4 College Junior

Facilities: There is no student center since construction started. Most students are forced to eat outside because buildings don't allow food. There is a bookstore and a Subway sandwich shop to eat at. There are a few lawns but they're generally underpopulated. People with allergies should make sure they have the needed allergy shots due to the high amount of pollen.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The people are generally civil. The atmosphere isn't one that I'd want to be in for an extended period of time. This is a good school to redeem oneself after a bad high school record. The campus used to be very nice but ever since construction started, it's difficult to get around and it's become a very unattractive.

4 College Junior

Student Body: Mostly minorities, democratic, low and middle class. I've never heard racist, sexist, or homophobic comments on campus. There is a noticeable Muslim population.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Most classes have good professors and comprehensible coursework. Class registration is relatively easy and online-based.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The workload can be heavy, but if a person is self-motivated, they can work through it.

College Junior

Online Courses: I've never taken an online course

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Campus events are difficult to find but I've never been to a bad one. The library has extensive study rooms and informative books as well as books to read for fun. The campus is currently under construction and navigating from one building to another can be a hassle. The gym, tennis courts, swimming pool, track and football stadium, and basketball courts are under great condition. I've seen a lot of baseball players lingering around the athletic area but I've never seen the baseball field or practice area.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The wi-fi is easy to connect to but for school visitors, it can be hard to find a log-on username and password. In some buildings, the wi-fi might drop but it's generally reliable. Printing costs about 11 cents per page in black and white but 35 cents for color. Printing can be complicated for someone who isn't used to the printing system but it's simple after the first time one prints. Sometimes computers in the library are hard to access but in the Physical science lab, computers are almost always available. In the Computer labs, there is always a surplus of computers but they require enrollment in certain classes.

College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I attend for free under Middle College High School. There is a $6 semester fee that is easy to pay but can be inconvenient.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It's very easy to get into a class even if you didn't register by the due date. As long as you show up at the first class, there will probably be a spot for you. Most classes are Monday-Thursday during mornings and afternoons.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I currently have a job with the SciMath department as a tutor for Chemistry. It pays a bit higher than minimum wage. Some teachers will alert you to career and internship opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Getting my education, got a education plan in my major. Currently in the nursing program.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Heard it was easy to use but classes in the classroom are more towards my preferences.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Under construction so some facilities and areas of campus might be limited until 2016

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Steady workload, learn what we need, and professors show interest in teaching the students.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Only second semester but so far great.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: Some average help and guidance

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Part of the students are high schoolers in a gateway to college program, so some immaturity still lingers around the campus.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Many classes to take, students control their schedule.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Cheap classes, wide range of academics, and many opportunities

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's all right, but could be worse I guess. So there.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: It's all right, but could be worse I guess. So there.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: It's all right, but could be worse I guess. So there.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: It's all right, but could be worse I guess. So there.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: They offer a decent amount of resources for the student.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Contra Costa College has helped a lot of students become mature and responsible adults. Although a lot of students chose to go here because it seemed like the easiest, least stressful way to continue their education, this college has been a perfect place for many. Many students would choose this college all over again, if they had to go back.

Every faculty member at CCC tries to help and prepare students for their futures. Even the students here are helpful, and they like to see each other succeed. For example, classmates are always  interested in knowing how well their friends did on an exam, and they encourage better performance. They try to help, even if it's by offering to have group study sessions together. 

The thing that stands out about this school is that it's pretty small, so you don't feel alienated in it. It's very easy to get to know students and make friends. It's also very easy to see your professors up close. As a result, they will always do what they can to help you leave their course knowing something. This helps students because the more they are comfortable in their school's environment, the harder they're going to try to succeed.
