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.

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.
As far as community colleges go, this school is top notch. There are a lot professors who are wayyy better than the average community college teacher. If you take the right teachers you will get just as good of an education as a 4 year college. Also if you're looking to transfer to a 4 year college the school makes it easy and helps you out a lot. It's a commuter school, and almost everyone works full or part time, so don't expect parties or a social scene. Clubs aren't that great, and it's sort of cliquey. Academically, it's hit and miss. There are some professors who are just in it for the money and don't put effort into teaching, however, there are also professors who are the most extremely passionate, overqualified and underrated people I know. If you go to this school, CHECK RATE MY PROFESSOR. It will make or break your experience.
