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.
Review Fullerton College
Fullerton College is a great community college! They offer many courses that are also accepted by universities. They also have many programs and opportunities to better your experience and increase your chances for transferring. The campus is also extremely close to Downtown Fullerton giving many options for food.
My experience at Fullerton College was excellent, beyond excellent. The faculty there were helpful and very resourceful, and also very supportive and friendly. The professors did an excellent job teaching the class, and they did care if a student was struggling with a particular subject or with the class. All but one of the professors I had were wonderful, and did their best to accommodate and offer extra help or advice. The students, although in their own focus, were friendly, even if you do not know them. I rate my overall experience 5 stars, and recommend this college to any person looking for college or just for fun.
