San Diego Mesa College Reviews
Online classes were good. I, personally, don't enjoy online classes since I prefer to be in an actual classroom. However, the online classes I took were well-organized. The professors made sure to provide great lectures and information needed to understand the topics!
Mesa completely transformed my view on our education system. Throughout my 2 & a half years there I met some really dedicated professors & faculty. Students are friendly too & will help you if you're open to asking. Mesa saved me so much money, especially because I was involved in their Promise Program. This school has SO MANY RESOURCES for lower income students & 1st generation college students which I really really appreciate. I honestly don't know why this school has a C+ rating. If you don't use ratemyprofessor.com as you pick your classes, your experience may be very different from mine. Going to this school was such a privilege. No student debt, no food insecurity, no lack in resources. The classes were fairly easy too, especially with the giant tutoring center in the Learning Resource Center (basically our campus library). Seek out these resources, always ask questions, and you'll get the support you need. I really can't complain, Mesa was unforgettable.
I am an incoming freshman at San Diego Mesa College, and I was so scared about going into the great unknown after high school. But after speaking to some counselors and some of the wonderful students I was more confident in applying to colleges and my future. With the great people and awesome classes, I cant wait to attend next semester!
