College of the Desert Reviews
For the most part, everyone on campus is really friendly. I would love if there was more student involvement at College of the Desert, seems like vast majority of students show up for class and leave when class is over unless there's a break between their classes. I've had such a great experience with staff, especially with the DSPS staff. They are all extremely helpful! However, at College of the Desert it is hard to enroll in classes, hopefully the school hires more professors to help new coming students enroll in the classes they need.
College of the Desert has many programs to offer. They have many transferable degrees in my case I am on the process of finishing up a Business Administration Associates Degree (transfer), which will help me transfer out to a Cal State . College of the Desert also has great counselors who are always willing to help students out with either university applications or student planning to achieve the degree or certificate they wish to have. One unique trait about this college is the great professors we have at the campus.All of the professors for the business class have a great amount of knowledge and experience. College of the Desert also has many outside opportunities for community service hours or internships. In addition this campus has many programs you can going for financial help if you need it. This school really cares about their students and want them to succeed.
The professors and counselors at COD are fantastic! They all genuinely care about the students and their success. There are so many opportunities for tutoring and additional studying for those of us who need a little more explanation than what we can get out of an hour lecture. Most of the professors also have office hours with an open door policy to answer any questions or customize a study plan for students to be successful. I highly recommend this college to anyone going back to school after taking a few years off to do "life".
