Having spent sometime at Contra Costa College (CCC), basically it just depends on what you are interested in.

Yes, it is located in a bad part of town...and I wouldn't recommend it if you work during the day, and go there at night. It is a pretty scary place there at night especially walking out to your car since the parking lot is extremely dim.

Also, for people that have to rely on public transportation to get there, BE CAREFUL. It get's extremely scary at night at the bus stops just waiting for your bus. So if you can, get a ride from a friend.

The teachers there are a mix-bag. Some of them are GOOD, but some of them are just MEH. Before you sign up for a class, do some research about the teachers by asking people who went there (if you can) and find out who the best teachers are...

CCC is okay, not in the best location, but if you are going to go there, be careful at night, and find out who is the best teachers there.

I took a class here at Contra Costa College during the summer to learn a little more about digital editing. The professor was very knowledgeable and easy to approach with any concerns. The computers and software were of the latest technology which is good because I can't afford the software right now. I did gain more experience using them which made me more confident editing images with the cheaper versions of editing software.

I've been taking several classes the last couple of years at Contra Costa College just to finish up my general education requirements at UCSF. Their classes are cheaper here and I can get them transferred. The only bad side is that it isn't in a good neighborhood and Im always worried that my car might get stolen or broken into.

Contra Costa College is located in a really bad neighborhood very close to Richmond and I would not recommend going there especially if you need to work during the day and need to take evening classes. They don't really offer anything unique anyway from other community colleges and their nursing program requires more prerequisites than most other community colleges.

I recently took a class at Contra Costa College and I have to admit, I felt that the learning expereince was not comparable to other junior colleges. Everything in the class was dumbed down, I felt like I was back in junior high school. I got an A i the class, but felt like I did not learn anything. Also I did not feel to safe when it was getting dark. There was not enough security on campus and pathways were not well lit. I had a hard time walking to my car. I feel like they need public safety to walk students to their cars.

Contra Costa College is a community college located not far from the freeway. The area it is in though is not very safe and I would not recommend taking night classes here because it can get really scary. They have a lot of tall trees and I think they don't have enough lighting to light up the paths.
