5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had the best first year at Del Mar College. I am going back in the summer, fall and spring.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: I'm not quite sure what the job opportunities Del Mar offers for graduates but I know I'm in the honor society and they have endless resources to alumni.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the teachers. As you know, teachers make the class either worthwhile and fun/knowledgable. The quality of teachers at Del Mar is the best I've encountered in any school I have attended.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The sonography program at Del Mar is accredited and the program is one of the best, if not the best,

In the whole state of Texas. The curriculum is challenging but I know the teachers will help me be my best as long as I put forth the effort.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would definitely choose Del Mar as my school of choice. There are so many helpful programs for students to succeed. The teachers are compassionate and actually care about their students. I'm a non traditional student, being 30, and I feel like the teachers understand how much more work it is for a non traditional student. Being single mothers and having jobs all the teachers I have encountered really work with me because they know I want to succeed and I have a 4.0

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Some classes were more flexible than others while my music lessons for percussion were extremely difficult and strict. I had to be deathly ill or be attending a funeral to have an excused absence. Other times if I was sick or not healthy enough to perform, a zero would be given to me and would have to schedule another lesson time. Also I have been 5 minutes late, given a zero and still had to do my lesson. However most of my classes were really flexible and caused me no trouble. Lastly, the faculty at the registrars office make it so easy and efficient to deliver transcripts to a university.

2 College Senior

Online Courses: I personally do not like online classes because the teaching and learning aspect of it all diminishes the purpose. Yes it is somewhat easier, but I feel like I don't learn as much through an online class. It is more efficient and is very easy to use the website where the class takes place, but attending lectures in a real classroom setting while listening to a professor teach and talk helps me understand and comprehend better. Also, online classes are fast paced as opposed to a medium comfortable pace within the semester.

3 College Senior

Career Services: Depending on the degree or major, Del Mar caters and helps those students in finding jobs for life. However, I'm a music major with an associate degree that cannot give me a job for life. I have to at least obtain a bachelors if I plan to teach at a middle school or high school. Although I will say Del Mar does in fact prepare students for the next big step they choose to take.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Every course taken, whether it's a core class or major classes, every professor holds a large amount of knowledge and shares it with the student. The quality and variety of courses are excellent with numerous certificate and associate degrees. The class sizes for core curriculums had 30-50 students while the class size for music majors were small. I personally like having a smaller class because it makes me focus and pay attention more, allowing more one on one approaches.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The highest degree a student can earn at Del Mar is an associates since it is technically considered a 2 year school. Once a graduate earns his/her degree, the next step would be to transfer to a 4 year university, that is if the student wants to take that route. There are many options a student can take, and I believe Del Mar guides every student for the next step.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The Del Mar College music program is one of the best programs in the state of Texas among the big schools like Berkley, UNT or Yale. The Faculty is great and very professional when it comes to teaching their students. They want what is best for that student and cares about the pans and future that that student will take. In other words, Del Mar's music program and staff sets a student up for success. The workload is very hectic and stressful if 17 credit hours are taken. 12-17 credits is going to require lots of time, effort, practice and dedication. Also, a brand new music building was built for concert band rehearsal, theory classrooms and 2 huge studios for the outstanding sound recording technology program.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Del Mar College is an underrated community college in Corpus Christi, Texas that offers students great education at a reasonable price. What Del Mar has to offer students for the price they will be paying is more than worth it. The faculty staff are flawless, ambiguous, helpful and extremely intelligent; They will force the best out of a student and will care for the students development process as they make their way through the next step they want to take. Del Mar College is where dreams are delivered.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The program is like any medical program with lots of reading and learning. There are always more than one correct answer but theres only one best suited for that situation.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The occupational therapist assistant program is tough but the instructors are very helpful in over coming difficulties.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It has the feel of a university campus at the decent price of a community college. The faculty are fantastic and will absolutely bend over backwards to help and challenge you. With the smaller class sizes, it's much easier to get the one-on-one attention whenever you need it.

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good education at a low price- unlike other colleges, this one's close proximity to the beach is an awesome added bonus.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Some classes are only offered once a year and not every semester, which can be really inconvenient. Transferring credits was fairly easy with all the right paperwork.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses are set up the best, most efficient way but they are just not for me. I prefer to physically be in a classroom and feel i learn best in that environment.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I'm not very familiar with it yet.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really like the professors who are organized and experienced. The variety of classes offered and required for graduation are wholesome but I would like it if they would allow the student to hone in on certain subjects. Class sizes are moderately small, from 12 to 25 which I enjoy.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: With a degree and some experience it is easy to get into the industry. Every so often the campus hosts onsite Career Fairs or will notify the students through mass email of other various similar events.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The program is fun, it's great to be around people who have similar interests. Workload outside of class is pretty average however, this program has a variety of classes that can range from 1 1/2 hours up to 8 hours long for a single class meeting. Facilities are quite old but equipment is up to date.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have encountered some teachers that are so passionate about their subject and teaching but like everywhere there are also those that are not as inclined to reach out and capture us, the students. The primary reason I am at this school is because it is so inexpensive.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I plan on transferring to a pharmacy school since my current school doesn't offer pharmaceutical programs. Right now I am just taking basic then I will transfer. The facility is very helpful with resources.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This is my first year of college. I really don't know how other colleges are, but I believe what makes this school unique is having a lot of resources provided for me. I also have a peer mentor that helps me with pharmacy information and it helps me out big time. If I was to do it all over again, I would still choose this school. I

4 College Student

Academic Flexibility: So far everything is working out.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Del Mar College is a great institution. Most students feel that the experience is rewarding, the classmates are interesting, and the courses are both informative and challenging.

Students graduate with skills they can apply to real-world jobs, and they rarely graduate with as much financial debt as their peers in traditional institutions. The school provides a safe space for student to explore different opportunities and figure out the career path that best suits them.
