College of the Redwoods Reviews

My experience at College of the Redwoods (the Del Norte branch) has been great! As a nervous first-generation college student, I was overwhelmed by the options available to start career paths. However, with the help of very patient counselors, I found several possible paths to take. The professors are caring and more than happy to lend extra help. What I found to be surprising was their ability to work with the learning content to make it more interesting through a combination of teaching style and personality. What makes this closeness between professor and student is small to moderate class sizes (20-25 students per teacher). The campus while being only a branch of the main campus has had a recent addition to its facilities a new science lab that has equipment geared toward offering more classes for the popular LVN program. Lastly, there are no dorms on the Del Norte College of the Redwoods Campus so renting or other options are advised.

For a small, out-of-the-way college in a small town, I absolutely loved this campus! The scenery was beautiful (when it wasn't pouring rain or foggy in the morning), the teachers were all incredible at their job and making learning as interesting and fun as possible, and everything from applying, financial aid, counseling, and just general FAQ was made super easy by the staff there. Never had a single bad class or teacher experience, in fact the opposite was true. I learned to re-love a few subjects from the faculty here that I had had a falling out of with the teaching in high school, so I'm very grateful for that! (Thank you Mike Butler for helping me to enjoy math again, and thank you April Garwin for making Forensic Anthropology the best class ever!)
I'm no longer at this college since moving, but I would definitely go back in a heartbeat. Loved it.
This awesome school is in the middle of a forest, surrounded by tons of tall Redwoods and Sequoia trees, beautiful flowers, deer, chipmunks...the list goes on. There is something about the smell of the forest that can instantly make a bad day get better, or when walking by the pond you catch a quick glimpse of the biggest dragonfly you've ever seen! I've had some absolutely wonderful teachers here, and a few not so great ones too, but the good definitely outweighs the bad here. The school is small compared to most others, but I like it that way and usually don't have any problems finding or getting what I need here, and all the staff are very nice and helpful. I appreciate the opportunity to apply for scholarships offered through the school and find it very affordable with financial aid.
