Pretty campus with lots to explore. Culture of people from walks of every life trying to get their higher education. Traffic can be a hassle sometimes but nothing unusual of any college campus. Definitely a good option for those looking to go to a junior college.

Counselors don't really help. Some professors are really good it's a 50/50 chance you actually get someone you enjoy. Been going to school to pursue a career in DMS and the program was recently paused due to their only professor retiring/leaving. They refuse to close the program and are straddling students along by saying it is paused without giving any notice of when the program will be back.

The teachers are really nice, and they keep me motivated at school! Lastly, I do recommend that Cosumnes River College is a good way to start off college strong!

I think Cosumnes River College is a great school for people straight out of Highschool and have no idea what they are doing. It has lots of options to help students really get to know what college learning is like. Although there is not much extra circulars. I kind of view it as a self learning Highshool.

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

    The worst thing about my school would be inexperienced and not fully-educated teachers. There are a few teachers that often stumble on their lectures and made a lot of mistakes. The class would have to correct them almost seven out of ten times. I am the student and I am supposed to learn from the teachers. If the teachers are not even sure on the subject(s) that they are teaching, then there is no reason for me to go to class because I can just learn from books.
