Beatrice - 04/09/2024

It's a great school. It's a very remote location so we didn't have a lot of the services that bigger schools have nearby but it's a beautiful area. The staff were very helpful and went the extra mile to make sure that I succeeded and had the support I needed.

Very good school. I've been able to do a lot of classes online. The professors are available and promptly answer my questions. If for whatever reason I'm not understanding a particular question, I find that extra time is given to me to overcome my current struggle. I have yet to meet an unkind instructor and truly enjoy learning here.

They are always available and truly care about student success. There are a lot of programs to help students be successful.

  6. What's unique about your campus?

    Despite how complicated college in general can be, and how lost a new student can feel, Mendocino makes it very simple. Maybe that's because it's a community college rather than an Ivy League university, but it's a relief when you can just go in and sign up for a class, and even the larger classes have no more than 40 other students at the start of the semester.
