4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are fantastic with only a few bad apples but ask around you can avoid them. It is a wonderful tool to use for saving money with plenty of classes and not a lot of stress for class selection. I am a pre-nursing major and have never had to miss a class because I couldn't get in. Make sure you have a direction if you come, there aren't as many people to hold your hand (don't count on the counselors) so if you don't know what you want to do, take meaningful classes, not ones you can goof off it, it's not worth it.

3 College Junior

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: my academic counselor was so helpful with my education planning. He pointed me in the right direction for my major. the financial aid office was also very helpful. I was able to find my way around the campus very easily.

Student Body: Diversity is great in all aspects

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: The fee waiver pays for my classes which is great financial aid is great but sometimes its just not quite enough to get through a semester as a single parent of two but is very useful easy to get and straight forward

3 College Freshman

Career Services: I've found jobs through job fairs here and it actually looks great on resumes to potential job employers that see I am enrolled in school

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The workload can be a lot for me at times but over all the teachers are great the curriculum is good

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: It's fine it works for me just wish I could feel more unified with the school everything is everywhere

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: You have to know all of your resources and have every thing planned out because some staff lack some important info but over all everything's there you just have to take the time out to find it

5 College Junior

5 College Junior

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: They are for the students

3 College Junior

Online Courses: We have double the work they do in a class room setting

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The staff is very helpful and willing to assist in any way possible

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Homeless at risk is the only one I participate in because I was actually homeless when I started school and the program helps with transportation, food, books, counseling, computers available to use and print

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Workload is on the intense side, but all professors in the math/science departments are aiming to prepare their students for transfer to UC Berkeley. They teach at a top-notch level (with intense levels of homework, to boot), trying to ensure that all of their students understand the material (especially those still enrolled in the class after the drop date ends). Professors are more than welcome to help a struggling student who cares about getting a good grasp on the material. Most grade fairly (at least in the math/science departments).

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: athletic centers (fitness center, etc.) is absolutely fantastic. new fitness building in 2007 or so. new equipment throughout. Library is pretty good, quiet, good wi-fi, good desks and lighting. campus is ugly, however. the old buildings on campus (cloud hall, particularly) are literally falling apart. Other campus buildings are not in nearly as bad of shape and are actually pleasant to take courses in. Nighttime or daytime.

2 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: administration is a pain in the rear. you're really on your own to figure that end of things out. once figured out, easy. until then, an absolute pain.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: the professors make the college 100% worthwhile. public college, so not many services available (cash-strapped CA education system). fantastic professors! many are from UCs or CSUs who, when not teaching there, they teach at CCSF.

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.
