The professors at Cisco College are the most genuine and friendliest people. All the teachers are there for each student and want each and every one of us to succeed in the class room. Cisco College was like a second home to me for two years. Walking through the halls and having counselors and even the teachers talk to you was nice. It makes you feel like somebody.
