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)

I currently go there, Im a sophomore in college now and I enjoy going there. Not for what they promote, its because they have teachers who actually want to see students succeed in the world. I love teachers who speak profoundly on things they studied that might help us in our daily walks of life. The college is one of most community college that is uniquely diverse, I believe everyone who goes there can find themselves and narrow down how it is important to go to college. I also like how the counselors of EOPS Program is very caring and try to understand students on our level. Sometimes needs that addition support that is not giving at home. I know from person experience, I take my education serious and I want to succeed. The counselors helped me narrow out a plan for me an till this day Im stilling going by it.
I got my AA degree from Contra Costa College in 2016. All my instructors including the ones from my major and my GE classes are very professional people. The campus was recently remodeled and it's beautiful. As it is located in the Bay Area you get to meet people from everywhere in the world which makes your college experience even more fun!
