Citrus college is amazing! I love the campus. The staff is very helpful and caring. The counselors and professors truly care about each individuals education. They offer so many programs to help, and guide students along there educational journey. Citrus has free tutoring for almost every subject which is very rewarding if you attend them. I would definitely recommend this community college!

I found this campus quite convenient. It's small enough that classes are pretty easy to find. The classes themselves are fun in the sense that the instructors are laid back, have great senses of humor and make the classes interesting. Parking is convenient if you arrive early enough, and for those who ride the bus, it drops off on campus! I also really liked that they have a cosmetology course and anyone can come in as a visitor and have their hair done for a great low price and parking is cheap. The campus itself is very nice, very green.
I guess they could improve on the bookstore size and prices. College is expensive enough and I think this goes for most colleges... food courts and bookstores are a bit overpriced. Also, although I had my own place and it's not a university, I can't rate dorm or housing, they had none.
Overall, I would return, I do miss it, but I've switched majors have since moved and work full time so I had to choose a college near my work place.
Nice, small college with good classes, good teachers, and within walking distance to plenty of restaurants. The classes can fill up quickly and, though there is currently little to do on campus besides school, they're trying to make it better. Overall, I enjoyed my time at Citrus!
