What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have enjoyed it here! Compared to a four-year university I went to for one year I prefer this much more! I have met some amazing people and all of my professors have been super helpful and understanding! All of the classes I have taken so far have less than 35 students. This has been great because you receive more help and attention from your professors. It is also nice because professors will often do group activities so then you can make friends in your classes. I feel that from the professors I've had so far, their grading techniques and curriculum has been fair and that if you work hard you will receive the grade you want. I recommend this school to anyone who is looking for an enjoyable community college!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

MiraCosta is an overall decent junior college. The teachers that I have worked with cared enough to help students learn and grow outside of class but not too much to the point of coddling making it easier to transition to a University or Cal state school compared to going in fresh out of high school. The are a lot of different clubs and communities to join which it nice and they are always looking for others to join. Also the library services are amazing with there writing center to help you with your essays and other writing needs to their stem center that will help you with any stem class that you may need help with. I would defiantly recommend this college to someone especially if they don't know their major since there are lot of classes to adventure with people willing to help you to learn without costing an arm and a leg.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that MiraCosta is very mellow; I really like the atmosphere of MiraCosta and the friendliness of faculty. It is very diverse and they are very accepting of others. I love the various extracurricular activities and groups that MiraCosta endorses. MeCHA is great and the LGBTQ+ clubs and groups are very friendly and welcoming.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of the Miracosta community college is a pleasant experience. The facilities allow you to be more independent and learn more about yourself. They have workshop to help students become more successful as students and prepare them to transfer to a four-year institute. The interaction between student and faculty is excellent because the first day of class when you read the syllabus, they give you their office hours. The professors want you to come during their office hours so they can help you do better in class. In my communication class, I had a fear of talking in front of people. I told the professor about my anxiety, and he helped me find ways to lower my stress and techniques that would calm me down before I speak. The school also wants you to be interactive and create a social environment, so they send emails of events that are going to occur that week. Giving students a chance to enjoy themselves and make connections. Miracosta has different clubs for everyone to join, and with permission from the council, you can create the club of your choice. The best part of the college is that it's a small campus and everything is close. It's easy to figure out where your classes are and if you have more than one class, you can easily make it to your next class. If I could rate my experience at Miracosta, I would give it a four and a half out of five. I would recommend people to go to this college it would be a great experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I genuinely enjoy attending this school, but I do wish some things could be changed. I appreciate that the counselors are easily accessible, but I have gone to two different counselors who told me different classes to take for my major. I understand that there are many majors as well as many students, but I wish they give us a counselor who has knowledge in our major instead of one that is available at the moment. It would be more beneficial for the student as well as the counselor so they get to understand the student and gear them towards the right path.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

MiraCosta College has been a great experience for me. I was originally frightened by the idea of moving on from high school to college. I didn't know how the campus culture would be like and how I would do with a higher level of classes. Currently, I'm in my fourth and final semester at MiraCosta, and am transferring to CSUSM in the fall. I wouldn't be at the point I am at today without MiraCosta. The teachers on this campus are very receptive and approachable which immensely helps. Class sizes tend to be smaller which really helps the learning experience. Students on campus are always helpful and kind. My favorite resource that MiraCosta has is their Counseling Center. I've had many appointments with them and they have greatly helped me in making my education plan and helping me succeed with transferring within four semesters. I have had a wonderful two years on this campus and would recommend MiraCosta College to anyone in a heartbeat.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

MiraCosta College student support team has exceeded my expectation. The counselors are always available for meetings to discuss your progress to ensuring courses are open for the students to enroll to meet their goal to transfer or graduate on time. It was an enjoyable and rewarding experience here. I would recommend this college for anyone beginning their college journey as they will have you prepared to excel at the next level.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've grown a lot as a person while I've attended MCC. There's a big variety of people, diversity, and the teachers and staff are constantly evolving with the acceptance culture, safe space, and Umoja, Our compus is very inclusive, We always have access to our professors and even the financial aid attendants are super helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

MiraCosta is a great place to start your academic career! If you have just graduated high school or haven't been to school in over 10 years, you will be successful here. This school gave me some powerful knowledge and has fantastic instructors who want you to do well and reach your goals. The campus is beautiful but the parking isn't great. There is an assault on campus at least twice a year so I wish there were more campus police. The library is my favorite place to go and is a great study environment, especially upstairs. I have met some good friends and learned a lot about myself. I highly recommend this school to anyone wanting to transfer to a 4 year or obtain a child development certificate. I do not recommend MiraCosta to anyone wanting a trade program, as I would argue the courses are few and lacking. Overall MCC is a great school!
