What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending College of the Desert is currently the best academic decision that I have ever made. It is a great campus with many bright and caring professors that want you to succeed and move on to the next level in higher education. It also helps financially as a student who is trying to transfer to a 4-year university and earn a Bachelor's degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

College of the Desert has been a prominent stepping stone on my path of transferring to a University. Coming here has helped ease the transition of going from a small high school to a large campus to a degree. However, while I was able to complete my general education and successfully transfer out, I found the advice of counselors futile and differing between their colleagues. Resources for career-oriented opportunities are scarce and campus clubs/organizations are little more than paper organizations for transcripts. While the administration lacked proper resources and aid for students, many of the professors go above and beyond for their students to ensure their success not only in the class but outside the classroom as well. It was through the help of many of my professors that I was able to get involved in organizations geared towards my major and ultimately got on the right track to transfer out. One of my biggest takeaways in attending College of the Desert has been the opportunity to develop friendships with classmates who are straight out of high school all the way to classmates who outside of the classroom are entrepreneurs, parents, medical professionals, et al. These friendships have enriched the classroom experience and offer many different perspectives in classroom discussions. College of the Desert has played a major role in my development and will continue to be a stepping stone for future students, despite the areas where it may fall short.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have had experience with night class taken concurrently last year with my junior year of high school. I was in the band for COD playing along side local notables. My professor was my high school band director of the time and now he has moved to another high school but I will again take band when I rejoin COD in the Fall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a fun interesting college. There are different buildings for different subjects. The parking, however, could be very difficult to find and sometimes takes awhile to find any. Other than that, there is good classes and many opportunities for the students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a first-year student, I had high expectations of a community college. Surprisingly enough, those expectations have been exceeded before I knew it. The instructors are truly involved in our learning. However, us as students can be so involved that the classes can be far too overloaded with registered and/or waitlisted learners. The issue can be solved, but it's still surprising to this day. I never felt so confident about learning up until now. High school can never compare to College of The Desert. Student mindset is indeed encouraged, as well as a growth in individual qualities. I am proud to have come here, and I will never stop feeling right at home here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of College of the Desert is that it is a good place to go to and learn what you need to learn. The professors are always available to talk to in class and in their office. The campus is really taken care of, its clean and really safe. The food is really good and everyone is really friendly. There is a mall near us and we also got the best place in the valley called El Paseo/

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved my experience at College of the Desert. I met some great people and had some incredible professors. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help if needed. I could not have asked for a better experience from a community college. They truly helped prepare me to transfer this coming school year.

Campus is great! Profs are interesting and fair. Would be great to offer more lower level classes so you don't have to wit to get into electives.
