MiraCosta College Reviews

I took a couple classes through Mira Costa while still being in High School. Great experience! There are plenty of resources, and every faculty member wants you to succeed. However, the students are not the most motivated, or friendly necessarily. Some are, but many are just there to get by and don't care about getting to know you. Of course, it's not the fault of the school- just a note on the atmosphere. I had a great experience and actually did get to know a couple people.
Review Your College
What I liked about MiraCosta College is the class sizes weren't abundant, and the teachers are awesome. You can always get help and if your not familiar with the campus like I wasn't, don't be aftraid to ask around. The students are super friendly and have no problem pointing you in the right direction! Also, there SURF system is great and makes it easy to register for classes

Thanks MiraCosta! See you in spring term,
Leah Berglund
The students/staff members/ professors in this school are so friendly and welcoming. First of all, the students around campus help convey a positive environment. The staff members are so supportive and encouraging. They make you feel like you care. This school has amazing teachers most importantly! the professors here are genuine, motivating, helpful, and easy to communicate.
