    Contra Costa College is a very diverse community for people from all sorts of situations. That being said, Contra Costa can feel isolating, especially if you are looking for a highly intensive academic experience. There are a lot of opportunities at contra college, you just have to be willing to work hard to find and make use of them.

    The teachers there seem to care more about their students. The Contra Costa College has a district that spans into 2 other colleges Diablo Valley College, and Los Medanos College all under the same banner. So you can take classes at the other colleges besides Contra Costa College and not have to worry about transcript complications!

    What I like about Contra Costa College is that it is a very peaceful campus. What gives it this feeling is the amount of nature on campus which also gives it a calming environment. The one thing that I like the most about the campus is that I can concentrate just fine on my work just like if I was in a classroom.
