I recently just started my college journey a couple months ago at Solano. So far, I really like the classes I’ve taken and teachers I’ve gotten to meet. The students here are very diverse and most people I’ve met are nice and welcoming. Personally, I like how the campuses are spread out and aren’t only just located in one place. It makes it easier for people, like me, to choose a campus that is close by. I also like how the counselors and customer service are always available to help, whether it’d be through email or even in person. Although I don’t go to university yet, I’m thankful that I chose a community college first.

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.
