College of the Sequoias Reviews

The College of the Sequoias is very much your typical junior college, nestled within the fertile San Joaquin Valley. It is home to roughly 10,000 students, yet doesn't feel very crowded for a comparatively small school. By far, the best aspect of COS is its wonderful staff of dedicated and inspiring instructors. Classes that would otherwise be a pain to get through are made much more tolerable thanks to some incredible teachers employed at the school. Almost all the professors I took were available during office hours and were willing to not only answer questions about the class, but also help with other matters such as the transfer process and just generally finding your path through life. Compared to the low cost of attending this school, COS is a fantastic return on investment and an overall great place to gain an education.
Review College of the Sequoias
College of the Sequoias has been an ever changing/evolving place. In between it's geological growth, staff, and students. Some things with a lot of well earned and deserved appraisal, and others that raise a bit of a question in the long run. Over all the students do and will benefit from it all into not only becoming what they set out to be, but also from learning how society functions and how/when/where it could/can/will affect them. So be this all a "work in progress" or simply just an "attempt" at achieving. This school is still educating to the best of it's allowed abilities and in the end yields students who walk away upon graduation with more than just a diploma .
I really like the atmosphere at COS! Everyone is very friendly and there is a range of different age groups. The professors at COS are very helpful and are very experience. The downfall is the safety there. There have been multiple occasions of people getting there cars broken into. I also have seen a lot of homeless on the campus as well. It does seems like I have been more cops on campus.
