I am a high school and college student. I go to College in the morning then in the afternoon I go to High School. San Jacinto is not a bad school. Its a very professional and its one of the number one colleges in Pasadena. San Jacinto is know for academic excellence. The professors know their subjects well and teaches there students based on real life experience.

Camille - 11/05/2020

San Jacinto Community College is overall good. I am a dual credit student, and the classes are good. The professor there are overall helpful, and emailing them about question helps too. They have Starbucks and a place you can get any materials you need like scantrons.

Nancy

I recently graduated from the Medical Radiography Program and am now pursuing a certificated in Computed Tomography. The school itself offers variety of opportunities and classes to expose to each and every student. It library and tutors assist students with their studies or to just provide a quiet place for them to escape to. Overall I'm loving my community college, also because it is much cheaper in comparison to universities.

Stanley

It is a great school, on a beautiful campus and many remote locations and classes offered. Plenty of activities, sports, and tutor helps, with a great library on Central campus especially. Nice people and good attitudes! People come from all over to play on the sports teams and there is a good solid education happening with plenty of intellectual potential and many life-long benefits. :) It really is a nice place,

San Jacinto Community College FAQS

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

    When I was a senior, I made every mistake. I went to a wonderful school, and had opportunities. That is 18 long, arduous years ago. Now 35 years old, I have since learned a wealth of life lessons. The obvious lesson is that out in the big bad world, life beats you up and you need a degree to open doors to happiness. My advice to myself would be to have focused on what I was doing at that time, and not have waited until later in life when it is more difficult. If too much time passes, you can find yourself in a situation such as me, where you are mother of a toddler working a commission job. I would have told myself how precarious that is, and how I would always wonder where the next commission would come from. Also that the smarter route would be to do it at 18, living at home sans bills. Additionally that it in the end, it will still be OK though because at 35, I am an even better student, with a 3.9 GPA. Honestly, at 18, would I have even listened to my older self? Who knows!

  3. What's unique about your campus?

    I love how friendly and committed the teachers are. For example, when I was taking a full load of fairly hard courses, I couldn't afford to get behind at all. At one point I was struggling, but I e-mailed a few of my teachers and they helped me, in person, trying to change the method of teaching until I finally understood it.

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

    The absolute worst thing about my school is the crim in the parking lot. I know everywhere has crime now a days, but the cars are still being broken into. I know the police are doing their jobs, but I just wish there were just a few more survalencing the parking lots at all angles. Even having unmarked and out of uniform police offers would work. You never know if you are going to run into one.
