Merced College Reviews
The teachers at Merced College are great! Smaller classes allow you to engage more with your professor and gives you a better understanding of what is going on within the class. It is very easy to register for classes and the counselors work quickly and efficiently to make sure every student is succeeding. Taking classes at Merced College is a great way to prepare for when you plan to transfer. One thing I wish would change is the number of classes offered. The classes fill up quite quickly, and I feel that making more classes would allow for every student to take the exact classes they need.
Merced College has a very clean campus. Although it is quite small, that is also what makes it great! There are maps on the campus, and the building are labeled. The college here has the best Liberians and a very resourceful library. You must really use as many resources as you can at the college to help you financially and educationally.
Merced college is a very nice community college in size, students, academics , and professors. T college has many designated study centers across the campus to better suit the students. The students are very diligent in their studies, however they still find the time to have fun and play games. The professors are excellent, since they take the time to answer any questions the students may have to help them better understand the material.
