Chabot College Reviews
The professors and classes are very straightforward and very concise! The students are helpful and there are many resources that are available to take throughout the semesters! One of the things I would consider would be more extracurricular activities and more clubs! Otherwise, it has been a great experience overall!
Great instructors, many course options, diverse student body. I have taken a wide variety of courses in a short amount of time. Two of my early childhood development classes were with the same instructor and I loved everything about her. My yoga instructor was also wonderful. My biggest complaint is just in regards to their administrative departments like Admissions and Records, Financial Aid, those departments are slow and you have to take care of most things in person at the offices. Even ordering a transcript cannot be done online.
Coming out of high school, the safest option was for me to go to a junior college and do my general education instead of going straight to a university. Not only did Chabot College have counselors that helped guide me along the way, the school also helped me with financial aid basically making my first two years of college free. Although there are many great things about junior colleges, there are still things where Chabot could improve on. The only important inconvenience I had with Chabot would be the time it took to schedule an appointment with a counselor; walk-ins for meetings are very slim.
