Am learning a lot
Classes are good, just be sure to pay attention and not fall asleep during lectures!
Am enjoying being here
I enjoy going to this school because it saves a lot of money rather than going to a university, but I am really anxious to transfer. The students here come to class and go, and unless you're super involved, there's not much to do besides go to class and go home.
Bang for the buck
I'm taking five classes and the total was around $500-600 for 17 units. Its still college but its a lot cheaper than a university. You can rent text books also so it's a little cheaper. There's an off campus bookstore down the street where you can also get books from.
Tips for prospective students
Bring a lunch. Sounds weird, but the food is so good I've been spending all my money on the pizza. It's so good but after a while it adds up. And get to school early because parking is CRAZY. Sometimes in the afternoons there will be an open spot close, but most the time I've had to park halfway down the big parking lot or further. Remember where you park too because I forget easily.
Great for these types of students
It's good for people who want to get their general ed out of the way because that's basically what everyone else is doing too.

Am learning a lot
There are so many different courses and opportunities here! The teachers are understanding and using ratemyprofessor.com really helps when you choose to enroll in a certain courses.
Am enjoying being here
The atmosphere here is great, they are constantly remodeling and improving the school. The student government is very involved and does various activities for the students through the whole year.
Bang for the buck
Paying only $26 a unit, you really cant beat that. There are even books for rent and a cheap bookstore right of campus.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you meet with a school counselor before you enroll in classes. It is good, because they can help you choose what works with your schedule and with your specific needs. They are good at guiding you in the direction you need, and getting you started on the road to success!
Great for these types of students
If you like to pick and choose your schedule. If you are working part time or full time. It is also good for home school students I have heard. You should be a good match. :)

Am learning a lot
I am learning a lot from this school. Not just academic wise, but also social wise. The teachers are well educated, but the learning system differs from high school.
Am enjoying being here
It is a fun campus with many activities and little shops around during the week, that you may enjoy after, or between classes.
Bang for the buck
The school is pretty cheap. Not too expensive.
Tips for prospective students
Apply ahead of time so that you may get the classes you want, classes fill up real quick.
Great for these types of students
Slow walkers; small campus. Athletic students, many sports and activities to chose from. Late start classes for people who did not enroll at the appropriate time.
