College Junior

Overall Experience: Not done with the school yet.

College Junior

Online Courses: Never took an online course.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The library is a very good place to study. It also has a reading center which is very helpful to do readings. The library also has computers that can be used to do assignments. Theres is a librarian that assist students whenever they need help. And lastly it has a printer to print out our assignments fos the cost of just 10 cents per sheet.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I have not had any experience with courses that are entirely online at El Camino College, but I have taken courses that use services such as ETudes and TurnItIn for the submission and review of coursework. These courses usually benefit from the services but do not take full advantage of them.

College Senior

Overall Experience: There are few opportunities provided by El Camino College, but there is a lot of advertising for outside opportunities. I do not know of any alumni at the college, employers recruiting on the campus, or any career-based services offered by the college.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: As a Computer Science major, the workload is as heavy as the choice of path. Since I am also taking courses to satisfy the requirements to earn a degree and major in Computer Engineering, I am taking calculus-based physics and some extra general education courses. I should note that I have been able to complete several classes prior to becoming a full-time student, so even though I only have this one year to be a full-time student at El Camino College before I transfer, I have acquired well over 60 semester units total, so it is a very long path to success. Being a science major, I have been exposed to some scholarship/internship/residency opportunities sponsored and provided by El Camino College, including a 6-day residency at UCLA.

Academic Experience: Registering for classes has always been a hassle for me since I was enrolled in El Camino College concurrently since middle school. In my full-time semesters at the college I have not had trouble signing up for my classes, but the registration proces still involved a lot of back-and-forth with the Office of Admissions and Records. The professors and course quality are fine in my opinion, but a lot of my peers disagree with me. Tutors are few and far between at my college, to the point that I have taken up private tutoring in order to help my peers in their coursework (and make a bit of money while I do so).

3 College Senior

Student Body: My experiences with the student body vary based on what their intended majors are, but for the science majors such as myself, I can only say that my peers are okay. I have had trouble forming study groups, getting people interested in my club, and getting club members to show up or respond to me at all. Since it is a community college, everyone seems to be busy with their own personal problems. I have not had a very good experience socializing at the college.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is a fairly large student services center, a complete library with rooms that can be loaned to groups of students, and a study center specifically for science majors. I have had the pleasure of taking advantage of all of these. I am also the president of the Computer Applications Club at El Camino so I have been exposed to the many student-organized activities that are also available at the college.

College Senior

Career Services: As of yet I have not had any experiences with any centers or networks related to careers at El Camino College, likely because I already know what my career options are and have an intended major/career choice.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Paying tuition at El Camino is much preferred to starting with a four-year university, with an in-state tuition rate of $46 per unit taken. There are a few extra costs that cannot be waived via financial aid (a $19.50 health fee and a $0.50 representation fee) but paying these is a simple process. I received a Board of Governers fee waiver as my financial aid, so I can focus solely on spending money for books and other school materials.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I was concurrently enrolled with El Camino throughout my middle and high school years. Each time I was placed at the back of the line for admission and always had to attempt to add classes despite being just as qualified as my classmates. Each time my parents had to explain our case to a dean at the college, and while they were happy to sign when shown my grades, originally they were not cooperative and almost prevented me from excelling in my education.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Well, I love my major but the opportunities for people with my major are not as vast because Computer Science majors are somewhat the minority.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Teacher give a tolerable workload. Class registration isn't troublesome.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have not taken any online courses

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Since I am not part of any programs, I do not have priority admission. So, I just learn to adjust to the classes and make smart moves with my time.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Understanding that my school is not a university, I know El Camino College has a lot of activities for college students. The campus activities involve students having fun and learning about the importance of staying in school.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The process requires very few steps to understand, and the staff is very helpful. Yet, the classes are expensive - $44 a unit.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have experienced varied experiences with the professors because each professor is an individual with their own personal situations and style of teaching. My art teacher acted reasonable to me and gave me an A in his class after having a C before. The course he taught consisted of a lot of art history. My English teacher made it extremely feasible to pass her class by not overwhelming me with writing assignments. My math teacher acted very nonchalant and frank at first but I developed respect for him because of his emphasis of helping students with thoroughly understanding the work instead of just giving us methods for problems.

College Sophomore

Career Services: Rating will not be applicable, because I am a college student at a community college. I really wont have any experience with their post-grad services.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body is filled with Asians, Middle Easterns and some African and African-Americans. The economic status of many of the students is mainly middle class. Overall, people on the campus are open to new things and ideas. No one acts cruel to one another or makes jest to other classmates.

College Junior

Career Services: College freshman, will give answer in future though.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Just work toward your degree and make connections. At the end of the day, know the right people, being socially awkward won't get you far.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The three professors I've had so far were solid, nice and understanding people. All of them were merciful when it came to grades and without my professor's mercy I probably wouldn't have passed my math class. I am only saying it is okay because not everyone is as lenient and I sense that these new teachers may or may not prove me wrong.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel like everything is more word of mouth at El Camino if anything else. If you got it you let CERTAIN people know. Then again, it's like that everywhere if you really think about it.
