Las Positas College Reviews

I haven't started any major specific courses nor advanced towards internships, but I learned some things from my general ed courses. The workload is not too bad actually. I do not recommend cramming though. Study your material and you get As & Bs. The professors always have office hours for additional assistance and it's very useful in my experience. For my major however, I have talked with visual communication professors and they gave me insight on classes and what to get out of majoring in visual communications. This really makes me look forward to taking v-comm classes!
Prior to enrolling into Las Positas, I was not looking forward to staying at home and spending my first few years at a community college. After the first semester, I could not have been more ecstatic to be going to school here! The professors are phenomenal and hands on, the counselors are continually trying to prepare you for transitioning into a new school, the study center and tutoring program is incredibly beneficial, and the honors program is achievable and inspiring. Overall, Las Positas Community College will always hold a special place in my heart because the school urges you to thrive. I highly recommend this school!
My school is small and calm, so students can focus on studying. Also, professors there have great knowledge and experts in each field, so students can learn very deeply. My favorite experience was taking classes called English as Second Language. Those are for international students, so I met many students from other countries. Its professor has a great teaching skills and English knowledge, so international students who passes the classes statistically can pass college-level English classes in 99% although native English speakers usually pass those in around 60%.
