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.
Review El Camino College
It makes me feel hopeful and excited about my future. It makes me feel like I am a part of something great, and my cohort feels like my family. Everyone supports each other and everyone pushes each other to succeed. The workload is appropriate and reasonable, curriculum is clear and direct, facilities are clean and abundant, and the school posts job opportunities through the MyEcc website. The school's health office also offers great free services, such as psychological counseling and chiropractic services!
El Camino College was a decent community college in comparison to the only other local option. The campus was well maintained and campus police was abundant especially at nighttime. The courses offered were diverse and sounded interesting, but a majority of the professors seemed uninterested in teaching their subjects or disregarded the student learning outcomes and just taught whatever they felt like. The weakest professors I experienced were in the math department. A statistics professor taught us how to use Excel and would test us on statistics, without ever teaching it.
