My opinion in this college is that there are many opportunities to get a short term career and also to advance to transfer the consular are ready to help and show the career path. There are many programs and ways to help pass classes like tutoring. The professors are eager to help.
It’s a good school they help you alot but you need also put the work in for them to help you
i enjoy, it doesn't feel like a community college
If I could say one thing in this world it would be “Never show Weakness”. We live in a very tough society where women are frequently judged due to selfish motivations. Men in the day of today see the female gender as inferior to men. Men believe that women are incapable of working in certain job fields because, for example, women are not usually seen to be working on a construction site or to be an electrician. It is mostly seen that men fulfill those jobs and there are not many women who apply. Most women can’t take upon an open opportunity to take on an all-male job. If you could say one thing to the entire world at once, it would be to never show weakness. For reasons such as any woman are allowed and capable of doing an all-male job. Men do not have the right to see right through women to believe that we are the weaker sex and are not capable of achieving the job. Anyone who believes and shows hardworking dedication in certain things, any course in life that comes upon a person, anyone is capable of completing. This quote also can be taken in an emotional matter. No matter how much a person goes through in life, there is always a good of the day of tomorrow. The day that went wrong will not stay the same. Never show weakness around other people because that informs them that it is working to hurt a person. I would say to never show weakness because this saying can be learned for so much.

knowing what i know now, i would have convinced myself to continue with school after high school. not only that i would of focused more on the time i had in high school, thats where it began. if i would have just kept up in class i wouldnt have to do have of my senor year again. hey, you live and you learn. the time i spent working making money, could have been spent on my career, learning and graduating, maybe even getting double what i earn now. education is the key to jobs, money and a knowing of how to maintain health to prosper. if one is not educated, its like being able to speak but you dont, what good is it that u have a mouth if nothing productive is let out.
A very diverse set of people coming from different backgrounds all in search of a College education.
programs that they offered because they are good programs
One can start at my school and go anywhere they want, there are endless possibilities.
I wish I had known it was under major construction and that the clubs I was interested in joining were no longer active in the campus.
A person that shouldnt attend this school, is someone that does not like to seek for help, and beleives they can go through college life with no one's help.
I came to know about it for its courses in Photography and because of the large mural they once had but no longer exists due to the construction.
The worst thing about the school right now is that the campus is going under construction!!! it totally sucks because the classrooms are being moved from time to time and there is no subject that has a permanent classroom. There are always loud noises during class time which bother any student while they are trying to focus. Also the budget cuts are extremely bad! less classrooms and all semesters get filled up really quicker than usual because there arent enough hired proffesors.
The school is undergoing heavy construction, making the campus a little difficult to navigate through. However, the campus is relatively small and it offers free shuttle services in between classes. Other than that, the campus is a delight.
While East Los Angeles College is a small community college, it remains large in its presence and impact upon society. The college acts as an important stepping stone, connecting its students with the heights of their ambitions while also supplying our society with productive members across the occupational spectrum. Students can attend East Los Angeles College with the intention of becoming anything in between a mechanic or a doctor and find the fundamental starting grounds that will propel them into their desired direction. This college has undoubtedly changed the lives of millions, standing as a proponent of social change.
The kind of person who should attend this school should be a motivated one. One who thrives on learning, doing and showing. The kind of person who wants to grow as a member of society, intellectually and be willing to do for others what is being done for them.
The thing i brag about to my friends is the fact that i was still given the chance to proper and grow after the time that has already passed me by. I dont emphysize enough that school is for all ages not just high school grads(17-19). The best part is that its free thanks to me being the first generation attending college from my family.
Academics are pretty decent. Professors remember your name IF you show up to class, it never fails that the class looks empty except for test days. Remember that most of the professors here take attendance into consideration when getting final grades together, its a major factor really. My favorite classes have been Broadcasting 1 (I had an excellent Professor), and Law 1 (another great Professor). My major is English however I can honestly say I didn’t have the greatest teachers when it came to this subject, however I’m sure that will change next semester when I get more into mythology and all that good stuff, hopefully. Also, the math teachers here are pretty great. There are a mix of students study wise. I, for example study my booty off because I want to transfer to a good university, however I have been in study groups where students could care less about anything school related. Overall, it’s a mixed bag. I hear that the occupational programs here are decent, however I’m receiving an AA and transferring so I cannot fairly speak on that subject.
One of the best things about this school is the location. It's in Monterey Park so its close to East LA, Alhambra, LA, etc. It's also right near Atlantic square which contains alot of shops and a market. In all honestly, however the faculty is the best of the best. I've had many professors and I can only say 2 had no business teaching, and thats not a bad rate. Mainly, you get excellent professors that treat you with respect, so far. I only have a couple semesters left before I transfer and I can say that overall, I have had a great experience. The tuition isn't all that bad (even though it IS rising). Also, the counseling is pretty great. In the beginning I went to one woman and she was one of those who just rushed me out of her office and didnt help me at all, which was discouraging, however when I switched counselors (and I'm very glad I did) he has been nothing but helpful and patient. The campus is also nice. BUT the bad part of this school is registration. Good luck new students on getting classes, its really, really difficult due to overcrowding. Its also very difficult to add the day of, you may get lucky though as I did last fall.
No dorms available, but there are many apartments right across from the school that are always for rent (and since I've checked because I was thinking of moving right there last year, rent is decent for LA)
Soccer, Administration of Justice Clubs
I do not know
I see myself getting closer to achieve my goals
Either the library (which is dark and a very small space) or the technology building (which is nice, but small) your best bet will be to go off campus.
