Hi, Im kinda new here. Anyway, Im looking to transfer away to another CC that has a TAP program and/ or easier transferability to a good UC or private school.

So anyway does anyone have any suggestions about housing for the following colleges:
Northern Cali: Skyline, Chabot, Merritt, Las Positas, Contra Costa, Mission, SJ Delta, West Hills, and Ohlone.

Southern Cali: Desert, Victor Valley, San Bernadino Valley, Santiago Canyon, Irvine Valley, Golden West, Cypress, San Diego City, Imperial Valley, Miracosta, Palomar College, El Camino, LA Mission, and College of the Canyons.

Im looking for a place that a lot of students live at. College affiliated housing would be cool too.

In addition, if anyone can, itd be nice to know the kind of people that go to some of the colleges. Like is it black, white, asian, latino, mix, that kinda thing. Party scene??

    I know for a fact (even though they aren't on your list) that Sierra College and Feather River College in NorCal both have dorms on campus and a pretty good "on-campus" atmosphere.

    Otherwise, very few Cali CC's really seem to have that...

    Hope that this helps a little.

    Currently, I am a student at El Camino College in the South Bay area. As mentioned in your post, I'm sorry to break it to you, ECC does not offer any sort of housing. However, there are lot of students that are often hooking up with others and renting places out. Maybe you can find something around?
    ECC has a great transfer rate, 2nd highest transfer to UCLA next to SMC. The school also has a great TAP and TAG program with every UC and Cal State campus. I highly recommend this school.
