3 College Junior

Overall Experience: If I could do it all over, I wouldn't go to Cabrillo. I may have saved some money, earned a few credits, but it wasn't worth it in the end. I would have been better off transferring straight out of high school to a four-year university. Cabrillo is a great school, it's just not the school for me. I feel like I learned a few things, but not nearly as many things as I should have. The fact that it's practically impossible to get into the classes you need makes school feel like a joke and is extremely frustrating.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: This one is somewhere between "it's great" and "it's okay". I have had some very interesting classes with incredible, even inspiring, teachers. I have also had my share of teachers who make me feel like I just wasted an hour or more of my life on something I could have better taught myself using Google search. The class sizes are frequently too large which is a shame. There are a lot of classes offered so there is luckily a lot of variety there. Each class style is unique and depends on the professor, I've had some I can't stand and some I wished all my teachers shared.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am not positive if we have a career center or anything along those lines. A degree from Cabrillo really doesn't mean much, everyone goes there, but few actually leave with a degree it seems. I don't see recruiters around at all, and I have never seen anything about internships or jobs. I could be missing them of course, but I haven't seen them before.

Student Body: Cabrillo's student body is incredibly diverse. Students are of all ages, some are still in high school and some are retirees looking to learn a few things or complete an old degree. Everywhere you look you see students from different backgrounds, different economic standings, different genders, sexualities, political beliefs, religions. There are also students with diverse ethnic backgrounds and identities. Cabrillo is a melting pot, much like the city of Santa Cruz which is nearby. People are rather accepting of one another at Cabrillo, despite most students keeping to themselves.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I do not qualify for financial aid for Cabrillo so I cannot personally rate it's effectiveness or explain the process properly. I have many friends though who rely on it to fund their education and they are so grateful for it, it seems like it's very straightforward and not a difficult process. The fees for Cabrillo are cheap in comparison to many junior colleges and universities. I feel like I am getting my money's worth at Cabrillo College.

Career Services: I have not really ventured into the career center, I'm actually not sure if we have one. There are student job prospects through Cabrillo for students to work on Campus though which is great! But I am not positive about post-Cabrillo job opportunities.

Campus Resources: Cabrillo College has a lot to offer its students no matter what their interests may be. There are an endless number of clubs to join all year long, and if you can't find one you like it's easy to start one of your own. Our library is large and well stocked with books and computers as well as study rooms. The technology in their may be on the older side, but they are upgrading slowly. Two of the most impressive things Cabrillo has to offer is the Math Learning Center & the STEM center. These two centers are dedicated to helping students with math, science, and computers. The best part is the centers are FREE to students and the tutors are fellow Cabrillo students or professors, providing not only an encouraging environment but employment for students as well. There is also a Writing Center that is free, I have personally never been inside though I hear it is a life saver for those who struggle with writing. Cabrillo also has its own football field, track, baseball/softball field, pool, tennis courts, and a huge gymnasium. There is actually even a Gym on campus for those who want to work out. The view from the top of the campus on a clear day, it's on a hill, is gorgeous. You can see straight to the ocean and the mountains behind it. Some students hang around to watch the sun set at the end of the day. Over all, especially for a junior college, Cabrillo is great. The professors, the students, and the school itself are truly something special.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I don't know how to answer this question...

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: My school doesn't offer the major I want which is Fashion Design but it does offer Fiber Arts which something similar. So far I haven't been able to use the facilities for my major, since I have been taking the general classes like math, English, and science, so I am not at the core classes yet.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I like my classes, the professors are great. So far I have only had one professor who I did not like, but other than that my professors have been great. The class registration process is quick and simple. Which is what I enjoy. Also the workload for my classes are reasonable. Never to light or to heavy. I get challenged enough to make things work for me.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: They are all really helpful. I enjoy using the resources. And in general it's all pretty good.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition and financial aid is great for students because it gives those in need of financial help the support they need and those who dont qualify there are some programs like borrow a book program which as long as the student is full time student he/she are eligible to borrow one book for the semester.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Its very hard at times because some classes are not thought there but the campus makes up for it with a great facilities that give students the real deal of the major. The workload is not too much but fun to be part of. The downside to it there are no internships but some job opportunities that show hard work does payoff.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The professors are very informative and helpful with doable workload just don't slack off. The curriculum is very open to meet students needs and requirements. Class registration process is ok but not perfect due to priority enrollment to senior and jr classes freshman have to get salvage what's left. Their isnt really much specail study options besides mesa which is great for math help and there is an English center but not much for other subjects like physics. There clubs to join but im not much involved with that more of a drifter in the beautiful campus.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I came from a very small school with very active teachers with one on one teaching. Here its more like you are on your own and have to ask for help. But for me the coursework is easy enough to where i can understand it myself. They make their office hours available to you which is good cause you can walk in on your free time and ask for help.

Academic Experience: They offer a wide variety of academics and do a good job of keeping class opening and making sure they have enough room. Although they do shut some very important programs down like dental hygiene.

Academic Flexibility: The students usually plan their own schedules and for myself i did so too! Its super easy with the student planning tool o web advisor. Although there are conflicts and codes you much follow before taking another class which can be complicating because it doesn't explain why! Thats why you always want to talk to your counselor before registering.

5 College Freshman

Career Services: My dental hygiene counselor is great! He got my classes planned out for the rest of my time at Cabrillo and really helped me understand what i should be doing and the process to go!

2 College Freshman

Student Body: Not many students reach out and talk to one another. They keep to themselves and go to class. I dont feel like a lot of them are motivated and actually know what they are doing later in life. I guess you could join clubs but i havnt had a very good experience already so im content with just going for academics at the moment and focus!

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I like that they include so many resources with your tuition which is free scantrons during finals!

Woman's Health services- very great because its free birth control and condoms and tests which make it safer.

Tutors are available all the time in the ENglish writing center and Math Lab

Health services can give you free appointments and vaccinations

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have applied for Cal Grants and they were excellent at giving me back my money i paid for my classes very quickly! I have heard a little bit about the Financial Aid and how it is very generous at my school. I do know that there are certain GPAs you must keep up in order to keep your financial aid. But I will be learning more about this department in the Spring 2015 semester!

Online Courses: By being an engineer i will serve my country and family

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had a conversation with an adviser and she was pretty cold and wouldn't listen very well to what I was trying to say.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I wasn't applicable for help since I live with my parent even though she wasn't going to help with my college fees.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: A lot of people have my major as long as they're interested in science or medicine.
