I entered into Fullerton College from Irvine in 2015, not knowing anyone. I quickly made friends through the Transfer Achievement Program, with seeing them in multiple of my "TAP" classes that only we were allowed in. I got more involved in my akamdeics and clubs more than I did in high school. Every professor I have ever had was more than qualified and brought a fresh and new perspective on a subject and in life. This school is not made for your "social life" per se, more for academics and getting to the next level (transferring). I would argue, though, that many do graduate with their AA and end there, which is a viable option for many. Personally, my goal has always been to transfer. I am a psychology major and look forward to helping others (as cliche as that sounds). Everyone has a story and deserve to be heard.
Review Fullerton College
It is pretty average for a community college. A few good things about Fullerton is that the clubs are very involved with students on campus and the school has many amenities for the students. On the down side, parking is very limited and the programs aren't always up to date without keeping the students informed. Something is currently happening with a certificate program I was enrolled in and without telling us, the heads decided not to continue with a new cohort/class the next semester. Many of us had to email several different people to find answers and we didn't receive them. We were told that we would get information about the situation in a year.
I am a transfer student from Chico State University and this is my second semester at Fullerton. Every campus has its downfalls but I feel that Fullerton College's pros outweigh the cons. The campus is beautiful with a fantastic library/copy center/computer lab in the quad and all new facilities. Its very clean and polished for a CC with some really cool buildings. The Student Center is very helpful with tutors to help you with any subject (research papers are killer so having a second opinion always helps). The cost of in-state tuition is incredibly affordable. The Cadena Transfer Center is an incredibly helpful tool you can utilize to get you transferred to the school of your dreams. The cafeteria is a good size with plenty of food options. The people are all really great and the professors are all very knowledgeable on their subject matter. Also being a 2 minute walk from downtown Fullerton is amazing! The shops and restaurants are great for hanging out with friends after class or having a fun night with friends.

Now for the cons. The counseling and advising here is a little lacking. I have gone into a counseling appointment and came out of it more lost than I was going in. I found that sitting at my laptop for a day figuring everything out myself was quicker. The website is usually updated enough to help you with any questions you may have.

TL;DR This school overall is in a great location, has a nice looking campus, great academics, and a great community of students and professors that will absolutely help you achieve whatever goals you have.
