I've been in this institution for almost a total of four years and I can't express enough of how appreciative I am for meeting the various professors in the math and science department. I have been active in several clubs on campus (SACNAS, ASG, Chinese Language Club, Robotics) and it's opened a lot of doors for me in terms of accessibility to travel to academic conferences, volunteer opportunities, apply for scholarships, presenting projects to a particular department, networking with potential mentors,etc. The students that attend this school ( city college district in particular) develop strong habits of personal responsibility and dedication to perform well for their future. I can't thank SDCCD enough for the journey and it makes me proud to call myself a community college student .
San Diego City College is an incredibly interactive and resourceful school that cares deeply about their students. Prior to enrolling officially in the school, new incoming students are required to attend an event called "Student Success Day". This is a day where the students are welcomed into the school and given an agenda for a full day of workshops and orientations where they interact one on one with their new peers and some teachers, counselors, and staff of City College. Moreover, in my opinion, this day is great tool to making the new students feel at-home, prepared, and comforted that their journey at City College will be packed with great things.
