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.
Review Modesto Junior College
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.
I liked how the two campuses were so different from each other. One was really up-to-date, and the other was older and had a lot more of a social environment around it. I also found it very helpful that there was a bus that came by for free to pick up students and take them from campus to campus. It came often enough for you to be able to make your next class. I learned a lot from my classes that I took, but I believe it depends a lot more on the teaching style of the professor. A good way to find the best professor there for you is going online on "rate my professor." MJC always has great staff there to help you with any of your general questions. They're available in offices, and at the beginning of the semesters they have tables set up outside that anyone can walk up to for help/inquiries.
