This a great school especially if you are looking to experience new things and meet different people. The professors support the students greatly and the counselors easily will help you make your transition from high school into college. The only drawback is that we don't have a cafeteria, it is the smallest campus out of all the Peralta colleges, you know? Nearby restaurants can be pricey because of school being located in the heart of downtown and if you're on a budget as well. Definitely if the campus were just a little bit bigger with a cafeteria, it'd be a lot easier for students!

I'm majoring in the STEM field and I'm not sure how close it is to the real world but it feels somewhat isolating and discouraging because of lack of minorities. It's mostly male dominated but I prefer to have female friends to talk to in class since I get along with them better and there's no pressure of dating or feeling intimidated or disrespected. However, as a minority I find that the few women in my class don't want to be associated with me, surprisingly some of my male classmates were more friendly and willing to have a study women. Also the older students are more friendly compared to my peers.

Only a few of my math and science professors were terrible but I found out the hard way despite warnings from peers and rating of those professors online. One seemed slightly racist and the other couldn't teach and would have tests that didn't relate to their lectures!

I've had no problems! I like the counselors too because they suggest which class to take...well if you have a regular counselor they'll suggest it more personally to cater to your personality. For example, mine suggested a interpersonal communications course because she knew that I was shy and didn't want to talk much in front of the class as for a public speaking communications course.
