Canvas is such a great tool to communicate with your professor and peers online. Super straightforward! Of course, there will always be professors better than others when it comes to handling online classes. My favorite experience was with Professor Lisa Harrison. She was a LifeSpan Development professor & her online class structure was amazing. It was organized, communicative, manageable. Be careful when deciding what online classes to take! Do your research before deciding :)

When we hear about community colleges, it's so quick for us to judge. I was afraid of ending up in City College of SF because it's not a 4-yr university while some of my friends from high school ended up in UC's or State Universities. I didn't think about the advantages the community colleges have until I was halfway done with my prerequisite courses for Nursing. City College of SF is now free if you are a resident of SF, so why not? Im grateful for this opportunity, especially that they have a lot of resources to provide in order to help you transfer to a 4-yr university. It takes a lot of patience and there will be days full of "what-if's", but don't let that stop you. They have several supportive counselors, but you have to be wise on who's right for you to guide you. Take advantage of their resources! You won't regret it.
It's my first year at city, and I feel well prepared for it. My professors are understanding and clear with their syllabus and expectations. I'm aware of the many programs on campus, and take use of them. There's a free tutoring center with kind and intelligent tutors. The cafeteria food is made by students in the culinary program. If you plan on transferring from city to another college, join the Metro program! They expose their students to scholarship/grant opportunities, resources at city, and help you think about what you want to be in the future. Metro is also in the same building with metro tutors, computer labs, other services.
