5 College Junior

Student Body: Love that there is a huge diversity on campus and that bring cultural knowledge from all over the globe together.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Students typically go to class and then go to work or go home. The student body is fairly diverse, you can see just about any type of person there, from old to young. Keep in mind that this would not be the school for someone expecting to have a campus social life.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: You will make friends at this school. I'm not a very social person but I ended up making a few new friends anyway because City College of San Francisco ,focuses heavily on teamwork, esp. when it comes to projects. And the Assisting Learning Center suggests that students study in groups when attending tutoring sessions or workshops

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.

5 College Senior

Student Body: Super diverse, and teachers encourage people to be thoughtful and inclusive when sharing in class. Feels like a safe place

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

It is hard to describe the average student at City College of San Francisco because there simply isn't a single average type! There is a large group of high school graduates who are waiting to transfer to four-year colleges, but there is an equally large group of students who are in transition, either linguistically and culturally as new immigrants learning English, or professionally as people reconfiguring their career paths. Other types of students include retirees taking classes for enrichment and university graduates taking courses in preparation for their master's degree application. You can find people of every ethnicity, culture, and political leaning. The list is endless, and almost everyone at City College has a story.  

A large number of students at City College are also underprivileged. There are full-time working students, single mothers, and students who have not been to school in more than 20 years. There is also a significant number of veterans at City College. In a city that boasts of its multicultural and liberal heritage, City College of San Francisco is a very interesting cross section, bringing people from diverse backgrounds together and giving them a common bond for intellectual, cultural, and interpersonal exchange.
