I am entering my second semester at San Jac and have been very happy with the experience. Class registration is done online and there is a freshman orientation that will walk you through your first registration. I had one professor (in English) that I felt was sub-par, but the others were all very good and went out of their way to help their students. There are many ways to get extra help for free. Tutoring is offered in math, writing and science. The &amp;quot;student success center&amp;quot; is open from 8 AM until 7 PM and help is available on a walk-in basis. Some classes (like Anatomy &amp;amp; Physiology) also offer &amp;quot;supplimental instruction&amp;quot;. These are classes offered twice weekly by former students. It&amp;#39;s very helpful to keep up with the vast amount of information and is a chance to ask questions and work on anything you&amp;#39;re having problems with. I strongly urge you to take advantage of all of the extra help offered at no charge!

I Love My School! San Jac has been a great experience. All of my professors have been wonderful and most have a great passion for what they teach, giving me a better in-class experience. Since having joined two student organizations, I have attended many of San Jacinto's fun and interesting events. The faculty and staff show great pride in all of San Jac's student organizations, allowing students to better enjoy planning and attending the various campus events. I have had very few problems with registration and have had an easy and smooth processes transitioning from a duel-credit student to a full-time college student. Their constantly expanding campus has a wonderful, welcoming environment which makes the college experience fun and enjoyable. I am very happy to be here and am glad that San Jac has given me the opportunity to complete an associate's degree at the age of eighteen.

The Student Body at San Jac Community College are mostly Hispanic and come from bad neighborhoods. There are regular shootings. Sometimes classes are canceled just because of shootings at night. There have been several this year in the early morning as well. I had a 7 am class, and I found myself scared to walk from the car parking lot to the main building. School shouldn't be the place you have to worry about being safe. It is a place you should trying to excel at. For now I am currently enrolled and I have decided to take classes in the summer just so I can transfer to Texas A&M faster!
