Just surfing the internet to recommend a community college for a friend working at Panera's in Glendale, Ca. I came across ELAC and recalled my own experiences when I attended there several to many years ago. I can only image how much more the college has improved for students today. After I finished the 2 yr program I went on to further my studies at UCLA, it was a difficult transition but manageable & I graduated. I think had it not been for the professors, counselors & administrators, my eyes would not have been opened wide enough to see the future before me. ELAC was a good place to start!

My experience in East Los Angeles College has been one of the most greatest experiences! I love how the professors very caring, and I love the food. The programs that they have are very helpful. For example “La College promise” is a great program that helps and really cares about their students. They give to students book grands, and the coaches are always trying to help you when ever their students need them. Also, Eops” is another program that helps a lot when it comes to pay for our books and giving counselors to keep track of our progress. Overall, being in this college has been an amazing experience that i can happily help whoever if they need my help.
Upon realizing I was going to attend East Los Angeles College, I wasn't exactly thrilled as I had always heard negative opinions of the campus. Attending ELAC has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I've been lucky enough to have been taught by passionate professors that truly enjoy their job so much so that my stat's professor taught me the importance of math. In the same way, i've made great friends here too. 10/10, would recommend!
