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 is a great school. It is an affordable place to attend and the education received is excellent. The professors are always kind and available to meet with students who have questions about the material taught, as long as you visit them during office hours. The student population is very diverse and the campus has a safe and secure feel to it. If you are a student who is unsure on what career path you want to follow, the counselors are very helpful in providing an educational plan and assisting you in searching for a career path that suits the student. Even if you already have a career path, the counselors make sure that you stay on track and provide an education plan that allows the student to transfer to a four-year university.
