The jump from being in high school to college was a scary experience. My high school didn't really prepare me for college and other future endeavors, so I just felt stuck and lost. Luckily, the college counselors really did help in leading me to the right path.. I do have a bit of problems though, mainly for the Menifee Campus:

There are some professors that are hit and miss. There was one professor I had, Professor Martinez, who taught College Algebra, that required you to spend almost $200 on a math program and a book that was completely different from the way he taught us. It got so bad that in the beginning of the class, we had a full class. By the end, we had less than 15 students.

Their food, while tasty, was overpriced and quite off putting.

Their counselors and their tutors are absolutely amazing and I recommend going to them. They really do help out a lot. Definitely recommend this college!

Love this school! Currently in my 3rd year and I am about to transfer to a Cal State University. Every professor I have had has been great and they truly care about their students. My professors have helped me with extra time on assignments and they are very knowledgeable about their classes. The campus is clean and the staff are friendly and eager to help with anything and everything school related to the best of their abilities. I have not had a problem yet. I would definitely recommend my college to other people.
I liked the flexibility of my class schedule and the Menifee campus, which was my primary location. I felt like I had easy access to the materials that I needed, and that I had support from the school. My favorite part of the campus was the Makerspace. It was a place to express myself creatively and learn new technologies in an instructive environment. My least favorite part of the campus was the lack of an indoor meeting place. On rainy/hot/windy days, there was no indoor area where people could talk, relax, or hang out in between classes. The library offers places to sit, but no designated "talking allowed" area. The cafeteria is too small and crowded, and the main area of the library entrance is uncomfortable and impersonal.
