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!

My experience at Los Angeles City College has been very peaceful. All the professors I’ve had experiences with are amazing. Everything is overall organized and staff is always friendly and eager to kindly help. This college is also not as strict on deadlines as other colleges are. Honestly, this college is pretty slept on because it’s honestly great. I’ve never encountered an uncomfortable experience throughout my time here—educational nor personal discomfort—and they honestly seem to be improving more and more every year. If you’re looking for a chill, easy-going, breeze college experience with flexibility and awesome professors, I would definitely recommend this school. Especially for any 2 year goals or certificates. Very affordable and financial aid is super helpful.
Big campus that's currently undergoing a lot of new construction, so things only get better! Good teachers for the most part. Near plenty of food options. Good sized library with plenty of study space.
