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!
Review San Diego City College
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!
San Diego City College is my heart and soul! I absolutely love the professors there. They are knowledgeable and willing to go above and beyond what is required in order to ensure that their students succeed. They speak so passionately about social issues and a majority of them are active in the community.
