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.
Review Cerritos College
Cerritos College was a fun experience overall. Coming out of high school I was still timid and struggle with school work and social interaction. Going to a community college before transferring to a 4 year university really helped me break out of my shell and discover new things. I learned that every person's future lies within their own hands and at the same time there are hundreds of people that will help you through your journey, but YOU must go and look for them. They will never come to you. If I could do it again, I certainly would!
I have taken many online courses and they have all been great. This really allows me to be able to work full time as well as take care of my family, in addition to furthering my education. I do have some classes that are required that must be taken on campus and luckily I have been able to work them into my work and home schedules. And although I understand why there are some courses that need the in-person teaching I would like to see even more opportunities to take required courses online.
