community college is a brilliant, inexpensive way to get all your general ed classes and then transfer to a 4-year. las positas has some of the most caring and compassionate instructors that i have ever met. i really enjoy attending this college.
Tips for prospective students
do your research. but you really do not have to look any further for a very good college to attend.
Food and Dining
the food is a little pricey for college students, but i have not had a bad meal in the cafe.
What to do for fun
there are a lot of clubs to join and las po has a radio station. that is fun right there.
Bang for the buck
you will definitely be happy at this college at only $36 a unit.
Great for these types of students
this is a very diverse campus. young and adults returning to college....many types of people at las po.
Campus Safety
campus police make their presence known. but it is always a good idea for females to walk together to our cars.

Am learning a lot
The faculty here is outstanding. Every class I've taken here has required me to actively participate and engage in the class, which I was initially uncomfortable with. But, I've made great progress here and look forward to each class.
Am enjoying being here
In addition to the awesome faculty, the student life is great here too. I moved to this area just a few months ago and have already made a great number of friends through classes and student organizations.
Bang for the buck
You'll get a top-notch education for community college prices. Two of my professors also teach at the CSU and UC levels, and teach just a couple classes here. I suppose that's a reflection of the poor economy, but I'll take the benefit!
Tips for prospective students
If you're a military veteran, you will find no better choice. I have never worked with such a school that puts veterans first like this place does. I haven't had benefits this good since I left the service.

Am learning a lot
A lot of the classes that Las Positas College offers have around 30 students. This means that you can obtain plenty of information with the ability to ask questions, and get better acquainted with your professors. This not only makes your experience more hands on, but also increases your ability to succeed.
Am enjoying being here
Many people categorize junior college as a continuation of high school. I do not agree. The majority of my professors here have been extremely helpful and I find that most really do want their students to succeed and do well. I have enjoyed my experience, and have done very well for myself.
Bang for the buck
Of course, junior colleges are cheaper than 4-year colleges. But, not only is the tuition cheaper, so are things like parking passes and there are also many different ways to go about buying books for cheap.
Tips for prospective students
One major tip that I can offer is to stay on top of your work. Now that you are out of high school, deadlines are not as structured as you are used to. There are not many turn-in dates for rough drafts or work sheets. Most of the work is on you. It is best to make deadlines for yourself. If you fall behind, it will be unnecessarily difficult to keep up.
Great for these types of students
Las Positas College is great for students who do well with more one-on-one help and feel more comfortable in a more interactive environment. I definitely take advantage of teacher's office hours to work with them and as questions and couldn't have asked for more help. I also feel like this environment is far less intimidating than to be on a huge campus where you feel rushed to get to your classes. This is a much more low-key option but also very friendly and helpful.
