    This is a great school! It is extremely cheap, one of the cheapest community colleges in California (OCC is about 15$ more per credit which really does add up). Of course Community Colleges are known for being fairly cheap, and Saddleback is no exception. Saddleback offers great schooling at near free tuition costs. The library also rents out the textbooks to students who need help with buying books, however you can only keep the book for a few hours in the library. If school is a monetary issue, definitely apply for Financial Aid, if approved most everything will be covered and you will get your education for almost free. Without FAFSA, this school still has a great bang for the buck great great classes, for a way lower fee than other four year universities. The intro classes that you take will be of the same quality as classes from other universities.

    I would say that I definitely feel like I go my money's worth by investing on my education at this college. none of my classes were overly full. The Professors are all generally friendly and eager to assist students. The Counseling department is resourceful and willing to help students with academic and personal issues.

    The cafeteria at Saddleback offers food similar to Panda Express and at a cheaper price.

    By going to Saddleback college, you are saving much more money and getting just as good of an education as going to a four-year university. There's no worry in getting the best bang for your buck!
