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!

Santiago Canyon College is a great two-year college. It offers your basic general education classes, but it also offers a unique program. This is one of the few campuses that offer courses that prepare students for careers in water treatment/waste water treatment. The class curriculum is based off what the state will be testing applicants on. The college even offers special review sessions before the state testing date, as there are only 2 state tests every year.
I give a 5-star to Santiago Canyon College because the day that I was going to give up in my studying. A Program part of Santiago Canyon College called CAMP mayed my mind change that I had to keep on going to school even when I was a new mom I thought that it was over for me but it really was not to get my degree. They help me a lot they really want the student to have the best experience ever in continuing their education. If it would have been for them I wouldn't be in college, I wouldn't be almost to finish graduating School. I'm looking forward for next year to graduating and transferring to Dominguez or to Cal State Fullerton or wherever life takes me. But I'm thankful for the staff of Canyon College for being there when I needed guidance and encouragement to keep on with my education for being there for me when I needed them and for pointing me to the right direction that's why I give it five to Santiago Canyon College.
