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.

The majority of Professors at this campus are caring, passionate, and effective in their teaching methods. I have learned a great deal since being a part of Modesto Junior College and have carried lessons that I am able to utilize in daily life from this school. It is easy to prepare for a career or for transfer to a four-year college at this school. I also love how the school works to involve the community by hosting free "science nights" and showcasing free informational films every semester.
Good learning environment for community college students, especially those looking to get their general eds before transferring into a four year university. Many programs and advisers who can help you succeed in throughout your college career and to help guide you into the right direction, wherever you wish to go. Despite the many different classes and general eds that the college offers it can be difficult at times to get into major classes like sciences or maths.
