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 Instead, much of the equipment is outdated, and there are limited quiet study areas, since they are currently on a first come first serve basis.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.

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

Campus Resources: Wireless is not always reliable

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.

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.
