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 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!
Solano honestly is what you make of it, as cliche as that is. Their communications department is AMAZING. The people in it really care and they're working hard to strengthen the Speech and Debate team every year. If you take the time to form relationships with your professors, those relationships will last you and take you far both academically and with your own personal growth. Like anywhere else, use Rate My Professor or word of mouth in order to make sure you're getting the good eggs, but those good eggs really are good haha. They honestly care. As my favorite professor always says, "we chose to work here for a reason, we aren't stuck here".
