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!

I really enjoyed my time at Folsom Lake College. The campus is technologically updated and sound, and also offers a safe, clean environment. The professors can be hit or miss, but that's the same at any school. The only reason I didn't give all 5 stars is because of the courses offered - definitely a barebones school. If you only looking for an abundance of different subjects, this is not going to be the only junior college you attend. It's kind of like going grocery shopping at a gas station; you may get a few of the things on your list but you will have to go to the grocery store to get everything you want.
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.
