College of Alameda Reviews
Your in control of your own destiny. That's one of the biggest lessons I've learned in my life since enrolling in this school. I've been attending this school on and off since 2014 and its been everything I've made it out to be. When I first got here I would just go to class and go home or to work, I didn't put in the effort to become social and meet new people and I also didn't take my education seriously. However the moment I decided to focus and take my education seriously I began to see all of the tools and resources that here available to me , and I went from a 1.4 gpa to currently a 3.2. I realized that my teachers and councilors actually cared and they motivated me to not only become a better student but a better person overall.
My experience as a transfer student from College of Alameda, was pretty standard; I enjoyed the various options, in terms of majors and programs, one could complete. If I had to change anything, it would be the lack of communications between the various departments (Admissions & Records, Counseling, Financial Aid); it makes doing anything, as a student a drag, since no one is on the same page.
College of Alameda is a very calm place, you can go and sit down any where and you'll have peace. The professors are great, some can improve on explaining their selfs a bit more but in general the professors are good to get along with. The food here is pretty good, i really like the crispy chicken burger more than anything. Administrative office is very good at helping you if you have any questions, and the counselors help you out on choosing the classes you'll need for your major.
