Merritt College Reviews
This school is an excellent choice when it comes to getting any sort of degree or certificate. Personally they have the greatest teachers, known for multiple subjects but the ones that put Merritt on the map is Nursing programs coming in at number one in the state. Science courses, communications, psychology, Paralegal Studies.
I love how diverse the community on campus is. The teachers are amazing! They really care about their students and are always readily available to answer questions. The campus is beautiful and very safe.
I liked the fact that it was accesible,and there was a bus from the station to transport one to school. The instructors were also very helpful in ensuring you excelled and making sure to explain or clarify any confusions in the suject. The administratative department were also friendly and assisting student to see counselors and book appintments conviniently. For me ,coming from africa into america and meeting instructors like these who didnt give you a hard time in the class, was great.All i needed to do was study and i excel.I am appreciative of that. The only imporvement would be to provide dorm accomodations for students coming from far.
