Mendocino College Reviews
The campus is beautiful, and the teachers are committed to the student's success! It is very affordable and there are ample opportunities for work-study programs. The Library has the most incredible view, with plenty of private study areas. The only place to eat on campus is a local bakery that offers soup and sandwiches, as well as coffee drinks. The campus is in town and very easy to navigate.
Overall I've had a very good experience at Mendocino College. It is a very small campus, and there are limited resources, but they make up for that with the quality of professors and education. Classes tend to be smaller (20-30 students max) which allows students to get to know the professors and easily seek help. We have a very nice chemistry department that is equipped with state of the art spectroscopy equipment which I find very surprising for being a small rural community college. Mendocino College may be small, but the staff ensures that the quality of education meets university standards.
I love how teachers made an effort to get to know you personally so they could benefit you to the best of our abilities! The campus is super diverse, and very inviting.
