Las Positas College - My experience at this community college has shown to be very enticing and eventful. This college has a variety of beneficial and opportunistic courses; tying in the environment and staff allocates a superb learning environment. For me, the most decisive and helpful assistance I could have received was from the Student Counselors. These Counselors have put in a lot of time into aiding, re-looking, and assisting in any way possible; I know that I would have had a significantly more difficult time with my education planning, without their guidance. The Instructors/Teachers have delivered high-quality education; also giving ample time and communication to individual students who need additional assistance. I have thoroughly enjoyed continuing my education at Las Positas and I am excited to still be continuing my education in nursing at the facility!

Going to Las Positas College was a great experience. The professors were very good and always offered resources to help their students succeed. The campus, as well as the surrounding area felt very safe. There was also diversity among students which is great. The school also has a lot of clubs and organizations including ones that are major related or hobbies. Personally, joining the business club was really beneficial! I made a lot of new friends and it helped me develop skills that are applicable to every day life.
I enjoy studying at Las Positas College. They have a great curriculum and professors that help students reach their goals. They also care about their students at Las Positas College. They have free health care services such as TB tests, physical tests, counseling, and have free women health care for students. Also, the tutoring center is helpful if you need help. Lastly, there is also a free grocery for students every month. Thus, my experience at Las Positas has been great!
