Mt. San Jacinto College Reviews

The professors at MSJC are wonderful. They know their craft and are able to teach it well. After all the years I've spent here, I've gotten very comfortable traversing the campus and talking to the teachers. The classes are filled to the last desk, but the teachers and the lectures make it seem like you are in a classroom filled with like-minded students. The courses offered could be more varied, but what they offer is above basic and you're able to get everything you need to start your career and even transfer!
Review Your College
The good: both the Menifee and San Jacinto campuses are pretty nice. I've had some great professors. There is a robust selection of databases to use (once you learn that they're there).

The bad: counseling is almost non-existent and the website is a dinosaur--it's literally easier to find the page you need by trying keywords in the search bar than by navigating the menus. Some of the professors and teachers have NO IDEA how Blackboard or file management in general work, and that makes online and hybrid classes a bit risky.
For the majority of the year I took night classes and although many were filled with mainly adults it was still a very enjoyable experience. The people are very friendly and the teachers are incredibly understanding. Though they're not pushovers, they won't buy the "I was sick let me make up this test" excuse over anything. But they are willing to accommodate your plans and such. They also teach very well, all my professors are very experienced in their field and have a lot of outside experience aside from teaching that helps us understand the topic at hand more.
