This school is like home to me! The students are diverse from all different ethnic and social backgrounds, which is honestly great when it comes to breaking some of those social barriers. The campus is small enough to get used to during the first week or two, and the staff and teachers are super supportive. I've moved a lot in the past couple years. Cosumnes River is the fourth community college I've attended, and it is my favorite! Now that I'm getting close to transferring to a 4-year university, what I wish most is that I could stay at Cosumnes to get my Bachelor's degree. Unfortunately, that is not possible. I am just lucky to have had such an amazing experience here.

I am currently taking summer classes at Cosumnes River College, and I have learned so much so far! The classes that I am taking are Political Science 301 and History 313. The professors that I have for these classes are pushing me out of my comfort zones when it comes to reading and writing, and keeping up with the news. My professors are very inspirational and hard-working and are motivated to help students succeed. Also, the staff and counselors are very kind. I highly recommend attending this school since the professors and staff are very kind, and there are many extracurriculars available.
Cosumnes River College is a fantastic stepping stone between high school and state college or a university. If you choose the right professors and the right extracurriculars, you will find a phenomenal community to support you through your time there. However, avoid the overpriced food! It's more expensive than university food and not worth the money.
