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.

At the beginning of this year at Chabot I was on academic probation with a 1.8 gpa. Looking back to how much Chabot has helped me grow as a person this year has been phenomenal. This past semester I got all A’s in all of my classes after changing my attitude in school. My professors have helped me engage in my learning as well as the resources that are available for me to do better in school. Looking forward I can see that I made the right decision to come to Chabot form my former university in hopes to go back and finish what I started at UCLA. I still have one more year left before I graduate from Chabot but I know I can do it going forward. I can tell the faculty at Chabot really care about my success as a student. Going forward I would like to see Chabot listen to student feedback a little bit more in hopes to improve the way things work. I can’t wait for next semester and to continue my success as a student!
Chabot is good for what the college it is, a community college. You save a lot of money, it is convenient in that it is in the middle of hayward so that anyone in the vicinity can go, and that it is diverse. They offer a lot of the classes needed in order to get an associates and also the pre-requisites to transfer into a University. They have teachers and counselors that care about their students, and the student life is pretty active. They are open to joining clubs, workshops, and sports teams. It is great place for meeting lifelong friends along the way, as we endure hardships and joy together. This can be found during school or extracurricular work. I would have to say Chabot serves its purpose thoroughly.
