Sierra College Reviews
I've been attending Sierra College, Rocklin for 2 1/2 years and am preparing to graduate. To be honest, there have been challenges. As a disabled student, don't expect anyone to make it easy. I DID NOT go in wanting anyone to make my journey easy for me, and I got what I wanted! The high caliber professors who CHOSE to work at this highly rated two year institution are without equal. If a student shows interest and commitment, their investment is returned ten fold. With clubs, sports and an Honor Society, there are plenty of opportunities to bolster that transcript and resume! An education and knowledge are priceless and can't be taken from you. Cherish them. Chose Sierra!
Sierra College is listed as Northern California's highest ranked community college for many reasons. Personally, I think the quality of the professors is the most important. They create UC level classes and ensure you get top notch education. Additionally, they all are available to help you succeed and want to help in any way they can. Another important reason Sierra College will rock your socks is the plethora of opportunities offered. From internships, high paying job connections, clubs, services, and other extracurricular activities Sierra College will help you grow in many aspects and ensures there is a place for everyone. The quality education available at Sierra College and the many opportunities are what enabled my acceptance to now transfer to Cal Berkeley. I highly recommend this school to anybody and everybody!
I attended Sierra College for 5 Years and had an amazing growing experience. Being a first generation student, I started off not knowing what to do. With the help of my Counselor Dr. Ortega he guided me into the right direction and now I am starting Nursing School in the Fall. Sierra College has several clubs of different interests and Ethnic backgrounds. They also have programs to help students out financially, mentally and physically throughout your College experience. I never felts lost or misguided at Sierra College and I recommend this school to everyone!
