I love Cabrillo College. It has a small, community feel to it while at the same time quite a bit of diversity. The instructors are (mostly) out of this world fantastic. I feel very supportive here at Cabrillo, and there are many wonderful resources. There is free tutoring that you can sign up for in the library, where you schedule sessions that meet weekly. The Math Learning Center (MLC) is a wonderful place to go and seek assistance on assignments, which has always been helpful to me. I took algebra online, and walked away with a 98% in the class because of the support in the MLC. Additionally, the STEM center is wonderful for those in a STEM major. I go there frequently for Chemistry assistance, and love having a community of people to be around that are taking the same type of classes. Everyone there is really helpful, and I love that there is a big couch and kitchen that makes it feel like you are home. I received a free rental textbook this semester because of a program they have that allows students to rent textbooks for free until funds run out. I actually got through this semester without paying for a single book- and I'm taking two STEM classes and an English class!

All in all, Cabrillo is a fantastic value and a high quality education. A+.

Since switching from Blackboard to Canvas for the online courses, navigation and access to online materials has gotten one million times easier. I loved my online classes this semester. Most classes you take will have some element that is online, either posting lecture slides, discussion or assignments. Very easy once you get used to it, and the app for iPhone is great!

In my opinion one of the best community colleges in the state. It is a big and beautiful campus. It looks new and it is well cleaned and maintained. The staff here is great they really care about the students and trying to get them to reach their goals. The counselors are well educated and always help with any questions I have. I sometimes go without an appointment and I get seen fairly quickly. However, I wouldn't recommend not going without an appointment. The STEM and Math Centers have really nice and smart employees. If someone doesn't know the answer to a question it gets passed around and it always gets solved. The only problem you will find at Cabrillo is finding parking during the day. I try to get the earliest classes to avoid any parking issues. By 9 and 10 am you will most likely need to circle the parking garage a couple times to find some parking. After 3pm I would say it dies down and parking is not an issue.
