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.
I am a freshman at mission community college. I am on my third semester and so far mission college has provided me with most of the necessary tools for me to be successful. As of now I have a 4.0 gpa because the teachers I have had so far supported and challenged me to become a better student. I play softball for mission college. Mission college has not had a softball team in six years and I had the pleasure of being on the first team, so I can see how we continue to grow as a team. The only thing that has caused me to feel discontented is that the financial aid office does not take in a person's whole life into account when they decide who qualifies and who does not qualify for financial aid. If mission college provided or helped people who are financially unable to pay for college on their own, my experience at Mission college would have been excellent.
