The professors are very helpful and they want to see their students succeed. There aren’t ridiculous class sizes and it’s very intimate. You get to interact with people of all paths in life and ages, it’s very refreshing to see older people trying to better to themselves in college. It gives you hope that if they can do it so can you.

Compton college is definitely underrated.The students are so eager to learn and the professors are very eager to teach. Yes the buildings are old and could use more maintenance but we know its probably a lack of budgeting. Overall I enjoy my experience here.

I love the small community and professors are extremely willing to help students succeed. Professor Valerie Woodward had made my experience here extremely worthwhile I've learned so much from her and have become more self confident. The size of the school really works to students advantage.
