I would recommend Lost Medanos College to anyone interested in a quality education. They have friendly, well-qualifed professors who are interested in student success. They are willing to meet with you to offer help and support. There are two campus locations providing more available classess. They also offer great Math support! Attendance at LMC is very affordable. Three of my siblings have completed all of the general education courses, then transferred to, and graduated from a 4 year University. That is my path as well and I will be starting at Azua Pacific University this Fall. The college is well connected with the UC system and many of the UCs automatically contact with you if you have a good GPA and assist with the transfer process.

What I love the most about Los Medanos college is how supportive and invested they are with my studies. The professors are the best! Additionally, whenever I call the school someone is prompt to pick up and attend me very generously. I truly feel taken care of at this school.
My overall experience at Los Medanos College has been pretty good. The school offers so much help with everything. They have programs that help with tuition and books for not only prospective students, but young mothers and even veterans. They provide tuition fee waivers, textbook vouchers, school supplies, parking permits, monthly bus passes, and on-campus child care.
The college has great tutoring. There is a math lab, a computer lab, and a core room where you can get tutoring in English and other humanities. There are also programs such as the transfer program, mesa program, umoja program, and even transfer academy. These programs help with your progress to getting your associates degree.
