I came here for a couple of seminar classes. It was a good experience being a student at this college. If it was located closer to home I would have chosen to earn a degree here. Too bad the distance was too great. It is a fine college for students in the area.

I remember one time I had to deal with payments of one of my classes and I went to the cashier head. Don't remember her name but until this day I remember her, she was short and of Asian decent. She had a very bad attitude towards me and wasn't being informative nor trying to understand what I was explaining because I was using FA and was in EOPS and that this class I should not have been paying full tuition. I got to a point where I blew up in her face because I got fed up with how she was treating me. She then backed off and tried to change the situation but I was not about to let that go. I made sure her supervisor knew how she was treating me and I was not going to have it. Overall the school is good and the teachers are great depending on what department. Mr. Leong and Dr. Akiyama are probably the best instructors that I had when I was there. Both knowledgeable and cool to talk to.
