Butte College Reviews

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.
Review Butte College
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.
Butte College is an incredible institution with some of the best qualities a Community College can have. The main campus is a beautiful 10 minute drive from Chico, Oroville, and Paradise. It is a gorgeous, spread out campus with a very friendly staff. The Chico and Yuba locations are just as nice and are perfect for students that live far out in the county. There is something for everyone at Butte. There are many programs that one can take; from sculpting to welding to fire science. If you are looking to transfer, there are transfer counselors that strictly work with transfer students. If you are looking for an Associates Degree there are over a hundred majors to pick from. Overall the college is a great place to be and the only negative thing I have ever heard said about it is that there are no fast food places nearby.
