Contra Costa Community College is a very supportive school. There are some pretty great counselors here, the only downside is that there are now alot of students attending, and that in turn made the counselors really busy. The professors are awesome, and extremely professional. I feel like I am really being prepared for the university environment. The food is great. The space is great. I do not regret attending this community college in any way. I would highly recommend this campus to anyone who wanted to attend a great 2 year institution.
Review Contra Costa College
Though I prefer a traditional classroom experience, online classes make it easier to complete courses needed for the semester without changing much of one's work schedule. It is very convenient, and registration is very simple.
Since Contra Costa is a community college, the class sizes are small. This gives the professors chances to interact with the students more and give them better advice on how to succeed. Though most of the classes are relatively easy in coursework, it feels rewarding knowing that there is a professor that is there to help.
