Sacramento City College Reviews
Excellent experience overall. The people who work here are extremely friendly and helpful every single day. Despite it being a community college, it prides itself on helping it's students succeed at the highest level. The campus is very pretty and quite pleasing to the eye. A very diverse crowd embodies the wonderful, friendly faces of this community college. The sports of the school are not very strong, but every student athlete takes pride in what they do. The professors can vary for each students experience, but I have had professors range from decent to excellent! The biology professors transfer their confidence and passion onto their students which creates a better overall learning environment. Great community college experience. I highly recommend it.
Sacramento City College is a great school to attend when coming in as a freshman or new college student. It is a small community of students, which I something that I really like. Since the classes are on average smaller than classes at other colleges and universities, the professors are very interactive with their students. I have been able to ask questions to clarify things, in which the professors have been very helpful and I truly see that they want their students to be successful. The campus is has a nice scenery and is in a very good location of Sacramento. The student population is very diverse with students of various different backgrounds. Something that I would maybe like to see change regarding this school could be counseling and picking classes. It is sometimes hard to see a counselor and obtain all the information you need, but they are overall productive and helpful. However, I believe counseling could use some improvement overall.
My online classes were just as difficult as on-campus classes but because they were a lot more flexible with some aspects of the class, it made it possible for students, me included, to work while taking these kinds of courses. Unlike some other courses, the professors here realize that most students who are taking online courses also are working; so instead of making students attend a zoom meeting, professors will record their lectures and post them for students to review on their own time. They also give students ample time to complete their homework and provide study material for exams.
