Review San Juan College
San Juan College is a smaller community college in Farmington, NM. It is for the most part a 2 year college however they are starting to obtain 4 year programs through other universities, for example they now have a bachelor program for nursing through the University of New Mexico. It is a great college to go to if you aren't sure what you want to major in. They have tons of classes you can take in order to get your pre requisites out of the way. It's a clean campus and a safe campus. There are some pretty good professors there too! San Juan College also participates in a Dual Credit Program so that high school juniors and Seniors can get college credits while in high school. I knew a couple people that graduated with their associates degree days before graduating high school. It's a nice community college!
San Juan College is conveniently located in central Farmington with breath-taking views of the surrounding bluffs. The classes are affordable and the instructors are very knowledgeable. San Juan College is a short walk away from some major shopping centers and restaurants. However, you'll never have to leave campus if you don't want to because the college has a full cafeteria, bookstore, Starbuck's Coffee café, library, and gym. By the way, the gym, located in the Health and Human Performance Center is free to students. My experience with San Juan College has been more than satisfactory. The only thing that I would change is that I wish it were a four year university rather than a two year community college. With that being said, Fort Lewis in Durango, Colorado is just a short 45 minute drive from the San Juan campus if you need to take higher level classes or transfer to a major university.
I have had some good and bad experiences with online classes. The ones that have been great experiences have had teachers that were good. They helped when they could and responded quickly to emails and questions. Most were fair in their grading and giving ample time to submit our assignments. The main bad experience I had was the teacher was not very understanding. I was basically in labor with my baby and she would not let me extend my test. It was to be completed at that date and time with no exceptions! She was not budging on that one. Needless to say, I had my baby the very next morning!
