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!
Review Saddleback College
Saddleback College has been a door-opener in my life. I went started attending this school thinking that this school did not have much to offer. Once I sat through my classes, I was amazed. The professors were knowledgeable in their field of study.

In my math class, my professor noticed me excelling in the class and offered me a position as a tutor in the LRC. That was a life changing opportunity. Because of that offer, I have changed my major to become a math professor.

If I could, I would choose my school again!
I attended Saddleback College for my last semester of community college before transferring to my University. I was reluctant to drive the distance at first, but the course schedule provided a more concise and convenient schedule versus the other community college I was attending at the time. I originally enrolled in Saddleback because of the amazing Interpersonal Communication classes I had heard about. My professor, Ty Torres, provided one of the greatest educational experiences I have ever been involved in. I was so nervous heading into the class and looking at the syllabus to see that we would be expected to do two, 30-60 minutes long presentations. Professor Torres sculpted the class environment to be welcoming, understanding, friendly, and familiar which gave every student a sense of comfort before committing to such a nerve-wracking feat. I think that out of every class I have been enrolled in, this would be my all time favorite.
