I love the accessibility of the college! I live near by and the lack of traffic and the ample parking makes early morning classes way easier to manage. The professors are all very friendly and easy to connect with. This college has amazing opportunities within it, they offer so many different and unique courses, and I personally, always feel very seat up for success.

Saddleback is a very diverse community college that is really known for helping students transfer to a four year. I think that the campus is very student friendly. Saddleback caters to all your needs; free tutoring, counseling, and academic counseling as well. It is a awesome school to go to highly recommend applying there!
I was in the science department, and I had some really excellent professors. Unfortunately, the academic counselors weren't really able to help me much with planning for transfer, so I had to do all my own research. Some of them even advised me wrongly, and I had to go against their advice because I knew it would mess me up. Besides that though, I personally never had any issues with registering for classes. Parking gets rough between 9am and noon, so get there early!
