2 College Junior

Campus Resources: The brand new Wellness Center and MUB are generally great examples how college facilities should be built when properly funded. Due to financial mismanagement, the rest of the campus is in desperate need of modernization and repairs. You can expect to find broken and closed bathrooms, along with a lack of water on certain days. In addition to no AC or heat and poor lighting and seating in classrooms. Most buildings have holes in the walls, peeling paint, neglected or broken equipment.. etc.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I have been going to this school for 2 years and I have not yet found a teacher that I hated. Each teacher is well versed in the subject they're teaching and are very friendly and very eager to help.

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

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.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: I think the campus is good. Athletic centers are awesome, but science supplies seem pretty old.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

City College offers a variety of student support resources. Although the library on the main Ocean campus does not boast of an extensive collection, it is nonetheless a valuable source of information, offering periodicals, books, textbooks, computers, and printers. The staff is supportive, friendly, and generally helpful, unless they are overwhelmed during the peak periods right before midterms and finals. Along with the library, the Learning Assistance Center is another excellent resource where students can get help from student tutors on a variety of subjects. Other resources that cater to students include the EOPS program (Extended Opportunity Program and Services), the APASS program that helps Asian Pacific American students, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), and the WSP (Writing Success Project). CCSF also has a Veterans Educational Benefits Office that offers counseling services and other academic support to veterans. 

Many of the campus resources not only enhance academic performance, but they also foster "community." However, the campus itself is pretty old and rundown, and renovations usually come very slowly. With the recent state budget cut on education, renovations and new facilities seem unlikely in the near future. Many of the campus support programs have also been cut due to lack of funding. It is not rare to see a long line of students waiting for help at the understaffed Learning Assistance Center. Most students agree that more still needs to be done to make services and resources more accessible to the student body.

Did You Know?
When getting the required textbooks for classes, students at City College have an additional option beyond buying books secondhand or borrowing them for a small fee from online book loan sites. Students at City College can borrow textbooks for free through the AS Book Loan program. They can check out the textbook at the beginning of the semester and return it at the end for free. The only problem is that not all textbooks are available, and there is sometimes a three- or four-hour wait in line.
