Santiago Canyon College has an extreme diversity, there are many people from different races and ethnicity. I can say that at this college anyone can be whoever they want and do whatever they want to do in order to pursue their careers. The professors that I have had so far are helpful with anything and they offer a lot of professional help with any questions the students might have. I think it is important for every student to love the college they are going to in order for them to enjoy their stay for the years they were planning on. For me personally, I love how opened the campus is and how everyone in it is very friendly, I do recommend this college to others. Also, it is very near nature for all of those nature loving people.
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!
