    If I had to choose between Modesto a Junior College and Columbia College, it would most definitely have to be Columbia College. They gave such a warm welcoming to all students. It is z smaller school do the instructors are more available to the students. I love Columbia College.

    Good cost for the courses, but difficult to get what you need for your major and general ed in a timely matter.

    Very cheap tuition, and the cost of living in the area is low. Also, they have a job placement program which is very helpful.

    I am a high school so my college fees are waived. I only have to pay $20 a semester for all my classes! But otherwise if you are a CA resident, it's $46 per unit which is not bad at all.

    You can actually sign up to have the school give you a job on campus if you fall under the guidelines for it. Very helpful and cool.
