    Greek Life

    No Greek life.

    Academic Rigor

    Academia at Norco College can be rigorous but usually can come with the right to staff to help you through it. I’ve had many professors who were always willing to stay and listen to our questions. I think academia at this campus is better than Riverside campus where many professors do not even care if you fail.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms available at Norco College.

    In three sentences

    Norco College is a small campus compared to many other schools. I believe because of its size and student to staff ratio it actually pretty beneficiary to those attending. Norco college staff cares about their students, all it takes is some effort to seek help!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Not sure of any weird traditions. I know Norco ASB is awesome! And tries their best to get students involved in student activities.

    Bang for the buck

    Norco college is definitely bang for your buck! Bog waivers always available along with financial aid!

    Tips for prospective students

    For future students I advice to get into a program. Any kind of program can benefit you as a student and future adult of the world. People are willing to help, you just need to ask for it.

    Clubs and Activities

    Awesome clubs.

    Food and Dining

    Cafeteria food can be iffy. I do like the options of being able to create your own items and putting what you’d like in them. They also have many things on hand to make for you at your request.

    Campus Safety

    I have never felt any danger at Norco college. It is a home, safe feeling campus.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who are trying to get in, get their classes done, and get out.

    Campus Safety

    Has campus police and emergency buttons all around the school, so you will always be save here. Although, you must always have a parking permit or pass cause they will give you a ticket if you don't.

    What to do for fun

    Norco has a variety of clubs but they do not advertise them very much. Who knows how to join them?

    Food and Dining

    Norco has a great cafeteria with a variety of food. The chicken strips are the best but may not be very healthy. The pricing is pretty normal to a fast food place,

    Dorm Life

    I don't think they have dorms because it is a community college. If they do i wouldn't know anything about it anyways. I live at home.

    Academic Rigor

    It all depends on the the professor but for the most part they care here. Sometimes though they may care way to much. You can almost never be late or absent.

    Tips for prospective students

    The teachers and staff are helpful. If you know your major or not they will help you till the end. If doing well in classes it is easier to register for classes.

    In three sentences

    The teachers and staff are very helpful. There is always parking. it is easy to find what you need.

    Campus Safety

    ALWAYS helpful.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    This campus has a lot of trees but when they bloom they have HUGE balls of pollen, so I would carry Allegra for students who have allergies!

    Food and Dining

    The food at Norco college is fresh and offers vegetarian choices. The only down side to the food provided is they don't offer a lot of healthy alternatives other than sandwiches and salads. I worked in the cafeteria for the spring semester of 2013 and the employees were fun and very sociable. On multiple occasions I was able to carry on a conversation with customers and make friends with them.

    Dorm Life

    unfortunately Norco College doesn't have on-campus living.

    Academic Rigor

    The difficulty in any classroom setting is always set by the teacher. Choose your teachers wisely. I would go onto ratemyprofessor.com and look up the student ratings on the teacher before registering for the class.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would recommend to impending students to seek help from the teachers ALWAYS because they are willing to listen and understand the struggles you are having. If you are feeling pressured by the work load Norco offers tutors to help ease any subject you are not understanding. One last tip would be to check in with the counselor before applying for classes because they print out a list of classes needed for graduation on the degree you plan on obtaining.

    In three sentences

    This campus is PERFECT for first time college students looking to go to a community college that is not huge at a glance and offers small comfortable classrooms. The teachers are ALWAYS helpful and the students are more than friendly,they are welcoming and very sociable. This school allows me to experience college the way I imagined it would be and allows me the opportunity to succeed with the FREE workshops offered at Norco College and the help I receive from the awe-inspiring counselors and staff.

    Food and Dining

    Have not had a chance to eat on campus.

    Dorm Life

    They don't have dorms.

    Tips for prospective students

    It's a great campus. Take the time to visit and walk around. If you can take a summer starter class by all means do so. It gives you the best feel of what lies ahead.

    In three sentences

    So far it has been a great experience. Taking a class this summer made me feel more comfortable with the whole college experience and what I have to look forward to this year. The staff were very friendly and made a newbie like me feel very at ease.

    What to do for fun

    My fun is spending time with my wife, son, and studying my butt off.

    Food and Dining

    I have been trying to live a healthy life and Norco College provides healthy items, but it does also offer other items for the non-healthy to indulge.

    Dorm Life

    I live at home with my wife and Norco College does not have Dorms on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    All the professors that I have came across at Norco College have been a huge success for me and still continue to be. If you allow yourself to engage in allowing your brain to be filled with knowledge then you can do anything that you put your mind to.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would honestly say to follow your dreams and to not let anyone or anything get in your way of achieving your goals and dreams. Sky's the limit and with all the helpful resources here at Norco College you can be set up for success if you allow yourself to be driven and goal oriented.

    In three sentences

    I can honestly say that Norco College is an amazing college to attend. Not only are the staff and Professors very helpful but all the resources available are very helpful. I am very grateful to be part of the Norco College family and I would not trade my home campus for any other.

    Campus Safety

    Our college is very safe. We have a campus police station, there's safety alarm polls throughout our college. Maybe only 2-3 verbal fights break out per semester due to parking frustrations.

    Clubs and Activities

    The clubs are great at Norco College! It's the clubs that keep Norco college spirit up. Theres always events joining all the clubs together bringing Mustang students (our mascot) together.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The Rose Garden is the best place i love to study. It's very peaceful and tranquil. We do our club meetings there too! People gather around this area sometimes to sing for college students and play their instruments.

    What to do for fun

    Join clubs! The clubs at Norco College are very friendly. I've joined the Christian Club, Circle K Club, Anime Club, and Game Arts Club. These people keep Norco college from being just a college, it's fun to be in clubs when you are a college student :) it's my stress reliever and maybe yours.

    Food and Dining

    The Coral (our cafeteria) is very big and college-like. A lot of tables are set out so its common to see people study in the Coral. I really wish they served healthier food though, their food is mainly fast-food like and greasy.. I tend to take my own food also due to the food being expensive there.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms :(

    Academic Rigor

    So far in the last 2 years I've been here I have had great professors. Their teachings were great, explained well and taught well. They offered great feedback and answered my questions without hesitation. They also offered office hours which really helped!

    Tips for prospective students

    Before enrolling into classes check to see if you qualify to have priority registration. Also, its college, not High school so procrastination will hurt you here most likely. Before choosing a class check Ratemyprofessor.com it'll maybe save you from obtaining a bad grade.

    In three sentences

    Norco College is a great Jr. College. The professors here are very nice and tend to have aim for having professor-student relationships. The classes here are great too, might be difficult to get into them at the beginning of college, but once you have more units it becomes easier to get into classes.
