Right now with COVID, we are in a remote learning schedule. While it was a bit difficult at first professors really adapted quickly. Santa Ana College also has student resources available through Zoom for students who need extra help! Santa Ana College cares about its students and makes sure they have everything they need to succeed.

I love how involved the counselors are with the students. The campus is great! There are also lots of student resources around campus such as the tutoring center and the computer lab. If you are a Santa Ana high school graduate you can take advantage of the SAC promise which will help you with paying for classes, books, and laptop loans.
I took all my classes online, so far I can say that it really depends which professor is teaching your class. The class will always be fun and interesting as long as it's up to your interests and the professor is actually helping you learn. One of my classes that I was really excited to take ended up being really boring because the professor was just talking and talking. The professor never gave the students the opportunity to engage. On the other hand, the other class that I'm taking, which I wasn't really excited for, is actually now my favorite because the professor talks but also allows the students to express themselves and participate. This professor teaches us in a really fun and creative way. So online school is really great depending on the professor that you chose for your classes
