In addition to academics each college also provides extracurricular activities that allow students to develop leadership skills outside the classroom environment. These activities include student clubs and organizations that help students network with other students and faculty members while engaging in meaningful dialogue about current events. With the help of faculty advisors and counselors these community colleges provide a great opportunity for those looking for an affordable education in California without having to sacrifice quality or resources available to their students. The campuses are full of culture and diversity which gives each student an enriching experience while pursuing their academic goals. Additionally, many of the community colleges have strong ties with local businesses which allows students access to internships and job opportunities upon completion of their degree program. The state also has a number of transfer agreements between two-year institutions that make it easier for students who wish to continue their education at a four-year university after completing their associate’s degree at one of California’s community colleges.
