Network Is Great – Everest has 2 computer labs with about 20 computers each, at least that I've seen so for. There is also a library with 10 computers and a career center with 8. Computer access is adequate, although sometimes classes have to share lab resources when multiple classes need computer time.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Is It Worth the Price – The tuition at Everest does seem high at first. I could have gone to a community college for about 10%-15% the cost. But when you take into consideration the small class size, which means for more individual attention than you could possible get from the much larger and more crowded community college classes, I feel the cost is quite reasonable. I qualified for the Pell Grant and student loans for a total of just under $15,000 and another small loan, under $1,000 to cover the balance. I have complete my first term and made the Dean's List with a 3.78 GPA. I feel the quality of the education here is worth every penny.

Why Everest College? Everest College has become my second home, and the staff, my second family. I did something really stupid about 8 years ago and ended up going to prison on 09/17/2007. After spending 31 months in prison, I was released with little or no support structure in the middle of Los Angeles. My probation officer got me temporary housing for 90 days through the "Second Chance Act" and I spent that 90 days looking for a job. Unable to find employment, I had to leave the aparment and take to the streets. After 9 months on the streets, I was feeling pretty despondant and was considering suicide. Then I thought, "what do I need to do to get out of this situation". "Upgrade my education" was the answer I came up with.
I had received a number of emails from various colleges trying to recruit me, but for some reason, one stood out. Everest College. I called and was put through to Toni Azurduy in admissions. The next day I visited Everest College and spoke to Toni in person, and she explained the program offerings I had to choose from. I signed the papers, and was once again, a college student, my last stint in college being from 1979-1986 at Chaffey College. Was I nervous about returning to school after 25 years and taking on the debt of student loans. ABSOLUTELY! The staff has been extremely supportive as have my fellow students. My instructors have been greatful that I have been willing to share my story with my fellow,muchyounger students. The admiration I get from everybody for the hardships I've overcome to be here is palpable. I can honestly say that I consider Everest to be my second home and the people here to be my second family.
