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.

I truly read the yelp reviews to confirm that this is the school I wanted to go to.
They are truly the best which includes fees and also the quality of education they provide is excellent. No Fluff! Just what you need to master the skills and pass the exam. It was such a blessing to find this school. Ms.Kay is a sweetheart. She taught our batch, she is the best.
First day I got in, I was a lil nervous but Ms. Kay came in after the orientation and started teaching us and the rest was history....
We all passed the exam thanks to Ms.Kays awesome notes and guidance.
Again don't look any further if you are looking to become a Phlebotomist. The best deal, easy to understand and also you finish off quick.
This school is like a second home to me, the teachers are very welcoming and would go out of their time to help me succeed. Teachers from this college care about students well being and safety. This college is located in a safe area where students are most likely not harmed. This community college has the second highest students transferring rate. Elac has good job opportunities such as job fairs, and job filers. This school has massively improved here are starting to build more college building and reducing bungalows. They are also starting to provide more classes that have never been offered there before as a way benefiting students. Elac's is big on Art, Technology, Music, and Kinesiology. If you live in Montebello, East Los Angeles, Boyle Heights, Huntington Park, Bell or South LA, I would recommend Elac if you are looking for a school around your area.
