My El Camino College experience was great. I have to be honest, the first year I found myself completely disoriented. I didn't set my heart on a specific major which resulted into taking a couple of unnecessary courses. It was hard for me to juggle two jobs and school at the same time but luckily, my counselor assisted me in getting a schedule together to "make it work" for my busy schedule. The counselors really want you to succeed and be the best you can be. I also really liked all my professors, they were always available during their office hours and encouraged student to see them whenever they had a question. Students were also a friendly bunch and readily available to help you if you were “lost” in campus. The only thing that was a little frustrating was the ongoing construction that never ends! This would be the only thing I would like to see change in the future, they really need to just finish.

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.
The school is amazing, I have had such memorable experiences there; although, the staffing could be better. It’s seems some professors are never prepared for class and sometimes don’t even know what they are teaching!
