Copper Mountain College cares! The staff, faculty and fellow students care! They care about the college, the students and the staff/faculty!

There is a foundation that also cares, they work hard to make sure that there is money available for scholarships and work with the students, clubs, and organizations to continue to fund these and help our financially!

Everyone is here for one reason, education. Whether it be yours or theirs, there is a very caring environment on this campus and it makes going to class, studying and succeeding easier, not easy, but easier and you struggle through daily life.

Being the smallest college in California, the faculty and staff are attentive in the students' successes. The professors learn the student's names within the first week and create lasting relationships with them. The school is small and quaint, surrounded by desert beauty, and full of opportunity. This college is over-looked for having extraordinary resources, unfortunately. Copper Mountain College is the heart of the high desert.
The biggest complaint is the faculty are rude and abrasive. The process of applying to college was scary and confusing (their website didn't help); yet when I called hoping to find someone who could help me I was treated as an idiot and left with more questions than before. The students, professors and cultural aspects were average. There wasn't very much to do except sight see.
