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!
The way I have made my education here at Modesto Junior College memorable is that I have made each opportunity to keep up on my school work on going. The learning center is a huge benefit to all students at all times. Free math tutoring all day every day throughout the week. All sorts of other tutors are there to help you in whatever you need. The counselors are spot on if you know what your major is but if not then they kinda are as good as you are just by yourself through finding the right college for you and what classes you should take to transfer with an AA. All in all the MJC life is not half bad. The on campus food isn’t the best but most Wednesday’s you get free lunch like subway and other great food for free!
