3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: as a student i believe in learning. however there may be some difficulties such as getting having a low grade in a certain course but i believe all of that is due to a bad way of studying. my academic experience at Cosumnes River College is great so far because i have a good GPA and i will do the best i can to keep higher. Even though the books are expensive, i don't regret it very much because after learning fro it i think it is wort it.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: the academics offered is okay. i love the topics from my english 101 class with the professor given because they are related to our daily lives and i find them very helpful because they helps me to know more how the society works. sometimes it is hard to get in classes due to many students, you may be on a waiting list and you may end up not registered by the end of the day. however some professors gives permition numbers because they know that after two or three days some students may drop the class.

3 College Sophomore

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The counselors are usually extremely busy so it is very hard to get ahold of them. Sometimes, when an appointment is available, the counselors I have gotten are very rushed to finish the meeting. Although there are some drawback, the schools faculty is overall supportive.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: In CRC, there are times when the courses, all though available and open, are not within my desired time slot. This results in very spaced out courses that don't align with another, and often requires me to drive multiple times due to the gap of each classes. I try to minimize this frustration by looking for courses that not only fulfill my general education and major requirements but also fits into my schedule while being closely apart from each other. There seems to be a strict policy in which in order to be considered as a full-time student, you would need to have a minimum of 12 units, which for some students, can be a very tough workload, depending on the level of difficulty the course is.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My favorite experiences here at CRC is hanging with my friends in the cafeteria room. Although we don't do that much anymore, the main popular hub seems to be in the cafeteria room, where people sit with their friends to eat and chat, a piano where people play, tables filled with gamers and people who play trading-card games, as well as those who bring their laptops and tablets to study or relax. The unique part of CRC is that the main attention is the cafeteria room, as no where else is that populated and so full of life and culture. CRC does sport the aura of peacefulness and very small-town-esque atmosphere which I believe is like a much bigger high school. It is the only culture that CRC has. If I had a chance to do it all over however, I would have gone with my initial decision to go directly to a state college like Sacramento State College. CRC is lovely but it is missing the component of a true collegiate and commuter school in which college students truly can participate in clubs, fraternities, sororities, and become apart of movements and cultures.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors here at this school are very knowledgeable and at times caring, especially if you choose the right professors. Many people utilize online resources to help choose the right professor in order to learn from, especially form websites like RateMyProfessor.com. Some issues however, are that in a given semester, there are very limited courses offered for certain majors, which tend to be filled rather quickly. Those that are given higher priority to choose classes before others have an advantage and it tends to force many students to delay their course fulfillments much longer. The classes sizes are much more larger for more popular professors, as well a more important or significant course such as Chemistry, Physics or Writing. Depending on the professor, the workload varies depending on the flow of the course in which the professor sets, as many professor has their style for course progression that suits their teaching.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: The job and internship opportunities here at CRC are very lacking. It is rarely publicized and tend to be only accessible and researchable at the career center, and even then the career center offers a limited selection of job and internship opportunities. Most of the time, you will need a career counselor to help gear your specific wants and needs of a certain job, and at times they can only do so much and offers you some job-seeking resources. Work study opportunity is highly advantageous and beneficial here to college students, but because it is so advantageous and beneficial it is highly saturated, resulting in filled positions in most, if not, all sectors in the college campus. There are little to no word on upcoming job and career fairs, and very limited job employers recruiting on campus, as many recruiters tend to be college recruiters.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Although i never personally have enrolled in an online course, I do know that it offers students a convenient way to enroll into a certain course and learn from home, or anywhere without the trouble of physically attending class. Professors at CRC would often rely on the D2L online educational tracking system as a way to teach their class online or other online sources. The professor/student relationship ironically, is not entirely distant or nonexistent, but often fortified as students email or send messages and stay in communication with their professors all along the entire course. This is of course if their professor is responsive. The workload does tend to be a little harder, due to the fact that the students are missing the human interaction from being in a class and directly and personally being taught by the professor. This can be an issue to those who rather not only wishes to learn through hearing and seeing, but often feeling as well. It is also a little harder because the material being taught is often condensed into readings with questions to answer or mathematical questions.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The student body here at CRC seems very spaced out. There are rarely days where it is overcrowded, and the only times I do see when CRC is highly populated is during rush hours, mainly on middays. CRC is quite diverse. There seems to be no one singular-dominated ethnicity. However, because CRC is a community college, many students I see who attend CRC are mainly students that could not afford to attend a university, or students that did not excel hard enough in high school to apply for any prestige college. There are many times where I do see high levels of troublemakers and underachievers, but most classes are in an controlled environment without too much trouble. To put it in perspective, the student body here at CRC resembles that of a high school, though instead of just being comprised of young adults, there are older students that come to either learn more or have interest in finding a new career or are working for a promotion.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The value of education that I am receiving at CRC seems quite fair. There are many valuable things that I have learned in some of the courses that I have attended so far, so I believe that the education I am receiving is worth the money that me and other tax payers paid for. However, in terms of the financial aid distribution, I do see a discrepancy between middle class students and lower-income students. The cost for each class without the BOG waver are hundreds of dollars, and students not eligible for certain grants or wavers feel the full blow of the expenses. However, because CRC is a community college, having financial aid as well as certain fees wavered is a advantage in terms of saving, especially for those who either want a formal education to expand their career path, or whether they want to save up money before venturing on to a university. The financial aid office here at CRC excels in helping students to take care of their questions as well as offer solutions. The other issue is that they are often undermanned, which results in long lines. Though it is remedied with how quick the consultations go with each student. For those that do not have financial aid, or even do have financial aid, work study is a great way to have an additional source of income to provide for your tenure here at CRC. Filling and applying for scholarships are a great way as well!

Career Services: The career services here at CRC seems very limited to new freshmen college students. The career center seems specifically geared towards transferring students or upcoming transfer students. CRC does maintain a good alumni network, with alumni not only from CRC but other schools come here to have job experience either as a teacher or counselor. The job opportunities offered here at CRC again is very limited and rarely publicized.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The academic experience here at CRC is typical since it is a community college. The facilities are spread out and are at times difficult to locate. There are very obscure from the public and only when you ask or are directed to is when you realize there was certain facilities such as major-specific offices for outreach. The majors here seem easily transitionable and some of the diverse general education courses do count for some major requirements. Job opportunities however are not very publicized and only are found at the career center when students request for some or for help.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The academic experience offered here at CRC is typical but bearable. It is a good school with some very caring and knowledgeable professors. The workload correlates with how many units you take, so the more units you take, the more harder it is to maintain good grades as well as keeping up on homework assignments, projects, and exams. The class registration process is not much to be desired, since although most non-major classes are somewhat available for the first week or two during registration, one main issue are the major courses, such as Chemistry or Physics, which tend to fill up very quickly. This would mean that those with low-priority to choose classes are left at a huge disadvantage as those with higher priority class registration fill up the important general education and major courses quickly. There seems to be little emphasis on special study programs where students can get together and study in groups, and it seems that this only happens in the case of certain courses in which either the professor highly encourages study groups, or the difficulty of the courses requires students to do so. There are not many student-aid programs other than the EOPS program, which seems specifically geared towards lower income or underprivileged students. Although this is understandable, it does leave the middle-class students at a disadvantage, especially due to the little amount of financial aid that most students receive from FAFSA and grants.

2 College Junior

Campus Resources: I feel like I'm not connected with the school's information about scholarship or even with the counselors compared to my high school. I understand that the counselors are often busy but when there are times of emergencies I don't seem to have access to the counselors or student-service for help. It seems I have to rely on my friends or families who went to CRC in order to be updated with important information.

2 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Again, wrongly dropped from a class.

I'm back in it but it doesn't say so in my records.

I know what can transfer and what can't so that's good.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like some parts and dislike others.
