Butte College Reviews
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!
I love Butte College. The instructors are knowledgable, compassionate, and available. It is evident in their attention to the courses, material, and students that they want us to succeed. I love their variety of courses, programs, and clubs. Their special events are informative and fun. I love my college!
Butte College takes pride in being sustainable! 44% of the colleges electricity s powered by 5 large solar panels. The college has managed to save energy and still plans on doing so with energy conservation projects. The campus is extremely beautiful and the view when you walk out of class is breathtaking. Professors from Chico State enjoy working there as well! I have had the chance to meet and take classes administered by these professors. They are also giving freshman free tuition this Fall semester, which makes it really affordable as well.
