Saddleback College Reviews
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!
I love Saddleback College. It offers good programs and instructors, a varied schedule, and good academic support. I took many classes there over the years. Eventually, they sent me a degree in the mail! I didn't realize my classes had added up to an Associate's Degree. I especially enjoyed the art department.
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!
