or internships at local mortuaries. Alumni do come in at times and share their own personal experiences and how they came to acquire their own positions and possible avenues of employment associated within the mortuary industry.
