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.

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

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

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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

City College offers a variety of student support resources. Although the library on the main Ocean campus does not boast of an extensive collection, it is nonetheless a valuable source of information, offering periodicals, books, textbooks, computers, and printers. The staff is supportive, friendly, and generally helpful, unless they are overwhelmed during the peak periods right before midterms and finals. Along with the library, the Learning Assistance Center is another excellent resource where students can get help from student tutors on a variety of subjects. Other resources that cater to students include the EOPS program (Extended Opportunity Program and Services), the APASS program that helps Asian Pacific American students, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), and the WSP (Writing Success Project). CCSF also has a Veterans Educational Benefits Office that offers counseling services and other academic support to veterans. 

Many of the campus resources not only enhance academic performance, but they also foster "community." However, the campus itself is pretty old and rundown, and renovations usually come very slowly. With the recent state budget cut on education, renovations and new facilities seem unlikely in the near future. Many of the campus support programs have also been cut due to lack of funding. It is not rare to see a long line of students waiting for help at the understaffed Learning Assistance Center. Most students agree that more still needs to be done to make services and resources more accessible to the student body.

Did You Know?
When getting the required textbooks for classes, students at City College have an additional option beyond buying books secondhand or borrowing them for a small fee from online book loan sites. Students at City College can borrow textbooks for free through the AS Book Loan program. They can check out the textbook at the beginning of the semester and return it at the end for free. The only problem is that not all textbooks are available, and there is sometimes a three- or four-hour wait in line.
