I enjoy Sacramento City College. Sac City is a great place to go if you're under financial constraint, but still want a good education. Just like any school, some professors are great and others aren't. The websites and navigation are very up to date, unlike some other community colleges I attend.

Sacramento City College is a great community college for students coming from highschool who may not think they are fully prepared to go off to the big universities. Sac City has a way of transitioning students comfortably and efficiently in such a way that students dont feel discouraged when starting this big step in their careers.

Kylie - 01/06/2020

Sacramento City College is a great community college and there are many opportunities given towards you. I've taken classes during the summer and fall and the professors are amazing. The environment you're in and the people you're surrounded by, there's no reason to feel as people are judging you when everyone's focused on their own thing. If you're wondering about what's around the campus, there are many places you could visit during breaks or after your classes. Fast food, boba shops, pet shops, etc. It's honestly a good campus and should be considered for.

  17. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    Professors who present lectures unclearly frustrate me the most. I have had several professors who do not stay on topic and also those who only discuss theory during their lectures when practical examples are desperately needed. When learning of the physical sciences, we do need to understand the theory, but as new students who have had very little exposure to the topic, we need practical examples to help us understand that theory and how to apply it to the world around us.
