What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like this college! Sure It's not as big of a campus like Contra Costa College, but I like the big building they got there, the teachers there are nice and easy to talk to, I met a lot of new friends there, and I learned a lot ever since I've enrolled there. I'm thankful that I go to this college!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berkeley City College is a gem, located in the heart of downtown Berkeley. The range of classes is tremendous, and one can also take classes in any of the Peralta schools. The professors are accessible and helpful and care about the students. Class size is very reasonable- much less than a private school. Tuition is affordable, the location is right by BART and the campus is fresh and airy. Shout out to the best counselor ever-- Skylar Barton, always available to help, direct and encourage our students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berkeley City College is a great school for people who want to transfer to a four year college. The professors are motivating and will help you whenever needed. The students around are also very friendly and it is easy to form study groups with fellow classmates. Berkeley City College is close to UC Berkeley as well and is close to many amazing cafes, where students like myself spend a lot of time studying in.

Overall the college is very diverse, you get to see different people from different cultures and experiences. The faculty is very nice and easy to talk to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I do think that the staff can be more willing to help their student's they don't do enough especially the financial aid office and the counselors. But there are a few wonderful counselors who will go above and beyond to help you, and some of those don't even work there full time, so i really appreciate their help, but its hard to find the good ones, other than that the teachers for the most part are very helpful and knowledgeable .

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion if I had to recommend a Community College from the Peralta District I would immediately say Berkley City College. I have attended other community colleges within the same Peralta district and I have to say; the unique and beautiful structure and convenience from the elements in the winter due to the indoor atrium, consistent cleanliness of the building and overall environment alone make Berkeley City College my favorite. Every semester regardless of the course or teacher the material is always really enriching, and when I need extra help I can always reach out and find the assistance I need. The students are also very friendly and welcoming; I have enjoyed the numerous clubs and have been very involved in many areas of student and faculty culture on campus, my overall experience has been amazing at Berkeley City College. I am a student worker for many of the teachers and faculty on campus, when they need a runner or something done efficiently, they know they can depend on me to get it done effectively and in a timely manner. The staff and faculty are really dedicated to their duties, and make themselves available to the students. There are amazing resources in the Library, for example I have needed to complete online assignments, and this has been possible with the computer lab, and Mac programs, and renting a netbook from the library for a day. There is a Learning Resource Center that has helped me personally grow and maintain my 4.0 GPA. I am highly involved with the DSPS Disability Support Services, as a note taker every semester, and I am proud to assist students who are visually impaired or have other disabilities. The DSPS office has been extremely helpful in fulfilling their responsibility to accommodations with test taking and constant communication with my teachers. When I had a severe head injury from a seizure a few semesters back, I needed to miss a month of school from a severe concussion, these were doctor's orders. I was able to catch up on my work with flexible deadlines, and I still completed the course with the highest GPA in my class. I always communicate with my teachers extensively with impeccable attendance to clarify assignments, or find my weaknesses as a student so I can strengthen these areas. The counselors have been going above and beyond to make sure I have all my units to transfer, and when I ask specific questions the are very knowledgeable in giving me detailed information that I can follow up on and make a decision based on it. I appreciate the time the counselors spend with the students, even when there is something they are unsure about the will look it up, or make the necessary calls to figure it out. In 2019, I will be graduating and transferring to University of California Berkeley, I am sad to transfer because I truly feel like Berkley City College has become more than just a school to me, but an extension of my family, however I am excited to pursue my dual major in education and be that much closer to achieving the necessary skills for my career in Business and Law.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Heave democratic supporters. Everyone, including non-students, are nice and well mannered. Many students are very active in the community, facility is well maintained, has a security at the door (to assist students if they're lost), bathrooms are ADA compliant, elevators available as well as stairs, has a somewhat modern feel to the design/layout of the interior. Student artwok is placed throughout the facility.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berkeley City College is an amazing community college to be in if you're are very focused on your academics and love to be involved. There is a great social element and strong tight community feeling, with many opportunities to get involved in clubs, volunteering, and many other extracurricular activities. You feel very supported throughout your time there and get help in whatever you need. The counseling is a bit hectic at the start of the year, it is difficult if you're undecided and need multiple plans to transfer but the counselors are patient and you soon learn to not be so dependent on them. Overall, this school is the best community college if you're a student that is undecided and dedicated to your education as well as being involved in/outside of the school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The Advice I would give myself to really focus on getting good grades. And start early talking with your counselor to make sure that I'm on the right track in nineth girade. I think if I was really educated on how important grades and class was I would have probably got accepted in to more colleges and qualify for more grants. If I had an opportunity to redo my senior year again, I would definely do things differently as far as raising my grades and focus on completed all of my A-G class, and to also take the AP classes.
