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.
Review Modesto Junior College
Modesto Junior College is I would say a smaller JC. There are two campuses, one new, one old. I played volleyball here my freshman year and loved it. Although sports are not a very big thing here fans wise. There are so many different types of people in each class that you will meet. You are bound to find people you get alone with. Just like all schools there are good and not so good professors. Over all the College is not a horrible as the surrounding communities make it seem
The Child Development Department ROCKS! This department is full of amazing professors who are always willing to help. Every child development course I have taken has been informative and enjoyable.
