4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I love the school , it's such a beautiful campus. It's the staff and faculty that make the school worth attending! Without their kindness, support knowledge in their field and passion for they're career the school would be loser by now!

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The nursing prerequisites and program are impacted and difficult to get into. There are many science classes that most people fail or barley pass.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: It offers many different options of programs and transfer programs. Registration was easy and informative.

College Junior

Career Services: I have not used these resources yet

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: People are helpful but, the classes fill up quickly.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love city college becauseof it's beautiful campus with amazing views of San Francisco, the bay, and ocean. It is easily accessable by public transportation and bart. It has a diverse student body from all over the globe. I great college experience.

2 College Junior

Facilities: The school keeps erecting new campuses, but should really focus on maintaining the ones they have. The library is ok, but gloomy, and there aren't a lot of study spaces on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: There are many resources on campus. The library is a great source, and the Learning Assistance Center has free tutoring for many major subjects.

College Junior

Online Courses: I haven't taken any online classes at City College.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I took a number of years off after High School to pursue other passions, and when I was ready to jump back into academia I had a bit of catching up to do. City College has been an invaluable place to hone my study and writing skills while preparing to transfer to a four year institution for my degree.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It can be hard to get the classes you want when you first start. The gen ed classes are pretty flexible, so take what you can until you have more priority with registering. See a counselor to make a plan for your goals!

2 College Junior

Student Body: Many students are here because they don't know what they want to do. This can drag down the class over all. As you get into more specific classes, it gets a little better and your classmates are more dedicated to learning.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: For what you pay, you get a lot. Many of the teachers are top notch, it's a smart way to cut down on debt while you pursue your degree.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am a Math major. There are some opportunities for scholarships and help, but not a ton. The school does provide a free tutor lab with math tutors.

3 College Junior

Career Services: This is a community college, so the alumni network is not as strong as it would be at a 4 year college.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It takes way to long to receive and a hassle

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've learned a lot and enjoyed the experience.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I find it easier to do my work online rather than paper form

3 College Senior

Career Services: As for networking , I haven't found anything to do with my major but I meet a passionate counselor named Mrs.Robert Clark

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Mt academic experience has been lucky in this school. I have been blessed with the best professors. My math professor is the head math professor and really wants me to pass. There are some teachers who stumbled across who have not helped me what so ever.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm majoring in Social work, I've always been a fan of helping people, I want to provide resources to families who aren't able to find them . I'm hoping to find an internship soon.

3 College Senior

Facilities: The faculty are the best in the world. Some of them really want you to pass and actually learn something when you get out. There are students here that care about the school. Although, I do wish it was more of a community environment. Everybody is usually to them selves ,not willing to meet new people.

College Senior

Career Services: I am going to transfer, so I'm not using the career center.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wish that I was given more information about transferring/IGETC/academic info. We had plenty of people interrupt our classes to talk about rallies and protests and clubs, but I didn't understand financial aid, transfer programs, etc. I didn't know how to use the academic resources, so I ended up doing everything myself. It would have been nice to have more emphasis on making sure that students knew about these things.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I really had to seek out help if I wanted it, so I figured out the IGETC and did it myself. Some faculty gave somewhat unknowledgeable responses to my questions.

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.
