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.

Environment at school is really uplifting, what I love about East Los Angeles College is the diverse set of environment in and the support there is amongst the staff, students and the community. I feel at home when I attend class I don’t feel out of place. I can’t say anything bad about the campus they have a lot of resources that many students are unaware! But I definitely recommend ELAC AND Encourgw all students to visit all the centers we have.
I am currently still attending East Los Angeles college and i would highly recommend coming here. The campus is beautiful and very big. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I have had problems with my financial aid and they have been nothing but helpful. A process that should take 2 months, they helped me in 3 weeks! It is close to a plaza with many restaurants and fast food so if you don't have a car, its 5 min walking distance.
