I’ve received my paramedic license and Registered Nursing license from COS. This is a great school. The ski area is 20 minutes away, rock climbing, mountain biking. Etc!

I have enjoyed my time spent at College of the Siskiyous. It being a small, community-based college allows students and professors to work closer together and communicate better. Student life is also an upside at this school because of the many resources available, including a food pantry, warm jackets for donation in the winter, accommodating dorms, a weight room, warm meals, and even book vouchers for students with financial need.
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.
