This college is soo close to my house! Academics wise, this school is great! They got good professors, a tutoring center, a math center, a computer lab and a library. Diversity isn't too bad at CRC. I do see a lot of Caucasians, but I also see many Asians, African Americans, Latinos, etc. I'm not really into sports and don't really no any athletes at CRC, so I cant answer that. As previously stated, this college has good professors! Of course you may find some that aren't that great here and there, but for the most part all my professors here haven't been too bad. This college has no housing. There are apartmnets available acorss the college, but that's it. As for safety, their is a Los Rios Police station on campus. Often there are police officers patrolling campus. CRC has some incidents regarding safety, but those mainly occur at night. I would say that it's mostly safe and I do feel safe when on campus. This college isn't expensive at all. I would say its worth the money.

As a computer science major, the staff of the computer science courses are extremely limited and do not readily prepare prospective transfer students for their intended universities. These professors treat their jobs simply as that: a job. Rather than focusing on helping students learn the material and working with them on improving their skills, they simply encourage students to learn from their own textbooks by themselves, in which they mainly are there to facilitate tests. As for the overall school beyond these major courses, there is a limited amount of classes offered, resulting in students having to enroll in classes outside of the school. However, my experience with this college's counseling department has been nothing short of phenomenal. I have received great guidance from many of the counselors where they all seem passionate in helping the students succeed.
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.
