Santa Monica College Reviews
Review Santa Monica College
Overall, SMC was a great school; lots of amazing professors and safe neighborhood. Since this school is well-known for No.1 transfer rate to UC schools, people are very studious and passionate. I've taken some really good classes, which was mind-blowing and life changing! There's no other school that offers hight level education at community college that SMC! Santa Monica is an expensive area to live in, however, there are countless activities around school. Personally, I felt like they do not give many resources and helps for an international student. Student counselor was not responsible nor helpful for student's academic success. Thus, you can't fully rely on their advice nor expect them to finish work on time.
Santa Monica College has world-wide reputation. Many international students come to this school, because Santa Monica college has great transferring system especially with UCLA. Overall, Santa Monica College is Southern California's number 1 transferring community college, number 1 campus environment, and number 1 school faculties! Very diverse atmosphere and friendly people around.
The school was great! Great community, lots of different classes for every major. Some really great teachers and some not so great. The campus is beautiful, probably the best community college campus you'll ever see, and the one of the best cafeterias I've ever seen even compared to non community colleges. Lots of clubs and activities and events. Great vibe. And its the number one school in transfers!
