If your planning on taking lots of MathQuite BrightUndecided
If your planning on taking lots of Math Classes (Alegebra, Geometry, Trig, Calculus, etc..) avoid the following teachers;

Sanchez: Has an extremely unfair grading system. Takes a bunch of points off for very small mistakes on exams & quizzes. If your answers is right & your work is wrong, the whole thing is wrong / if you answer is wrong & your work is right, the whole thing is wrong too!!! Ridiculously Outrageous!!!

Wang: Very unpatient with students. Gets angry right away for no apparent reason if students have questions, etc... Exams are very hard & most of the class barely got above 80% on her exams.other teacher: Same unfair grading system as sanchez!!! Takes a bunch of points off for steps that are missing or thinks that should be there. If your missing like an exponent or value, etc... takes a bunch of points off for that too!!!

Question
Sac City is the nicest campus in theBrightSociology
Sac City is the nicest campus in the Sacramento area. It is also the oldest campus (1916) and there is a sense of history. I transferred here from the University of Nevada Reno and chose to attend Sac City for two reasons. The first reason was that I found Sac State's campus to be utterly repulsive and filled with buildings from the soulless architectural era of the 1970's. Reason two is that SCC is closer to the downtown area than Sac State.Sacramento City College is in one of Sacramento's most historic and desirable neighborhoods, Land Park. The 3-mile radius park is right across the street. For your Anthropology courses you even get to walk to the zoo! There is a sense of community and an urban feel on the campus. This is also the only Campus in the entire Sacramento Metro region that has a light rail station. The people here are friendly, open-minded and if you fit this description then you will have a great experience at SCC.

Question
When looking at these reviews, you have toQuite BrightSociology
When looking at these reviews, you have to keep in mind that SCC is a community college, so it can't be easily compared to four-year insitutions. Students here pay only $20 per unit (as of Fall 2007), but the education is still very good.

The faculty at SCC are great, in general. Many of them have Ph.D.'s from top universities, but they are incredibly down to earth. They're teaching at a community college because they care about students, not their own salary or research.The social life is admittedly much less active than you might find at a university, but SCC is working against factors most schools aren't: many of our students only take one or two classes, live far from campus, are juggling school with work and a family, or only take classes at night. Basically, if you're willing to make a little bit of effort to get involved in campus life, you'll be welcomed and you'll meet a lot of fantastic people.
