3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The classes are flexible and the profs help you if you really interested and want to know about transferring or at least they give you direction what to do and the right person to go to.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: I heard some of my friends continued their jobs after finished their associated degree, and they pursue higher position because they understand the basic knowledge

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I had my first semester for fall 2015. I took 4 classes, and I had many questions on what I'm actually doing in college. So I went to their office hours, they also reachable through emails. It was not hard to communicate with them. For most of tha general courses, ccsf also offers tutors in library buildinh and they are really helpful. Class and facilities are okay, not so great but was acceptable due to financial crisis that was happening.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They offer lot of workshops and seminar about jobs, careers and internships but lack on promotion, verbally and visualy. There should be an organized tabloid or a information office or something.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I've been to lot of workshops throughout the semester. There are cultural, jobs and internships, tech, student development and many other topics in workshops. They also really encouraging students to go to beteran program, financial aid, and eosps. But the service is somehow not welcoming and inefficient. The procedures are not good.

Architecture dep. is awesome. The profs there are really good at inspiring, helpful, supporting, and give good understanding of the subject that we learn. They teach us how to be professional and discipline.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ccsf has really great architecture department. I was fascinated how the arch profs teach, and inspire us because I was little worried at first. But the promotion and voice from our college are barely out there. Clubs, resource centers, information center and student government are mostly unorganized, but they do offer lots of opportunities once you get to know and talk to people. Professors are great as well.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Classes may fill up quick but the class schedules are very flexible almost all of my friends work and we can all manage to wrk ad go to school full time, which many students can't do that

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I myself have not taken an online course but a friend of mine gave me nothing but good feedback about online courses. There is a lot of tutoring that can be given if you take time to want to learn

3 College Junior

Career Services: At ccsf my metro counselor Chris has informed me about post grad services and in the MUB building at ccsf there is an office for that particular service which I think will be very helpful for me hen I reach that level

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had a great experience with my teachers, although my english teacher could be harsh she was just looking out for all of us and wanted to succeed

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a lot of opportunities at ccsf, in our plaza there is a bunch of students with scholarships, jobs, tutoring, volunteering and many more. it's been helpful for me and I hope others find it as help as I did

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My academic experience overall was really good, I learned a lot of reading skills and how to stay organized and how to stay healthy

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My first semester at ccsf was great the teachers were very helpful, my schedule was very flexible, I can choose my own schedule which fit me for my job

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When you research the teachers you take it seriously helps you out so that you're aware of what you're getting into and an idea of what to expect. Class sizes are good for the most part. Class options are somehat limited due to CCSF's accreditation and impact issues...all of that stuff has taken a toll on classes offered to us. That really sucks honestly.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Not too much into on this but people who go to CCSF always represent.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Takes up quite some time when you're major is quite intense, but worth taking at CCSF considering the price compared to UC/CSU.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some stuff is outdated but the students who are actively involved in CCSF really care about it. You can feel the passion of some teachers in their teaching; that's one of the best parts of this school. Sometimes you get lucky and have a teacher who loves teaching their subject. Join a club you are really interested in. You will find out great information and meet some awesome people!

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: When I first started attending the school I had some issues with admissions & records, but after all of that everything has been relatively simple & straightforward. Most of the employees on campus have been very caring & helpful. As far as classes, there has been ease in signing up for classes, however, the budget cuts on the school have made it hard to have access to necessary classes for my major. I also happen to live within walking distance of the school which makes it really convenient for me to be more dedicated to my studies & spend more time with fellow classmates to form study groups for the success in our studies.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teachers I have had are not only teaching the subjects, but they are actively out there in the field working in the community & staying involved. Which is very inspiring & helps me respect what they teach. All of the teachers I have had are also very compassionate & understanding of the demographic of their students. They understand if certain things like text books are hard to acquire & they make the information accessible as best as they can & let their students know of the resources available to their students. They also understand that life happens & have been flexible with assignments.

I am very grateful for the teachers I have had at CCSF so far.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Again, there are a plethora of resource centers on campus that provide tons of resources for everything you could possibly need.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am a music major & due to budget cuts a lot of the classes I need to transfer to a 4 year are dwindling before my very eyes. When students go to sign up for classes we have to choose a major every time. Music used to be an option, but it's not anymore. I have had to put a different major down. It is a little disappointing that the school system has decided that music is not a valuable major to have when music happens to be the most valuable to mankind.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Words cannot begin to paint you a picture of how dedicated & inspiring the professors are at this school. Other staff members on campus are equally helpful & genuinely want to help you succeed. There are so many resource centers that provide helpful services throughout the semester. You may never want to leave campus!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's giving me the education I need at the right price

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I can work my classes around my work schedule

5 College Senior

Online Courses: I take an online class at least once a semester

As a community college, City College of San Francisco offers a wide variety of courses, ranging from academically-focused classes to more hands-on, vocational classes. Because of the variety of courses offered, City College has a very eclectic student body. It is not rare to find fresh high school graduates sitting in the same class as retirees. But the difference is not simply one of age; there are also students that come from many countries from around the world. 

For many, City College is a place of transition, which gives the school a certain energy. Like most higher learning institutions, what you want and how much you want to get out of your stay at City College depends entirely on your input. What City College offers is a broad and affordable education. The instructors are passionate about their subjects and care deeply about the success and development of their students. Classes are smaller at City College than at larger, more established universities, meaning that students get to know each other on a more personal basis, as do instructors and students. Many City College students transfer to well-established, four-year universities, and many others go on to do greater things for themselves and their communities.
