Academic Experience: It depends on many factors. Examples include if you are able to pay for college, apply for classes, get the supplies for said classes, what financial you receive, etc. If all of that is covered, then one must go to class and do the work. As long as one does the work, they have a chance of passing.

Academic Experience: My major is Physical Education(P.E). I love P.E a lot because it's one of the classes where it's not a typical class, it's a class were I can exercise in the outside environment and get physical activities benefits like reducing stress, getting vitamin C from the sun, and keeping away sickness than just sitting in a class room listening to a teacher talk while students listen.

Academic Flexibility: Financial aid can't help you if you are on academic probation for just one semester and did well the following semesters afterwards. Just unforgiving. They can't and won't help you, no matter how much you struggle, no matter how much you try, it's impossible.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I don't know what makes El Camino unique from any other college or university. If I was to do it all over again with nothing but a back pack on my back and no knowledge on how the campus is, I choose no because it took a lot of struggling and more struggling with no reward(financially speaking) to get to where I am. The college is unforgiving and not understandable in financial aid, where I need the help the most but am helpless.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: If there internships at El Camino, maybe there are some on campus. I doubt it in the case that, since my major is Physical Education, no internships exist on campus, only outside of campus.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I have taken online Kinesiology for the first time and it was a unique experience. It was most reading an online book to answer questions for a quiz or exam and the discussion was based on answering questions of the professor. Hardly any interaction between the students and other students or the professor.

3 College Senior

Student Body: I know that there are many organizations in the Student Body but I couldn't describe it since I never have been interested in it.

1 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have had some bad experiences with financial aid. You get penalized for having been on Academic Probation just for one semester that can come back to be used against you in the future semsters making receiving financial aid impossible to receive when trying to re-apply for it with the SAP appeal form. One must be the perfect student every semester because one false move is disaster and no one can help you out of it.

4 College Senior

Career Services: I believe El Camino allows graduates to come back to this college as not Alumni but as experienced people that can offer advice on how to succeed in both college and in life.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: El Camino college has an amazing selection of library resources from borrowing books to online databases to help with research and essay related papers to a reading center for tutoring for English classes, to tutoring for nearly all subjects.

Academic Flexibility: I haven't transferred credits from this school so I don't quite know but it is important to make sure that whatever class you are taking can transfer smoothly over the either a CSU, UC, and out of state schools.

Overall Experience: The campus set up is simple. This school has the best Sign Language Interpreting program so I would definitely come back to this school. I feel that the school should have healthier food options instead fried foods maybe baked goods. This school has the necessary and basic classes for an individual to transfer to a four year college. Also this school has done a lot of revamping so it is coming up in appearance.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Two of my class are roughly between 15-30 students. That is not a bad class size. Even with this class size, it is key that the professor knows who you are so I advise seating in the front of the classroom. If something is not clear in terms of their lecture, do ask so you can perform well on the exam. Every teacher has their class style, you must adjust because it won't be the same. Some teachers get off topic easily and that can have an affect on the direction of the class getting through the necessary topics for the upcoming tests.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Everyone is helpful but I do suggest that you to talk someone that is familiar with your degree program.

4 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: Online courses are great for people who cannot regularly attend an on campus class. The only negative is when you don't stay on top of the assignments due dates and upcoming tests. I do like the online courses because of the interaction with fellow classmates which is relation to the discussions boards. This is where you can read on everyone's experiences and learn more about their thoughts and actions.

4 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: This campus has grown to become a diverse group of students. There are Asians, Hispanics, Caucasians and African-Americans from young high schoolers to single parent mothers. Everyone has their own back story and it seems they are all here for a common purpose which to gain more credits and to complete their educational goal in attending a four year college or university. There are social clubs on campus and student elections, which is great to have because ant student can become an important member of this campus.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The progress of everything financial aid from this school for this program has been great for me. Since I did not have the appropriate funds to cover this semester's expensive, it was a blessing to have the school pay for it. My advice would be to file out the fafsa months ahead of time before the months of February and March. The earlier the better.

Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I haven't yet gone to the career center to discuss my path for the Interpreting Program. Once I move up to the differ rob levels in American Sign Language, I will need make a visit to the career center. I don't quite know which area I would like to interpret in.

Academic Experience: We are required to attend a Deaf event and discuss our experience there. We must also interview a deaf person so we as hearing people get a better sense of what a deaf person has gone through and understand there background. Lastly, we must choose from a list of books on the topic of Sign Language and write about what we learned. I am apart of the Sign Language Interpreter Program.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: I am just getting back in the swing of Sign Language so I'm still adjusting. The ASL lab is very helpful to go to and the teachers there are cool to sign with. My current teacher is sharp but he is fair in how he runs the class. The work load is moderate but I do wish we knew the dates for some of the assignments that we have turned in yet because we have one more month yet for school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Everything is accessible. But if want something done in a timely matter then I suggest get to school on time especially when dealing with the administration office.
