Undoubtedly the most diverse campus in the Peralta Community College District. Down to earth teachers who become more like friends. You can definitely get a solid education here but have to do the research to find the best instructors. The counseling department is top notch. Originally pursuing two AA degrees, I am now set to transfer with five. For anyone who comes here, make the most of your resources, build relationships with your instructors and don't be fearful to interact with your classmates. There is no reason anyone cannot succeed here unless they let themselves get in the way.

PS: I highly recommend to not take any night classes at Laney. The area around the school is high in crime at all times of the day and it does not get any better once it gets dark. This does not apply to people who people who are trained in martial arts, may have a conceal/open carry weapons permit and or can successfully defend themselves no questions asked.

instructors are the best!
Students should come to study at Laney College, because it has been a good school since it started. Furthermore, Laney offers fun activities such as swimming, volleyball and dancing classes. In addition to that, they have great teachers that are always helping us with our homework. Also, the campus has a learning centre where useful books and other resources are available. In conclusion, I believe that Laney is one of the best schools to study at, because of its many educational opportunities and helpful staff.
Nice college, I appreciate the little things, but they are not very helpful financially. Just imagine during this pandemic they had a $500 accommodation scholarship to assist people so that they can add to their rent money to help reduce the cost of rent, yet they closed it even before some students could apply. That’s very sad. Why open the scholarship to only a few? They should have not opened the scholarship at all in the first place. Secondly, the free laptop they are giving away is so cheap, about $149 for one to purchase a “refurbished laptop” with it. Of what use is a laptop if it won’t last long? For a refurbished laptop has way less guarantee over a new one. Please help students or don’t help at all. For what doing is worth doing well.
