It is a great school. I love the atmosphere however I am a little biased. I have not been to any in-person classes yet due to the pandemic, however I have visited the campus in the past. It is very beautiful and the teachers are nice. The one thing that I will criticize is their "Canyons Promise" program. Their communication skills are awful. They removed me from the program after a year because I did not remove my FAFSA. However, I did not receive any emails regarding this concern. After addressing my concerns they basically said there was nothing they could do. Now I have to pay for the rest of my time here at COC which wasn't in my academic plan.
It is a very great school to attend.. Instructors are very helpful, and will really go the distance. It is a nice safe campus. Staff in all departments are very friendly. Students are friendly. Courses are challenging, and that helps me to achieve the good education that I have achieved at College of the Canyons. The Mesa Dept. is really good for Science Majors as well, and there are several extracurricular groups that somebody can attend after hours.
I love College Of The Canyons. It’s a great school to go to for your first two years. You save an abundant amount of money and the educational value is great. There are many teachers who are always available for any questions and most teachers want their students to be successful and pass the class. College of the Canyons has many activities and clubs such as ASG, Alpha Omega Christian Club, LGBTQ+ Club, Communications Club, and the like. COC is very welcoming and open. We have an award winning track, baseball, golf, soccer, and football teams. Many students graduate with honors and we have many resources to help us keep our grades up. There are therapist on campus you can talk to for emotional support and the health and wellness center has great resources for health test. College of the Canyons was the best community college I could’ve gone to.
College of the canyons is a wonderful school wit amazing faculty! The student can be really cliques and there are a ton of big comic book and gamer nerds there. The best is the nurses we have a lot of students training to become certified nurses. The Teachers are amazing however the food is not.

College life has taught me how to multi task and how to acclimate myself to any situation possible. Exploring majors and careers in High school is important because it helps one discover what he/she enjoys and is good at. In addition, I would advice myself to search for scholarships and financial aid; Lack of money should keep no one from a better education. Lastly, I would tell myself that one of the best feelings in life is achieving what you set yourself to achieve.
I can't find a bad thing about my school. I have just fun here.
College of the Canyons is a very inviting school, and both the students and faculty are dedicated to learning and achieving their goals.
Classmates of mine at College Of the Canyons tend to be very diverse in there studies and study techniques with some taking 16 units and working full time and others struggling with only two classes.
My school has an excellent nursing program and GREAT professors.
Diverse cultures in mixture with caring staff constitutes for the equivalent of College of the Canyons. My campus is by far the most unique community college because students and staff alike are looking towards one goal, success. Past reputations are left in the parking lot, when you enter a classroom you are an equal; not only are you acknowledge as being a valuable part of the classroom experience, but also a hard worker. Socially the students at College of the Canyons are one of a kind. Ultimately, COC welcomes everyone, from every community with open arms.
I wish I would have known more about transferring, my options, the unit requirements, I wasn't fully aware of them when I started.
The person who needs to explore their options and learn about himself or herself should attend COC. The variety of majors, the diverse student body, the helpful faculty, the inspiring counselors and the vast opportunities the college offers creates an environment where anyone can succeed when they commit to that success. College should be a time of question and individual prospect. College of the Canyons provides a place for this exploration to happen.
College of the Canyons is the fastest growing Community College in the nation. They have excellent music programs to enroll in, to give you experience and training. The teachers enjoy their jobs,and are willing to go above and beyond just answering your questions in class. You also can't beat the location of this college and the price of enrollment.
The only frustrating thing about College of the Canyons is that there are not enough upper level classes to accomodate its students. For example, I once had a linear algebra class that could only have 35 students enrolled but there were at least ten people trying to crash on top of the wait list. However, the college has been responding to this issue and has been creating more classes for students.
College of the Canyons is great at giving their students everything they need to succeed. There are three tutoring areas where tutors for math, English, science, and foreign languages are always available. These areas, along with their library, all have textbooks for students to use so students who can?t afford books but don?t qualify for financial aid can choose to use the campus? resources instead. It?s helped me stay focused and save time and money knowing that I could use their books between classes and have a tutor on hand to explain anything I don?t understand.
Typically my weekend consists of long hours at work because I don't usually allow myself to have a day off. In fact, I am very disappointed on my days off because I know I'm not making money sitting at home. However, I use my time wisely at home during the day by getting done necessary laundry, meal prepping my food in the kitchen, then cleaning up the kitchen, organizing random drawers or closets or pantries in the house, and studying for upcoming tests or working on homework projects. At night once all my work is done, which is usually pretty late, I allow myself to watch an hour or two of Netflix and then get some much needed sleep. The next day I am off to work, hopefully, and when I get home I make myself dinner and then head up to my room to work on my studies and check in with any updates on my school site or any grade changes.
There a lots of programs classes are small and school life there is very serious.
The most popular group is the honor club. For students doing honors and maintain a good grade there are lots of activities and benefits
Most stereotypes at the school are accurate. It is what it is.
