The campus has new modern buildings that make the campus look like a place you want to get an education. If you use ratemyprofessors.com, you are most likely going to have a nice selection of great teachers that love what they do and teach very well. However, I really wish they would gather up some funds from the public or whomever, and build a big parking garage right next to the library. They should also consider adding another level to the fitness center, it is way too packed in there! Also, this school does NOT favor transfer students! I took a class called financial accounting at another accredited college and it wasn't transferable to a very similar course with the same name because it only had 3 credits instead of 4. So silly. I also took many higher level math classes including a calculus class, but was not transferable because it wasn't a survey to calculus for the business administration degree. Honestly, calculus is calculus, it doesn't change to suit different colleges needs. Classes should be more standardized and easier to transfer, especially if you move a lot due to being a military dependent. And some counselors here are more into the schools profits rather than helping you out. It seems like a few have turned bitter after the budget cuts. Also, if the school wants to cut costs, they should probably take away half of the huge pond and have a nice low maintenance garden with small koi pond instead. Otherwise, this school deserves an A. Just make sure you aren't transferring from another school.

Cypress offers so many different program possibilities and great counselors that will help you the whole way through. Since this campus is a little smaller, your accessibility to all of the offices (bursar, admissions, financial aid, counseling) is great. I believe that all of the staff do a great job at helping you where they can and you get what you need and where you need to be quickly. Cypress is an amazing school and has such a wide variety of personnel with many personalities so you're bound to have a class with an awesome professor more often than not!

I love the library the best. I am pleased to know I have a source of resource facility that is welcoming and open most of the time I am on the campus. There is no social scene as this is a community college - but I am here for my education so I am okay with the fact that social life does not thrive here. I enjoy playing pool at the student center from time to time but that area does not cater to me very much. I would much rather spend my time at the gym (which is open lab hours and much like the library, is open most of the time I am on campus). I also enjoy the gym very much. We have sufficient equipment for the general amount of people that use the gym. The equipment is clean. It may not be sparkling new but it is not terribly ancient either. There are monitors who clean/sanitize the machines daily. The gym even provides a towel (I suggest those with OCD use the towels for nothing more than sitting on it on the mats or wiping perspiration off the machines - do not use these for your face/body! Many, many, many people have used them!
