My overall experience at College of the Canyons was amazing! I had such a great experience with the teachers as well with the students. I love the counselors here because they know what they are doing and give you such great advice on what to do. Especially because I play soccer and I am trying to transfer to a four year university to continue to plat soccer, so the counselors help me get the classes I need and units I need in order to graduate and transfer in two years. The environment of the school is great, everyone is so friendly and easy to talk to, no faculty members give attitude at any given point. I absolutely recommend College of the Canyons.

For a community college, it gives you what you ask for. A lot of sub par professors, but some genuinely great ones if you look hard enough. The facilities aren't spotless, but they provide a great variety of amenities and support for your education. Both campuses are in relatively safe areas, with the Valencia location conveniently located near the hub of the town. The college does make an effort to offer the student body numerous resources and programs, but does not always do the best job at advertising these services. Overall, for a community college, it's well worth the money, but that isn't to say it doesn't have places to improve upon.
College of the Canyons is definitely worth attending. Every student that attends that school are people who either continue their education after a long absence from school, save money from universities by taking winter and summer courses, or aim to transfer to a university while saving money. Needless to say, everyone there has a goal. College of the Canyons has provided a bountiful amount of resources to let students succeed in their education. Their academics are excellent with intelligent professors that not only make sure their students understand the concepts, but also inspire them to become a better student and person. I look back at my wonderful memories at College of the Canyons - swaggering with pride this school has prepared me for in my future - without a single regret.
