Cerritos College Reviews
I believe Cerritos College is one of the best community colleges in the area! They help you with specific programs they offer such as Cerritos Bridge Program that helps high school seniors ease their way into college, with assistance with financial aid to book grants, as well as providing free tuition for two years. I believe staff and professors are very knowledgeable and helpful, every staff at Cerritos wants you to succeed and help guide you in the right direction towards your educational goals!
The student body and faculty at Cerritos College is very welcoming, considering that it is barely my second semester here, I'd say it is very quaint and the people are nice and involved. Although there are some disputes between part-time employees and administration, it barely affects the overall experience at Cerritos College. A very fun and involved College with down-to-earth Professors that are willing to help and the whole Campus as well!
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.
