this school is one of the best according to my experience. this school provides a good education, a safe atmosphere, a relaxing place to study at being that your surrounded by nature trees all around. this school has nice, and friendly staff members perhaps like other schools every now and then a few rude ones but most are willing to help when needed, when questions are asked they try to help one.

Being a relatively small and underfunded community college located in a not so great area, does not obstruct or limit the quality of education at ELAC. Quite the contrary, you find professors passionate about each student, willing to sacrifice time and whatever necessary, in order to aid them in preserving their motivation and succeed. I would definitely recommend this college to anyone not wishing to start off at a four-year, as it will orient you and ultimately get you on the right path for achieving your educational goals.
