Shiloh - 06/27/2020

College of the Redwoods is a quiet, peaceful college campus. The class sizes aren't too big and all my teachers have been really qualified and accessible. I would definitely recommend this school.

Lila - 03/28/2020

I attend classes at the College of the Redwoods in Del Norte and not in Eureka, so my rating were based on Del Norte. My overall opinion of CR is that I really like the campus, courses, professors, and the community overall. The staff are very welcoming and understanding as well as friendly. I'm not familiar with on campus housing, especially since the campus isn't big; there aren't any dorms. I live with my parents, so I gave the off campus housing a higher rating than the on campus housing.

Christine - 01/20/2019

I love everything about CR. Wether you are a multiple year returning student or a first time, they are there to hell you with everything you need! There are multiple different programs to help students succeed in whatever their goals are. As well as disability student support services to help in anyway need be.
