So far, I have been going to Folsom Lake College for two years. I will be finishing up my last few classes in the summer of 2017. I am a nursing major however, I am graduated with my Associate's degree in mathematics and science. Throughout my 2 years of being here, I have met many new people and even started working on campus as a science mentor and math tutor! The professors here that I have had a great and are always willing to help. For a community college, this college is pretty great and I am thankful to be able to have a 7 minute commute to and from school. Thank you Folsom Lake for all the help and memories!
Review Folsom Lake College
Folsom Lake College is a great school. In my opinion academics and professors have been wonderful and very helpful, as they want to see you succeed. What brings the rating down is the school's counseling department. I have seen somewhere between 4-5 counselors at the school and only 1 was ever helpful. It almost seems as though most counselors want you to stay at the school for as long as possible, instead of wanting to help you get out in 2 years. The first time I went to see a counselor I asked her which classes I would need to take if I wanted to attend UC Berkeley in two years. She was very discouraging and even told me that I "probably will not get in to Berkeley, so I should just aim for Sacramento State instead". I have had similar experiences with other counselors as well. There was, however, one counselor that helped me lay out exactly which courses I would need to take in order to reach my goal for my desired time frame, and I am grateful for his help.
I absolutely love attending Folsom Lake College. It's a clean, beautiful campus with a gorgeous view from the Roost (Cafe). The faculty and staff are incredibly friendly and eager to help you in every way. I haven't had one bad day at FLC. The two things that I would change about FLC, is 1. more diversity (although it's difficult since Folsom consists of mostly White people) and 2. Better student life. You never see students just hanging out on campus. Students go to class and
then leave. It would be nice to have more events and attractions on campus for students to enjoy.
