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.
I believe the online courses depend on professors. Throughout my experiences, it was much easier and simple for me. Many people think that if they take the online courses, they would have a problem with contacting their professors, but I always had professors who care about their students a lot, so I did not have any problem with it. It is only a problem for me since I procrastinate a lot, but I think it is just an excuse for me!
