    Did you ever finish? I am going there in a few years, currently at PCC taking engineering courses.

    Went 3 years and basically got through all the general ed stuff that was required for the harder core engineering classes but never finished it out. Got real burnt out after the 3 years and failing my last physics class 2 times(C's both times, but not good enough for the engineering dept.). For some reason I just couldnt grasp the class but did well in the others I was taking.
    Teachers were all good aside from a couple of em but thats to be expected everywhere I'd say. Basically the ones I didnt like did random stuff like assign homework from what the previous days lecture... online... in the morning before your afternoon class. And since I had a pretty full load of classes with only a hour gap for a lunch break, I wasnt able to complete them and ended up missing credit on those assignments. Other than that, all the teachers were pretty good, and always there for you to come into their office and ask questions- do that, it helps. ;)
    The school, being mostly engineering and medical, had a lot of computer guys that were pretty stereotypical computer nerd but the medical fields attracted a decent amount of girls to the school. If you want to meet girls, take a biology class or something related to the medical field because the engineering classes can be a sausage fest. :laugh:
    Overall I liked the school. Klamath Falls is less to be desired as a city, but overall its not too bad a place to live a few years.
    And if you like to have any life outside school, take 13-15 credits a term otherwise you'll be spending all your time studying and completing class projects which will probably get old quick unless you're super focused and motivated.

    You should go back and finish up. One of my friends is a civil engineer. She failed vector calc like 3 times before she even passed, but stuck with it anyways. Engineering takes a lot of hard work and commitment.
