I enjoyed my experience at Chaffey College. I think attending a 2-year college is a great step for people who aren't decided on a major and are scared of the college experience. Attending Chaffey College has also saved me a lot debt that I could have obtained from attending a four year university at the start of my college career. Chaffey truly helped me in my transition in attending a university and I am grateful for it. I believe that Chaffey could make some adjustments in allowing more access to online courses. Classes get full extremely quickly and I had a hard time with being waitlisted for courses I needed to graduate. If I had options of taking online versions for a good portion of the classes I needed, I would have graduated just a little bit earlier. Overall, my experience was great and I recommend a 2-year college for everyone!

I absolutely love attending Chaffey College.
The students are diverse, welcoming and friendly. The staff is willing to help students succeed in every class and there are many resources that will help students in a variety of ways, from helping students understand their transfer requirements to career choice guidance to providing food to students who can't afford lunch. The counselors are hard to reach and are often not very helpful, but the faculty and Transfer center are both great resources for career and transfer planning.
A wide variety of classes are offered and the small class sizes allow for students to collaborate with one another and with their instructors successfully and with ease. Students are able to experience numerous topics which will help them find their interests and their future careers.
The campuses are clean and modern. Almost every seating area, inside or outside, is equipped with a charging station so students can study with ease wherever they are!
Chaffey College has been a wonderful resource for me, filled with helpful faculty, interesting classes, and opportunities to succeed no matter what your background. I wish it had been my first college of choice from the get-go!

That being said, I do believe they could improve on helping students figure out plans of action to graduate, and more aware of the services available to them on campus. I only found out myself by taking a guidance class -- so I believe that something like that should be mandatory, particularly for students just out of high school.

Overall, however, I highly recommend Chaffey. Go Panthers!
