I love Cabrillo College. It has a small, community feel to it while at the same time quite a bit of diversity. The instructors are (mostly) out of this world fantastic. I feel very supportive here at Cabrillo, and there are many wonderful resources. There is free tutoring that you can sign up for in the library, where you schedule sessions that meet weekly. The Math Learning Center (MLC) is a wonderful place to go and seek assistance on assignments, which has always been helpful to me. I took algebra online, and walked away with a 98% in the class because of the support in the MLC. Additionally, the STEM center is wonderful for those in a STEM major. I go there frequently for Chemistry assistance, and love having a community of people to be around that are taking the same type of classes. Everyone there is really helpful, and I love that there is a big couch and kitchen that makes it feel like you are home. I received a free rental textbook this semester because of a program they have that allows students to rent textbooks for free until funds run out. I actually got through this semester without paying for a single book- and I'm taking two STEM classes and an English class!

All in all, Cabrillo is a fantastic value and a high quality education. A+.
Review Cabrillo College
Cabrillo College has been the best educational experience in my life. I must say that the decision to attend a community college before moving on to a four-year university has been one of my best decision to date. Cabrillo College offers a variety of classes that suits each person's' schedule who would like to extend their education. They offer associate's degrees, as well as, they grant people the possibility to transfer to a four-year institution.My experience in this school has been great, since there are many opportunities to receive help with assignments. Professors as educational centers are available during the week willing to help us in and concerns we might have. One thing that I would change is the schedule for the final exams. In my opinion, I suggest reconsideration since classes from eight to nine in the morning have their exams at seven in the morning. During the fall semester this schedule make is very dangerous, cold, and difficult for students to arrive on time.
Since switching from Blackboard to Canvas for the online courses, navigation and access to online materials has gotten one million times easier. I loved my online classes this semester. Most classes you take will have some element that is online, either posting lecture slides, discussion or assignments. Very easy once you get used to it, and the app for iPhone is great!
