What's your overall opinion of College of the Siskiyous?

7 Students rated College of the Siskiyous


This college is behind times with tech and social acceptance. The school is a sport school filled with jocks. The sports are good and create many transfer students. Not many students graduate this past year only 200 graduated out of a school population of 2500. Also the city population is only 3000 so it is pretty small compared to other college cities.


College of the Siskiyous is like any other college. The experience you have is what you make of it. There are many things to do outdoors and many beautiful areas to hike. There is also an indescribable view of Mt. Shasta. What I appreciate most about the College of the Siskiyous is that it pushed me to get creative with my free time and to find others to spend time with. It is also very easy to fall into the wrong crowd, so it pushes an individual to find good friends, willing to care enough to hold you accountable. Being a small college, it is almost guaranteed that you'll find friends who make you feel at home, like family. For all of these reasons, I will always be able to look back to my experience and appreciate the College of the Siskiyous.


Small college, which offers pros like excellent student to teacher ratio, but also means less opportunity for community and career growth. Dorms are pretty outdated, as well as cafeteria. But the science building and natural surrounding are excellent for those looking towards an environmental/science major. Overall, a quaint school in a stunning setting with friendly people but confinements of a small town.


The people at the college are very friendly and helpful. I have run into unsure situations with my own class schedule, but I always get help and clarification. I love this school and I'm proud to wear their gear to support them.

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

    If I could go back in time I would make the time to study harder and get better grades in High School. I do not think I learned very good study habits, I think good study habits would really have helped me this first year in College. I would also have saved my money. College is expensive, books, tuitition, dorms, cafeteria it all costs money. I appreciate the time I am spending in College making a change for my future. I also wish that I had the opportunity to visit more California campuses that way when I graduate I would have a better idea of which school to transfer to.

  7. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    I consider the boring factor to be one of the worst things. Classes are great, teachers and councilers are amazing, however out of the classroom and after homework there are very few things you can invest your time into. There are sports, drama, and art. If you are not involved in any of that there are very few options to what you can spend the rest of your time doing. There are hardly any jobs or internships. There are no concerts nor student run organizations to join. Basically everyone is just waiting to get out, which is sad.

  10. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    Our school campus is beautiful. We can see Mount Shasta from the campus and there are many plants and flowers around (when it's not freezing). Our school also offers a lot of resources such as support hours and writing and math labs. If I had to choose just one thing to brag about though, it would be that our school isn't very crowded. After everyone drops in the first week, most classes don't have more than 20 people.
