Chabot College Reviews
Rating 3.73 out of 5 527 reviews
Though the admissions process was very confusing especially since I'm an out of state student, my experience so far has been great! I joined the UMOJA program and the teachers are very supportive and takes time to help each and every student.
Chabot is a great college if you are looking for a stepping stone to greater heights, the teachers I've had have been exceptional and I haven't experienced a "bad" teacher or class.
Professors have been very flexible with office hours and are very good at providing additional materials to help students succeed in their online studies. They are also understanding of students’ job and life outside school and are willing to accommodate according to their times.
The overall environment is nice. Students are very friendly and are hardworking. Faculty are also very friendly and willing to help as much as possible to help you in your studies as well as meeting academic goals.
The community is very welcoming and they are willing to help you reach your goals into getting into a school of your choice to transfer to. The faculty and staff do their best to support students into reaching their goals.
The professors here are very kind and understanding of student struggles as they can all share similar stories that they've gone through. I have switched my major from Biology, to Real estate, and now to Business Administrations and all the counselors I have talked to have been so patient with me and give me lots of important information regarding transferring to universities such as UC Davis or UC Berkeley and their requirements for specific majors.
At first, the online learning experience was a struggle for me and everyone included who had to switch to zoom university. However, the teachers at Chabot still kept everyone smiling and entertained, more specifically the math department which was the last class I thought would be fun! The coursework is not hard either, they are easy on students for the most part and are very patient with them.
Overall, I have had a pretty good online class experience so far. For some teachers, the sudden change in teaching/learning environment was a challenge. Performing and art classes were particularly hard to do online. I took voice lessons and the experience itself was an incredible challenge, both technically and educationally. Most teachers did not require to do closed book exams, which removed the challenge of remembering concepts that were taught. One of my professors required a live proctored exam. These exams were especially difficult but it helped me to memorize and retain the course content. So far during Covid-19 I have only physically gone to the college for in-person labs. Other than that I have been 100% online. Since I was home-schooled for my entire life before college, this was not a challenge for me, but it was a little difficult to transition online at first with professors who have never done it before.
When I started my college journey at the age of 16, I had no idea what to expect. I was worried that I would have a hard time fitting in with the college community. Thankfully, Chabot made it easy for me to begin my journey as smoothly as possible. I really appreciated the focus on diversity and I felt as if the college directed the students to be themselves. The teachers were really reliable and I could tell that they cared about the students success and drive for achievement. However, there are a few things that I would change. I would prefer there to be more lights on campus, for night-time students. I would also prefer cleaner classrooms themselves. As for the teachers and students, I would like a more professional structure for deadlines. There seems to be a lot of grace, which can be good for students who have a lot on their plate, but it also reduces the challenge that will prepare us for a 4-year college.
Overall, the online learning experience was fairly good. Most of the professors adapted rapidly to the new system. a new resource was provided in the form of lecture recordings.
I took online classes at Chabot both fall 2020 and spring 2021. I had really nice professors who weren't so hard on assignments. I enjoyed the classes I took. I used Canvas for online classes and found it really easy to use thanks to all the extra help chabot gave via their website to help newbies with it.
I enjoyed my online classes, I used Canvas for them. It was really easy to use and manage. The professors I had were also really nice to have.
Just recently I started taking online courses. It did take me awhile to get use to. Now it's pretty easy. Most of my teachers were pretty fast replying back to emails if I had questions.
I have had many wonderful professors here at Chabot, and they never fail to be considerate when it comes to home and family issues that can cause stress on the student.
I feel all of my professors did great in trying to keep us interested and focused while distant learning
I transferred to Chabot from a college in Arizona to finish up my general education requirements. My whole experience with the college has been online because of the virus, but it has been good so far. My teachers have been considerate of things going in the students personal lives because of the changes and have been light on the coursework.
All of my experience with the college has been online but I enjoyed it that way because it gave me the freedom to do work at my own pace. My teachers did not assign a heavy workload because they know with people being home, or working, and because of the virus that a heavy workload would just add more stress.
