3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I had so much frustration with my first semester in college with classes I had no early or on time bus to take me back home at 8:30pm I had to show up to Spanish 1 everyday and wait till a 9:20pm bus. I did not know what to do as time went by in the middle of the dark.

Online Courses: Its's honestly not as bad as people say it is. There are good professors, a lot of academic programs. The campus is close to the mall, library, and it is also has other campuses in Indio, Mecca, Desert Hot Springs.

2 College Senior

Career Services: I can say its been more of a challenge to find a job there.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Difficult to attend for a short amount of time

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Many of the classes I wish I had taken did not fit my schedule which meant I had to wait until future semesters in order to take. I've had to skip a few classes due to the availability of the courses which are in a way affecting my transfer year. At times there aren't sufficient classes and this leaves many students without a class for the semester.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I've taken 2 online courses. A political science course and a sociology course which I have positive experience with. The proffesor/student relationship is great. Not much peer-to-peer interaction was made in eather class but I can say that the workload is the same as it would be in a regular classroom. I learned the same things but at my own pace which was useful.

4 College Senior

Career Services: The career services seem positive in the area where this college is located.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The classes are taught in class sizes averaging from 26 to 32 students which is good because there is a large amount of interaction between proffesors and students. Proffesor are overall very helpful and have tutoring hours that require hard work in order to progress in every course.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Many of the students attending College of the Desert are career oriented which is a positive thing. Not many internships are given out in this campus with is bad and the students here don't really communicate with one another except when they are forced to. The services offered are great! They have various places in the campus that are specially set up for tutors and learning.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm majoring in Psychology and I've only taken one class regarding this subject so far which is a little negative towards my education. I really did wish they offered more classes that focused in my major. My intro to psychology proffesor was very helpful and nice. He explained every assignment in a clear manner which made me feel comfortable.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've only attended College of the Desert for a year now but I can truly say this school is amazing. The staff is always there to help you and guide you whenever needed. The counselors here will give you different options in order to help you complish your goals in a moderate time without having to worry to much about what is the next step in life. I'm very comfortable speaking to the proffesor due to the fact that they seem passionate not only about the topics they teach but about their students.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There isn't much of a sense of "community" within the college. Not very many opportunities to connect with other students in different majors/fields. Everybody just does things on their own.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's good and proferssors are really nice, class sizes can have two many people.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: What makes my school good is there lots of place to study; I can always find a tutor to help me.
