Community College of Aurora Reviews

The Community College of Aurora is a wonderful place for many students to start their college career. It is helpful for the student who has not been in school for many years, works full-time, is unsure of their major, or recently graduated from high school. Community College of Aurora offers many classes that allows the students to either obtain the credits necessary to transfer to a four-year school. The school also offers many certificates as well. The smaller class-size is perfect for individualized attention. A huge lecture class of 300 students can be daunting and overwhelming for many students. The professors at Community College of Aurora are accessible to the students to ensure success.
Review Community College of Aurora
The teachers are great, they are always willing to help students achieve their goals and are very knowledgeable in the subject they are teaching. However, the advisors have not met my expectations. You never meet with the same advisor, and each one gives a different answer about which classes to take. I was advised to enroll in 2 different classes that did not even go towards my degree! The tuition here is cheaper than most community colleges, which is one of the reasons I selected the school. If I had to do it all over, I do not think I would choose this school again though.
I've been attending this school ever since I was a sophomore in high school, and now I'm 18 yrs old and I'm graduating with my Associates of Science degree in May. For being here for so long I can definitely say this is a great school. There's a diverse group of students as well as professors. The class sizes are small and therefore you can interact with everybody including your professor. There are a lot of clubs you can join and constant activities that you can participate in. Overall, if you're looking for a cheap way to complete two years and transfer or just complete a specific program, this is a great school to attend.
