Santa Ana College offers plenty of resources that are available to students. The professors genuinely care about students and always make sure they are understanding the material. The campus is also clean and organized. Student government's events are catered to de-stress students during midterms and finals. Tutors can be found almost anytime and they are patient with students. Counselors are helpful and keep in touch with students to assure that they are on the right track. Overall, I have had a great experience at Santa Ana College. I was struggling in my statistics class, but the math tutors definitely helped me a lot. In fact, I received an A in that class!. I am currently in my second semester and all of my professors are passionate about what they are teaching. This helps students engage in discussions and makes learning different. It is more than just sitting, listening to the professor talk and taking notes. I love everything about it.

Excellent college! It was nerve racking to be going to a college campus for the first time. Faculty and staff made you feel so welcome and were extremely helpful to incoming students. So many different programs and clubs to join. There's many different programs that help you in the process of transferring to a university; the Punete program is a must!
I'm about to finish my first year at SAC, and it has been an amazing experience. The school has so many opportunities that people don't look for. I've been able to visit 4 UC's up north and am planning on taking a class at UCI this summer. I recommend for people who want to go here to sign up for EOPS and U-Link. The Transfer Center is there to be used, so make to use your resources. FYI I'm a 1st generation undocumented student majoring in Linguistics and Psychology!
