My experience at East Los Angeles Community College has been a very good one. The professor's are there to help and guide you, as well as the tutoring services provided on campus. There are also many informal events for students to help guide them through college. The upgrades are a major plus to the campus!

I just graduate from East Los Angeles Community College and it was a great experience because it prepare me for the University. ELAC is a great community college to do your general education or earn an AA degree. It prepares students to transfer to a 4 year University. The professors in ELAC want to see their students successes and are willing to help student. The college has programs that help students financially or academically. For example, they offer free transportation from the main campus ELAC in Monterey Park to ELAC South Gate campus were they offer more classes.
I'd have to admit but in the beginning of my enrollment I didn't feel content for ELAC as I do now. When I first started going, the campus was in heavy construction, and what wasn't in construction did look pretty bland. But the professors for the most part have always been excellent, along with the administration there. Yet as time passed, there's been less and less construction, and great improvements to the campus such as; student life, campus structure, food, and services for the students.
