This school has its ups and downs, just like any other campus. My biggest concern is the rush to get classes its nearly impossible to get classes on this campus! Once class registration opens, they're literally gone. The wait-list is full, and you probably have to wait until the first day of class to hopefully get a chance to get in. Priority is the only thing that's going to save you the hassle and stress of trying to get classes. Like many schools in California, its pretty diverse and that's always a beautiful thing to see. Buildings are being updated so the campus looks pretty new. The library is currently being constructed on. So the updated buildings adds to the overall ambiance. As far as professors, I suggest using ratemyprofessor.com so you can weed out who you do and don't want. Otherwise take a chance, and see who you get.
Review Chabot College
My college experience at Chabot College is going really well in my first year as a freshman. I had joined a Program called Aspire to help me succeed in my goals, planning ahead for my classes, transfer to a four year university, doing scholarship research, and FAFSA. My major in Chabot College is Music because when I first started experiencing music by singing and playing guitar, I really enjoyed it and it makes me to learn more about it for example music theory. My music teacher is a really good teacher to me because he teaches the elements of music and the history of it for example Renaissance and Baroque Music. Also the rest of the teachers they are really nice and helped me to succeed in their class. I've really loved college a lot cause it helps me focus more on my work in class, more responsibilities, making new friends, and participating in more extra-curricular activities.
Great school if you're undecided or not 100% sure about your career path. Also great for those who are looking for licenses and certificates and don't wish to pursue a degree. The school is out of date, but the administration is slowly rennovating the campus. Plenty of student activity. Gym and athletic facilities available for students who sign up for specific classes. Overall, great school that just needs a few upgrades.
