Solano Community College Reviews

Solano Community College is a respectable institution that has rigorous courses, adequate learning facilities, and teachers and faculty willing to help you get to where you need to go. From my experience as a student, my only complaints are a lack of variety in academic programs and lack of social events. Frankly, if your major is not Psychology, Nursing, or any natural(e.g. Biology) or social science, then I would suggest to consider another school.

While Solano does offer other programs besides the aforementioned, some of them tend to have low enrollment and are subsequently cancelled. In addition, the essential classes can have long waiting lists and if you're not wise enough to enroll early, you may find yourself waiting a semester to take a required course. Should you decide to enroll, I highly recommend you go through the orientation and matriculation process. A counselor will put you on the right path, saving you loads of time. Best of luck to you!

I liked being able to meet a lot of people at the college and having a cheaper way of completing the same courses I would have had to complete during the first two years of a 4-year University. Solano is a great place to interact with others, and I have built many new life-long relationships with the people there as well as opening multiple job opportunities with some of the staff at the college in their theatre. What I would like to see more of on the campus, however, is better cafeteria food and more student club representation around the campus. Although Solano is working hard on renovating the campus buildings and as the President of one of the clubs on campus, I can see that they are trying to include the clubs a lot in a lot of the activities.
I attended my first semester and am very happy with the classroom sizes and cleanliness. The bathrooms were always clean and uncluttered since there are many around campus. The bookstore, financial aid, and cafeteria employees are very friendly, but I didn't have a great experience with the admissions office they seem to only be concerned about gossiping with each other rather than helping those in line!
