Cerro Coso is a good two year school. The Professors in the most part are very genuine and care about teaching and our education. Cerro Coso has an amazing welding program with wonderful professors. All the professor have done welding as a profession and have vast knowledge and skills. The classes at Cerro Coso are small, allowing the professor to interact more with the students. Unforanalty since it is a small college the advanced classes are only offered once a year, however on the good note, not many people take them so they don't fill up quickly. I have never had a problem getting into a class due to too many people signing up for them.

My overall experience at Cerro Coso Community School is great. I think it is a school that feels very welcoming and is easy to adjust to. I am very excited that I choose to stay in Mammoth and attend Cerro Coso mainly because personally I do not think I would have easily adjusted to a larger school and area. I have appreciated the help my professors and school have provided!

I have always been more of a hands on learner. Learning in the traditional classroom is ideal in my opinion. I wouldn't suggest taking hard courses online unless you're completely dedicated. The first online course I attempted I dropped, not having a teacher to ask questions right away is a big disadvantage in my eyes. Yes you can email them, but there's something about being in the classroom, and having someone explain to you how to figure out a math problem, or the process of ATP. I have had the privilege of taking online courses, however I acknowledged that I never was able to get more than a C; versus the classroom which I always get A's and B's. Online classes also allow procrastination, which isn't good for any college student. I personally prefer classroom experience any day over online classes! Having someone that cares about your education, a teacher, and share their passion on a particular subject, English, math, with you, a student, can help a student identify what they themselves are into as well.
