I think Chabot College is a great opportunity and facility to study pre-requisites and join different clubs. I give four stars due to the fact that some professors/teachers are more understanding/ willing to aid students when it comes to school work and some are not. It’s also fairly difficult to receive a counselor’s appointment or any type of immediate assistance from Chabot college

As a school for academics, it's great for transfer students and getting other degrees in general, as it has one of the best math programs. In my experience, the math and physics programs are one of the best in the community college system, and highly recommend for STEM students. However, as computer science students, its computer science department is very lacking in professors that have been in the industry for the last 10-20 years. Their knowledge of modern technologies is very limited and often forces students to use very dated technologies in class. In terms of sports, plenty of recreational sports are available for students from complete beginners to advanced individuals. School food is also provided, and there are programs that offer students that are in financial need to get food along with food banks for individuals as well. As for school programs, there are a variety of programs, but the ones I took advantage of were the tutoring for math and physics in the STEM labs. Specifically, the MESA program was great for students of diverse backgrounds to provide opportunities to succeed in STEM. Overall, although the community college isn't perfect, I believe its one of the best schools to figure out what you want to do and eventually pursue a bachelor's or pursue whatever careers you believe you can achieve.

Chabot College has given me the opportunity to be as successful as I can be. It has given me several options in education, sports, and extracurricular activities. And each area has faculty dedicated to your success and understanding of the material. Everyone is very professional when needed but also knows how to relax and joke around. Every student is willing to help. We’re a team at Chabot, it’s not every man for themself.

Viviana - 02/25/2020

Chabot college has a lot of resources available for students. The instructors are available in office hours or through email as well. Most of them tend to reply fast. The class sizes are around 35-45 and hasn't been in issue. The STEM center, free tutoring, communication lab, counseling center are all great places to get extra help or guidance.Overall it's a good school with lots of support.

Collage is the time where doors open to knew places, new views, new ways of thinking to open up your mind and experience things that will make you decide which way your future goes. Theres no pressure on what collage you choose on going to, on the contrary, take your time and choose which you like.
