When I first attended college at MSJC, nearly 20 years ago, I was so supported by the teachers. They saw that I knew what they were teaching me even though I wasn't very good at tests. Several of them would give me verbal and/or physical tests because they took the time to see that if I took a written test I would overthink the answers and get many of them wrong, when they asked me verbally to do the physical action or explain what the answers were I would ace the tests! I am so appreciative of that. The thing that I would like to see change is that the child care center would be available for the full summer session, it's currently only open the first 3 out of 8 weeks. I'm a single mother and really need this to be successful in school. They also do not have any student housing, which is very frustrating.

Mount San Jacinto college offers smaller class sizes which allows for a more effective learning environment. When professors are able to interact with the class it provides a more memorable experience. In addition the professors are all very passionate about teaching. The small campus allows busy students to get from class to class quickly and easily. Last but not least MSJC offers its students plenty of resources. My favorite resource is the Learning Resource Center. There you can get assistance from excellent tutors in just about every subject.
If you plan on attending MSJC, which I highly recommend, be sure to arrive with plenty of time to find parking. In addition, you may want to bring a lunch because, the cafferteria is known for having a long wait time, the food is low quality and overpriced. In conclusion despite a couple draw backs, MSJC does an excellent job doing what it’s designed to do, provide students a quality education.
This is a great community college and it has been very good to me! The professors I’ve had have all been excellent. There are many courses available and three different campuses to find the classes you need, all within an easy drive from each other. I’ve been very lucky to have continued my education here.
