| My experiences here at Cerro Coso for 2 years has been great. The staff and faculty was friendly but the campus site was isolated, which is expected when you are living in a small city like Bishop, California. Anyway, the downside is that the community college does not offer any good programs except for the general education requirements at the campus location. It is hard to be selective in what program you want to get into and would be forced to choose under a few selections. If you are looking to transfer at another university or a 4 year by completing your general education, this would be an excellent choice. Other than that, I would say try to avoid this school if you have other choices. |

| I actually attended CConline which is the online program at Cerro Coso Community College. So I can't say much for the actual campus. However, I can say that the quality of education offered in the online program is surprisingly high for a community college. |
I was impressed at the direct communication with faculty and students that I got online. The online classes are true to teachers styles; they don't make me feel disconnected from people. I am a very social and--I hate to admit it--lazy person. I was a little wry about attending an online college because I was afraid to sacrifice a social life or be subjected to becoming a self-motivated independent learner. Such was not the case. I realized that although I wasn't going to become life long friends with any of the students I met online I had much more time to hang outwith my friends outside of school because i could complete my homework at non-traditional hours. As to being self-motivated: you really only need to be as self-motivated as you would be in traditional classes. The teachers make sure that due dates are posted, weekly assignments are clearly stated, lectures are helpful just like a typical class and the teachers post grades swiftly and are willing to help if the grade is less than satisfactory.
The only thing that I would say is a negative about this college is that some of the teachers impose their agenda unwelcomed into the course material. Unfortunately, this is pressent in both traditional and online schools.One more note, this school is very welcoming to home school and high school students. The staff is friendly and everyone is easy to get a hold of. Including the counselors who never wait more than a day to return my phone calls.

| I really do enjoy going toschool here, and probably wouldnot attenda differentcollege,because I own my home in a near by small town. I am a student worker on campus as well, and have made an abundent amount of friends, be students and staff. The atmospher here is great and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I work in hte Learning Assistant Center, and have had the pleasure of being part of the life style around here that makes this college what it is. I have been involved with the student body association and various other clubs as well, if you like small schools and friendly people then you would enjoy goingto school hereat Cerro Coso Community College, but if you are expecting a big university style school with lots and I mean loits of thiings to do, well then you need to look somewhere else. Small schools means more one on one attention, and this is definitly got that. |
