I loved this school! It's tiny, but has a great community and wonderful teachers! I enjoyed every day that I went here (and I'm honestly not the biggest fan of school). Not to mention the school is in a great location so if you have a large chunk of time between classes and can't go home, you can always find a way to occupy your time. The only thing that was a hassle was setting your schedule in a way that your classes would not conflict. Some classes are only offered at one time so be mindful of that. Overall this is one of my favorite schools!

Berkeley City College contains many helpful staff and the teachers I have experienced so far tend to be interactive with students and eager to help you understand the subject matter. The counselors, shoutout to Mr.Barton and Denise, are wonderful and go above every means to help you succeed. The campus is not very great for social life or making friends, however. And there is no cafeteria unfortunately, but plenty of good eats around shattuck and telegraph! This is a school to attwnd if you want to transfer from a cc to a 4 year university. Most students have that goal in mind, and the location of uc berkeley right down the street is a strong motivating factor.
I've been a student at BCC for over a year, and I appreciate the support from all faculty and staff members I've encountered. There are lots of resources available, and the ability to meet with potential colleges/universities representatives. BCC offers workshops that encourage high education and cultural awareness, which keeps students connected to other communities (as well as their own).
