Las Positas College Reviews

Las Positas College is a beautiful college surrounded by vineyards and fields. The college is located on a hill away from the busy streets and town. If students commute to Las Positas College, the off ramp is right down the street from the college. There is a lot of parking, which allows students to arrive to class on time. The professors are great, I have never had any problems with them. The food on campus is delicious and there are different varieties so you never get bored of the food choices. One thing I would watch out for is the counselors, make sure you go to two different counselors because sometimes you will get the wrong information about the classes you need to take. Its better to be safe than sorry! Everything else about the campus is great!

I really liked the teachers! I had some great teachers who really engage with students and make sure that we get what we are learning. I use RateMyProfessor.com, a website to search for teachers to see if they are the right kind of teacher to your specific kind of learning ways. So far all of my teachers were rated high with positive comments. I enjoyed my classes, and I actually liked going to school. My experience there was great! The students are nice and the staff is very helpful. I would recommend this school to every one that I know!
I really enjoy Las Positas! Everyone is very friendly and the staff is very helpful. The only reason I am not giving Las Positas 5 stars is because some of the professors I have had are not exactly the best. They don’t explain things very well then expect you to just know everything they have taught 2 seconds after they’ve taught it. Aside from those select few professors I’ve had, Las Positas is great!
