4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have a lot of room to create the schedule I need and some times classes conflict but most of time I can make it work the way i need it to be.

2 College Senior

Online Courses: I learned from a friend that it was difficult to manage

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: One of my best classes to date is my Women's Studies Class we talk about a range of topics and get to voice our opinion regularly. The class size is about 20 to 24 students

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: We do have transfer students come speak at our school and have college fairs on occasion for students wanting to transfer

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The workload can sometimes be a bit overwhelming depending on the teacher, certain classes are only offered during certain semester and the teachers are the same and do not change up their curriculum

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: We always have events such as Health Awareness and also great job opportunities on campus. You can always meet new people and the teacher are all hopeful and want you to succeed

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes I took at El Camino were fun, however, the other classes weren't interesting than I thought. Some of my professors have a habit using sarcasm. It is a bit intimidating but once you get to know the professor, you eventually don't see the sarcasm as a bad thing of the teacher. There are some professors who should not be qualified as a teacher because some of them do not teach effectively for students to learn. When teachers don't have corresponding results of their effective teaching, it should reflect back to them so they can rethink what their doing wrong and to try something new.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I wanted to be in the nursing program at El Camino. However, the classes are hard to get in because they usually fill up fast. The pace of the program is intense. You have to be fully committed to the program itself. The classes are hard, and it consumes a lot of patience. With the various science classes that you have to take, it is not crazy to fail the classes the first time because it is challenging. That is why I changed my major to the Paralegal program because it is stepping stone for me to go straight into the pathway of a lawyer. It also overlaps my other major which is Criminal Justice. With the Paralegal program, the classes is already planned out so you don't have trouble choosing which classes to take. This program is not as competitive as the Nursing program. With the Paralegal program, once you finished taking the certain classes for the program, you receive a certificate that you completed the program. With the benefit of the certificate, you can use it as a leverage to get you internships under law firms.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Most classes are in a block schedule. Meaning, a class maybe only Monday and Wednesday's giving the students the opportunity to choose their schedule in the time they feel comfortable for them to attend class. Everyone works for a living, therefore, the classes are designed to be available at the students convenience. If students can't attend school on campus, they have a section for online classes as well as a hybrid class. Hybrid classes are online classes but on certain days you are required to show to class on campus. The hybrid classes are beneficial because it allows students to learn from an online class and also meet their teacher in person. When it is time to register for classes, it is highly important to make an appoint ahead of time because if you wait last minute, the classes that are left overs tend to be the boring classes. Trying to see a counselor during the registration period is hard because all of the students are trying to see them to. You are basically competing with the other students to see a counselor so you can register and secure your seat in the class you plan to enroll to.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The services at El Camino College is great. Counsellors help guide students in the right path to earn a degree in their specific major. They suggest students to be active in school. The campus of the school is amazing and is currently under construction. The environment is nice and clean. We have various resourceful centers to help students with reading, writing, etc. There is a program designed for students to transfer to universities. The staff and faculty members are genuinely interested in student success. The professors want their students to succeed not only in class but also in life.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Most of the classes are flexible and transfer pretty well to schools. I know people who have successfully transferred to USC, UCLA, UC Berkeley, CSULB, U of A, ASU etc.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: The online courses aren't that bad. I experienced some technical problems at first but for the most part, my experience has been positive. You have to meet on the 1st day before it all starts, at the beginning of the school year. The workload is bearable and definitely do able. Professors allow you to sit in on their regular classes if you're enrolled in the online one so that's helpful as well. Peer-to-peer interaction is encouraged and study groups also help.

3 College Senior

Career Services: Overall the career services center is pretty well done and organized. They can take some time to get back to you but when they do, most of the time, it's useful.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Courses - most of the needed Math/Science courses are available as well as a few interesting classes. They can fill up fast though, so make sure you register or waitlist as soon as you can. Class Styles - pretty traditional, one teacher teaches while students interact when asked. Some are more conversationalist, typically the communications and/or language classes. Class Size - not too big, starts off 20-30 for non-STEM classes and ends about 20-25. For STEM starts off around 40 people and ends around 20 people left.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Career prospects are really good, especially if you join MESA. If you keep your grades up you can intern and volunteer just about anywhere in LA/Long Beach/Torrance etc. Not much alumni networking. There are alumni and they sort of help you network but not much. Employers don't really recruit, or they rarely recruit. Career services is pretty decent, they'll help you out when you need it the most.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The academic experience has gone well. I enjoy most of the classes because of pretty good professors and some driven students.Overall it has been beneficial and somewhat enjoyable.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's a community college that's really good for STEM majors and is relatively close to me. Most of the STEM and non-STEM related professors are excellent.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: I wouldn't choose this school again because it is hard to leave and transfer out. Also the semester system is longer than the universities quarter system. Which takes longer to finish classes and to transfer out.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The courses I have attended at El Camino college have been great so far. The professors are always there to help and offer you the opportunity for one-on-one study sessions during their office hours. The professors at El Camino have helped me develop my skills in writing, speech, and mathematics as well. The class sizes are approximately 30 to 40 students per class . The quality of learning is great and I actually do feel like I have improved in my schooling.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Because it's a community college, I've already confirmed that my courses cover me for my transfer to SDSU. The Cal State GE requirements and the major requirements are easily accessible on ASSIST.org

5 College Senior

Online Courses: I've taken 6 online courses in my 2 years here at El Camino. Stats, Political Science, Law, Business, Econ, and Dance Appreciation. After taking all these classes, I can testify that they are all very accessible and well structured for the most part. They are made specifically for those who work while in school and cannot be on campus most of the time. Most of the online teachers are really clear about their requirements and make sure that the student actually learns something from the online work. It's a decent amount of work, and you won't save much time over a normal class in terms of hours put in, but if you like the flexibility of classes then online classes here are great.

5 College Senior

Career Services: As a community college whose goal is to get as many people transferred as quickly as possible, there are a ton of resources made specifically to help people transfer to the college they want to go to. The California community college route is straightforward and easy to follow.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Like before, there is a wide variety of classes offered and most of the professors are actually pretty good teachers. There are the normal outliers, but overall I've had a good experience with my classes here.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's a community college. You can't expect much. Associates degrees and technical degrees are all you can get. While they can definitely get you into the field you might want, it's not a place to go if you want to get a really good job.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The academics at the school are actually pretty good. The problem lies in the fact that it's still just a junior college anyway you look at it. There are technical classes and job opportunities, but not many job fairs and internships because the school doesn't give a 4-year program.
