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.
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.
College of the Sequoias is an average school. Most definitely a step above other community colleges in Tulare county, we have a staff that I really do feel is committed to helping students succeed. I have enjoyed my experience at the school and am excited to transfer as I feel prepared.
In my personal opinion, I believe that the College of the Sequoias is a decent community college for those looking to complete their general education courses and transfer to a university. The faculty members are nice, and the counselors give you a warm welcome, yet there are only a handful of teachers who really captivate you in their class sessions. The food offered at COS isn't tasty, and there really isn't anything to do during your downtime between classes. In my overall opinion, I believe that the College of the Sequoias is a decent college.

Soon your family will suffer from furlough days and mighty pay cuts that will make hardworking students like yourself suffer and in turn, make a four year college seem like a nigh-impossible task.

You will be blessed if you stay true to your family, friends, and loved ones if you follow all I have said. Take care friend and remember that I am you from the future.
The Best thing about my school is probably the Drama program, because the teachers speak to you in ways easy to understand and professionally. So the job gets done.
A Lazy person shouldn't attend Cos.
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!
One that is keen on an education and loves to learn. COS is a great opportunity for those who do not get a economic break. COS offers the same amount of education as any other college and is cheaper on the individual. One can concentrate more on the learning process and how to make it in life as opposed to the financial aspect of college hardships.
The most frustrating thing about my school is parking. It is far to difficult to find parking spot in the parking lot of my school. I suppose a more serious issue would be that it can be an extremely difficult and lengthy process too meet with a couselor, which is sometimes discouraging. Besides that, the school is wonderful.
COS is a great school for Science, Engineering, and Mathematics majors; there are endless volunteer opportunities to teach the community about science and I believe that the science and math departments have the best faculty, staff, and peer support systems!
My school is best know in our community for our Music Arts programs.
I think that the amount of volunteer efforts that are executed each semester is by far the most unique thing about college of the sequoias; there seems to be a new way to volunteer each week.
My classmates are attending class because they want to be there and learn.
What I wish I had known before I came to college was that if I would have taken human anatomy my first semester, then I would have been done earlier with my classes for the nursing program.
I tell them how amazing & supportive the faculty has been with all of the nursing students. They don't want us to fail and they really are a complete resource for us to use. We have their home numbers and email addresses so we can contact them at anytime of the day or night should we need something. The support system that they have made for us is one of the most important factors in getting through this type of program successfully.
