Save lots of money by going to thisQuite Bright
Save lots of money by going to this community college.
Classes are hard to get into in the beginning but once you are working towards your major, you'll find it easier.

Basically the students are from the surrounding high schools. And the students are usually friendly, just need approaching. There is a high school behind the college.

Planned improvements with new building coming for Fall 2012 and Spring 2013. Not much of a "quad" in this college.

Wilmington is a populated town but student activity-wise it is a ghost town. You definitely want to have a car as there is no food choices within walking distance. Student cafe and bookstore dominate when it comes to business competition. Unlike LA city college or El Camino college.

Faculty is hit and miss basically. There are hardly any professors in the middle of the spectrum. Either you hate them or love them. Don't expect for high-level math professors to have perfect English accents.

Staff is horrendous on the other hand. Janitors lock up doors so they won't have to keep locking and unlocking them (Tech building). Offices open late, close early. Certain key people help it run smoothly however.Services are so and so. 2 ATM machines on campus. Plenty walk-in computers that run decently in the library. Wifi available only inside a building. Wifi account is a joke however, since anyone can use student, student username and password.

Question
LAHC is a commuter college.Quite Bright
LAHC is a commuter college. You get your credits and then you go whereever you go. Much of the campus was falling apart when I initally started going. There was a problem with people peeing on the floor in the Seahawk Center's women's restrooms. Unfortunately, those were some of the nicer restrooms and they always rank of urine. I made it a point to look my professors up on RateMyProfessor.com before I registered. Even so, some of the professors can be really arrogant or just terrible lecturers. There are many good professors, but if you're doing any science or math courses there will be extra study time. Sometimes there can be violence because it is an inner city school, but I never saw any during my time.The cops are helpful and will escort you, they're usually patrolling campus anyway. The tutoring resources are free and easy to find. For 22-30 dollars a unit, it's pretty good.
