Merced College is a great community college to attend with very helpful staff that are there with you along the way. If I had any problems or concerns there was always someone who could help me find a way to fix my situation. In regards to applying to the school and registering for classes it took nothing but five easy steps and I was good to go. Also, programs like work study that help me get a job and gain some awesome knowledge and experience to take with me. Merced College has wonderful professors, top athletic programs and coaches, fun groups to be part of, and a wide variety of courses. If you're not sure what school you want to go to or don't want to spend a lot of money on tuition, this school is the way to go. This community college made my first two years an outstanding experience and I can say they helped me with growth process.

Some professors do not care about their students, others professors do. Complaining to a dean about a professor will yield no results, and the professors would tell you that no matter how many times you report them, nothing would happen to them.

Some staff, especially those in the financial aid office, are rude to students looking for information on their returns. There's only 1 computer science professor out of the whole school.

Food is meh. The classrooms are poor design, worst than the ones in high school.
Merced college is a very small but friendly and welcoming college filled with an abundance of hospitable students and staff. Out of the four semesters I have been here all my proffesors have been extremely helpful and kind making the class way more comfortable and less stressful. The professors make sure to always think of the students constantly assiting them whenever needed, they are also very passionate on the subjects taught and throughly teach them in a way that is easy to understand. Merced college is very peaceful environment that encompasses a close knit community of people striving for excellence.
