I love this school! Its close to where I live. They have a parking garage for students. The professors are very nice and helpful. They have learning labs where you can walk in and get tutored in whatever subject you need help in. They have counselors that are patient and there to listen to your concerns. The financial aid line is long, but its worth waiting in that line. They have a cafeteria with healthy and non healthy options to choose from.

This college is biased toward minority students trying to get into an allied health program. As everyone knows you need to take Biology as a part of any allied health career degree program. I looked at the course offerings and the West and Northwest regional centers (which enroll predominately minority students) only offer about 12 biology courses combined, while the mostly white Northeast Regional Center offers over 30 biology courses. When I asked the Department Head of biology why this was last year she told me that it was not her decision. She was pretty arrogant about it too and really did not want to discuss this issue. Somebody should look into this situation.
So far, I have had a positive experience with this college. As an incoming freshmen, I have noticed that the enrollment process was very simple and fast. Every time I had a question about the admission process or any other inquiries, they were very nice and professional when wandering them. The tuition is very cheap compared to the surrounding colleges as well. The only complaint I would have is that it is sometimes very hard to get in contact with the financial aid office over the phone. You would have to go to the campus directly
