SOME of the professors are great. Take the business classes for example: they're all great and helpful! The pesky general requirement teachers are often shrewd and biased. They're teaching skills aren't exactly up to par. I've had some really great teachers that taught me a lot! But, the rest of them have serious issues. Women In History didn't cover Women In History, it covered Carl's J.R. ads, sexism, feminism, lesbianism and activism. Really? The Speech instructors are the worst though: minus two...Nancy Petersen and Austin Shrope. My English professors have serious skills though! Even loved my sociology, marketing and business professors. I landed on the Dean's Honor Roll List and for some reason, after that year...taking classes that are required for my associates that don't even pertain to my major really hurt me. HOW DOES SOMEONE GO FROM BEING ON THE DEAN'S HONOR ROLL, TO ACTUALLY DISLIKING THE COLLEGE? It's depressing and nobody there is of any help in the main building at the Stockton Campus.
Review Your College
6 things I wish I knew before going to Delta:
1- If your exit time is at 12-12:30: Park towards the back and leave towards the back, DON'T even try to leave from the main entrance, you'll be waiting for at least 20 minutes.
2- Research your professors on Ratemyproffessor.com, you'll find the best ones on there.
3- If you absolutely cannot get a counselor appt, go the career center and ask for some help!
4- FOCUS. If you go in not knowing what you're doing, don't expect for your dream career to land on your lap- it won't. Instead, know WHAT you want, WHERE you want to go and the rest will follow suit.
5- Test out as high as possible in the entry exams. These exams will dictate what classes you will take along with how long you'll be at college ;) so TEST HIGH!
6- Don't be rude. If you don't want to read, do your hw, etc don't take out your anger on passive professors. You're here to learn, not complain about learning and try to get away with doing as little as possible.
Delta College offers a lot of programs to help students succeed and actually want to see students succeed! Aside from the education aspect, there is also a lot for students to become involved in (something I wish I would have done) such as clubs, leadership, etc. One of the things Delta College has done recently is have a live music with a live band near the koi pond. You can tell they want students to become involved and enhance the college community. I love to utilize the computer lab during breaks in between classes- it is completely free and a great way to spend valuable time by getting work done! (Usually the library's computers are completely full...) I have also had some great teachers- along with the not so great, but I think that comes with the experience of every school...

Overall, Delta College is a great community college to attend despite the reputation it gets through word-of-mouth of high school students and new delta college students. I have had the opportunity to save money and still live at home before moving on to transfer to another university. What more could you ask for?
