College of the Desert Reviews
Review College of the Desert
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.
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".
Many of my professors are very reliable, friendly, and amazing. I do not regret going to college after high school it was one of the best discussions I made. It's honestly not as bad as people say it is. There are good professors, a lot of academic programs. The main campus is in Palm Desert , so it's close to the mall, the library pretty good location to me and it also has other campuses in Indio, Mecca etc. COD has clubs, student government. It's cheap and offers financial aid! Overall I made a good choice.
