    Everyone here wants to learn. That is the best classroom environment a student could have. The teachers are friendly, are eager to teach and understand that the students have lives outside of the classroom. Students are respectful towards each other. I love being in such an accepting, diverse group of students. Every staff member, including a custodian, grounds keeper, security guard, registration secretary and instructors, is very helpful and kind. The buildings are very clean and kept organized, even the bathrooms!

    The resources available are priceless; from the library to the computer lab and even the workshops offered each quarter. The atmosphere is a bit laid back as are most of the professors.

    I love that it's not crowded in any of the hallways no matter what time it is. You're able to get where needed without waiting for people to move out of the middle of the halls. I haven't had one mean teacher for the two years I've been here and the buildings are well kept.
