Completing my pre-requisites for Pharmacy school at Canada was a great experience. The teachers I've had, although very few to choose from because of the specific classes I need, were all very helpful and made me feel well prepared to start higher education. I also love how Canada offers STEM compared to their sister schools CSM and Skyline. Of course since it's a community college you won't get the "full college experience", but I still met people who I am still friends with now after transferring. It's a smart and cheaper way of attending college!

I'm attending CC part-time as a high-schooler, and I've had a great experience so far. Most of my professors have been fabulous; you can tell that most really love teaching their subjects. They also put a lot of effort into making sure everyone is succeeding in their classes. The workload (as a part-timer) is pretty straightforward and light.

The campus is nicely situated with an excellent view of the valley, although the weather can be quite windy. The buildings are pretty easy to find your way around and are well situated. However, the parking lots are really annoying; if you don't buy the semester-long parking permit you have to buy daily tickets--and the machines are often broken (I've gotten a citation in a lot with a broken machine).

Overall, CC is a great community college! I honestly like it better than the nearby Foothill College, as it's easier to find your way around campus and my professors so far have been just as good as the ones I've had at Foothill.
I love education in the college academic level especially at Cañada College. The faculty are serious, educated, resourceful, and willing to help the students in any shape or form. By being positively determined to achieve at college and often communicating with staff, faculty and classmates, has also strengthen my extroverted personality with no doubt more knowledgeable and building long lasting relationships to make a difference in my community. I have grown resilient and strengthen my grit to go forward in my education. I find it very important to often communicate with my counselors of any thoughts or questions I may have concerning my educational plan.
