What is your overall opinion of this school?

Santa Monica college is better if you are an art or design student. Also I hope they work on the transfer department. They said they have a high transfer rates but Santa Monica Nursing Department is not partnered with very many schools to promote continuing education. I would hope they work on that more.

Santa Monica College could use a few improvements, but overall is a wonderful school that provides so many opportunities and services to all of its students. You can be extremely successful at SMC if you are willing to take those opportunities that are handed to you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Santa Monica college is a great place for transferring. I am an international student and it is extremely hard to get into a four-year university straight out of high school. So I chose the path to get into a community college and transfer. It is tough to keep up the grades even through college but the small classrooms and helps a lot. Above anything, it is important to have fellow students with the same goals in order to achieve transferring and this school will provide you with all the fellow students help from professors that one needs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a student. The main campus is old and nothing is interesting (Bundy campus looks worst). I suppose the new building they are building looks unique but it will be made for administration offices only (not for students). The CMD campus is very nice and high tech. I had a couple of very good instructors but the online education is completely no good. I am also a veteran attending this campus. The veterans outreach program sucks. The food selection is horrible. My benefits are effected since they are not competent. I am really made since they did not respond to my complaint and its effecting my benefits.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great and clean campus. Great clubs to join and there are professors who are approachable and welcoming to their students. Campuses are very convenient to access through shuttles. Parking can be an issue sometimes but there are other ways for students to get by through other campuses.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Santa Monica College is more of a pitstop along the way of a bigger journey. Most people are not there to make friends, and the social scene is pretty lacking, but the education and class sizes is great. Compared to universities, I've heard that class sizes can get to hundreds of students. My biggest class s far was about fifty students, but the professor still managed to communicate to the entire class. Overall a good community college, I mean I moved to Santa Monica to come here instead of another one closer to my home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great community college for students who love working hard and playing hard simultaneously. The neighborhood is quite beautiful and fun. Some points that need to be considered by potential students is that the traffic is bad most of the times, which means it is easier to commute if you live close to the campus. However, it leads to another problem — the housing problem. The rent is relatively higher than in other areas; it is around 1300-2000 or even more for a private room in Santa Monica since it is also a tourist attraction. Besides the traffic and housing problems that come from the environment instead of the campus, everything is wonderful here. Professors are passionate about teaching, students are really into their studies, and the atmosphere in the campus is just great!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really, really like Santa Monica College. It has been so easy to fit classes into my full time work schedule by making classes available at night and even a few on weekends. I love the class sizes in that they're not too large at all. Also, the teachers all seem very hands-on and helpful. They are easily accessible whether by office hours or email. Lastly, I have been able to take classes at my pace, while taking care of personal situations, and being able to come back and pick up where I left off.
