Overall Experience: College of the Desert was very easy to register and enroll into classes.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I have only taken one full-online course, and I am currently enrolled in it. Our online program (BlackBoard) is very easy to use and convenient for a busy student. The teacher has appropriate deadlines and a manageable workload. Tech support and tutoring are all just a call away.

4 College Senior

Student Body: The College of the Desert student body is very diverse. Most students are bright, attentive, friendly, and eager to learn.

4 College Senior

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: My major is kinesiology, at College of the Desert we have a great Kinesiology department and many experienced teachers and faculty. They also currently offer a Personal Fitness Specialist Certificate in addition to an associates in Kinesiology.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The curriculum offered at College of the Desert is great, however, due to a large number of Nursing majors and other medical field majors, our science and biological sciences department is greatly impacted and hardly able to keep up with the amount of students who need these classes to graduate.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: College of the Desert has a beautiful campus and resourceful transfer counselors. Additionally, our library is expansive and has every resource imaginable to aid in student success. COD also has a wonderful student tutoring center that is available during school hours for free for all enrolled students.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: There are many different times in the day/during the week that you can take a class. Some classes do have a weird schedule, but if school is your number 1 priority you should be able to make it work.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have taken so many fun, interesting courses. I have been taught by motivating, relatable teachers who truly cared about my education. My school is unique because people come from all over just to go to this community college. I would choose to go to this school again if I could do it all over because it is a great foundation for my college education. Community college saves my parents and I so much money, but I also feel like I am getting a quality education that is going to help me transfer to a top university.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have loved all of my courses so far. I feel like I am in a great learning environment, and when I am having trouble with a professors teaching style, all I have to do is ask a few questions and then I understand. There are a variety of courses offered from the arts to science. The sizes of classes are similar to high school (20-50 students per classroom). The professors usually know every students name.

College Freshman

Overall Experience: I do not know how to answer this question

College Freshman

Online Courses: I have not taken an online course at my college, but I get good feedback from my peers.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: A typical student at my school would be someone who is just trying to get their general education over with so that they can transfer to a university. The student body is diverse filled with Christians, African Americans, Gays, etc. People are accepting in regards to diversity, but there are still cliques.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: The value of education I am receiving is worth the tuition I paid. I tried to get financial aid because my dad got laid off, but there was so much paperwork and after trying to figure it out 1-2 times, my family kind of just gave up.

College Freshman

Career Services: I have not looked into post-grad services at my school because I will be looking into that at the college I transfer to.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The kinesiology program is awesome. It requires many classes and a pretty heavy workload. The more I learn about health, fitness, and wellness, the more I love my major. A new gym was built in the past year and the weight rooms are very nice. There are also classrooms attached to a fitness room that can be used for inside activities such as yoga, dance, or self defense. The teachers are inspiring and motivating.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I love my college, but there are a few things I dislike about it. Some of the professors who teach subjects such as lower maths (arithmetic, beginning algebra, intermediate algebra, etc) are not professional at all. But on the other hand, I have had many wonderful professors in other subjects. The registration process is pretty stressful. The workload helps me feel prepared to transfer to a university where the workload will be much heavier.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The student centers are helpful for studying in between classes and getting together for group projects.

3 College Freshman
