Cerro Coso Community College is your everyday college. As of now, the main building is getting remodel. Its a small college where if you do not go to the library you miss out on a lot of information and college activities. The professors and instructors are great. They are all willing to spend one on one time with you and if they are busy there is free tutors available everyone that can also help you. The location is out the way, on the edge of town, were almost all people have to drive or take the bus to be able to reach it. It is also up a hill which makes it that much more difficult to travel too. Besides vending machines, there is only one place to get food and it very basic food: sandwiches, coffee, soup, muffins, and frozen pizza make up majority of the food. There is plenty of diversity among the, but you typically see the same students everywhere as few students are involved with more with more than the basics.
Review Cerro Coso Community College
Cerro Coso is a good two year school. The Professors in the most part are very genuine and care about teaching and our education. Cerro Coso has an amazing welding program with wonderful professors. All the professor have done welding as a profession and have vast knowledge and skills. The classes at Cerro Coso are small, allowing the professor to interact more with the students. Unforanalty since it is a small college the advanced classes are only offered once a year, however on the good note, not many people take them so they don't fill up quickly. I have never had a problem getting into a class due to too many people signing up for them.
My overall experience at Cerro Coso Community School is great. I think it is a school that feels very welcoming and is easy to adjust to. I am very excited that I choose to stay in Mammoth and attend Cerro Coso mainly because personally I do not think I would have easily adjusted to a larger school and area. I have appreciated the help my professors and school have provided!
