It is a great community college! I started here, and I have no regrets about it! They have a wonderful staff, great outdoors activities, and it really connected me with my community. I have met many students like me who could not go to a university immediately, and they seem to enjoy it here too. It allowed me to work and go to school and prepare for the university life!
