    College is whatever you make of it. If you make it a positive experience that's what it will be. If you set a goal and stick to it the location is just a stepping stone.

    Laney college is a somewhat larger community college. My favorite part about it is that is is part of the larger Peralta system, so once you register for one school you can take classes at a number of others. My least favorite part is that it is underfunded and resources seem to be lacking.
