    Great for these types of students

    Chaffey College is great for students who are looking for faculty members that are passionate in their area of expertise and diversity. Also, students who wish to transfer are recommended to attend Chaffey College. There are various programs and organizations that can assist you on your journey like the Honors Program, Phi Theta Kappa, and the Associated Students of Chaffey College. Chaffey College is a great school for students who are looking for a life changing experience.

    Tips for prospective students

    I recommend you to visit the campus. It is small, but it is convenient and advantageous when it comes down to whether or not you want to be knowledgeable of the resources available for you. If you want to make the most out of your college experience but you are a bit timid to do so, Chaffey is the right place for you. Chaffey College has a highly motivated and friendly population of students and faculty.

    Bang for the buck

    There are so many scholarships that are offered through the Associated Students of Chaffey College, and the Foundation Office. All students can apply for these scholarships. Chaffey College exceeded my expectations through their continuous care for the needs of the students on campus. It is truly commendable that they have so much assistance on campus for students.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy being on campus and interacting with the other students. There are so many places to eat, sit, and study. The campus is becoming beautifully constructed and very clean.

    Am learning a lot

    Chaffey College has a small campus so it was easier for me to find the resources I needed. The student population is so diverse, I learned how to appreciate the different cultures, languages, and backgrounds.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply as soon as possible, the longer you are here, the better registration date you will get. Don't be afraid to fight for a spot in class, waitlist, waitlist, waitlist!! Be open to meeting new friends wherever you are on campus, from in class, to when you're buying a snack in the bookstore.

    Bang for the buck

    I have a BOGW Fee Waiver, which I got by filling out my FAFSA. It makes the fees super inexpensive, although books can be pricey.

    Am enjoying being here

    I LOVE Chaffey! It has a great environment, and I have a wonderful group of friends that make it so much better! I have made wonderful friends both from being in classes with them, and also from hanging around the same areas on campus. Make sure you aren't completely closed off to people, and you will have a great experience here!

    Am learning a lot

    Chaffey has taught me so much, not only in classes, but about life as well. The classes vary in difficulty, but I always learn a lot.

    People whose grades weren't so hot after high school or people just looking to learn something knew.

    Tips for prospective students

    If your grades after high school weren't quite good enough to land you into a 4 year college like me, finish your GE here and remember to do really well. They even have an honors program that has some ties to other universities.

    Bang for the buck

    I get fee waivers so I don't pay for my classes. Only thing I really buy is books but I just rent them from other sites which is a lot cheaper.

    Am enjoying being here

    Being that I am saving quite a bit from going here, I do enjoy that. I'm really looking forward to finally transferring to a 4 year next year. Don't want to be here too long.

    Am learning a lot

    I take the Broadcasting and Cinema classes so its very useful that I'm getting a hands on approach so I know what I'm doing.

    Academic Rigor

    the curriculum at chaffey can be rigorous depending on what your major is, and what classes you take; but overall anyone can pass their classes as long as you study outside of class hours, and seek tutoring, if necessary.

    Tips for prospective students

    if you are unable to receive all your classes that are needed do not give up, just at least get your foot in the door; even if it means taking one or two classes. if a class is full do not give up try to get on the wait list or try and add, and persistently show up to the class you are trying to get into. last make sure you build relationships with your teachers, and counselors.

    What to do for fun

    within the immediate area there is the fontana speedway, ontario mills (the nation's largest discount mall supposedly), and victoria gardens, which is an open air mall. there is a bowling alley in the city. in neighboring ontario there is the honda center - where the lakers will occasionally play pre-season games. most of the action is of course within a 45 minute drive. head north and you can be skiing, head southwest and you will hit the beach, head west and you will hit l.a., head east and you will hit las vegas (within three hours though).

    Food and Dining

    they have a starbucks built into the cafeteria. i believe everyone is happy with that. they used to have a taco bell stand, but no longer. they have a small quickie-mart. the cafeteria food is okay, super greasy though. to make up for the lack of choice on campus, there is a mcdonald's, a del taco, a jack-in-the-box, a subway, two mom and pop pizza joints, a donut shop, a mexican restaurant, a dominoes, a pub, a korean pho restaurant, and a hawaiian barbeque all within two or three blocks.

    Dorm Life

    there are no dorms available since it is a community college. however, i will say this, the parking is horrible. not near enough spaces, and far too many spaces dedicated to staff. in fact, there is a staff parking lot that is never beyond 15% filled permanently. however, students are left to park down a block or two from the college, which is no easy venture since the college is built on a hill.

    Academic Rigor

    the academic rigor depends on which professors you take. there are professors that make it extremely easy to do well. they want you to pass, they want you to move on, or sometimes they don't care. then there are the professors who make it a real challenge, however they do so with the goal of making you a better student or professional in that field. then there are professors who make it a very real challenge with absolutely no regard for your success. i find the latter to usually be tenured (but not always - sometimes they're adjuncts with a grudge). the good professors are very good, and you walk away feeling all the wiser. the bad professors are very bad, and you walk away feeling ripped off. i'm sure it is that way with most colleges.

    Tips for prospective students

    obtain a degree plan quickly or take the guidance courses to help you find what what degree you should aim for, while taking your general education courses. it is critical to find out what you want to do with your life. plus, if you do this then you will save time and money.

    In three sentences

    chaffey is a good way to save for the bigger universities. it will help prepare you for a four year or even just a vocational certificate. it is truly up to the student to take what they can, because there is a lot available if you have a plan.

    Dorm Life

    Academic Rigor

    i have been reformed into quite an academically rigorous student as a result from the great professors i have learned from. they have placed within me a burning desire to achieve more and more knowledge.

    Tips for prospective students

    Work hard and plan out which courses are necessary for the field of education that most interests you. I would highly recommend discussing with professors that are experts in fields your interested in. I say this for, having done this myself, I have benefited greatly through these interactions; because the knowledge I received helped me refine my scholarly desires and thus guided me onto a better college plan suited for me.

    In three sentences

    I must say that Chaffey College has been an outstanding college to have begun my scholarly journey. The fellow students that I have met here have proven to be quite a diverse and fantastic group. And best of all, I have been taught and academically assisted by some of the very best faculty members of this school; all of these benefits without having to pay a fortunate.

    Campus Safety

    Pretty safe; I've been stargazing on campus at 10pm on two different occasions, and both times I was stopped by campus police and questioned. Considering that classes go on until around 9:30 at night, security is pretty good, even during non-traditional class hours.

    Greek Life

    Nope.

    Clubs and Activities

    Clubs and extracurricular activities advertise well; you'll be found by one that piques your interest if you don't go looking for one. Teachers are very supportive of clubs, and frequently take part in events, which is surprising for such a small community college.

    Great for these types of students

    Students looking to save money who have faith in their academic ability and focus. You can easily transfer into the most prestigious institutions in the state from Chaffey, provided you maintain a good GPA, which is fairly easy here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    None to really speak of.

    Bang for the buck

    Ridiculously cheap, and just as good as a 4-year institution for your lower-division classes. I paid $35 a unit, which is a steal compared to anything in the CSU or UC systems.

    What to do for fun

    There are a lot of clubs that meet and hang out and discuss things, for a pretty wide range of interests. The college is also very close to the local foothills and mountains, and there is some really incredible hiking a short drive away - around 20 minutes at most.

    Food and Dining

    Food on campus, but it's expensive and limited. There's also food down the street, a few restaraunts, but nothing nice. Vegetarians beware, finding variety here is a challenge.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms, housing, apartments, and rooms in the area are hard to come by and expensive. Only for local students really, or individuals in an exchange program.

    Academic Rigor

    Teachers are good as a rule, but sometimes teachers will go easy and appeal to the lowest common denominator. On occasion, a teacher will be incredibly demanding and difficult, which is refreshing, but can throw you for a loop.

    Tips for prospective students

    See a counselor, decide what you want (transfer, nursing program, etc), make a plan, take the classes. You'll be out in no time. It can be tough getting into classes as a new student; take electives or whatever you can get to bump your credits and increase your priority.

    In three sentences

    Excellent value for the money. Great teachers as a rule, but there are a few poor exceptions, so research names. Good counselors; make a plan.

    Personally I have never had a problem and I have taken classes early in the mornings, late at night, and on the weekends (when they were available). The campus is well lit, and is patrolled regularly by campus police.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many different clubs on campus that appeal to a multitude of interests. Most students will find something for them. Clubs collaborate on different activities together, and many students belong to more than one.

    Great for these types of students

    Chaffey College is great for students who are getting their general education in preparation for transfer to a university.

    Food and Dining

    On campus availability is decent. Starbucks is 2 miles south on Haven. Corky's Kitchen and Bakery at the 210 and Haven has delicious food at reasonable prices, I love to go there before a test and get food and study.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are harder than others, naturally. Personally I try to balance each semester with classes that will require alot of homework with others that perhaps are not as rigorous. For me, the science classes have always been the most difficult but there is quite a bit of help available at the success centers as well as classroom supplemental instruction (SI).

    Tips for prospective students

    Meet with a counselor as soon as possible upon starting at Chaffey and if you intend to transfer make a decision sooner than later about where to transfer so you do not take classes that will not transfer to your prospective university. If you need a class and it is full, show up on the first day anyway, chances are you may get added. Join a club, it helps to make connections with other students and the community.

    In three sentences

    Chaffey College is an excellent school. Most of the professors I have had have been helpful and gear their classes for success. The clubs on campus are active both on campus and in the community. The campus itself is easily accessible off the 210 fwy and is nice and well kept.

    Academic Rigor

    The Honor courses are some of the best challenges anyone can decide to take on. They stimulate one to think, and search for answers. They leave you wanting for more! They will prepare you for any college you plan to transfer to afterwards.

    Chaffey college has the resources for students to be successful, from the computer labs to the success centers. But there are issues getting classes because of the lack of funds in California. Parking can be an issue but overall a great school.

    Bang for the buck

    While tuition in the state of California is increasing, Chaffey is still one of the best community colleges one can attend because it is relatively cheap. It is much better to attend a community college like Chaffey for the first two years before transferring because you get the same level of general education you would get at a CSU or UC for only a fraction of the price. The bookstore is pricey when it comes to text books but they now added the option to rent a textbook for a semester at a significantly reduced price, which is convenient when you're trying to save some extra cash.

    What to do for fun

    Students can hang out in the quad with there friends. They sometimes have special events hosted by certain clubs in the quad, where students can ask questions and participate. People can go to the track and field to exercise or head to the pool when it is open to public. They also have a basketball court if you feel the need to shoot some hoops. One of the most fun things you can do in addition to showing school spirit is attending sporting events as a spectator and root for your Panthers.

    Food and Dining

    Chaffey has a Starbucks and Coffee Bean on campus, as well as a dining commons with plenty of seating that has several menu items like burritos, sandwiches, pizza, etc. It's very easy to find a snack or beverage vending machine and if you don't have cash or change, you can swipe a credit card. Also, the student/book store has a variety of snacks and munchies that can be purchased if you need something quick to munch on.

    Dorm Life

    There are no on campus dorms at Chaffey. However, there are several apartment complexes within a reasonable distance to the college.

    Academic Rigor

    Chaffey expects a lot out of its students. The work is challenging but fair. The academic work can be mastered with the proper mindset, time management, and the appropriate learning habits that should have been developed in high school. The instructors are extremely fair and material can be learned if the student puts forth the effort. If extra help outside the classroom is needed, Chaffey has several success centers which focus on specific departments of academia where the student can be assisted by tutors and learning workshops.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would definitely recommend that prospective students attend class each and every day. It is also important that you speak with your counseling staff and admissions whenever you have any questions regarding which classes the student needs to take. I've noticed that a lot of people intend to assume that they are on course and that they can take their educational planning into their own hands because they claim to know the ropes. It's better to ask the people who deal with these matters on a daily basis than to assume and find out, for example, that you might have accidentally taken classes that you didn't even need.

    In three sentences

    Chaffey Community College provides excellent student services. They have all the classes necessary for students looking to complete their general education before transferring to a CSU or UC within two years. They employ a staff that is dedicated to passing down their teachings and knowledge to their students in hopes that it will benefit whatever education or career choices they make.

    Within my first year, I switched my majors about three times and the good thing about doing that was it did not cost my a lot of money. I did take classes that I didn't need for the fun of it and that is what helped me shape my major.

    Chaffey just recently put in the Dining Commons; which is an on-campus cafeteria that also has a starbucks inside. The food is great with decent prices.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms at Chaffey College.

    Academic Rigor

    Even though this is a community college, it doesn't mean that the work load will be easier. Treat every class as if it were at a university, because it has the same academic work load as one.

    Tips for prospective students

    1) Even though we are not forced to go to class, it is evident that we show up to every class meeting fully prepared and ready to learn. 2) DO NOT study the night before an exam. Study every day after class so the material gets instilled in your brain. 3)Pay attention to deadlines, they are your responsibility.

    In three sentences

    The staff and faculty are excellent and really care about each and every one of his or her students' success.

    Food and Dining

    Chaffey has a few cafes and snack stores. They also have snacks available in the bookstore. One of my favorite things about Chaffey is that they have a Starbucks on Campus! Every college student needs that little caffeine boost sometimes.

    Dorm Life

    There is no on-campus living available.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors at Chaffey are well educated and are fantastic teachers. With placement testing, students are placed in their correct Math and English classes, which makes the curriculum easier for students at lower learning levels.

    Tips for prospective students

    For a prospective student, I would recommend making counseling appointments a few weeks before one intends to be seen. Since there are so many students, seeing a counselor or taking placement tests can be very busy. I would also recommend doing a bit of planning and consideration on one's own, since this process can be so difficult.
