Overall Rating

As a student , a student worker , and a Member of Compton's Associated Student Body , I really enjoy the time that I have on the campus the professors are amazing. The most memeorable moments I have had were all the events that the A.S.B before myself put on which really made me want to get involved and , be apart of my campus and community. My tip for a prospective student would be to get involved even if you feel like you wont have time join a club ! Everything matters even at a community college level its not about the school that you are at it's about what you make of it.
