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!
Review Las Positas College
My experience at Las Positas College is very enjoyable. I appreciate the culture that the campus embodies. The people are somehow all very kind and welcoming, while also being more secluded, to themselves in comparison to high school. The campus is beautiful and quiet, which makes for every area being a pleasant place to study. The most impressive thing about Las Po is the accessibleness of the staff. The administration as well as professors are very easy to communicate with and they want to give you the tools to succeed. Overall, it has so far been very easy to be apart of the Las Positas College community.
Great for those looking to save money and get general ed out of the way. If you wish to transfer to a CSU or UC, this is the school for you. Also an excellent choice for those who just want a bit of higher education to have on their belt for the future. Amazing resource center to help you find your path!
