I was an online, adult, returning student at Mission College, Santa Clara, CA with only a few classes on-campus. The instructors were helpful and always available to answer questions. The online discussion posted by classmates helped solved problem-related questions. Overall, the interaction between instructors, classmates resolved most of the academic-related questions. Tutoring was available all the time. College library hours were extended during the exams.
The chat at the engagement center available online immediately helped answers my question. For example, how to clear prerequisites required for a course. The academic counselor was available all the time to counsel or help in choosing the right class. Moreover, students were always encouraged to apply for financial help.
Overall, my experience at Mission college was very fulfilling and I recommend this two-year community college to all returning students.

I am currently a freshman in college at mission. The campus is looking very nice! Though there is construction for a new building it can get a little crowded but its for a good cause. There are two new buildings so far and they are looking great, it shows how they want to attract students to the campus, which is good because so far all my professors have been great. I am also in a sport and the sports director is very nice! She let me know that if I needed anything to speak with her and she'll help me with it! Such a great school overall.
I attended Mission College as a dual-enrolled student and had a great experience there. The campus is fairly small and the new Student Engagement Center is really nice. Cafeteria food is decent and there are a lot of food options really close to campus. All of my professors were helpful and seemed to really care about their students. Class sizes were also nice and small; I never really had trouble registering for the classes I wanted. It's easy to get help if you need it, whether from tutoring, counseling, or office hours. I think Mission College does its job really well.
