I started attending Sierra College the fall after my high school graduation, and had major doubts about it since it was a community college. But to my surprise, my first semester was actually pretty great! I got a bunch of great teachers who seemed very passionate and interested in the course they were teaching. The campus is a decent size, not small and yet not crazy huge, so it's relatively easy getting to classes on time. The grounds are well kept too! During my first semester I would often sit on the grass under a tree working on assignments or eating my lunch. I never really felt uncomfortable either, everyone is either minding their own business or many are looking to make friends. The library is my favorite place on campus. Sierra college in Rocklin would be my number one recommendation to students who are unsure of where to start, or if they are in a situation of money insecurity. It's a great place to figure out your future!

As soon as I stepped on campus at Sierra College on my first day, I knew I had made the right decision. As a student with a disability all of my professors have been more than accomodating and extremely helpful. The academics and the learning environment is another one of my favorite parts. Both staff and students alike come everyday excited to learn!
Beautiful campus with lots of great instructors! This community college is gorgeous with lots of wildlife, dorms, and many unique programs. Lots of people go here for there first time because if how easy it is to get help with paperwork and scholarships. Not only are college counselor available 24/7, theirs also a doctors office on campus. Many of the schools resources have been built by other students and professors for many decades. It seems as if the whole town of Rocklin was made for college students with the endless chains of restaurants and many jobs.
