Mt.sac is a top community college in California, it's even recongnizeable in the nation. Here you can definitely find a lot more great resources compare to other community colleges, that is also why so many people trying to come here. I worked as a front counter for the counseling department on campus and I can guarantee you every counselor would try their best to help you find a answer. That's same for each every department, Transfer department, Financial Aid, Assessment center, Admissons & Records and so on, it just feels like a tradition here people are willing to offer help! However, you also have to be prepared to spend more time finding a parking spot during the begining of a semester, the first two weeks will be parking free, so be prepared it would be super packed! The food on campus is not that great, if you only eat once a while that should feel okay, but PLEASE do not eat the campus food everyday, you will hate it. Luckily, there is a plaza of restaurants next to the campus

During a zoom section, most people would keep their camera off except the professor , doesn't feel like that much of engaging. But most of the professors are trying to have more group discussions, give more time to ask questions during class, and maybe group projects to the students connected. For those non-zoom classes which the professor just uploads the powerpoint on Canvas and you can watch them anytime you want would be more flexiable for your schedule, and you can contact the teacher pretty easily if you have any questions, they either have a lot office hours or they just like to respond email fast!
Exams , quizs are all open internet & book, which means it's not hard to get a high score on them, but you still need to study hard, sometimes some questions on exam might be tricky and require a deeper understanding which you can't find the answer online.
This is honestly a very transfer-friendly campus! The staff members that I have interacted with have all been quite supportive as long as students are willing to ask for their help and understanding. The counselors are very well-versed in their knowledge of the transfer process as well. Not only that, but there are required workshops that help students learn more about the different certificate and degree pathways that they can take in order to reach success in the future. I highly recommend Mt. SAC if you plan on transferring from a community college to a four-year university or even just getting a certificate or associate's degree in a field that you are interested in! Although the campus and surrounding area are not the most amazing, you really do get your money's worth and more when it comes to academics. You simply have to be proactive in receiving the education you want in order to make the most out of your time here.
