College of the Canyons is a perfect school for someone who is not quite sure in what they want to major in. One takes their regular general education courses and by the second year, you meet so many passionate students, teachers, and tutors on campus who help undecided majors and encourage them to pursue the major they want. There are many resources at this campus, such as workshops based on your major, free tutors at the learning center, and a great campus environment. I learned a lot at this campus, thanks to the excellent professors and counselors who truly want to help and help you choose the right path!

The campus resources are amazing and truly helpful, including the Student Health and Wellness Center, The Learning Canter (with free tutors), the Career and Counseling centers and more! The staff is all about helping you progress through your educational career. RateMyProfessor is a great, accurate sight to use for the professors. My GPA has sky rocketed due to all the help I am able to find on campus! Thanks to this college and all it's resources, I've truly fallen in love with the school experience.
College of The Canyons has been a really good school! Most professors make the material easy to understand, the workload doable, and actually want you to succeed. The cafeteria has Subway which is okay, as well as other food. The food is pretty good but a little pricey. The transfer counselor is very helpful but the other counselors all tell you different things and confuse you, leaving you to figure it out yourself.
