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!
Review Santa Ana College
So far my experience at Santa Ana College has been great. If there's anything that stands out here is the profesors. They are truly caring, understanding, very knowledgeable and full of experience. They are there to help you pass their class and essentially succeed. The campus is currently under construction, it doesn't affect my studies so I don't mind. I've met many great people here. The students are diverse and are also willing to help and work with one another. The location is perfect, starbucks, target, cvs, taco bell, carls jr, McDonald's, mexican and Chinese food along with frozen yogurt are all across the street.
My tenure at Santa Ana College has been okay. I regret not taking advantage of the amazing counseling help provided at school. If you ask for help to make an Education Plan for a few years then transfer it will be great but it ultimately comes down to the student and his/her dedication. If the student put all in effort and does great at SAC you'll definitely be at one of the countries best Universities. I learned that being lazy and not being dedicated will not take you far and it will lead you to drop out. Luckily I caught myself just in time and hey cannot complain if all goes well I'll be at a great University next semester! But yea school wise there are programs you can join in order to be involved but I feel that majority of the students just went to school and left as class ended. It all comes down to what the individual is willing to put forward into their education.
