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.
This is my second semester attending this campus. I enjoy the instructors and resources that are provided to the students. Small campus yet it has well prepare instructors and an environment that allows students to learn. I feel very supported by instructors and tutors that are always available wherever I seek for help. Very diverse campus and friendly staff and students. I have made and meet a lot of students whom , i have become better close. We share different cultures and customs but we respect each other and we are able to learn from each other. I commute for almost four hours each day in order to came to this campus. I have other Colleges near my house but I rather commute and be happy and learn in a safe environment that works for me. Canada College is a very unique College that keeps me motivated and one day I will transfer with less stress. Once, i complete my AS i will be ready to attend any University.
