Solano Community College Reviews

The campus is clean and the students are very friendly. The teachers are more than willing to stay after class and help you with any problems you may have and the cafeteria food is actually edible! The campus isn't too big either and it's easy to find your way around. The security there is also very comforting. They have their own safety app. The only thing I can complain about is the STEM-related clubs they offer. The clubs aren't very organized and they function more like a study hall. Since my major is in the STEM field, I was greatly disappointed by this but nevertheless, the campus is very good in all other aspects.

Solano Community College is a really amazing community college. People are kind and the campus is honestly really nice. There are 3 campuses and the best ones are the main and Vacaville ones. Professors are amazing and helpful too! I'm currently a sophomore here planning on transferring and taking my prerequisites for nursing school. The counselors know what they're talking about are super sweet as well. I transferred to this community college from Contra Costa because of how lonely I felt over there and I truly believe this is the best place where you can start off your education especially for free since I am a student full time and have kept up my GPA.
Because of COVID-19, all of my classes are online. The professors/instructors leverage the internet or online platforms to enhance learning and communication for any class type by allowing students to email, call, or text them at almost any time if there are any questions the student might have. Also, many of my professors have commented about the strict rules Solano Community College has set in place because of COVID-19 that make sure the professors/instructors have accommodations for those who are disabled or need any additional help such as recording Zoom lectures to upload as YouTube videos with captions for those who need to look back on the lecture or have any hearing disabilities.
