Laney College has been a dream come true for me. Laney is paving the way for my future. When I first came here and walked on campus, I could feel a positive vibe and I would look around and see students who r motivated and determined to future themselves in life. The students are really nice and very helpful. What I liked most about Laney is the diversity of students and the help you receive coming here. Whenever i needed help, the staff would go above and beyond to make sure you are on track with everything. That really touched my heart. I knew I was at home. As a student, you to have to do your part in staying focused and not giving up. Whatever resources they have, do take advantage of them. They are really helpful. Stay postive in everything you do and if you need help, never be afraid to ask.

Laney College has an excellent location and a community which has a will to never stop learning. It is like a home away from home. It allowed me to grow both as a student and as a person. I feel after attending this institution that it has prepared me well for being able to transfer to a 4 year university.
