The eruption of COVID-19 pandemic has made me feel so grateful to be a part of Berkeley City College. Their late actions with the pandemic; however, did not disappointed me. The stigma that online classes won't be helpful has totally disappeared. My only worry while taking online classes is the difficulty to communicate with professors; however, the reality was so different. Quick response to students emails, flexible grading options as well as online resources have proved how professional they are. After one semester taking online classes, I feel extremely enjoyable and motivated to learn more. I can't wait to have my next semester full of online classes.

Berkeley city college is right in the heart of downtown Berkeley, and have very easy commute. Bart is just 1 minute walk distance. It is near UC Berkeley so you can visit some of their libraries. Berkeley city college is very diverse and celebrates many cultural festivals. It’s one 5 stories building so finding class rooms and other facility rooms is super convenient. Parking lot is the building next to it and there is also a new parking lot opposite to it.
Staffs are super friendly and will help you through any problem. You have easy access to counselor’s appointment. Every Tuesday you get free fruits and vegetables. And every once a week or month a rep from UC or any other university will be available to have a session with.
Jobs in the campus is available. There are students and TA available to help you with classes in learning area room for free. There is also food court to chill and eat lunches in between classes.
Over all Berkeley city college is best community college .
Berkeley City College is an easily accessible one-building campus located in Downtown Berkeley. The campus provides a wide array of courses, certificates and associate's degrees. With research you can find amazing professors that not only teach well but challenge students to perform and produce university level work.
I would change a few things about Berkeley City College. For one, there is no student parking which is very inconvenient as the campus neighbors various schools and businesses in the heart of Downtown Berkeley. Also as a business major the classes I was enrolled in often lacked diversity considering how diverse the demographics of the campus are.
