As long as you check ratemyprofessor.com, everything is great! It is essential to know ahead of time the workload, personalities of professors, and difficulties of tests that go along with each and every class. There are some professors who are so king and understanding to the fact that some students take more than 15 units a semester while trying to maintain a job (or two), while there are others who are not so understanding. But, that is just how some people are. I loved the psychology professors all so much-- I never ran into one (in my many classes) that I did not like. The only thing I would change is the possible choices in lab classes, which is necessary to transfer. There are not a whole lot of options, especially for students who may struggle with difficult science classes. Other than that, I love Saddleback!

Saddleback College has been rated as one of the best community colleges in California, and it is easy to see why. They offer tutoring tuned to whichever subject you need help with, have great staff, and care about their students and their futures. Saddleback's Transfer Program is helping me get the credits I need to transfer to the university of my dreams, which I am thankful. Although the school is amazing, they're pretty crowded. Parking, especially at the beginning of each semester, is tough to find. I am very excited about the construction of the new science building though!

Saddleback College has been a door-opener in my life. I went started attending this school thinking that this school did not have much to offer. Once I sat through my classes, I was amazed. The professors were knowledgeable in their field of study.

In my math class, my professor noticed me excelling in the class and offered me a position as a tutor in the LRC. That was a life changing opportunity. Because of that offer, I have changed my major to become a math professor.

If I could, I would choose my school again!
