I think Saddleback is the perfect community college to go to if you plan on transferring to a four year university. The classes are interesting and the professors are all excellent and intelligent. It was an easy campus to navigate and there were so many resources on campus that were designed to help the students- like the tutoring center, the library, etc. Loved going to saddleback for three years!

Saddleback College was a great experience for me! It was the first college I attended, but I can honesty say after high school it was such a refreshment! The most amazing thing that I love about this college is that the school really chooses their professors wisely. There hasn't been a professor that wasn't highly educated and well-spoken. It was such a blessing to know that every class was going to be informative and have so much care from all of these amazing professors! One thing I would change is to maybe have a bit more resources for transferring students! Even though they have an amazing transfer and counseling center, it was always a bit tough getting in for an appointment because of how busy it was. But other than that it was a great school! Many amazing memories!
With my short time at Saddleback College, it has prepared me to enter the real world as well as help me transfer to Cal State Long Beach for Economics. Saddleback College is the perfect stepping stone for anyone who does not know what they want to major in or just to save money on schooling. The campus, faculty, and students are truly amazing, and I cannot wait to see where the school is heading in the future!
