The value of education that I am receiving at CRC seems quite fair. There are many valuable things that I have learned in some of the courses that I have attended so far, so I believe that the education I am receiving is worth the money that me and other tax payers paid for. However, in terms of the financial aid distribution, I do see a discrepancy between middle class students and lower-income students. The cost for each class without the BOG waver are hundreds of dollars, and students not eligible for certain grants or wavers feel the full blow of the expenses. However, because CRC is a community college, having financial aid as well as certain fees wavered is a advantage in terms of saving, especially for those who either want a formal education to expand their career path, or whether they want to save up money before venturing on to a university. The financial aid office here at CRC excels in helping students to take care of their questions as well as offer solutions. The other issue is that they are often undermanned, which results in long lines. Though it is remedied with how quick the consultations go with each student. For those that do not have financial aid, or even do have financial aid, work study is a great way to have an additional source of income to provide for your tenure here at CRC. Filling and applying for scholarships are a great way as well!

I loved all of my professors here at CRC. Maybe because I used rate my professor throughout the years and am an athlete and always got priority registration, so I always got the best of the best! It is a very relaxed school which is great for some who have a hard time focusing on academics when so much is going on. Overall, I will miss CRC when i transfer.
The school is a great site, newly renovated with the Winn Center. I love that there is a huge quad where students can study during the spring and summer, if the weather permits. I also admire that the library opens early and closes late, for there have been countless times when that was very resourceful for me. The only down side about the school is that the people that are employed in the financial aid office and the counseling office come off as very rude at times. I'm am referring to the staff that are working there part time. They need to be trained on how to properly interact and give proper service. For after all, they are getting paid.
