I have attended other colleges in the past and West Los Angeles College has a sense of COMMUNITY. What I mean is, when you step on campus you get this sense that everyone there is open to seeing you for who you are and they won't put you down for who you are not. I have had wonderful experiences between my fellow classmates as well as my professors. I have always been able to ask questions and never feel like what I was asking was a dumb questions. The environment is overall encouraging. I highly recommend this campus as it has been a life changing place for my studies.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back and talk to myself I tell myself to start searching for scholarships as a freshman because paying for school is hard. I would tell myself to take track and field seriously, so I could get a scholarship because I'm actually good at running. I would say hold off on working and run, not to trade in doing a sport and being in clubs for a job. If I coud go back I would tell myself to live, not to be so shy. To get good grades so I could qualify for all the scholarships out there and not have to pass up the ones that say 3.0 gpa only. I would tell myself the transition isn't hard at all rather smooth actually, and not to worry. I would tell myself to prepare now for college and transferring so when the time comes it'll be a breeze.

  10. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating thing about my school would have to be the cost of books. The pricing is ridculous when it comes to buying different books every semester. My only problem is when the school buys your books back, they only give you less than half of what you paid, and thats only if they buy the books back. It hurts even more when you dont recieve financial aid to pay for your books.
