I liked that Cosumnes River College had teachers that cared about your education. They would try their best to help you find resources if you needed help with classes. They had tutoring hours and really good tutors that knew what they were talking about.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I would like for the prices of the food not be overpriced, especially when people come from low-income. I think food should be accessible to everyone.

This school goes above and beyond to ensure you reach your goals by providing accessible assistance tailored to your educational interest. They support their students and show a genuine desire for all of their student's success.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only thing I would say I didn’t like about this school would be that my experience occurred during the start of the pandemic which extremely limited my experience, however, that is not the fault of the school, therefore in all fairness, I have no complaints. This is a great school.

There are a lot of knowledgeable teachers and great resources for students to succeed and continue on to university. The campus' bookstore also has plenty of things that students may need, like scientific calculators, textbooks, folders, and more.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Cosumnes River College currently has very strict vaccination requirements, which makes it very difficult for students who may not want to get the vaccination.

As a community college, it offers a great experience; the professors are great, the campus is surprisingly well put together, and the students are all great to talk to. Good distance from Sacramento and other major areas, and acts as a nice stepping stone to transfer to a university.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Not many glaring issues about Cosumnes River College, although one does need to carry a lot of initiative as most college programs and scholarships are only available online. You likely will not be aware of these programs unless you're in constant contact with a counselor or always keep tabs on the academic calendar.

I took two years off before college and I was so scared about going back to school after those two years. The website and Canvas are so easy to navigate and you can access everything from one place. The Professors are also great for the most part.

I like the relaxed environment, with all the wonderful trees planted around campus. All my professors so far have been really awesome and understanding. The classes usually aren't more than 40 people, so you can really develop a relationship with your professor. The lab rooms are all really nice and we have access to some really cool tools. I really appreciate how they waived the parking fee during COVID, that has financially helped me a ton! There are plenty of support groups for students, which I also appreciated. Probably the biggest selling point of Cosumnes River College is its cost--if you're a first-time California student, you get free tuition for the first two years!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

So far, my biggest complaint is the bathrooms near the computer/business wing are way too small and could use an update...the bathrooms in the cafeteria or the Winn Center are pretty nice though! You also have to be very aware of your surroundings at night because you never know who is out there and what their intentions may be. For peace of mind, I recommend carrying pepper spray and parking near the 911 stations in case of trouble arises. Also, I've heard it is better to park in the lot rather than the parking garage
