I have taken a couple of music ensemble courses here during high school. The experience was really great! The conductors were amiable and fun but directed in a manner that made us learn so much about music and ensemble playing.
I can't share the full student's experience, unfortunately, as I am not fully enrolled.

College of Marin is a great school. The counselors and academic advisors are great and really want to help students transfer to 4-year colleges or achieve associate degrees. One difficulty is being able to schedule a time to meet with your academic advisor to set up your degree plan. Most teachers here are fantastic and very supportive. One downside is the math department. I have yet to see an amazing math professor for calculus or above. Student activity and involvement is pretty alive at this college; however, I have also met several students shy away from the clubs or honor societies due to the large load of extra work in order to participate.
I'm a returning college student after taking several years off and College of Marin has, for the most part, been my dream college experience. The counselors and professors have been amazing in helping me make decisions about my education and guiding me through the processes, highs, and lows of academia. I say for the most part because there have been a couple that I've encountered that seemed not to know what to do with themselves or the students, but I believe that is to be expected in any field, including education.

There are two campuses, and both are beautiful and exude a somewhat laid back environment, making them easy to adjust to and pleasant to be at. I may be slightly biased, but I also think that their Multimedia program is one of the best in California and the Multimedia faculty has worked hard to make it that way.
