What is your overall opinion of this school?

Santa Monica College is hands down the best community college in Los Angeles. The professors are very involved, and there is a wide variety of art classes with several available resources. The campus is beautiful. Also the food is amazing for a school cafeteria. And I hate online classes but at SMC they're not bad.

I’ve been going here for a long time and I love it! The teachers are great, the campus is huge and you make great friends and memories here. Their Welcome Center has everything a new student needs. The counselors help with all academic needs and it’s the #1 community college with a high transfer rate. A great place to start.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school and they also invest a lot in expansions. I enjoy the sports that are here at Smc. I am grateful to be a Corsair. It’s all different types of people full of intelligence shaping the growth of educational standards. It’s also the top transfer school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I took three classes over two summers as a high schooler. I love the atmosphere and I love the people. The professors are very good and encourage asking questions and make the students all feel respected. It's a great community college! I remember the first time I went, there were so many resources to find that helped me get through that first summer. It was an amazing experience and I would do it again!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Santa Monica College is that the school really cares for each and every one of their students education. Santa Monica College offers many opportunities to students and allows them to transfer from a 2 year college to a 4 year university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Among the several community colleges in CA, Santa Monica College transfers the most students to UC and especially to UCLA not only because it is geographically the closest to that school, but also because it provides a high-quality education. Here are other features I would like to highlight. First, the class size ranges from small to moderate compared to CSU or UC and makes it easy for both students and professors to interact in class more effectively. Second, if you purchase the A.S. sticker worth $19.5, you can enjoy multiple benefits such as free, unlimited big-blue big rides within the Los Angeles County, free printing in the cayton center, discounts in the cafeteria, and so on. Third, the school provides students with amazing counselling service in different locations (Welcome center, counseling complex, Latino center, Scholars office, and Career service center). Fourth, there are always workshops and sometimes the club and college fairs in the campus. Fifth, joining the special programs (scholars program, EOPS, Adelante program, FYL, or Black Collegian Program) allows you to get an earlier enrollment date and to take some special sections of classes. Lastly, here are my tips for making your campus life productive! JOIN the Scholars Program if you want to enhance your chances of getting accepted to the elite universities and GET INVOLVED in club activities based on your own hobby! The only thing I don't like about is it is hard to reach the financial aid office on call so you should meet the officer in person or send them an email with your SCHOOL email address (otherwise, its system would automatically mark your email as a spam.) Thank you!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like how many resources are available to students. You can tell that the faculty and board of directors really care about the well-being and success of the students. I have enjoyed being involved in the athletic department as well and have made many friends from the track team. The renovated parts of campus are really nice and I have taken a lot of fascinating classes. Overall, I really like Santa Monica College.
