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.
Review Your College
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.
If I could do this all over again I would want to see a better introduction to loans and maybe even help with deciding how to go into programs or what would be the best option for transfer programs and how that looks financial aid wise. My over all understanding of what college is realistically financially is poor and not due to a lack of trying to understand. After many misdirected phone calls, confusing and misleading emails, and short face to face interactions with staff, I see clearly that some form of education from staff to student needs to occur.
