Del Mar College Reviews
Del Mar College is a good school for continuing education. The education is good and the professors do care about the learning progress of the students. However, I would like to see more student activities and clubs around the campus. I know that it is hard because the majority of students are parents and people with either part-time or full-time jobs so they are busy all the time. But it would be nice to see more people participating in community projects and extra-curricular activities that are not necessarily online. This will create more connection and unity among students and bring about a better experience for students. Besides, I would love if Del Mar improves its cafeteria, improving its food and offering more food for students with more working hours
What I like about Del Mar are the professors! Majority of them care about their students succeeding. It may seem more difficult than other community colleges and maybe even some Universities but I believe it's because they push you to your educational limit in order to prepare you for your major and future. Del Mar College also makes people feel very welcome and always has events and different types of classes and aids to help students with work they find difficult. While I know they're doing construction to better the campus, I do wish it wasn't so frequent.
I took all online my first semester because of the Covid-19 pandemic. All teachers posted expectations on their syllabus pages. The instructors offered ways of contact by phone, video-calling, or e-mail. They were generally really good about responding. However, from time to time some didn't respond as fast due to large amount of questions on assignments. I would say as a whole, the on-line experience was beneficial because it allowed many to learn remotely with ease.
