Review Shasta College
My experience with a majority of my professors has been great, at least with those teachers that make an effort to make learning more enjoyable, unlike the teachers that are very monotone and make the experience of being in class very dreadful. The courses that are hands on and those that involve being in a classroom, are very well put together as well as structured, everything taught revolves around the courses main purpose as to what one is intended to walk away with having learned. Even from the teachers that are very boring and such, one still leaves having learned some sort of valuable credible information. Many classes that I have participated in have been relatively of normal size, at least 15-20 students, other classes just from having heard from peers can often range from 4 students to 80 in a class.
Many students that i have met, mainly males have only come to Shasta to play sports, most are dedicated to football, they take the bare minimum of classes and often don't even attend those classes. There are many other students who are fully dedicated in their career paths and strive to take as many units as possible to help them in their field of study, but also work, showing commitment and responsibility. There haven't been many employers who come to recruit here at the college, it has mainly been military personal such as the Marines, and Navy. The schools career center is very well ran, in the sense that it really helps students obtain jobs on campus, students work in the cafeteria or in the school's own restaurant or even as part of the schools on campus security program.
Due to wanting to stay within the agriculture business, Shasta provides a great program that helps students who choose to stay involved in Ag or Ag based majors. The work is strenuous due to being hands on in some of my classes, and then having to go do homework after being in a three hour lab, yet in the end it will all pay off. Here at Shasta there are great facilities for students who choose to go into a more hands on field of study or work. There is; a mechanics auto body shop,welding metal shop, wood shop, culinary program, Ag farm (only 5 out of 112 junior colleges have hands on working farms). Some of these programs help students get in touch with local business around the area which allow students to work and further their experience within their field of study.
