Contra Costa College (CCC) is a great campus! Many schools say that they are community oriented, but CCC truly lives up to the mark! I mean once I share my aspirations with faculty/staff at CCC, they are so supportive. However, one downside not a lot of students make the effort to reach out and network with campus staff/faculty. There is a huge networking opportunity that is simply put, untapped.

In spite of the disadvantages our community faces, I think it's a great school. In my experience so far, the teachers I've had are worst average and I've been able to seek out help when I need it. As with all schools, there's bound to be teachers, staff, and administration who are not so helpful, but I have yet to personally experience it.
