Las Positas College is a great school to prepare you for transfer to any rigorous school in the state. Professors are often readily available and want to help you succeed, classes are offered both in person and online, and resources are provided to all who attend. Overall the only downside of the school is its long semesters, with them being 18 weeks per session.
There are some professors that definitely needs to retire or go to some type of camp to revamp their teaching styles because not everyone learns the same way. Overall, the campus is very beautiful and big. There's lots of parking spaces available depending when class times are, it's usually busy around afternoons to late evenings. The science building is where I spend most of my time and I love the new lecture rooms on the 2nd floor. The labs are big enough to move around and clean.
I think Las Positas Community College is a great and affordable place to begin pursuing an education. After graduating High School, I wasn't sure if college was for me. I joined the Army Reserve, then had a bunch of odds and ends jobs. But after applying to and enrolling at Las Positas College, within the first semester, I realized community college was within my capabilities. From there, I applied for more classes until I found Philosophy as my desired major. It was the professors and the accessibility of the campus itself that made college an opportunity for me. Las Positas provided that opportunity.
Las Positas College is a great school to start if you want to save money for the first two years of college education. I strongly recommend this school for those who are working hard, likes to learn new things, and are self-motivated. Although the majority of students only go to this college for class, there are really good student-led clubs, sports teams, a student government, and an award-winning speech and debate team that are open to all LPC students. However, we don't have a lot of school spirit because we don't have any dorms, Greek life, frequent school events, cheerleading, and football games. The food is mediocre because there are not many healthy options on campus. I do not recommend this school for those who are into wild partying and nonstop gaming because we don't have any access for alcohol/drugs and gaming is not allowed anywhere on campus except for the cafeteria and club rooms. The good news for gamers are there are two LPC gaming clubs: a Gamers' Lounge for those who are looking for tournaments and a LPC Tabletop Club for those who like card/board games. However, those clubs are recommended for gamers who are prioritizing good study habits over compulsive gaming. When it comes to educational opportunities, there is always counseling, library access, free tutoring, and office hours available to students who are seeking help on their educational goals. At last but not least, this college has one of the highest number of students who are seeking transfer to a 4-year university for a Bachelor's Degree.

I would tell myself to dedicate yourself now and get A's.
Grades will open new doors... do this now while you are young.
Each class mate I have come encounter with have all been very friendly and are truly unique and interesting individuals.
I would describe my school as over croweded. But I have to deal with it for a couple of years until I can afford to transfer out.
The lack of academic passion and involvment is unfortunate and there are not very many places to study.
I belive that my school is best know for having excellent teachers who really care about students.
Those looking to save money before attending a university.
To me this school is unique because it offers a certificate in viniculture since the school is located in wine country. The school has it's own vineyards which I think is great since it really gives the students following that course hands on experience. Another aspect of the school that I find unique is that its small size helps create a sense of family between everyone since you get to know and see a lot more people more of the time.
In Las Positas community college everything is great, as in the whole entire inviornment such as diversity in ethnicity, great teachers who are always helpfull if are seeked for help, Its beautiful and has a nice background with hills and a winery. It feels very comfortable . The whole inviornment is very important I believe. It's like a hermit crab. Hermit crabs will ditch a the cramped uncomfortable shell and find a new one that it would fit in. Im not leaving Las Positas till finish up the rest of my thirty units.
I wouldn't really say my school has a stereotype.
Pretty good, but I am unsure
Club day, and other club activities.
Classes are easy to get into, professors are great, website is easy to use and follow. The staff in the counseling officer should be more attentive towards the students needs however.
Since this school is so impacted now due to our economy and budget cuts, it is obvious that someone who is not looking to use their education towards future goals should not attend. A vast majority of the students at this school are very focused on transferring to other schools, which makes their classes very important to them. I do believe that someone who is not taking the classes wholeheartedly should not be there because they are taking the place of someone who could put taking that class and getting that grade to good use.
When I brag to my friends about my junior college I tell them that my professors are very congenial and excessable. When I have questions about tests or homework I am able to reach them online or in their offices. I also find that the student body is very nice and supportive of each other. In addition, the campus is very impressive. They are expanding it by building new facilities. One of which will be the new performing arts theatre. I wish I could take advantage of it , but I will be transferring in the fall.
