Overall Rating:

I think its time for another college. This semester I have two teachers who make it almost impossible for me to learn.

Overall Rating:

Financial aid office is horrible. For some reason, they claim that I had defaulted on student loans when in fact they were all discharged since I am a disabled vet. I had cleared this up on Aug 17th. The person had logged on and saw proof that my loans were all discharged. Now I logged in to my student account and the same student loan default came back on there. I had several misfortunes of dealing with these incompetent California community colleges that I may decide not to pursue a degree.

When I was there for my second semester, I went to an English class with Professor Olague. He took attendance. I was one of the students who wasn't mentioned because if one student didn't show up, I'd take that student's place. I told him that I was in the waiting list. He looked over the waiting list and said that I wasn't in the waiting list. I kindly told him that I was and offered him to show my paper that I was. He got angry at me and yelled at me to leave. Totally unprofessional.

Lock your bike and bike tires with strong locks. Theft is a major problem. Speaking from experience. Not enough bike racks.
