I love ELAC! TheQuite BrightEducation
I love ELAC! The campus is constantly being remodeled which is a good thing and then can be bad because there isn't a place to congregate, but there is always many activities that are being promoted such as conferences, workshops, clubs, Covered California, Transfer workshops.

The school has some great teachers I'll giveBrightArt & Design Department
The school has some great teachers I'll give it that, however, the learning environment isn't that great. The other students aren't really that friendly, most are pretty isolated just like other community colleges around the Los Angeles area. Despite the large Latino and Asian community here, a few people I've met really can't stand the idea of multiculturalism. In other words, they say they're liberal but their actions say otherwise but even liberals are against multiculturalism, at least in the school it seems like it. Besides the people, the school's library is extremely small due to the fact that there's construction still going on. And apparently, one of friends told me that someone stole the bolts out of the wheels of her car. This school has a bad reputation and to be honest, I kind of agree with that criticism. The teachers might be great but the students here aren't. The bathrooms are somewhat filthy as well. I knew a few people that decided to call this school "bungalow city" due to the fact that most of the classes are in bungalows and not in actual buildings and it's worst when some of the AA complex bungalows are missing windows. But, anyways great teachers, less than satisfactory campus, bad students.

Elac is a good stepping stone for thoseQuite BrightArt & Design Department
Elac is a good stepping stone for those who try. If you apply yourself, try to get involved in campus and really take the time to talk to the faculty, you'll find that there are really wonderful opportunities and advice to be taken. I can only speak for the Art and Graphic Design departments, both of which are located in the nicest, newest facilities (esp. Fine Arts). The new Vincent Price Art Museum is amazing and definitely makes me proud of ELAC. For graphic design, although the faculty is good, there aren't enough labs and because of the lack of funding, the software is not up-to-date. If your major is Fine Arts, I definitely recommend ELAC. If it's Graphic Design I recommend it although I bet there's better jr colleges like SMCC.
