4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: For me, Shasta College has been very convenient--not only close to my residence but I've been able to get the classes I need at workable times.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've been very happy with the quality of the courses I've taken, the classes offered, and impressed with the professionality of the professors.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It seems like there are a fair number of returning or older students like me who are coming to gain credentials for career opportunities, and a degree from Shasta is considered in the community as valid and positive.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Because Shasta dosn't have a specific transfer degree in Graphic Design, the designation--AA in Studio Arts--feels less than specific. That said, the counselors I've worked with have been diligent to help me figure out the best way to fill all the prerequisites that I'll need with credits that will transfer for my Bachelor's.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The overall attitude at the college is positive--counselors, teachers, and staff are for the most part positive and really seem to care that students have success, and the professors I've had so far have been personable, caring, and willing to go the extra mile.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school works hard in order to provide for their students and their financial needs. They do have many job programs within the campus for those interested.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: There are millions of classes to support a specific major at this school. For instance my major is in Criminal Justice this school provides me with every required class I need. The criminal justice program even has thier own simulator in order to practice the real life experience. The workload of each class varys widely from class to class, however it has yet to be too much for me to handle.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My experience with Shasta College has been great. My favorite experiences revolve around being involved in school activities as well as the softball athletic program. This school is unique in that the students themselves come from all walks of life as well the professors. I would choose this school again because it is based in a great area and is full of great people.

Overall Experience: The teachers have been supportive and friendly :)

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Overall I enjoy attending school. Favorite experience would have to be meeting many diverse people who come from different backgrounds and if possible learning about their culture and such being. If it could all be done all over again again, I would not have attended a junior college and would much rather have gone to a four year university.

4 College Student

Academic Flexibility: My schedule was a be worked with so as to allow me to have family time as well as work with my work schedule. I have not yet transferred over credits.

3 College Student

Online Courses: Having taken an online course I realized that a student needs to be fully dedicated to that class or else they can slip up and just put off having to do the work for it. For me I'd have much rather been in a classroom where I would have had a teacher explaining and going over the course work right then and there. As apposed to emailing my teacher or another student and waiting several days or hours for a response and by then I'd have already moved on from my topic.

Career Services: So far while attending Shasta college I have not heard or read anything about alumni network programs or services, for job prospects, I have heard of 2 that are Ag based, one was for a pesticide apprenticeship and the other doing some horticulture work for Disney. The student career center just helps students at the start of a semester to obtain a job on campus throughout their time here studying.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: My experience with a majority of my professors has been great, at least with those teachers that make an effort to make learning more enjoyable, unlike the teachers that are very monotone and make the experience of being in class very dreadful. The courses that are hands on and those that involve being in a classroom, are very well put together as well as structured, everything taught revolves around the courses main purpose as to what one is intended to walk away with having learned. Even from the teachers that are very boring and such, one still leaves having learned some sort of valuable credible information. Many classes that I have participated in have been relatively of normal size, at least 15-20 students, other classes just from having heard from peers can often range from 4 students to 80 in a class.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: Many students that i have met, mainly males have only come to Shasta to play sports, most are dedicated to football, they take the bare minimum of classes and often don't even attend those classes. There are many other students who are fully dedicated in their career paths and strive to take as many units as possible to help them in their field of study, but also work, showing commitment and responsibility. There haven't been many employers who come to recruit here at the college, it has mainly been military personal such as the Marines, and Navy. The schools career center is very well ran, in the sense that it really helps students obtain jobs on campus, students work in the cafeteria or in the school's own restaurant or even as part of the schools on campus security program.

Academic Experience: Due to wanting to stay within the agriculture business, Shasta provides a great program that helps students who choose to stay involved in Ag or Ag based majors. The work is strenuous due to being hands on in some of my classes, and then having to go do homework after being in a three hour lab, yet in the end it will all pay off. Here at Shasta there are great facilities for students who choose to go into a more hands on field of study or work. There is; a mechanics auto body shop,welding metal shop, wood shop, culinary program, Ag farm (only 5 out of 112 junior colleges have hands on working farms). Some of these programs help students get in touch with local business around the area which allow students to work and further their experience within their field of study.

Overall Experience: For Shasta being a junior college it is really nice being here. The atmosphere of the place is amazing, many friendly people. One of the best experiences I have had here would be making many new friends and learning about where they come from and or learning about their culture. Shasta in it's football athletic program recently in 2015 won a section title being a junior college. If I could do it all over again having my feel for what college is like, I would have gone straight to a four year university.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel like for the most part all of my teachers have been very knowledgeable and helpful. The courses are organized well and I love that I know what is expected of me.
