Chemeketa Community College Reviews
I attended half a year at Chemeketa and enjoyed my experience there. All of my professors seemed well educated in their area of expertise and were kind and caring. I chose my professors based off of reviews online and I highly recommend doing the same, as I liked all of my profs! I liked my advisor, as she was very helpful in helping me figure out my classes and my future by assisting my transfer experience.
When I was scared to go off to college, Chemeketa was a nearby, and very affordable option that I learnt most of my high school classmates ended up going to for the same reason. With friendly staff with very flexible visiting hours, some even offering their phone numbers and reminding students they check their email daily, you were never just floating. The accessibility was essential as many students, including myself, worked out the kinks in their writing habits from high school and were given new tools. The school also placed emphasis on using math and writing tutoring where staff and senior students provided aid where a student may be stuck. They even had an online writing help should getting to campus, for those who have work right after class, be an issue. It was the best possible introduction to the college scene, providing any and all aid so that as I now enter my first 4-year university, I have the tools and confidence to start off the year well.
Most instructors there are understanding and willing to work with students on deadlines and skill improvements. Some staff were incredibly helpful with study skill building and recognition of good and bad student habits. There are a few teachers whom are overbearing and do not think highly of their students. If anything, I would like to see teachers become more involved with the students work. Also, the Counseling Center does not quite explain everything about how to apply for scholarships, financial aid information, Work Study, and other topics which would seem extremely helpful for students.
