Being enrolled at Chabot I have chosen to take majority of my classes online. It may seem overwhelming or intimidating but, once you are able to manage your time and stay updated with your class' material then that can set you up for success! I personally enjoy taking classes online because I am able to work and study at home but more importantly it helps me prioritize my time. Things have gotten overwhelming at times and depending on how many courses I am enrolled in at the same time it may seem impossible. Staying in contact with professors seems slightly easier as they are usually online to teach and have more time to spend helping you virtually which I have enjoyed and taken advantage of! I have always recommended taking online classes to my friends because of some of these reasons and I will most likely continue to take them throughout college!

Starting off at a Community College like Chabot is a great option for anyone looking to further their education! Chabot has a lot to offer in order to fit everyone's interests, set you up successfully for Transfer requirements, and your desired major. I enjoy taking classes here because it is convenient, diverse, and they have so much to offer when it comes to registering for classes. I have taken many GE classes and experienced so many different class environments which I appreciate. Majority of the teachers are there to help you when you need it on campus and online. Counseling fills up quick but, when you have a chance to sit down and get the help you need from the genuine counselors it's a sense of relief. The staff and resources have been helpful with any questions or concerns I've had through out my time at Chabot and have always seemed to tend to students needs!
Chabot has provided a great learning experience. I have been at Chabot for two years, and have found them to be a very accepting and encouraging institution. They are very inclusive and actively work to make a welcoming environment. The professors are usually very knowledgeable and helpful, and are prepared to help you succeed. I have made some great friends here as well as saved a lot of money, so I am very glad to have attended!
