The classes and professors are great! The teachers are accessible and provide tons of helpful information about the course. Our library is an amazing place to study quietly by yourself or get help from tutors regarding mathematics or English.

Edgar - 06/16/2020

Overall, this is a small campus which means that the class sizes are also small. There is a more one on one interaction with the professor and plenty of assistance on campus and online. Tuition is very affordable if you do not get financial aid. Teachers and counselors are always available to assist you with any questions.

Jennifer - 09/17/2019

It's pretty not very lively there really is not much to do besides go to class, but even then you may not know anyone so it is extremely boring english professers honestly aren't great here so if you are an english major not the school to be attending

Kalynn - 04/25/2019

The school is pretty average for a community college; however, the professors are extremely helpful. Every professor I've had has made the extra effort to help their students succeed and learn. Most of them teach at other schools and have a variety of different backgrounds. Although I checked rate my professor before choosing any class, I still think that the school hires some pretty good ones. Aside from that, the rest of the staff is just okay. The people at the offices aren't very friendly and sometimes come off as rude. If you're looking for a community college just for the eduction, then I think you will be able to have a good experience.

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

    If I went back in time to speak to myself as a high school senior, the first thing I would tell myslef is to save, save, save! College is not cheap. But along with the extra money that could've helped, I would've learned to expense myself and become more financially wise. The second word of advice would be buckle down, do that work, study for those tests, and apply for as many scholarships possible. The third word of advice would be to really inquire further into what I want to achieve after I graduate, where I see myself in the future, and what subject or major am I deeply interested in and passionate about enough to pursue. And fourth and finally, I would tell myself to go for that problem in math that everybody stumbles over, raise your hand when you have an opinion about something in history class, be the person that's bold enough to stand in front of your english class to express ideals, push your mind to acquire, attain, and accomplish in all the knowledge and wisdom your teachers have to share with you, and don't be afraid, everything's gonna be alright.

  4. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    Well I believe the kind of person that isn't self-determining, focused or motivated should definitely keep distance from this college and any college in general. I say that because college is a very big leap from high school. It isn't like going from elementary school to middle school, or from middle school to high school, because you have to attain independence and responsibility quick, and sometimes you're in it on your own. You would really have to do a lot of maturing and keep your focal point as the drive that leads you to success.

    The best thing about Yuba College is the optimism and the endurance of the students and staff. Just look around Yuba City and Marysville with the high rates of homelessness, joblessness, and poverty and you will see that many students are in an uphill struggle to succeed. It is a bit bleak sometimes, but the people of Yuba College don't give up, and I think that the care and the passion of everyone here is very inspiring.
