My school is what I would consider an average community college. About half the students have full time jobs and/or families and the other half seem to be fresh out of high school. Because of this the social interactions at school vary quite wildly. The professors at Shasta College are unfortunately, hit and miss. Some professors truly take an interest in teaching their students and enjoy what they do, while others seem to be bored or unhappy with their job. A teacher who is uninterested in their subject makes for a difficult class!

I felt like most of my professors really cared about my grades which was so nice since it was my first semester at college. I did, however, feel very confused in registering because I had never done it before and there were no real clear instructions how to go about getting in classes. Once you do it though, it becomes very easy. I honestly didn't have a lot of homework and didn't have to study very much and I got a 3.8 GPA. There are amazing options at Shasta such as Math lab and the Science Learning Center where you can go if you need extra help learning a subject. It's a great option and it's free! I really love Shasta, and I definitely recommend it because of it's academic curriculum and how much they care for students.

I honestly love all the professors I've had in the past. Shasta College is great. The class registration process is smooth and easy. The only reason I haven't registered is that I still owe the school; I pay out-of-state tuition. The tutoring centers are very helpful. I actually work at the math learning center. I was not really good to english, but the writing center is the major reason why I improved in english. It's all good at Shasta College. Love it!
