Everyone is doing their own thing. It’s not competitive and students are on their own path to success. The counselors are great and definitely guide you in terms of what classes you need to take if you decide to transfer to a university and etc. The food is good but can occasionally be overpriced. Tutors in the TLC and MESA Lab are always willing to help in any struggles you may have regarding your college classes. Classes are also affordable and doable. If saving money is an absolute necessity, COC will deliver!

For the most part, professors are great! Most directions are clear and concise. Campus is large and fairly clean, but can get very crowded. Parking, however, is a disaster! Trying to get a day pass is very difficult -- you can't buy them online or at the school business office. Instead, you have to find meters located in lots at opposite ends of the campus. When I came to sign up, it took me an hour and a half to find a working meter and a parking space.
My favorite about College of the Canyons, are the resources they provide me and the others, which is EOPS. EOPS helps students pay for their textbooks, graduation cap and gown, gives out grants money if you fulfill their requirements, and help you create you education plan so you lose your track. Oh! Also, they work with CARE, Cal Works, and Foster Care. I absolutely love it! It is the greatest thing I ever came across to it.
