I'm still a freshman at San Diego City College and only about two months in. So far, all my professors have been great (I have five different professors). The campus is easy to navigate through and all the staff are friendly and supportive. They have a little market that sells snacks, ready meals and various refreshments. It also sells Starbucks coffee! I personally really like the Library because of its spacious environment and comfort. It has three floors - which is plenty to find yourself a cozy spot to sit and study.

When I first went to this college in 2010 it was pretty much a dump, but had really good professor. Now they have upgraded almost every department and is one of the nicest community colleges in San Diego! The counselors care and professors are still excellent. It took me a while to transfer, but if your committed and work hard they will help you every step of the way. GO KNIGHTS!
Rating it 4 stars because it is excellent value for your money. It costs around $700 per semester for 12 units - you can't beat that. The gym is only open to students taking athletics classes, which was disappointing, and the only food onsite is food trucks and a small coffee shop. I had a couple of average professors and a couple of great ones. Overall worth studying here!
