Great place to start
The academic advising was not the best
I am only attending Chemeketa Community College because of the financial advantage of having the first two years of college paid for. This is the only reason I would recommend attending Chemeketa. I am participating in a fairly specific transfer program. Essentially, the program allows students to complete the exact requirements for an engineering degree at various Oregon schools (in my case, Oregon State University for a mechanical engineering degree.) Due to High School achievement, I received several financial aid packages, as well as financial aid due to my low-income status. I am therefore receiving cash payments every term, which is being saved to attend OSU and complete my degree.
Though small class sizes and classes not taught by master students present an advantage, people attending are attending with the goal of quickly and cheaply completing a degree. Therefore Chemeketa students are often not the most sociable. And, while this doubtless does not apply to non-COVID times, the only food accessible to students is through the vending machine. With the exception of one sketchy vending machine, there is practically no access to healthy food for your average student. Also, in a community college, there is no such thing as student living quarters. While not a problem for me, it is something to be considered.
Remote Learning left many professors scrambling to figure out the new class systems, and for many, it took much longer than others. Many classes felt monotonous but there were also a few I highly enjoyed and learned things I still carry with me today.
In a lot of classes, there was a disconnected feeling between the professor and among students. For many classes, I walked away at the end of the term knowing no one knew, and not for lack of trying. Opportunities to connect with other students and professors on and off-campus are low.
I really like the affordability and many of the professors are great.
I’ve had a few professors that were not my favorite to deal with.
All the teachers were great and super understanding. Easy to work with and very helpful.
not really anything
