I had a great experience in Cypress College! The programs I got involved in really helped me financially as well as academically. I really felt like I belonged here and the support I got through programs and the general facilities in the Learning Resource Center allowed me to climb from a mentality of being a "C" student to being an "A" student. More than just a place to finish my general education classes, Cypress College has helped me build a new, more determined mindset--I can get this degree, and I will.

Because of COVID 19 I ended up taking all my courses online, but I had experience with this because I have taken online courses in the past. My advice, stay organized when taking online courses! Write down your due dates and stay on top of your work don't wait till the 11:59pm deadline you will stress yourself out. Stay in touch with your academic advisor and use your resources.
I liked the campus, but I know some professors can improve on their patience and teaching. Some counselors and should also be wary of what courses a student needs to complete on their educational plan. The best thing about Cypress College was the STEM program. This community opened new leadership opportunities, so it was helpful to gain experience and build my resume more. I think the school should educate incoming students on sexual harassment because there have been a good number of sexual assault cases reports on campus. Students must feel safe in the environment before going to it. No student can focus on their studies in they're occupied worrying about their safety.
