Contra Costa College Reviews
I really enjoyed my time at Contra Costa College. All the teachers really want you to succeed. They are knowledgeable, teach well, and are always their to help answer any questions you may have. Any questions they cannot answer or do not have the time to answer there is usually a student available to tutor. There is also a litany of courses that are offered which allows for one to get the general education they need for a myriad of different majors. What could be improved is the availability of classes and tutors for certain subjects especially in computer science courses.
I like how Contra Costa helped me with my future. The counselors helped me take the right classes that I need to be successful with my program and transferring over to a 4-year university. Contra Costa College also offers an abundance of help like tutoring. They also have a great athletic program. Since they remodeled the building it looks a lot better brand new and up to par. The teachers are amazing and haven't struggled because, of the teaching style that they provide.
I liked how connected the staff and activity planners got with the students; students would always know what opportunities and activities were going on because the college would post often in social media and post signs across campus. The staff are super friendly and helpful, and the campus is beautiful. My only downside would be the students themselves, they seem to take for granted the wonderful opportunities that are openly offered to them. The students can also be very loud and rude.
