Overall Rating

The overall experience at Cerritos College is interesting since there is always something happening such as events like Hoe Down Day, Club info Day, Welcome Day/Night, but also there are many different clubs on campus that makes coming everyday to school fun for instance i'm in four clubs QSA, Wilderness, EOPS and Kinesiology club each of these club are part of the student body and represent different things and were made for different purpose, but the fact that they can come to gather as one and create fun events to raise money or just to have fun makes each semester less stressful and fun since you get to interact and meet new people every semester. For instance, EOPS and wilderness help each other when there's bake sales or when there events they invite one another like a kayaking trip we recently have or how in wilderness club we go hiking and clean-ups to preserve nature and the wild how it is making it fun and different every weekend and interacting with other student. But also what makes these campus different from others i have taken classes at is that people seam friendly, professors are willing to make time to help you no matter what, also staff members will try to help if possible as a custodian did when i was attending summer school in 2011 and was coming to campus at three in the morning to study, he would open a classroom for me to be comfortable and safe to study, not leaving me outside in the dark to study. Many may say there campus is better but Cerritos college to me is the best in all its categories.
