I have honestly been shocked by the level of education I have received from Cerritos. I went into my educational experience hearing really negative things about community colleges and even reading some things on various websites, I felt nervous! Honestly, the college far exceeded my expectations. My teachers have been beyond helpful and I have been intellectually challenged by them. There are also a lot of honors and priority registration opportunities.

I really like how Cerritos College is small yet big and easy to get around. It had maps all over school which helps. The professors are really good and always willing to help when you ask them for it. The counselors are really nice and want the best for a student. In overall, Cerritos College is a great College! I would totally recommend
Cerritos College offers a variety of groups, clubs, programs, and events that help the individual student's needs. The Scholar's Honors and K-16 Bridge programs helped me quite a bit in the transferring process. Professors are also there to help students not only in class but in their career goals. The best thing for students to know when attending the school is to utilize what is available and make connections with staff and professors. I do see some of my peers who are not fully aware of all the resources that are available to them or are completely overwhelmed. The only thing I would like to see more of is active participation from those students.
