Compton College Reviews
My name is Graciela Gomez, and I am a sophomore at Compton College. I plan on transferring to a 4-year institution by the Fall of 2020. I love Compton College, because the professors and administrators always have you're best interest at heart. I also love Compton College because it's very diverse and everyone on campus wants you to succeed. I am a student-athlete at Compton, and all the coaches on campus want the best for they're athletes, whether that is in the classroom or on the field. At Compton College the faculty is always willing to help any student with any problem they may have. Choosing Compton College was one of the best choices I have made, and with the help of others I will graduate in the spring of 2020.
There are great professors who care about your education and will help in what you need. As well as the admissions and records team in the office, they will help you in what you need. They will ensure that you get your problems fixed!
I love Compton College as it has a diverse group of students. As a minority myself, I feel more comfortable and welcomed. The professors and faculty here are great, they understand that many of us students do not have so much money to spend on books/resources, so they go out their way to try and provide us with resources. I just wish they were able to provide more classes, as I have to go to El Camino Torrance to take a couple of science classes.
