    Campus Safety

    the campus is close to the hospital which is great for emergencies on campus. not that there are many. we've only had a couple things happen. fire accident in classroom, threat to one of the teachers and/or students, but nothing that hasn't been taken care of by our school and the local police and firefighters. the school teachers have cracked down on those acting out of line by throwing them out of class and calling security as i witnessed recently, but that was due to a recent threat to one of the teachers. they do regard these actions seriously and also due to the recent events of school shootings, the campus (as i'm sure others also followed) is taking stuff far more seriously as of late. however every school has that one idiot that will not stop arguing after being told to be quiet and settle down. it's normal. don't let this change your mind about going here as i'm sure you'll come to find out that these types are everywhere and also that these people are just exiting out of home and trying to prove themselves to the adult world despite the lack of realization that they're still immature. if you have any concerns, please call the school and ask questions as i always regard that as a sure way to gather information. remember that you can also ask for statistics for criminal acts through researching the school and the county if you are concerned.

    Great for these types of students

    serious, mature.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    there are none that i am aware of so far.

    Bang for the buck

    cheap and worth it.

    What to do for fun

    there's not a lot to do here, but there are some things from what i've derived from others as being fun. i'm not big in the college scene. not to say that i have no life, it's just that i'm more focused on school than parties, but as it is, please talk to one of the other students. i'm sure they'll give you more information.

    Food and Dining

    the food is all right as far as i know from what little experience i've had in the cafeteria. i have allergies and cannot often eat in the place as it's just easier to bring my own food, but others have stated the food is great.

    Dorm Life

    i'm not sure as i've never lived in the dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    acceptable to get by.

    Tips for prospective students

    start registration early. make sure you take a look at offered degrees which are located just outside the counseling office. just because it is a californian school does not mean it is warm throughout the year, bring warm clothes as we do get snow. talk to your teachers and know you can ask for help. if you have a problem, take it up with our dean as she is trying to make the school more appealing for all. just tolerate the counselors and admissions office, some of them may be idiots, but just breathe and get through it.

    In three sentences

    the college is quite nice. we have many classes that can be taken to finish a degree or be able to transfer with as well. also it is a pleasant atmosphere.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very safe and comfortable for most of the students. Whenever it snows, the staff makes sure that there is salt on the sidewalk so students do not slip and fall, and the snow is cleared from the roads and walkways nice and early in the morning.

    Clubs and Activities

    They have horseback riding activities and a club, they have all kinds of sports competitions and a few clubs, they have a chess club, a science club, a math club, a history club, and a computer club. They also have a great Theater Department.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who are athletic, who are into Nursing, becoming a Fireman, or even a Florist or a Farmer.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There are barbeques and gatherings for special occasions and holidays. It is a lot of fun. Sometimes they even have a band playing on campus (not the school band).

    Bang for the buck

    It is definitely worth your money. I have learned so much in the past year at Lassen Community College, and I learn more every single day.

    What to do for fun

    Play sports, join a club, socialize, text on your cell phone, go for a walk, make new friends, and learn something new every day.

    Food and Dining

    The cafe and coffee bar are excellent. They have many different choices for each meal, along with a large variety of sodas, tea, and the best coffee. The coffee is even better than Starbucks coffee.

    Dorm Life

    I have not seen anyone or heard of anyone who lives in the dorms on campus, so I am not sure if they are being occupied or not.

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers and the staff all treat the students very well. They treat the students with courtesy and respect. The students also treat each other respectfully.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just enroll, and make sure to sign up for classes and pay for them early. They do fill up quickly. Also, make sure to fill out your FAFSA and all of your financial aid paperwork extremely early so that you can get your funds for books in time.

    In three sentences

    This is a very student-friendly campus. It is a very comfortable place. The staff certainly make students feel welcome and the staff treat each student as an individual.

    International and local alike!

    What to do for fun

    The easiest thing to do is to just a take a walk and enjoy the scenery, The cafeteria is a great place to hang out with friends or watch TV. The library is a great place to study or find a good book to read.

    Food and Dining

    The food is pretty good, and the dining area is cozy.

    Dorm Life

    I myself do not live in the dorms, so I do not know.

    Academic Rigor

    Could be better. The teachers can be a little lax, but some of them really come down hard. It depends on the class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be ready for some interesting characters in teachers and students alike! You will find it a great experience.

    In three sentences

    It is a diverse college that can offer a wide variety of subjects to a wide cultural background of students. It not only serves the local community but also international exchange students. It is a beautifully scenic campus overlooking the entire town of Susanville.
