I honestly don't really have much to say because this school isn't really the best. There are a lot of cheating for majority of the classes that I have taken. Also the professors aren't that great. Some are lazy and they don't care about the students and let them do whatever they want. Another thing I would suggest is researching the professors because I taken some and neglecting the review, which went very badly that I had to drop the class. So just be mindful about these things and you'll probably do fine.
A community based college in the heart of Oakland, California. Consisting of an ethnically diverse staff and student body, Laney college has been an amazing place to meet creative and motivated people from all walks of life. The campus is easily accessible via Bay Area Rapid Transit. As a memeber of the baseball team I am happy to be a part of a program with a student athlete tranfer rate of 89%. I enjoyed my time at Laney College in Oakland.
Laney is one the best local/easy to commute colleges for the bay area. Easily a alternative for upcoming students to gain experience and learn to develop a general idea or plan for their own path to success. From Diversity in classes and teachers to the artistic culture that is shown through the arts ...Also the enriched history within the city of oakland, Everyone will be motivated to find something to get inolved with. Laney at some point needs to add at least one accredited B.A program or bridge program to go along with the A.A degree programs. Also built with the successful and moving ideologies of the Black Panthers who paved a way for the community that we see today in the bay area and providing that leadership and platform for Black/brown students to have a voice within society. .
Great Teachers they’re always willing to help students. This campus has lots of activities for students, especially social movements. Oakland, Ca is the birthplace of the Black Panthers, students are always willing to voice their concerns about our education and community.

Well to be honest I would tell my lazy butt to get up and do something!I was a notorious slacker in High School and hardly bothered to think about college because I figured that was so far away.My first year of college I was completely overhwhelmed that I had to rely on myself to get things done and no longer have teachers or counselors to tell you what to do and where to go.It's something they tell you constantly in High School and the stubborn bunch of us don't listen but that doesn't mean your life is over.At Laney I've been given a second chance and sometimes you don't get those.
Indiana University of Pennsylvania is diverse and welcoming.
Laney College is culturally diverse.Each day you see students and faculty from different backgrounds and it's very exciting to see this all going on in the middle of a crime-ridden city like Oakland.When I started taking classes at Laney I immediatly met all types of people but isn't that what America is all about.Each student,young or old, has a story and despite the stereoptypes of the area I've seen greatness arise from Laney College.
My instructor. I wish I could have met my instructors before adding their class. For me, in order for me to feel good and be successful in class, I need to know my instructor cares.
The worst thing about this school is dealing with the admissions process. The lines in the admissions, financial aid and cashier's offices are always extremely long and time-consuming. One could spend almost up to an hour in one of their lines on a bad day :(
I usually brag about the atletic department at Laney College. The staff is beyond wonderful and 100% motivating.I joined the Laney College Swim Team and the coaches and my teammates inspired me to always put out my best effort,no matter what I do.Although there were times I didn't want to,I always knew I had a place to go and someone to turn to.The Laney College pool has now become a place that always brings happiness.
My classmates were very serious student, they had a goal in mind and they were willing to do what it took to achieve their degree. There were some that wasn't that serious. But the one that I associated with tried very hard to succeed. I was almost the older student that realized that education is a must. And a mind is a trouble thing to wasted. Far as I know they are still working hard at accomplishing their goals. They have plan on getting a better paid job. So that they can better take care of their family.
Laney College is not for those who want to recieve a bachlors degree or is serious about a particular subject and wants to find themselves submerged in a cluster of people that are all aspiring todo the same thing. Laney is a school for continuing education, polishing skills, discovering potential and limits, or to transfer to an accredited 4-year institution. It is not a place to settle and call home.
Business I think. Although they do have an awesome hair styling program, a huge art center and sports teams.
I've only been at Laney for two semesters, and so far I know that there are lots of sports teams, a Muslim Students Association, a Black Student Union, and student government. I'm not involved in any groups. I don't see too many people dating, or I don't notice. I made my closest friends outside of school, but I've met a surprising amount of friendly people. Off campus, I usually take the BART one stop to 12th Street, City Center and get food or hang out at the park nearby.
I don't think there's a common stereotype at Laney because everyone is so different! One thing I noticed, which is so strange to me on a college campus, is that everyone is always late to class. Even the professors. It bothers me so much.
The kind of person who is interested in furthering their education, while also meeting people from different backgrounds.
The most frustrating thing about my school was that It wasn't frustrating at all. I learned so much while I was attending college, I learned about myself and my ability and weakness. I learned that I was a leader and not a follower. I learned that I need to work on my listening skills, because I didn't give people enought time to finish their sentence when they were talking. Another thing that was frustrating was that I didn't realizes how special I was to other people, and how I made people happy being around me.
