Overall great community in Marin County, CA. The only complain I have some professors are not as willing to help (especially in Math) students succeed in the subject. Other than that, great school!

Classes are average, pretty basic stuff. Professors don't particularly care about the students and range from totally apathetic to totally incompetent. The students tend to be friendly. Many of them are from working-class or impoverished families and attend community college because of their financial need. For this reason, you see a lot of pretty smart, average students here. As I mentioned, the classes are average and the facilities are poor quality. However, there are lots of opportunities for financial aid and other support.
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.
