  7. What's unique about your campus?

    The educational staff at Cabrillo is known in the area to have some of the best professors. Many professors engage their class in current events and trends that may be seen as "alternative," or are not even relevant in other areas of the country. I feel that a lot of emphasis is on environmental preservation and free and open minded thinking. Many professors challenge students to research and think for themselves before deciding and forming their own opinions on controversial issues. To me, this is one of the most important assets an individual can possess.

  8. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The worst thing about my school is the fact that there is not a lot of social interaction. Because I go to a community college, when class is out, everyone goes home. It's very rare to ever really get to know anyone, in some classes there isn't even opportunites to talk to one another. Other than that, my school is great. My school is just a hard place to get to know people.
