Santa Barbara City College is such an amazing and diverse community college. I loved going to school with people of all ages, race, gender and more. Every single staff member and professor are endlessly helpful. They have great path to success programs and counselors to help every student strive to be their best! They are a 5/5 star rating under any aspect from professors to academics to clubs and it doesn't matter who you are or what you enjoy because everyone and anyone can find their passion and style at Santa Barbara city college!
Santa Barbara City College is the number one community college in the nation for transferable credits! Located a stones-throw from beautiful sunny California beaches, it is no surprise it has been accredited as the best community college in the country.
The best thing about SBCC is the quality of education. Professors are very helpful if you seek it and extremely knowledgeable. They push you more that you would expect from a community college so it is taught at university level standards. I also think that the facilities are pretty awesome with a beautiful stadium that overlooks the ocean and great library and computer lab. Start here, have some fun at the beach across the street, and learn lots!
