Butte college is a very nice community college. One of my favorite things about Butte is the professors, most of the professors are Grade A, you can tell that they want you to succeed. They are almost always available and willing to help. Another benefit is location they are located among rolling green hills, it’s a truly beautiful campus. Although they are located outside of any city they do offer a schedule of free bus rides.

I think Butte College is a great school with good teachers. I have only been during Covid so it has taken some getting used to for myself and the teachers. The price is great, especially if you are a local because it is free when you take the right steps.

The students support one another and it is really easy to talk to anyone. There is a wide variety of opportunities available for anyone to find a club or event or sport such as soccer, Maker Space, and the Horiculture Club.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If there was one thing that I know now and wish I could tell myself in high school, it would have to be that: if I want anything in this world, it takes more than wishing for it. In high school, I wanted my future to be planned out and organized; a smooth ride. However, now that I am older and considerably wiser, I now realize that anything good in this world does not come without hard work. I would tell my high school self that the road ahead is rough, and there is no one that's going to help you. So, you must help yourself. Nothing about college life is easy: the juggling of a professional, scholastic, and social live; the constant reading and writing; the seemingly overbearing exams; and not to mention the cost. With all of these stresses though, the only thing stopping a person from succeeding is oneself. I would tell the younger me that, while the road ahead won't be easy, hard word, dedication, and discipline are the only tools you need to build a successful future.
