WHAT I LIKED

What I like about Solano is that it offers a lot of different majors and has a whole variety of different classes so you can take them for whatever major you're pursuing. It's also cheaper for students of all kinds of ages in case they could not afford to go straight to a four year.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

One thing I don't like is how they had to cancel the theater class I've been wanting to take twice since they haven't found an instructor yet which is disappointing.

WHAT I LIKED

As someone who is immersed in Solano Community College, I work diligently with others to provide a better, and more comfortable experience for the students. For the most part, the majority of the professors are caring, like-minded individuals who genuinely enjoy their position in the school.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

On the other hand, there are professors who may show favoritism towards other students and sometimes degrade their students. I experienced this firsthand on numerous occasions, none of which I will disclose for their privacy.

WHAT I LIKED

The transfer counselor didn't give me the correct information about the TAG.

WHAT I LIKED

I have enjoyed my experience with Solano Community College. I am finishing my last semester and I have had to finish the majority of my courses work online due to the pandemic. This has not been favorable, but we have all had to adapt. When I was in class I found the facility and staff wonderful and helpful. Solano is a great place to start and I recommend going if you are looking for the Community College experience.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

You should be aware that there are many resources available to help offset the burden of the cost of going to school. If you are considering bettering your future with higher education do not let the cost dissuade you. Many colleges are happy to help you sort out funding. The staff and programs are available, you must advocate for yourself and ask for help.

WHAT I LIKED

I like Solano it's straightforward, you have the support you need you meet people from all sorts of backgrounds and the buildings are nice not falling apart which is good. Just made a new library, I would say that for professors you really do have a 50/50 shot of getting a good one or a terrible one.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Check rate my professor before picking a professor in Solano, some professors are very tough.

WHAT I LIKED

Since I started at Solano when the Covid-19 pandemic started I was unable to have in-person classes. However, the professors and counselors I worked with were very helpful despite the struggles.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Talking to or getting appointments with counseling could be difficult sometimes but it wasn't too bad for the most part.
