What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautiful and most teachers are excellent. Some classes are unnecessarily hard but over all teachers care to help and teach their students. The environment is welcoming and students of all ages are as a whole friendly. I wish sports were a little more important but it’s also a community college so that is what is expected. Over all a great school, especially for a community college and it often feels like a university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a phenomenal school. Everyone working there always has the best interests of the students in mind, and the teachers are some of the best and most intelligent people I have ever met. They bring out the absolute best in their students, and my classmates in turn are wonderful to converse with on nearly any topic.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SBCC is great for currently enrolled high school students, who are homeschoolers because the college is homeschool friendly. The campus is pretty cool, with the awesome views of the ocean. The campus environment is superb with helpful, friendly staff, as well as a great campus community. The professors are great, and there are a wide range of majors and classes to choose from.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Santa Barbara City College is a great transitional school if your goals are to transfer into a 4 year institution. There's plenty of interesting classes to take, amazing professors, and sociable students that enjoy being here. It doesn't hurt that the campus is right by the beach too!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Santa Barbara City College is a wonderful school, with a surprising amount of great opportunities, quality professors, and interesting classes. The faculty is dedicated, caring, and committed to getting students where they want to be. The school is very well prepared for students to stay and to transfer out, and is very supportive. While not every major is fleshed out to my personal liking (I am a theatre major, and from experience, I must say that this is a weak point for SBCC), the school is very open and receptive to students' experiences and contributions for ways to improve. There are also countless programs to cater to diversity—sexual orientation, gender identity, learning disabilities (their program, DSPS, is extremely well thought out and organized and has helped me enormously by having a more focused environment for exams since I have ADHD), and more. Their scholarship opportunities, such as the Promise Program, are also very well funded and community-oriented. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the stunning, 180 degree ocean view campus, sprawling green grass hills, a ten minute drive away from tourist destination hot spot, State Street. The students, simply put, are happy. Priceless.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Santa Barbara City College is filled with professors who love what they teach. That is what makes this school great in my opinion. Were it not for my English professor, I would not have discovered my passion for literature. Were it not for my Sociology teacher, I would never have discovered new thought patterns to align myself with. SBCC is a wonderful school with open-minded and caring students, teachers, and alumni. I am grateful to be going to Santa Barbara City College. Moreover, I would recommend this school to anyone who enjoys a wonderful view of the beach. The beach is right in front of SBCC, I occasionally like to go for a cool refreshing swim on a warm sunny day.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly really love Santa Barbara City College. They have great teachers, and academics. I can tell that teachers really want their students to thrive because they offer so many office hours and plus show us where we could get additional support. For example, im taking a math class and my teacher has a designated tutor just for our class. She usually hangs out in class or the math lab. The only problem i have is the town. Its way to beachy for me, but if your into that i high recommend it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is in a great location and has some really good teachers in every department if you look around. They have a large selection of class options. The PE classes were well organized and good exercise and a great place to meet different people. Go to the library on hot days :)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a beautiful campus especially if you love the beach, you will have your breath taken every time you come to school. Weather is nice but also bipolar a little bit, but you always feel a nice breeze. The people here are super nice and friendly, you get used to the environment/ school pretty quickly and the campus is easy to get used to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it's a very affordable option and has a great transfer program for UC's and CSU's. The financial aid is very great and accessible to many. The professors are all experienced and professional. I see SBCC as a college that is open to everybody with a diverse student body and staff.
