Citrus College Reviews

I have been going to Citrus College for two years now, and I have had a really great experience there. The school has some really amazing professors that have helped me gain knowledge for my future career, confidence in my writing and academic capabilities, as well as a complete understanding for what I want to do with my life. One professor in particular is Shelley Hahn, who is one of the main professors in the child development department. Shelley has helped me, and so many others, become proficient in facilitating optimal development in young children. That being said, I know she has personally impacted so many students life for the better. She has made me so much for confident in my skills as a future educator and I could not have been more thankful to Citrus for having her as a staff member. Citrus College is full of amazing opportunities, as well as resources for students and community members.

I have been studying at Citrus College for about 2 years now. Overall it is a very pleasant learning environment. To be very hypercritical, I would rate it 4 stars. The lack of star is due to my opinion that their facilities can still be improved; a few renovations would be nice but not really necessary. It is just my own taste in architectural design taking over.

I migrated to California from the Philippines in 2010. Ever since, I have gone back and forth between those two countries. It was only 2 years ago that I decided to permanently stay in California to continue my college education. What stood out to me the most was the quality of professors. Coming from a third world country, I expected a lot from the American school system. Being immersed in the school for nearly 2 years, I have encountered various professors coming from different fields. It is very evident that they care for their students' future. I applaud Citrus College for great deliberation in hiring professors.
I am in my 40's and headed back to college after raising my kids. I like the students and have had several great professors. I am happy with my experience, overall. However, a couple of the professors (tenured) need to be fired. I am a 4.0 student and I had some terrible experiences this semester with a rude, prejudiced (against white people) and disorganized professor. She is retiring this semester, but something should have been done about her long ago. I think the overall environs of the college are good - opportunities for honors, financial aid, counseling services, etc. are good. Excellent online program.
