Helps you prepare very well for a 4-year. Lots of interesting people from different backgrounds that are working hard to earn their degrees and transfer out. Campus is undergoing construction to build newly improved department buildings, and they look very promising!

El Camino College contains great professors who truly care about their students' IN high school I was not the best student. I graduated with a 2.9 GPA and I had nothing going for me but because of El Camino and the resources they provide through great professors, activities, clubs and organizations I am now a 4.0 student about to transfer to one of the best schools in the country!
Personally I love El Camino and this community college help me a lot with saving money. The staff at the administration are really helpful and nice. The students here mind their own business so they’re just there to focus on getting their degree there. The campus food is okayish but I definitely recommend getting food at the food trucks vs at the campus cafe. The professors are amazing and they teach at other UC’s and States schools so basically you’re getting the same education but a cheaper price!
