I have attended Modesto Junior College steady for 4 years. I know its is a 2 year school, yet I changed my major a few times, but thats why I decided to go there! In the last 6 years, I have seen Modesto Junior college grown and become a place I was proud to attend. With newly remodeled buildings and state of the art facilities, I was happy to sign up for the next semester. The instructors I had were often very good, having only a few that I disliked.

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 has professors that care about you. If you need aid with where you're headed with your degree, there are people there who can help/advise you- that is the only reason I give 3 stars. The college campus needs improvements in security. Cars get broken into almost weekly, and students getting mugged/harassed by homeless people has been ongoing. MJC has two campuses, and East Campus needs more renovating, specifically Founders Halls' building's. Classrooms in Founders Halls sometimes have tech like overheads and screen projectors and speakers to be faulty and interfere with the class. Thankfully they have shown they have made some improvements. There is more parking space for students, they have made bus rides between both campuses free as long as you have your student ID. I rate Modesto Junior College a 3/5 and I hope with more improvements to its campus and security I can rate it higher soon.
