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.

Butte College has been a wonderful experience this far. The teachers are always ready to help with open arms and go above and beyond to make sure we are understanding the material. The school is in immaculate condition! Everyone that works at the school seems to be in great spirit and has actually helped me get through some challenging times this past semester. I am very grateful to be attending this school! As a newly single mother, times can be hard but I am happy to say I was just hired part time in the Safe and Wellness center. I couldn't be more excited! This school has offered me ways to grow and a steady income. I am thankful beyond belief for this next semester and for the years to come!
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.
