3 College Junior

Career Services: They give us the knowledge to look into careers and pursue higher education after we meet our goal there.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: My major is Liberal Arts and so far the courses I've been taking have been helpful and I was able to keep up with the school work needed.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Class registration process is easy to do because of the assistance available to the students if needed.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Financial Aid assisting and Admissions/Counseling assisting are beyond helpful, fast and accurate.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: i have only taken one online class at my current college, but overall it was okay

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: in the are of class flexibility i really could not ask for more because there are many classes to choose from, and at many varying times. I have found it very easy to schedule my class to fit around my daily life responsibilities.

3 College Junior

Career Services: the career center is minimal and job prospers service is almost non existent.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: the school i am currently attending is overall ok, but there are some areas that i feel need some major change. In my opinion the counseling service at this school is sub-par and needs a overhaul immediately. Most of the staff here have a bad attitude and don't seem excited about teaching.

3 College Student

Facilities: Most of the students keep to their cliques, but the atmosphere is nice. I enjoy keeping to myself most of the time. I was in a learning community where we went out and presented our projects to other classes in the community. I had a lot of fun doing that.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: I need to pick different teachers, but so far I can willingly say I want to continue attending Peralta. My school has some great teachers, the atmosphere is nice as well. Sometimes there is music and dancing. Sometimes there is community food which is nice. There are a lot of programs that make it possible to have an enjoyable time at school.

Career Services: I haven't been able to check it out.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: Workload is not too bad, I was a little stressed last quarter because of personal family issues, but my professor was extremely attentive and worked out a special program for me. The curriculum is normal from what I see, nothing too different.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: When I first became a student it was a very confusing process. Not a single staff member wanted to put their arm out to help. I asked around and was directed to a group of people who had gone to this school for a while.

3 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: A few classes I have taken I am happy with. A few, especially how much I had paid for them out of my pocket, I felt I deserved more than what I got. I wish I had known how poorly I would be treated before I paid $600 for two classes.

1 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Some quarters certain classes are available, sometimes you need to wait for three more quarters to roll by. It's really frustrating. A two year college is turning into a five year process.

2 College Student

Online Courses: My mathlab courses are hard to follow, and it'll be my third time taking the same math class. I know how to do it, it's the site that will mark you wrong when you're right. I have proof. The teachers are not extremely attentive, when asked a question it may take weeks to get back to you.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: The student center is at the bottom of the library. The counselors office is always flooded with students because there is a lack of counselors. To ask a quick question, you may have to wait 4 hours. There are food trucks that only accept cash, and they're not the best. But there are fairs and flea markets sometimes which is nice.

2 College Student

Campus Resources: There are two computer labs and one is for assessment testing.

3 College Student

Student Body: My classes so far have been filled with outgoing people.

3 College Junior

Student Body: My experience with the general masses are limited, as there is little diversity in the classes I take. My classes are usually all male, all white, or majority Asian. However, discrimination/prejudice is absolutely not tolerated at my school, so that's great.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: If I had to do the college thing over again, I'd research my financial options a lot more. My parents kept things from me preventing me from attending the University I was accepted to after high school, so now I'm here. It's a tad disheartening at times, but I know several professors here are trying to help me transfer as soon as possible so I can start the career I always wanted.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The student center is... bad. The library is slowly improving itself, with new additions to the writing and math labs. Campus activities are lame, then again most of us aren't really proud to be here, since we all aspired to something else, and life circumstances brought us here.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The wireless access is a bagillion times better that connecting to the computers on campus. It's easy to connect to if you are in range, and there are several access points on both campus facilities. The computer lab is a place I rarely go to, because several bad apples make it hard to work there.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I fully understand that the engineering degrees are impacted. But by offering very few, and very specific niche courses only, I feel they leave other engineering students out.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The old campus is... a piece of work to be brutally honest. However, the new science facilities built recent are AMAZING! I try to take as many classes on this campus as I can.
