Santiago is an amazing college for it has not only intelligent, dedicated staff but a wide array of unique and connected students. The student body in a whole is generally accepting and willing to help, all you have to do is ask. Same goes for the staff as they are truly one of kind! They must have been built in the back office or something! Such amazing people who are ready to help you succeed and achieve your goals! Highly recommend!

I would like to see more community and school pride/spirit. You do receive a good education while here; however there is no sense of belonging. I would also like to see more classes offered. The basic classes are offered, but classes like criminal justice, specialty science classes, and computer classes are not available or extremely limited. I would love to see more diversity in classes and subjects.
The online courses here at Santiago Canyon College do slightly differ from the in classroom experience. These differences being all interactions were over email and discussion threads and there were no in class or face to face meetings with professors and classmates. Registering for these classes is often no problem because the professors teaching them often hold two separate classes of the same course. This ensures there is enough space for most students considering to join. Although the courses are online, there is peer-to-peer interaction because the professors incorporate an online discussion thread where students are expected to post about a given topic and respond to each other's posts. The work load is definitely manageable if one plans their time accordingly. Contacting the professors is done through an emailing system which is not a problem considering each professor goes out of their way to make sure they respond within 24 hours.
