What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Las Positas College is a pretty great school to attend. All of the professors are very supportive and want their students to learn. Personally, I have met teachers and counselors there that I keep in touch with even after the semester just because they are fun to talk to and offer great advice. If you need help with anything in a class, your teacher will provide assistance and there are also so many other student support groups and sources around campus. It is a really nice campus set on a hill so the view is very appealing. All of the staff and faculty on campus are also super helpful and will aid you in whatever you need done.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have enjoyed Las Positas College as my first 2 years. I have been able to fulfill all my general education requirements and have been able to save money on tuition to be able to use when I transfer to a four year. The counselors and the professors here are very nice and kind. They want the students to succeed and will try and support and help the students get to their goals. I thought Las Positas College is a safe and great campus! I highly recommend!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel like this is a pretty good community college that has a lot to offer students depending on what their educational goals are. There is a large fire department program where students seem to be pretty happy working while taking classes on campus. This school has nice facilities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a beautiful college with teachers that really care about their students and their GPAs and the fact that they care so much about the student's success is what I think really matters the most because they're what make the school great. They just recently fixed up the campus too so now it's as beautiful on outside as it is on the inside.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Las Positas is a college that cares about the students by offering great councilors that make sure you're on the right path as well as help you achieve that goal, free tutoring, financial aid and many activities for students. What it lacks is in certain departments their is a lack of teachers. In the computer science department, we had only two teachers teach advanced c++and one of them only taught one single class while the other had 5 different classes he teaches. The problem with this is that they barely ever become available and make many pacing errors causing the students to fall behind or become confused. The amount of things to do is almost nothing but it's moslty a place to learn so it does very well in that aspect.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are few teachers that are genuinely interested in teaching their students quality and professional education. Unfortunately, the average teacher is not too available, selective towards students, and has low standards. There are clear tracks for stem majors, nurses, fire tech, and police training. Theatre also has a good track, but there will be new teachers next year, si it might change. There are no real film classes, but there is an opportunity to learn radio broadcasting and journalism, and use film as your personal medium. Overall, it truly is just a transitional community college. You must do your own research on transferring if you are not a stem major and or plan to attend a university that is not a UC or CSU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been attending the school for about two years. Overall, the campus is extremely safe, the staff and students are friendly, and campus is pretty clean. The school provides a wide variety of classes to choose from, and obtaining classes is not that difficult, unless you are looking at the hard sciences. What could be improved upon, however, is the difficulty of some of the courses offered as a way to prepare for a university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy going to Las Po! Most of my general education classes were easy to get into, and with making sure to get opinions from other students, I've always picked amazing professors. Although for my major, there's a lack of professors, and the professors present aren't the most engaged. They also don't offer some of the classes needed to transfer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's great to use as an extra step when you're coming out of high school and still don't know what you want to do or you struggled with school and need a second chance to improve your grades and take care of requirements before going on to a UC or CSU. It is also a very solid cheap alternative to a university entirely if you're looking for just an Associate's degree. It is a very good option for those who are young and old alike to get an education and the resource center is very well developed to help you along the way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great campus. Even though this is my first semester at Las Positas, the students and teachers are extremely welcoming and friendly. There are various things to do around campus, if you have hour gaps, as I do. The library has a variety of books to choose from and also has study rooms that are available to a group of 2-6 people for two hour periods a day. They have a wide range of clubs going on around campus. Being social and talking to other students can also be a great way to spend the time. Academically, the classes they offer are fantastic. I wish they had a wider range of classes and majors though.
