No school is perfect, but attending Berkeley City College has truly been something positive in my life. I have tested the waters of 2 other community college campuses, and Berkeley has been my favorite. It's geographic location a block away from UC Berkeley is significant. Being so close to UC Berkeley gives Berkeley City Collge a similar attitude of academic rigor. There is also easy access to UC Berkeley's public libraries and study spaces. My professors at Berkeley City College have for the most part been engaging, friendly, and very professional. Some of the downsides are lack of cafeteria, field, or pool. Despite this, I have had luck making friends, and finding a supportive community at Berkeley City College.

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.
