What Students Are Saying

4.36 Average Rating
by far the most diverse, relaxed campus full of happy, friendly students of all ages. clean, green and exuding student pride everywhere you go. the best choice anyone could ever make!
Dahlton from Jackson, CA
It is the most productive, accepting, safe, and fun environment I have ever known. I gained a surrogate family in the community and all the students there. I feel incredibly fortunate to have met the people (students, faculty, and staff) I have met here and have had the opportunities I've had to mature and expand my understanding.
