MiraCosta College Reviews
The professors are great! My overall experience with this college was amazing. I took two excellerated units as a highschool student- both history classes and they were very informative. The age range in the classes varied from highschool students to middle age adults. The professors were very passionate about the subjects they were teaching and had a lot of information and experience to share. I would recommend taking excellerated courses because it is a good way to get some classes out of the way over summer and you can save a ton of time and money. These classes count as a normal class would twoards a college transcript.
I have been to Miramar, Santa Barbara, and Grossmont college. Miracosta is by far my favorite college. I have never had a comparable professor than those at Miracosta. The counselors will put so much effort into making sure that their students succeed. Not only do the counselors help map out your academic plan, but also ensure that the mental health of their students is always met and encouraged. The resources for success are endless and the support you receive from the staff and fellow students is incredible. The campus itself is beautiful as well. The San Elijo campus is intimate and gorgeous. The lawns throughout the campus are adored by all of the students and staff. Sitting out in the lawn chairs or having lunch at a table on the grass is such a serene setting. The oceanside campus is huge and rivals some of the 4 year campuses I have been to. With the clock tower, sprawling lawns, water fountains, huge cafeteria, giant library, and unrivaled peer tutoring.
For a community college, this is a great campus overall and they offer plenty of student services such as free tutoring, math and writing center for academic assistance. MiraCosta is very open towards diversity, a very safe place for individuals of various backgrounds; such as the LGBTQIA community. There is a club for individuals who identify with them, and clubs in general such as chess, philosophy, etc. Another great aspect is the health services and free counseling provided for students in need. MiraCosta acknowledges there is a homelessness issue with some students; in return, a food pantry is provided for low-income students (for anyone in need of food actually). From the hours of 7-9 am, the gym showers are available to anyone without access to clean running water. In general, a wonderful campus filled with opportunity and assistance for students needs.
