Butte College has got to be the best community college in the state. The main campus is beautiful, the Chico campus is easy to go to, and the bus system simplifies everything. The employees at Butte are alays quick to respond to problems and easy to contact. All of the teachers are great in their own way, but some of them are amazing! They can be so passionate and helpful and interesting people to talk to. The students at Butte are also easy going and friendly for the most part, but it's hard not to be in the beautiful hills of the main campus. There is so much to do through the college as well. I'm very thankful for Butte College and it's bitter sweet to be transferring to Chico State next Fall, but Butte will always be in my heart as lots of good memories.

Throughout my first year, I enjoyed the "green" campus philosophy, with the many environmentally-centric clubs and organizations present. The location is charming, nestled in the hills and buttes in a semi-rural area between two towns, making it highly accessible. The campus itself is large but not too strewn out, with ample grounds for the popular agricultural and heavy equipment courses. Also included is a relatively new football field and track.
All around campus are small niches perfect for studying between classes or just enjoying a grassy knoll with your new friends. It is not uncommon to see an occasional hammock strung up between trees near the sculpture garden or a pair of professors discussing lessons in the shade near the Horticulture Buildings, or the Koi ponds.
Overall, the campus itself is comforting and inviting; welcoming students from all walks of life.
My experience at Butte has been nothing but amazing! I've enjoyed every class I have taken, the staff and faculty were very knowledgeable, and the tuition is very reasonably priced. I didn't have any worry about getting any student loans to cover my expenses. Because of this I was able to focus on what is the most important; my education.
