I was a full-time COSMETOLOGY student (day class)Quite BrightArt & Design Department
I was a full-time COSMETOLOGY student (day class) at Saddleback Beauty Academy (off-campus) with SCC. I finished school a while ago. While I had a good experience with my classmates and teachers I had a really dissapointing experience with Miss Kayla (owner) since the beginning and heard more horror stories from new students and my formal classmates.

From, what it looked like, black mole on the ceiling, to being close to not get enough points by the end of the graduation date and the blame put on the students (not the case at all), to trash bins being full by the end of the day class and kept that way for night class, and not have enough supplies to do services. I can list a ton of things that weren't properly organized and executed. We paid a lot of money, we had jobs outside school and they didn't even cared. Not even SCC!!!!

It was frequent to hear students complaint about the office and saying that they were still there only to graduate and to finally leave school. We lost motivation and im pretty sure teachers did too. It?s sad that they made us feel that way.

And if we didn't like something, the only solution they would bring to the table was to clock-out and leave. Unsettling!!!!! It was a fight for power between them and us.

The students carry the school on their shoulders. Teachers are a BIG support. I wish the owners were the same way. I wish they gave good tools to the teachers and students to use properly and learn so much more things in a better way.

Excellent teachers! My drama professor was from Yale, andQuite BrightChemistry
Excellent teachers! My drama professor was from Yale, and was very helpful as an industry insider. My video & film professor was likewise an accomplished professional. I had seen both of them on TV before! I also had great professors in English, Math, Art, and History. Most Saddleback professors also teach at UC Irvine, Cal State Fullerton, or Cal State Long Beach.

The newly built, modern Library and Student Center is awesome. The other buildings are older, but not bad. The campus is pretty large and hilly, which affords beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. Very safe - Mission Viejo ranks as the number 2 safest city in the entire nation.

I wish the college would build some dorms on campus. There is an apartment complex sandwiched between the campus and the Mission Viejo mall, which draws students from as far as Alaska.

Sports is a big draw. Saddleback has produced its share of Pro athletes. The curriculum is very comprehensive. The State of California could easily convert this campus into another UC, and they should! UC Saddleback. With the extensive curriculum and excellent professors, students would not have to transfer to Los Angeles or Northern Orange County area.
