The quality of some of the professors at the school here are world class. Two that come to mind right off the bat are Ted Hamilton and Paula Clark. If you have a chance to take one of their courses, DO IT! Do not listen to any of the counselors who stray you away from taking their class because it's challenging. They care about their students as if they were their own kin. they will inspire and drive you make choice right for you outside of class and in.
Columbia College is a great small college set in Sonora. Instructors are great for the most part, and the classes are small. The campus is beautiful with lots of wildlife and a nice pond to sit and study by. Campus highlights are the coffee shop and bakery that the culinary students sell their pastries in.
