    This by far is the best experience I've had. Balancing out work with school as a veteran is very hard but California College has made it easier. The staff here cares about students from the top to the bottom and provide help from tutoring to personal problems that could potentially affect school.

    What to do for fun

    For fun you can take a drive away from the campus and go out to eat or hang around the shopping area near-by.

    Food and Dining

    Even as a guest, the college advisors offered me food and drinks. Which were all good if i should say so myself.

    Dorm Life

    I am currently living off-campus so i cannot truly say much about dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    This is an accredited college, they take a lot of pride in making sure the students are getting the best possible education.

    What to do for fun

    Study groups are usually fun. Everyone has their own creative way of learning and it'll be fun to learn different learning styles.

    Food and beverages in the lobby, small portions to snack on, on the go.

    None offered at this school.

    Academic Rigor

    Goes by fast and you'll have fun learning here.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just be aware of the cost, make sure there are no hidden fees. Utilize all resources to help pay for school. You'll make monthly payments as you're in school so have some kind of income to take care of that.

    In three sentences

    I would rate CCSD at a 8.5 scale. You'll learn things so fast here, so you have to be willing to keep up at a fast pace. The instructors are great, always willing to help you.
