I like that at El Centro, students with lower incomes who can’t afford a 4-year university experience right off the bat have a place where they are welcome to learn and thrive just like the 4-year universities, at a very affordable price. Teachers and administrators are very happy to assist in any way they can.
I don’t like the lack or drastically reduced opportunities to socialize, especially for people who don’t find it so easy to socialize. Students go into El Centro to get to class and get out immediately after to work or just their personal lives. There are no sporting activities, fewer clubs and societies, and socializing opportunities as a whole. I get that it’s a community college, but with my time at El Centro, I haven’t felt like I was getting the true college experience my other friends tell me so much about.
