College of the Sequoias Reviews

I had a good experience at College of the Sequoias. I was a student there for 3 years and I played softball there for one year. I loved my chemistry and physiology teachers there. Those two classes were extremely difficult but they did everything in their ability to teach me the way that fit me best. They would have one on one talks with me, give me extra examples and not get frustrated if I had a question. I would like to see improvements in the availability in the nursing program. I'm forced to relocate to go to a nursing program in another area because COS's is too packed with only 30 applications being excepted. I would have liked to do my nursing program at COS.
My school is a really good in between for high school and college. The campus gives off a very tranquil feeling, fellow students are friendly towards each other, and you can tell the teachers really enjoy their respective subjects and want to see you succeed. I've actually had a few classes that I'm excited to go to each semester. Not to mention, most classes have a multitude of versions, so you can try one teacher over another, or an online or hybrid class over your standard class sessions. Overall, it's a nice launchpad for the future.
The tests are basically the same, we learn the same things, and need the same materials, though commubication is dramatically different from in-class courses of course. It also wouldn't hurt to make things a bit more interactive or verbal. I do like though that things are very individualistic and are available for those with busy lives or who prefer learning at odd hours of the day. Our school's online courses are also very easy to get around and to submit work and such. Anyone who can use a computer would know how to take an online course at this college. Online classes though should be able to take in more students. Professors don't need to do much for the classes and often have quizzes and tests automatically graded online.
