    I have many friends, and I'm also able to join many outside activities that really interest me here in Sierra College. Although I've just been here for only a year, my college showed me really much about how different between the two educational systems of my country and the U.S. It makes me feel like going to school more than when I was in my country...I love my college.

    The campuses are great, the facilities are big, and the FREE worskshops are very helpful. The amount of helpers, counselors, and tutors really help students get all the help they need!

    As much as I like being in my hometown, I'm not very excited to being attending school here anymore. I am ready to move after two years.

    In some instances, I did enjoy being there, but surrounded by students that really don't care for grades and are only there so they don't have to work did begin to grate on me. The campuses are beautiful and the tutor center was the best I've ever seen it. Some classes left a lot to be desired, but others, especially the science classes and Human Geography class were so awesome I did not want to stop.

    The campus is welcoming, yet spacious. All the classrooms and neat and modern, as enjoyable to be in as classrooms can be. The library, learning and writing center and test centers are all very resourceful and accommodating, making studying and research more convenient and successful.
