5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't been back to school since 2003. The professors made my returning to school experience great. they work with you if you if you talk to them. There office hours are great and helpful.

I also like the lab had free tutors with writing and math. Cerritos college acts as if its a full university. Great school

Online Courses: My online courses were very easy to follow through with. Checking my syllabus, emails, and agenda were important in helping me stay on track to make sure I didn't forget my homework for my online classes. Only one of my online classes required that some quizzes be taken on campus. The workload was very manageable for me since each class was set up similarly: homework, quizzes, and tests.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school offers a great selection of courses. I took 3 online courses and 2 off campus. My online classes were very engaging and easy to stay on task. My classes on campus had a small teacher to student ratio, making the student and teacher interactions more easy. My professors were pretty helpful and almost always available for office hours.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Getting into this school was very easy. I applied online and the process was very quick and easy and I got accepted the next day. I must say that the quality of the career center/ services is not that great. My first week of school I was sent back and forth between the financial aid office and the card company the school uses for financial aid. It took over a month before they caught on that the issue was simply because they never mailed out my financial aid, and I had to pay a fee for them to send it again.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Taking Calculus 2 at this school made me think a lot about my major, and made me even think about switching my major to math. The workload is a lot and can be overwhelming but I love the challenge.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I transferred to Cerritos College for Spring 2016 and I can say that my semester here has been enjoyable. I am glad I was able to get the classes I wanted without complications given that I transferred a little late.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of classes offered are actually great, you have many to choose from. The frustration I have is not having a lot of courses offered for that certain subject so it gets filled fast and its something I need. Since I don't have priority registration its hard for me to get those classes and on top of that, not many classes are offered or opened for that subject. Also not only that, the professors are bad at teaching from what I read on ratemyprfessors.com. That makes it an even more reason not to take the class because you don't know if you'll actually learn or if you want to drop it because you don't understand a thing. This is only for a certain subject that isn't offering a lit of classes nor the best professor in it which is biology and chemistry.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Having online courses is the best way for people who can't always come to class in person because of personal reasons. The difference about coming to class in person and doing work online is the self study and teaching yourself from what the professor posted online rather then having the professor teach you in person. It really depends how hard and how easy the online courses are in what you chose to take online. Some subjects are easy to take online and some are meant to be taught in person. The workload of assignments online are average, its not too little and not too much. The professor replies pretty quickly online and they also have office hours if you want to meet them in person. A professor I had that I was taking online had two version of how things are taught. For example, there's the word version which is just PDF or writings about what you're learning for that week and then there's a video of him lecturing and teaching about the topic you're goina learn as if you're there in the classroom. I don't know if every professor does that for the online course, but this is also a great way for students to choose how they want to be taught.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: The career center provides computers for job searching, flyers, and folders of many jobs that are offering. They also help build resume and practice job interviews.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have met the best professors at Cerritos college who are always willing to help me and answering all the questions I asked. Most of the time I'm always emailing the professors and they reply right away, either on the same day or by the next day, never later than that. They also offer office hours which is a great way for students to meet up with the professor out of class to talk one on one. So far in all the classes I've been in, the class sizes are acceptable and the class styles are alright. I wish that there were more courses offered though because many classes get filled fast or there's not a lot of classes offered for that subject. Compared to the classes offered here and classes offered at Long Beach City College, I wouldn't say it's even half the classes. If I could change some things I would put winter session in Cerritos college because its a great way for students who are in need of finishing their GE's and planning to transfer to take advantage of. They can finish faster if winter session is added. Even though summer school has two session, it sucks because right after spring ended, the first session of summer school starts the week after and when the first session ends, the second session of summer starts right after, and when the second session ends, fall starts. There is no break at all for the students who decided to take summer school. Another downsized of this is that almost all the classes are 3 - 4 hrs long which is already a class that's from Monday - Thursday because its summer school. I believe the class doesn't need to be that long when you have the class 4 days a week. If winter session were to be added, we wouldn't need 2 summer session.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All information and resources are always being put out there from flyers to banners, news on the Cerritos college website and from professors mentioning what's offered.

Overall Experience: Before going to Cerritos College I went to Long Beach City College and the differences was the counselors I had at Cerritos College were more helpful than at LBCC. I'm not saying all the counselors at LBCC are bad, but the one I was with didn't help at all. Also, the professors that I had at Cerritos College seems to care about you a lot more than the professors I had at LBCC. For example, whenever I had questions and need help, I would email he professor and they reply right away answering all my questions, but when it comes to the professors I had at LBCC they take a very long time to reply which would already be too late by then when I needed help. There was also one professor who even gave out his phone number and let's you text him whenever you need help and have any questions. At the time I wasn't able to purchase his textbook due to financial issue so he let me borrow his textbook so that I can have the resources I need to pass the class. That is a great professor who actually helps a student in need and I believe we all need someone like him because there are some circumstances where we're not getting Financial Aid, doesn't have a job, and doesn't get any help from the parent so it's hard to get textbooks and any materials that we need to pass a class. He makes a great example of a professor by offering me to borrow the textbook so I can pass the class. Now what I would recommend to Cerritos college is to build a parking structure instead of just having so many parking lot. It would give make it so much easier and create more space for Cerritos college to have more building and have more classes. The downside of Cerritos college compared to LBCC is the parking structure and not having a lot of classes to offer.

Online Courses: there needs to be improvements on course availability

5 College Junior

Career Services: i want to work hard

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Being that I was transferring in my another community college out of state, my experience overall was pretty smooth. I was able to have everything complete prior to arrival.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: My overall experience was very little to none. Most of my course were in class instructions. The only online experience I've encountered was the submission of work to my instructors.

3 College Junior

Career Services: So far it's still a work in progress. The alumni network is great overall from what I have experienced.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been great. The professors and advisors all worked with me in getting into classes I really needed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've really didn't have much involvement in or for this area. There were times when our options were discussed in class in my major field. As far as the alumni network I found this to be great, as it was a former alumni who suggested and recommended me to attend this college. He even went out of his way to schedule a meeting with the head football coach to introduce me personally. Which I truly believe help me to prove myself on the field.
