Santiago Canyon College Reviews

Santiago Canyon College is an excellent community college that has professors and advisors who really care and are eager to help their students meet their educational goals.

Each professor I've had here were personable and accessible when I needed clarification on an assignment or anything course related. Likewise, the counseling center had advisors who were just as approachable and helpful when I needed to switch majors and help with transferring to a Cal State. Every staff member I've met in each department made each of my questions about transferring and completing classes less painless.

There were many resources on campus offered for everyone to use to make their college experience more pleasant and uncomplicated than it needs to be. Additionally, the library is beautiful, class sizes are proportioned smaller and the campus is nestled in a quiet, more rural part of suburban Orange which makes the environment more peaceful. 10/10 recommend this college to anybody!

Amazing professors and students! Everyone is always willing to help if you ever need it. The school offers a variety of resources to assist you in your learning experience. If your goal is to transfer you can easily achieve that given the resources they have. It may be difficult to make a decision on a major but given the time spent on campus you are able to explore all options. Also, as a partial STEM major their science classes are outstanding. The campus and equipment is very nice for a community college! I highly recommend SCC to anyone looking to work towards their future goals!
Santiago Canyon College has a beautiful,easy to navigate campus with plenty of parking. The teachers can be a hit or miss depending on the major one may be focusing on but overall, teachers are well educated, helpful and above average. Counseling offices and transfer center are both efficiently ran and there to help!
