4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The OS is modern and equipment works.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: More funding for library resources, and computer labs would be ideal. Instead, much of the equipment is outdated, and there are limited quiet study areas, since they are currently on a first come first serve basis. included additional study areas with extended hours, as well as more access to campus resources would be very helpful to the student body. However, there are currently numerous campus activities, which are a great way to get involved in the community.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: More printing places on campus would be helpful, especially for students who don't have access to English writing labs. Internet speed and access on campus are pretty fast and useful. However, I would suggest more computer outlets in the study areas, because those are extremely limited.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Some of the buildings are a little old looking but there is evidence they are trying to make it more modern and offer lots of activities and clubs

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Wireless is not always reliable

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Its bad that international students are charged so much more than resident students, particularly if you have been living in the City for 2 years but because I am on an F1 Visa I am charged 3 times more

4 College Senior

Career Services: Not had much interaction so far but from the conversations I have had they have been helpful

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: As I already mentioned, the professionally and passion of the teachers is one of the highlights. It not only makes the classes interesting but they are able to make their students motivated as well (I wish that students participated more in class...). I have really enjoyed my experience as I have made a lot of great connections and learned quite a lot.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: All the professors that I had are great professionals. Class registration has always been smooth even when traveling abroad. workload varies depending on the courses.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I wish I would have had the time to focus more on psychology related courses. In order to fulfill the GE and the major requirements to transfer I haven't had time to explore other interesting areas of psychology.

4 College Senior

Facilities: What I love about CCSF is that it provides education suited for everyones needs. As a tutor I had young students preparing to transfer to a university, elderly people that wanted to learn something new, or students that wanted to complement their BA education with extra classes. Education is a necessary tool for the masses and CCSF is trying its best to provide it.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have been very lucky throughout the 5 semesters that I have been at CCSF. I have always been able to choose the classes and teachers that I wanted. There is a lot of information about UC and CSU transferrable courses which makes it easier to create an efficient academic plan.

3 College Senior

Student Body: Students come from very diverse backgrounds in all aspects.

College Senior

Career Services: I haven't used any services provided by the career center, yet.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: I don't have much experiences with American colleges. I like CCSF, is small, cozy, and provides all the services that I need. The wellness center is new and in great condition. The library offers an ok book selection from multiple topics. A new recently opened cafe provides great food and nice atmosphere.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

As a community college, City College of San Francisco offers a wide variety of courses, ranging from academically-focused classes to more hands-on, vocational classes. Because of the variety of courses offered, City College has a very eclectic student body. It is not rare to find fresh high school graduates sitting in the same class as retirees. But the difference is not simply one of age; there are also students that come from many countries from around the world. 

For many, City College is a place of transition, which gives the school a certain energy. Like most higher learning institutions, what you want and how much you want to get out of your stay at City College depends entirely on your input. What City College offers is a broad and affordable education. The instructors are passionate about their subjects and care deeply about the success and development of their students. Classes are smaller at City College than at larger, more established universities, meaning that students get to know each other on a more personal basis, as do instructors and students. Many City College students transfer to well-established, four-year universities, and many others go on to do greater things for themselves and their communities.
