I love that Cerritos College is very diverse! There are students from many different backgrounds and experiences. You meet some of the best professors here because they genuinely care about your academic success. There's tons of academic clubs and plenty of other clubs as well. I would recommend anyone coming to Cerritos College before thinking of going straight to a 4 year because it's worth the wait.
Review Cerritos College
The campus is nice and very accessible. There is a mall down the street, gas stations right before the freeway entrance, and many places to eat if required. The atmosphere is very relaxed and inviting. There are former students who have dropped out but still stick around to see their friends. This can be seen as a source of inspiration. The teachers I have had all have been very helpful and compassionate to all their students. There have been several reports of harassment and violence, but you can sign up to get alerts. The campus police doesn't seem to care about anything other than taking money from students by issuing illegitimate parking tickets.
Cerritos College is a great place to explore your academics and interests. It a beautiful college that has been upgrading their structures and landscape. It counts with passionate and well prepared professors. Nice and safe neighborhood!
