I have enjoyed my education at Modesto Junior College. Over the past few years, MJC has began to update their buildings and expand their West Campus. I have utilized Modesto Junior College's science, math, and child development programs and have found that the classes exceeded my expectations! The professors have been phenomenal and the material covered in class has been quite enlightening. I would recommend any graduation senior to start at Modesto Junior College before continuing onto a UC or CSU.

Modesto Junior College is great place to start your education. Especially, if you are like me, who has been out of school for 15 years. At first I was scared of returning back to school But, after talking to my professors about how I felt, they only encouraged me to keep going. Since Ive started school its getting easier to understand my classes and my purpose of being in school. I would totally recommend this school to anyone!
First of all, the only downside about the college is I was expecting more out of the educational portion while attending. The staff is very invested in their students which is phenomenal and great for proper student involvement. However, the majority of students who attend MJC seem to be lacking the devotion to getting a higher education and tend to complain about the work that the staff gives. Other than the lack in motivation by the students, the staff offers great support systems and the school does everything in their power to motivate students. The clubs along with ASMJC are also phenomenal and give students an amazing outreach to their busy stressful lives. Furthermore, the sports are a great source of exercise for students and are prided for their successful wins. Overall, my experience here at MJC is good, however I was expecting more regarding my education because I feel high school was harder than my semesters here.
