Modesto Junior College Reviews
MJC is a great community college! The whole environment is just awesome and lots of friendly people, very kind, campus police as well is very helpful. The whole staff there. The whole school is filled with faces full of joy and it’ll be a awesome experience definitely.
Modesto Junior College has to be one of the best community colleges in northern California. The science department is amazing, the professors are really hands-on and push you very hard, they want the best for their students. They have multiple programs and resources for students. Some of them include a Starbucks food pantry, where students are able to take bags of Starbucks food that has been donated. Free lunch is given every week and there is free tutoring for all students. The staff and administration are very kind, they help the student achieve their goals and make sure they stay on track. This school does not have dorms which are normal for a community college, but it does provide housing for some students in the agricultural department, I think that is pretty cool.
Attending MJC can be a hit or miss. Most of the professors are amazing, especially the English, Business, Political Science, Sociology, and History professors. In my experience, the math professors aren't the best. My overall experience has been great. Students jobs are only offered to Federal Work Study students, with the exception of the Technical Education and Workplace Development Division Office. If you are looking to join clubs and whatnot, MJC is not the place for that. There isn't much student involvement because most students either work full-time or work two part-time jobs.
