Founded in 1915, Citrus College is the oldest community college in California. The 2-year institution serves the counties of Charter Oak, Claremont, Duarte, Monrovia, and Azusa. Citrus college confers associate degree, certifications of achievement, and provides an honors transfer program for certain students. The school offers a Writing Center and Tutorial Services for students interested in one-on-one coursework assistance.
If you know how to navigate the community college system, schools like Citrus College can be an amazing, if not preferable, alternative to the 4 year university track. I've only been here for one summer and I've encountered so many inspiring faculty members as well as many well-rounded students. The reputation that many people around me that community colleges are overcrowded pools of under-achievers is completely wrong; they, like all higher education institutions, are centers for learning that deserve the prestige allotted to any other college or university.
