I like San Jacinto South campus for several reasons. They go out of their way to inform students of the different opportunities on campus. Ex: student jobs (with flexible hours!), undergraduate research opportunities (travel fees paid for!), clubs/organizations that host competitions, creative writing journal, student success center in the library, tutoring, ect. All professors are required to have office hours, and this makes them easily accessible for asking questions or getting help. The student center is seemingly always hosting a fun activity, often with free food, which helps to create a friendly air on campus. Finally, the snacks in the honors language are nonprofit ($0.50 for a bag of chips, or drink).

My honest thoughts of my first semester back to college is fun, welcoming, and exciting! San Jacinto have tons of resources and the weekend times for tutoring are free an convenient when you work and take care of a family of three. Every associate working works to help the students in every way they can; and San Jacinto is affordable!
I really enjoyed my experience at this school. My professors were very dedicated in their teaching which was a big motivation. There are always fun activities going on in the student center. Lots of clubs to partake in. You won't be bored if you enrolled here, plus a quality education that is the fraction of the cost of most 4 year universities. Save yourself a few hundred dollars! God knows we need them
