Overall Rating

I really love that my school goes through the effort to show the students the resources available so that it really becomes helpful. Before this semester, I didn't know the student resource center offered private free tutoring.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

I live in Chico CA, and Butte College is about 30 minutes away in Oroville Ca. Fortunately, there is an extension that houses most of the GE courses in Chico about 10 minutes from my house which makes things much easier. Overall the campus is clean and well maintained and the programs offered are vast for a community college.
