    Campuses are amazing, especially the main campus!
    It is a wildlife refuge and expansive! So many unique and beautiful views to explore between classes. Has a fantastic sports program and the teachers are great especially with the smaller classroom sizes.

    I’ve had an incredibly positive experience at Butte College! The professors are excellent, especially considering the fact that this is a community college. There is a huge breadth of resources including a Maker Space and the staff and faculty are dedicated to creating a diverse, supportive environment. I’ve also had the opportunity to work as a tutor on campus, which has been deeply enlightening for me!
