Overall Experience: I was only at CCSF for three semesters and I learned a lot from not being in school for about a year. It made me realize how much I loved going to school and to learn.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The speech teachers were beyond excellent. They understood that speaking in front of people could be nerve-wrecking, but they gave a lot of advice and what to do when our nerves get the best of us.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Community colleges don't get the credit they deserve. I love city, for a large school it really feels like a community. It offers such a wide range of resources. I have met such amazing people and have had some of the best professors. There are so many wonderful clubs, and it's pretty easy to start your own!

Online Courses: Online courses are just as demanding as a traditional course. The workload can be overwhelming sometimes, and you can easily fall behind if you procrastinate. Peer to peer interactions comes in the form of forums, which can be dead sometimes since students sometimes create a post at the last minute. Professors though are more than welcome in helping students when they need. They also tell students that if they need assistance, they can contact them through email or meet them in person on campus.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It's easy to transfer credits. There's a wide range of courses/majors to choose from (online/weekend/night/etc).

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses allows more flexibility in terms of planning out when to do the work if you have a hectic work/school/other schedule. But, online classes are just as demanding as a traditional class. Sometimes, I felt that online classes were more stressful than a traditional class in terms of workload; it can get very stressful sometimes and you can easily fall behind. Peer to peer interactions comes in the form of forums, which isn't always productive. Students may post on such forums at the very last minute, thus making the point of interactions useless. Professors though are always more than helpful when students need assistance. You can either contact them online or schedule a time to meet them in person at school. With online classes, you get immediate access to grades for assignments, projects, and exams, lessons, assignments, and other stuff 24/7.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are passionate in their students and teachings. There's a broad variety of courses to choose from, whether for academic purposes or just for fun. Some classrooms are outdated and need renovation. Class size to classroom ratios are unbalanced in some cases.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: A large variety of services are available for transfer students, ESL students, international students, and everyone else in between. In terms of face to face services, I've had both good and bad experiences. Overall, I feel that the face to face services can be weak, however, counselors there are great.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The Early Childhood Development Program is great! All of the professors know their stuff and is very passionate with students in this field. There are classes in which students can observe a child program setting and even gain experience in working in these programs. There are infant/toddler programs and a Pre-K program on site (on the Ocean campus).

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professor are great and passionate in their students and teachings. However, some classrooms are outdated and some class size to room ratio isn't balanced. Great selection of programs and counselors are helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: My major is limited to only 1 or 2 class times.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: Have yet to experience post grad.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
