I attended Las Positas College through the Concurrent Enrollment Program. I was very pleased with all my professors throughout my experience because they provided incredible learning opportunities and demonstrated unparalleled passion for their students and academics. I really enjoyed meeting all then new students from all different walks of life, and would definitely consider attending again! Overall, the professors and the students are what makes the college, and Las Positas is definitely worth its incredibly affordable cost.

Las Positas is a great campus - they are doing a lot of renovations, so the campus is continuously improving. Most all of the teachers I have had have been amazing, and they care about your future. They have lots of clubs and programs people can enroll in. The cafeteria has pretty decent food - I'm a sucker for their ham and cheese sandwiches! Their library has laptops the people can rent out overnight, as well as a lot of computers to do your work. There are lots of phone charging stations around campus, which come in handy. Parking can be harder to find in the afternoon, but if you take morning classes or night classes you will have no trouble finding a spot!
I love Las Positas! The campus size is very accommodating, the staff and teachers are wonderful, and the resources are useful. I am satisfied with my experience so far and I think it was a great stepping stone from high school instead of going straight to a 4 year university. What I would like to see though is more parking spots because it can get very packed during semesters and more requirements to see counselors because I know that would push me to talk to them more than I currently do.
