Shasta College Reviews
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 graduated from Shasta College quite a few years ago and I loved it then and I still love it now. They have expanded their classes now to also include some 4 year degrees. That is how accommodating they truly are. The office staff is super friendly and the instructors really work with you. The campus is very laid back and the food available on campus is great. Whether you want more upscale or casual fare. They have it all. What I love most that they have changed over the years is how they have added online learning. This has made it easier for me as an adult working student to be able to do my studies on my own time. I will be earning another degree/certificate without having to set foot on campus unless I want or need to. Talk about convenience! I recommend going here if you have a chance.
I am a returning Shasta College student. To be completely honest, the first time around I wasn’t very successful with my academics but now I have more faith and confidence that I did before. I am prepared to achieve my dreams and slash my goals. The sole reason I applied to Shasta College wasn’t because it was the closest College near me but because the campus and professors. The professors give information while being available to answer any questions you may have, they’re more than willing to help.
