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.

Great college. Wonderful professors, a wide selection of classes, and very nice campus. I’ve received two degrees through this school and am currently in the ADN program there, it’s really a wonderful place to get an education!
I personally am very grateful for the counselors, considering I have had a great experience with 2 of them. However, there was one counselor there that made me feel so stupid and incompetent. I was so unhappy to be joining this school because of that experience, but I was glad to balance it out really soon after with the amazing teachers I had. However, if you are looking for the college experience outside of classes and schoolwork, this isn't it. Sure, there are some things to do on campus, like joining theater or clubs, but there isn't enough variety of things to participate in, so many students are left out, missing on the college experience. It's not a bad school, but if you choose here, just know it's schooling and hardly any fun.
