My overall experience at College of the Siskiyous was a good one. Many of the teachers and office staff are for the most part, friendly and helpful. Some of my favorite classes that I took there was public speaking, photography, humanities, history, business, nutrition, and photoshop. Some of the teachers are absolutely fantastic and passionate about what they teach. Others were difficult to learn from and not very good at communicating with the students. It was the teachers, oftentimes that made the classes either really enjoyable or really painful. One of my problems with the school though is that they offer very limited classes or none at all that have to do with agriculture, farming, or cooking. You would think that because I live in an area with a lot of farming that is something that would be there. But, sadly, it's not.

One of the best things about the school in my opinion though, is the wide array of online classes that they offer. It made getting my associates degree much easier! If I could choose to do COS again, I would. I just would not choose some of the same teachers that I did at first.

I loved doing online classes! For the most part they were easy to understand and access, they had good professor and student interaction and I learned a lot from them. I enjoyed the flexibility they offered and enjoyed saving gas and time by not having to drive to the college for them. They differed from the traditional classroom experience in that you do a lot more reading and independent study rather than listening to a teacher lecture.
The convenience of my experience at this school has had both easy and hard aspects to it. The online courses were highly convenient. I live several miles away from the main campus though, so it would take me an hour to drive there, which was hard. Transferring my credits to others schools has not been hard, which I'm really glad for!
