Overall

The school is pretty good. Its very cheap for in-state students, although for out-of-state students its very expensive, so there's quite a divide there. Most of the classes are professional and interesting, although there are a few duds mixed in.

Academics

Most classes are 25-40 students. The workload is manageable. Professors are a wide variety, but most are intelligent and easy to get along with. The best part is the big variety of classes you can choose to sign up for.

Campus Facilities & Safety

Berkeley City College is very small, but it gets the job done. Its partner colleges (part of the same Peralta district) such as Laney College have much better campuses. However, the Berkeley City College campus is good enough, and includes a counseling center and student library.

Overall

I love the diversity of the people there; you never know who's going to be in your classes. All the teachers I have had so far have been really nice and extremely helpful. The campus is limited to one building, so it is easy to get around and find classrooms.

Academics

My school has a large variety of general education classes. Class size ranges from about 25-40, but the teachers I have had work hard to meet the needs of every student and answer any questions we have.

Campus Facilities & Safety

The overall environment of this campus is great. The people are generally friendly, and the building is very accessible (it is a block away from many different bus lines, as well as BART). It is pretty well organized, with a decently sized computer lab. Parking is a problem, as this campus is downtown and does not have its own parking lot. There are two public parking lots close by, but I don't think they are affiliated with the school, so people still have to pay for parking.
