The school has aBrightOther
The school has a wealth of brilliant professors. The professors I had were very passionate in teaching and motivated students to learn. Many of them were/are established professionals in their prospective fields so the credibility is there. The education is great here and it's cheap! :]

I HATE THIS SCHOOL.BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I HATE THIS SCHOOL. i transfered here from another community college in hopes that it would make it more easy for me to get into sfsu. boy was I wrong. I only needed three more classes to transfer and none of it went smoothly all the classes are packed and the enrollment system is confusing and no one was helpful. one person told me one thing then someone else another. I felt like no one could care less about me and no one would help me they just all relied on the computer system to handle everything. the only think I enjoy about the school is the campus (beautiful city views) the mission campus is all new with really nice mac computer labs. the main campus is big like a university and the newer parts are nice but the old ones are AWEFUL so ugly and not taken care of at all, most of the students there are so getto and act like its just a place to hang out and sell drugs. I honestly wished I never came here three years of hard work and I feel like they just ruined it for me.

CCSF has a number of incredibly devoted professors,Not so bright
CCSF has a number of incredibly devoted professors, brimming with encouragement and optimism. The college attracts high quality, well educated teachers, with altruistic natures. However, a students experience here varies greatly, depending on personal drive and devotion. The professors can inspire you to discover your passion, and you may find yourself working harder than you thought possible to prepare yourself for your dream 4 year college. However, it is just as easy to find classes that offer no real struggle or insight, and act as a gateway to any old 4 year college with lax requirements. If you look for challenging and devoted teachers, you will find their expectations parallel those of the highest caliber universities. This said, it is a community college, and in so there are classes for students at any level, including basic skills, and those with multiple prerequisites. I give this college top marks, as it offers non traditional students (those who dont bounce from high school to college) a new way to view the world, and their place in it.
