I enjoy Santa Ana College. They offer many programs that are resources for financing college expenses, transferring to higher education, and overall well-being of its students. Some of these programs are EOPS, CARE, Transfer Mentor program, and the list goes on. However, something I have not enjoyed about SAC are the unending construction sites, but other than that, everything is good.

Santa Ana College is a small and welcoming college. This college has a variety of classes available and the professors are always willing to help. I have met professors at this college who have responded to emails within 12 hours and are more than willing to meet after or before their office hours to answer any questions. The only down fall of this campus is the current construction. They are expanding the campus and because of that there are very minimal walk ways available. It does take longer to get from one end of the campus to the other now, but the education received here makes it worth it.
Santa Ana College is a great college especially for graduating high school students that would want to have an affordable education at a community college before transferring to a 4 year institution. Every Professor at this college really wants to see their students succeed and transfer. Classroom size is typically 40 to 1, with the Professor always being available to answer questions from students. And there's so much diversity as well with the growing International Students Program, the college has been slowly becoming more and more diverse. What I would like to see change is that they hurry up with the construction around campus!!! I hate having to walk all the way around campus just to get to my class. I'm honestly really proud of my college, it's changed so much since I first came. Good and bad ways. Like how they also started a program where incoming freshmen who graduated from a Santa Ana high district can get their first year at the college free!
