Los Angeles City College Reviews

You're stalked by people on drugs walking the streets. The Sheriffs can be distracted on their cell phones. Most of the instructors care for their students but office hours can be challenging especially given the high traffic area that this college is located. Public transportation when riding solo is risky because of the massive homeless and gang problem in Los Angeles, especially if you take evening classes. You best eat before coming to the campus. You're surrounded by fast food from places such as Jack in the Box and Big Mama's Pizza. Good luck with ludicrous rents in LA/Koreatown.

Aside from the cons, you'll want a parking pass and tuition is pretty cheap for state residents. Reference RateMyProfessors and fellow academics if you want to survive. Diversity is plenty but beware, most people don't like to assimilate into the culture and won't speak a word of English. Awesome Astronomy club!

I have attended 3 community colleges in California and LACC is by far the best! It feels like a real university and students are supportive of one another's success. The professors are tough and require a lot from their students, which has been excellent preparation for transfer to 4-year universities. There are many campus resources, clubs, events, and professors have very convenient office hours.
I like how community colleges offer everyone the opportunities to study. Some teachers actually cared for students' learning and shared the world of ideas and their wisdom with utmost respect and such humility. The library and the librarians were excellent. The problem was, In order for students to get to the education or educators, administration and school counselors role is very important. However, I did not like how disorganized and uninterested those two departments were at doing their jobs, they were acting as the biggest gate keepers between education and students.
