100% of students gave College of San Mateo 5 stars overall.
The campus is beautiful. Resources are always available to help the student. However, there's a lot of part time faculty which means they'e not always on campus or required to hold office hours so my teachers are almost never available. Also the aspect of online grades is not really present at the College of San Mateo. None of my teachers use it and it makes it very difficult to know what your grades are and how well you're doing in the class.
