This campus provides a lot of oppertunity, but it is up to you to pursue it. Because it is a community college it ranges when it comes to people and their motivation. Motivated people are easy to find if you get involved with clubs on campus. Professors are absolutely outstanding! Just be sure to use ratemyprofessor.com to make sure you get the best one possible.
SCC is a great school, but needs to help some of their professors become more engaged with their students. There seems to be a disconnect there. Also, SCC needs to work on helping their transfer students be more readily prepared for the transition process.
Great classroom size and great facility plus most teachers are pretty awesome. They have great resources for tutoring as well which makes it easy to catch up if you miss a class or two. I think overall the school has a good vibe to it. I like that the kids who are in most of my honor classes are cool a bit nerdy but cool.
It was a pretty nice college if you like a calm environment. The view is incredible from the hill top and the night time are wonderful. There isn't a lot of food options, but near by, if you go down chapman, there are some food recommendation. I would recommend it to everyone really.
All the professors take time during their office hours, and many even have three or more office hours a week. All of them tend to respond quickly to email (I've had 16 professors so far). The general student body isn't very active outside if class--it's a community college--but there is a core group of students who participate in many of the schools' activities. The ASG (Associated Student Government) makes sure to have many events per semester, which can be as awesome as just giving out free Italian ice, because why not. Bonus: classes that aren't required across majors (eg. English 101 and 103) rarely have 30 or more students. It's even common to get classes with 15 students or so.
Santiago Canyon College is a hub of education in which students come, learn if they so choose, and then leave. The average student here has the opportunity to be active but can also easily skate by with minimal effort. The nature of the campus as a "commuter school" means that few relationships are formed from student to student or student to professor. The opportunities are plenty but the bar is low. As soon as class is dismissed any semblance of academia is thrown to the wind and students leave as soon as possible. I enjoy the school but would appreciate it more if there was more of a connection between students outside of class. Perhaps this is too much to ask of a community college or any school with no on campus housing which inherently allows for a more interconnected community, but the notion of ongoing intellectual conversation and scholastic presence would be the cherry on top for this college.
Santiago canyon college may be a smaller school, but myself and many others have loved our time there. They have plenty of different things for one to do, whether it be sports, or academics there's something for everyone. Then when looking at the academic side such as professors, they are nothing other then amazing going above and beyond for their students.
I love Santiago Canyon College. One of the biggest things that I love is that you never have to worry about parking. The counselors are amazing and are available for walk-in appointments. They offer tons of classes and will often open extra classes if all the sections are completely full. this campus is in a nice area and I always feel safe walking around. My professors have (mostly) been very kind and helpful. Great selection of online classes. I would highly recommend this campus. Also, SCC offers a scholarship for high schools seniors, so many get a year of free tuition.
This school has many fantastic professors, but also some who don't quite live up to the position. Most you will encounter love their job and teach the subject well. Sometimes, both professors and students can be too political, which detracts from the learning environment. This college's online and hybrid programs are some of the best around. Most professors are available outside of class and are receptive to email.
I enjoyed my time there, very welcoming community, and very well educated professors! Small campus, so it was not hard to get from one class to another in a short period of time. The classes often filled up pretty quickly, so be sure you're ready when your time to register is on!
I believe Santiago canyon college is a great college for first year students looking to advance their lives and future careers. There are numerous staff and faculty members looking to help students who may have questions regarding anything on campus, their majors, or if they’re looking to switch their majors to something else.
I love the campus feel. The location is extremely safe, the campus is small where you can walk to and from one side of the school to the other in 5 minutes, and the class size is relatively small allowing for more one on one time with professors. Different food is offered throughout the week and food trucks are on campus every day. Classrooms are new for the most part and well equipped. The library is beautiful. Plenty of tutoring options for all subjects and are all free of charge. Free two years of tuition. There is so many resources where you could get help. Overall amazing campus. I would choose it all over again.
