they have a lot of resources that can be used. That is just like any other school ,so its nothing major
Despite many of the face to face disappointments with administrators, counselors and financial aid staff members, I would still come back to this campus. Unlike, Santa Monica College, WLA, Long Beach City or El Camino, it's not a very large campus, parking is a breeze and you can actually get into a class even if it is full. You can literally roll out of bed and be in class 2 minutes before it starts or get there on the dot without any hassles. Also, unlike the other nearby colleges, there is not a big emphasis on competitiveness, which is a good thing. You are only competing with yourself and therefore, you can concentrate more on what you are doing. I have been to all four of the colleges I mentioned above and while they are modern, innovate technically and student wise, they are inconvenient and put unneeded pressure on the student to transfer to make their school number one. Harbor lets the student go at their own pace and I appreciate that.
Not much of a campus life or social scene. Students who go here are mostly here to get in and out and get on with their educational goals. The football team, nursing and theater seem to be the big thing and those are in a world of their own. The best part about this campus is the parking, easy in and out, little to no traffic or gridlock, the selection of classes, the ease of getting into a full class and the ongoing renovation of the campus.
This campus used to be really run-down. They have since built completely new wings, library, student services building and revamped the entire campus. Parking is great! I don't know another campus in the South Bay/Los Angeles area where you can literally park in front of your class and walk a few steps to the door. Virtually no gridlock and even though you are suppose to pay to park at the lot across the street and in the structure, they never check (they are low on security funds to do that). The newer buildings are only a few years old, the oldest being 3 years and the newest a few months old), they are mostly clean and crisp and support a proper learning environment. The current student center is 50 year old building that needs to be torn down because there is little to no lighting, a musty smell circa 1966 and vintage furniture, entertainment and office equipment. I heard they were going to build a new student center but no date given. The athletic center is small but brand spanking new and clean. Though, the hours are very limited.
Out of all the local community colleges I have attended, this one is the worst when it comes to printing and computer labs. The computers are antiquated, the computer lab is in a sweat box with little to no air conditioning in the summer. You know how hot a room with 30 computers get in the dead of summer? The printing station is a joke with hand written signs about how much to put and when to put the money in. This will be taken care of when the new library opens up next week. So, thankfully this will not be a problem any longer.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
