Cerro Coso Community College Reviews
Overall, Cerro Coso was a good school and gave me a chance to continue my education at a cheaper price. They have many great programs and classes which is always a great thing, to have different options. One thing I would change about Cerro Coso would be their counseling center. Everyone who attends school here knows they have to be their own counselor because they do not pay attention up there and there are many mess ups. Many students do not graduate in the two years they planned on because of the counselors which is very sad, I'm thankful I was not a victim to that. Overall, my personal experience was good and I avoided the counseling and became my own which helped me become more independent and look out for my education more.
Cerro Coso Community College has one of the most friendly and caring atmospheres that I have ever that the pleasure of experiencing. The campus looks nice and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The professors at this school are extremely nice and willing to work with students in order to help them succeed. There are also many different clubs and activities for students to partake in. Personally, the financial department has been the most helpful and kind to me. I have enjoyed my time already spent here and I look forward to the years I have to come. The college and people at the college are incredible and beneficial to academic success.
Cerro Coso Community College has many different campuses. I am currently at the KRV (Kern River Valley) campus and I love love love being here. It's a smaller campus and this allows for the professors to work with students more of a one on one atmosphere. There are tons of opportunities and services available to all students and I give this college 5 stars! I would give more if I could.
