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 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.
Santiago Canyon College has many opportunities for students to succeed to either transfer, associated, or get a certificate. The campus is big for its located up in the mountains right behind it is Irvine Regional Park. New buildings are the science center, humanities center, and the library. The library is two stories high and can rent study rooms even for one person (as long as no big groups kick you out). I love how much nature is in and around the campus. The only downside is how far it is and the food around it. They do have a cafeteria but not a lot of selection. The restaurants around are a bit expensive for me.
