Contra Costa College is a decent Community College. They recently finished building new buildings that make the campus feel modern and not ancient, although they have old buildings such as the AA building which feels stuffy and dirty with a classroom full of students. But overall, walking around campus feels modern. All the professors in the college are great and caring(use ratemyprofessor.com as a guide). Classes are cheap and are of great value, especially if you plan on transferring to a four year college. The food they provide is also decent, but cheap(especially if you go to pronto). If you are looking for a quick snack, the bookstore may be able to help fulfill your hunger. 2 gripes I have about CCC are the safety and student life. Generally speaking, CCC is very safe during the day, but if you are planning to take night classes, be aware that you might get robbed. My car also received damage to my windshield, due to a mentally ill person throwing a bag towards my car (day)
Review Contra Costa College
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.
When I applied to Contra Costa College I thought it was going to be a bad campus because of the location it is at. Also, because of the old campus. When the spring semester came around I had classes in the new buildings which are amazing. The professors are so good at teaching and they are really helpful. There is also a lot of tutoring available and lots of opportunities as well as help to transfer or graduate on time. Coming to college here changed my perspective a lot on life. Students are really nice and helpful as well.
