This is my first year attending El Camino College, and so far the experience I have endured has been wonderful! I am apart of the KEAS program on campus and the counselors and tutors have been so helpful to me. My current counselor checks up on my daily and is always pushing me to do my absolute best. The staff at El Camino are very encouraging to the students on transferring to a four-year University or graduating with a degree. I'm very pleased with my decision of attending a community college first, specifically El Camino because the school is academically good and the professors are great.

El Camino Community College has been one of the best decisions I have made about my higher education. It has been far more affordable to attend this school than it would have been to attend a four-year university. The professors that I have had the pleasure of knowing are encouraging of students and although counselors are under-employed, they usually find time for you any way.
Have I mentioned the buildings? Quite a few areas of the campus have been remodeled during my time as a student at El Camino, and the results are impressive. New technology for classrooms, more classrooms, and nice bathrooms! The changes on campus have definitely made me feel good about where some of my money must be going.
The professors I've had here are really friendly and understanding. Some go out of their way to ensure that you're learning and understanding, especially during office hours. The campus is beautiful and clean, and the clubs are very nice as well. Sometimes he clubs are in the middle of the day, which might not be best because many classes are in the middle of the day, but everyone is always willing to help. Many resources are available to students, from free tutoring to even a language lab.. The only problem I can find is with registration/administration at times. Once the website allowed me to take a class that required a prerequisite, even though I had not completed them requirements.. My friends also have problems with financial aid or getting a book when it's sold out in the bookstore.. It's still a good college, but the portal is indeed a mess..
