Central Arizona College Reviews
Overall, it is a very good college. They help you with the goals that you want to achieve in the future, and the faculty is very nice. Like every college, there are some problems. They don't have that many clubs or programs for students that don't go to the main campus. I only go to the Maricopa campus, but from what I hear from the main campus, Signal Peak, it is very nice. The education is very interactive and the professors really care about their subjects. They also offer a really good Early Scholarship Program that is great for homeschooled students.
I find Central Arizona College to be good. The teachers are helpful. In fact, I have yet to run into an unhelpful teacher. Additionally, I find the costs very reasonable. Thus, I have great return on my investment. However, their range of subjects are lacking. There are hardly any art classes and it is very restricted. In other words, the classes are more designed for students wanting a technical degree. Currently, the campus is under construction. They are putting in a new cafeteria and science building. This is for the best, because both of the other current building are in not so great condition. Furthermore, this college is in Arizona, so it is pretty sunny. Nevertheless, they have nearly no shading and no grassy area to sit on. Besides these few issues this is a great college. Mainly, because the teachers are nice, the classes are decent, and the tuition is reasonable.
CAC has been a great start to my collegiate journey. My classes have been uplifting in class and online, though redundant at times. The Professors have been very helpful and considerate of the students needs, but administratively the college seems average to below average. The registration office has always given me some issues with classes, transcripts, etc, but for the most part I would recommend the college.
