I received two Associates of Art from CCC, and I couldn't be more thankful for my time spent there. The quality and passion of the instructors in every field was obvious; each bringing to the table not only their expertise, but a strong desire to teach as well. The faculty came from all walks of life, from many different cultures and ethnicities, and the student body was just as widespread if not more so. Student and city run cultural and heritage events happened frequently, the Deaf student support was heavily present and accounted for, even old buildings were ADA compliant - and not just for wheelchairs. I met some of my most influential instructors at CCC, and I couldn't be more grateful for it.

The diversity, sensitivity, and SafeZone training CCC provides for faculty is also one of the most thorough, and most engaging I've encountered yet. I was lucky enough to get to transition from student to (volunteer) worker, and it was a joy from both sides.
Review Chemeketa Community College
Chemeketa has some great professors that are easy to get along with and have time to help you outside of class. The food on the campus tastes great and is honestly my favorite place to get fries. There is no party scene here although the local area it's in is convenient to getting to another place nearby. There are great diversity and acceptance here. The academics are great because teachers are willing to help, there is a lot of after and out of school services for tutoring that is free. The student life is great because they offer cool clubs and the opportunity to run your own, it is mostly quiet and a friendly environment and there are many areas to relax and wait for your next class or study. The safety is great because there is a public safety booth where they are able to escort you to your car and such to make sure you're safe. The athletics is great here because they provide services and clubs available to a lot of different sports.
Although I haven't been going for too long, all the professors I have had have been great. I measure my class quality by the quality of my professor.

One professor I had "wasn't about" the grades. He believed we'd do our best, he'd give us good grades, and if we didn't truly deserve them, we would know it. It was his way of both respecting us and gaining respect. I think I wasn't alone in feeling very comfortable in my classroom environment that term. I still worked hard in that class, trust me, but I feel like it was still an easy A.

Another professor I had was kind and very non-judgemental, which we were all grateful for, since we were trying to learn a foreign language, and pronunciation was difficult. She had a lot to cover for that class and taught us efficiently but not overwhelming ly.
