Butte College is a great institution for students who may not know what their intended degree major will be. Butte College offers a great student services center where tutoring and work space is abundant. I'm very happy to have studied at butte due to the knowledge that is available at such low cost.
Tips for prospective students
Butte College is one of two colleges located in Chico California which gives Chico the small college town feeling. Help is always available for students who may not excel academically
Academic Rigor
Many courses offered at Butte College are indeed difficult (ex. Calculus, Microbiology, Physics). Although the courses may be very rigorous, tutoring is available for every subject at Butte.
Dorm Life
Chico California is known to be a college city. Dorm life is definitely what is expected of a small college town. With surrounding mountain ranges and the sacramento river near by, Butte college is close enough for every form of extracurricular activities.
Food and Dining
Butte college has a great cafeteria with varying ethnic food choices. My only complaint would be the lack of seating due to the excessive students who eat while they have the chance.

This is a great school to prepare to transfer to a University. They have a broad selection of courses but you need to be on top of your registration in order to get the classes you want. This school is excellent for getting your GE classes and has transfer plans with most CA Universities.
Tips for prospective students
Definitely see a counselor and make sure to enroll and register as soon as you can.
Academic Rigor
This college is all about a higher learning. It is a great school and is very flexible with classes that fit everyone.
Dorm Life
I don't know much about dorm life but there is a wide variety of students attending Butte so there is a place for everyone.
Food and Dining
The on campus cafeteria serves a large variety food and Chico has almost every type of restaurant you could ask for.
What to do for fun
Chico is right down the road from the main campus and has tons to do on your off days. They have a huge beautiful park that runs through the whole town and a very happening downtown scene.
Bang for the buck
Excellent education for nothing near the price at a University.

Great for everyone; young and old.
Campus Safety
There are on campus police and security. In the time I have been here, I have not even heard of any crime. The school will provide information about crime rates on campus if you want to know.
