At CRC I've had nothing but good experiences. The professors really help you and although they too have busy schedules, they want you to do well and take that time for their students. I repeated the tough science courses that I failed at the other school and passed! The professors provide knowledge to a level that is easy to follow and understand and also create critical thinking opportunities. Each class I've taken, all different professors, have been this way, and the excitement they express in their subject is inspiring and that helps motivate me to do well. The campus is easy to navigate and all staff as been helpful through my time in attendance. I had surgery at the beginning of the year and as I started to learn to walk again, a member of campus police saw me with my crutches and offered to give me a ride to my car which made me feel safe.
Review Cosumnes River College
Cosumnes River College is a community college in Sacramento, CA. It has a student body that averages 14,000 students a year. It has a main campus with one additional campus site in Elk Grove, CA as an extension of its existing facilities. Due to the high amount of students, many find it difficult to secure general education classes they require. However, classes needed for specific Associate Degrees are not available at all times. Specific classes are not provided due to lack of professors teaching the subject, available class times, or lack of student/school interests in the subject. As a student, I have found frustration in getting the classes I need. However, the faculty and resources for me to succeed are always provided. Despite the drawbacks of the college, Cosumnes River College puts as much time and resources to help as many of their students succeed in their educational and life goals.
My first semester at CRC was very tough as is any freshman's first year. It was the point that when I found out some professors do care and some don't. As I went along I continued to struggle at some points which led me to being on academic probation. Actually last Thursday I finally met someone, a counselor, who really wants you to succeed, not just in school, but in life as well. His name is Mike Chapelle. He helped me gain a new, more positive aspect of school. There is also another caring person of CRC that I've had the honor to meet, professor Margaret Parillo. That is a professor that I can say really cares and is there to help you no matter what. So these are my positive views of CRC. Ideas for improvement can start in the counseling center (the secretaries) they can sometimes be rude when they should be there to help guide you before you meet a counselor. Safety on campus MOST DEFINITELY NEEDS to be improved.
