A campus in a convenient area that boasts a diverse student body with a student population from Compton, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Carson, Gardena and so on. There are some fantastic professors here and some great counselors that will happy to help you stay on track and move on to get a certificate, graduate and/or transfer to a four year university as I did. This campus has a brand new library and several opportunities for students to move up in the world and be exposed to new and better things!
When I first heard about Compton college I was worried I wouldn't receive a good education just because of the name. However, this school has subscribed all my expectations and has me set to transfer next year. The first year experience program here is better than the other community college's programs, and every professor I've had really cares about their students. The campus itself is dated in the main wings but they will be updated within a few years. Since the campus is smaller than others, there is a lack of spaces and I've found that there will only be one professor available for one subject. This makes it hard to find classes that don't conflict with your schedule. Overall I'd recommend this school to anybody looking for a school who's professors and staff care for your success, and for those looking to get away from over crowded campuses.
