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

Being out of school for 4 years, my overall experience at San Jacinto is AMAZING! The staff are very helpful and are patient when it comes to any needs or concerns that you may have pertaining to school. I did not feel out of place this is a very caring school. The professors here live up to the saying "open door policy" they always willing to help you find your niche in a subject if you experiencing a difficult time. Online learning here is just as simple as an in class setting .
for the most part, SJCC cares about their students. I personally go to specific advisers that I trust and that are patient and smart. I prefer the smaller classes as the professors can take their time and really teach the material better. The campus is nice for it's size and location. The student activities program tries it's best to involve students and you can count on free food every Wednesday. Score!
The selling point of this campus is definitely it's location and it's price point.
A great stepping stone for transfer students.
