I love the College of the Sequoias, but I wish there were more academic clubs present at their satellite location, for example, MESA at the Hanford location. I must say they have one of the best English 1 and 2 teachers there. It was clear that he cared for students' success and wanted to see them grow in their writing.

Eric Ramos - 11/30/2022

COS is a great place to figure out your path in life. As a STEM major, I can safely say that COS has some of the best STEM instructors for a community college. Class sizes are small, which gives students many opportunities to get help outside of class and get to know the professors. The physics and chemistry professors are especially outstanding.

Socorro - 06/28/2020

I am happy for the most part everyone is helpful. A couple that aren’t as helpful or don’t know much. For the most part all my classes have been online. Wonderful and knowledgeable teachers that you can email any time for help. I recommend their programs to everyone.

    The only thing that I can think of regarding something that needs to change is the parking areas. There is not enough of them at all. Especially in the beginning of the semster, it is like a needle in a hay stack to find parking. I wish there was a better structure or more land and to put parking on. Sometimes you have to park almost a mile away in neighborhoods and walk or run with books or backpacks on so you won't be late for class. That's not a fun way to start your day!
