Shasta College Reviews
My online experience has been wonderful! all the classes I have taken online I have earned high grades in. I'm disciplined in organizing my schedule for work to fit my courses I have taken here. However, online is not as easy as something you do need to plan and take time out of your day to get what you need accomplished I have run into many friends who struggle with online classes because they don't hold themselves accountable for the work they need to get done. Therefore, I advise people who are looking or going to take Shasta College online courses to set time aside and life to make time for your homework and studying for finals. It will help you organize in class and help keep you functional in life.
This school has helped me every step of the way, from financial aid, to education planning, it has helped tremendously! Having taken a ten year break from school, I was decidedly nervous, but only after a few days I felt right at home. The atmosphere is laid back, without discrimination or prejudice, and makes you feel like you have been there forever. The staff is friendly and capable, and there are many programs offered to help you along your collegiate path. The library is well stocked, with many private study rooms to choose from, as well as a textbook lending library that helped me the first couple of weeks in my Pysch 101 class. I recommend taking the college preparatory class, STU 1. This class is amazing in its ability to not only help with anything school related, but also a great way to focus on introspection. In this class I was able to gain a respect for myself and others I had once thought impossible. A great school all around, I highly recommend it.
I loved the campus and the library database was very helpful. However, the counselors were not that helpful. There was only one that helped me and was very helpful and actually got me to were I needed to go. Wish I could remember her name her office room was located on the left when you walk in through the double doors of admissions. Anyway the others weren't helpful at all. My experience on this campus was average. However, the Early Childhood Education instructors were amazing!! I would highly recommend them in a heart beat to anyone wanting to pursue this field! The math department was not helpful at all. I would give them a rating of a 1 in terms of being social and willing to help others who are not good at mathematics. The book store has improved on their merchandise as well as being helpful for others and costs going down a bit for college students to afford their materials.
