Fullerton College is student centered, and has a great art program as well as great teachers overall. I love being on campus and I feel that they make every effort to help us to enjoy learning. They have a lot of resources to help students like the $12 meal plan, Physical and Mental health care and a Food Bank. Fullerton College just keeps on getting better.

I was very scared to start a new school after having to move and transferring. If I’m being honest, I felt so at home at this college. I love all the teachers and have had a great experience. I can’t wait to say I graduated from Fullerton Community College.

Raquel - 02/20/2023

I personally have had a wonderful experience at Fullerton College! Many of the Professors that I have had the privilege of learning from have been extremely qualified, engaging, and passionate about what they teach. The campus is beautiful and is right by the Downtown area, which does not feel as safe but there are plenty of food spots, shops, and activities within walking distance from the school. The college offers countless resources for all types of minorities and for those in financial need. One of those is that they give free meals to students who have valid school IDs. This is one of many that relieve burdens regarding finances and everyday life. Fullerton College is a great school.

  3. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    I honestly wish i would have tried to get straight into a university instead of choosing to go to community college. I was unsure of my future and believed that by going to a community college it would have time to figure it out. I do believe Fullerton College is a great school, but i do wish I would have applied to a Cal State or UC.

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

    This one's hard. I've had a good, rewarding experience at Fullerton College. Maybe the effects of the budget cuts? For example, the library's hours have been reduced, so sometimes that's inconvenient, I guess. But those cuts affected all schools, so really I have no complaints.

  10. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    I believe that someone who is not self-motivated and a self-starter would not be a good match for this school. While being a community college, many people seem to have the misconception that it is not as serious as perhaps a four-year school might be. However, I find the courses very stimulating and the teachers amazing. However, I can see where some students slip through the crack and stay at a two-year school for many years and do not seem to move closer to either transfer or graduation.

  11. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating thing about Fullerton College is that almost every semester, most courses are taught at an inconvenient time due to shortage of professors teaching specific courses. I am unable to take majority of the courses for my degree for example, because a class is overlapping another class at the same time and cannot do anything about it because only one professor teaches the course every semester. The only thing students can do is just plan well and work hard and hope that next semester, they can take the class they require.

  14. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    A stereotype that I hear often, not just about students at Fullerton College, but at all Community colleges, is that they are probably just going to drop out. I know that this is a false stereotype at Fullerton College because I and many other students have worked hard to avoid this. The saying goes 'Once a Hornet, always a Hornet' and we know that this is a bit of a joke, because most of us have taken longer than expected to transfer/graduate, but because we are dedicated to our education and involved in our community we have overcome that stereotype and will only continue to do so. If I get my opportunity to teach here, in the future, I will work hard to do whatever I can to see that this spirit continues within my students.
