Monterey peninsula college has the great environment for students to focus on their academic life since professors are so helpful and inspirational. The professors are very knowledgable about their fields! Classes are always filled with learning, and I've never felt unfullfilled in a class. They are moderately sized as well, which helps with participation.

I really enjoy the diversity of the students, faculty, and staff here at Monterey Peninsula College. The campus is filled with students that are eager to learn new materials that are relevant to their majors. I am so glad I chose to attend Monterey Peninsula College!
MPC has been a wonderful college experience for me thus far. The campus is nestled in a fairytale-like forest and is very well kept throughout each semester. The school offers an array of vocational programs in addition to their vast collection of classes. I, myself will be applying for the nursing program. MPC has elevated my education and I appreciate all the professors that have helped me succeed in my college career.
