    The professors here are really helpful. Especially the science department, there is a lot of teachers with PhD degrees, and you get the same education you will get at 4 years for a lot less money.

    Going to a community college is the best route by FAR. I am almost thankful that I slacked in high school. I am now getting a 4.0 GPA, learning more than ever with teachers who actually CARE, and I'm taking the same exact classes that my friends are taking at CSU's and UC's for a quarter of the price if not less. This is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I wouldn't go back in time and change a thing!

    Very affordable!! The tuition there is not a buck burner. We also get a lot of help to apply for scholarships and fafsa so we don't really have to pay out of the pocket. I have spent maybe $30 since i've entered the school which says a lot. Classes are not expensive and the school kind of requires us to apply for a BOG waiver that gives us $500 or more in money to cover our registration fee.
