Butte College Reviews
Rating 3.89 out of 5 661 reviews
Most of the instructors are causcasian females, they are meangirl, vindictive and do NOT embrace diversity. There is very little diversity in Butte County, a county known for fires, Meth addicts and alcoholism. This school is weird, when open, it shut down by 4pm. and during pandemic, you are totally alone if they do not answer their email or phone. Financial Aid sometimes helps students, and other times blows them off. The nursing program is corrupt, money hungry and awful, they can't teach effectively, revolving door- failure to hire or keep good instructors, low morale and performance ratings, instead they micromanage and force nursing students to score extra high or be kicked out because Butte nursing is only #76 out of 85 California nursing programs 2020. That is pretty pathetic. Overall, the college does not support its students, attended for 1.5 years Butte College is nothing to brag about.
This school takes great care of its teachers and students. The smaller classes really helped me personally, to get through some of the subjects that I found to be a little harder to grasp. Having the access to one-on-one time with a caring instructor is very important when struggling to learn. I have learned so much, both inside and outside of the academic subjects, the admin and instructors practice continuing improvement, and it shows.
I started at this college during the pandemic and the online experience has been amazing. The layout is easy to navigate through and the professors response quickly.
The college communicates well with what is happening. They embrace diversity and have so many educational options.
I have had a good experience with the professors and students that I have had classes with. My classes have been fairly challenging but not overwhelming. It's hard for me to nitpick and find things wrong with the school because I have been taking exclusively online classes, so I leave this review with only good things to say.
The canvas format for online learning is easy to use. Online learning has allowed me to do my work on my own time, which is really nice for me.
I like the range of classes Butte offers and the small campus feel that it has. The professors there are nice and do everything they can to help the students.
Loved it!! I moved to Chico and got the college experience for a FREE. Check out the promise grant! Butte’s motto is “start here, go anywhere!” and with recruiters from schools like Berkeley it’s very accurate. Thank you so much to Butte College :)
Online learning was slightly better than average. My instructors reached out often to make sure I was doing well with everything.
I have taken quite a few online classes, for the most part they have been good, I had one professor who was not as willing to compromise, if your computer would save things as a png. that wasn't ok with him and it needed to be converted into pdf. even though it would submit and look the exact same. Other than that one professor, my other have been great and very willing to work with you.
While some of my professors were amazing at adapting to the online teaching scene, some were not. Overall I had a very successful semester at Butte that has given me hope to further my education.
Very Caring and willing to help the student anyway they can. I have attended big universities and felt lost having to wait so long to speak to a counselor but at Butte I only had to wait a few hours. Even with the pandemic the staff has been doing the most for the students.
I really don't know I've never taken an online course expect for now with covid-19. Online learning isn't for me. I have a challenging time with taking online classes. I am doing my best.
Online transition was a little slow but the teachers did the best they could. A few of my teachers are on the older side so this is expected.
I’ve enjoyed my first year at butte. It has way exceeded my expectations. I’ve now become super involved and I am part of the student board.
Fairly welcoming place with a diverse population. Lots of international students who are honestly, in a lot of cases, more open than the others.
It’s great. The professors are helpful and are willing too work with you for extra help. There are plenty of opportunities for extra help. Whether it be from tutoring or needing a meal. The campus is kept really clean. The main and Chico campuses always have people available that are ready to help if you need something. The only main downside is that the main campus is in the middle of nowhere basically.
