I have been going to MiraCosta since I was a freshman in high school, my first time going to the campus and meeting the staff and professors felt so warm and welcoming. I never felt judged and felt how strong the community at MiraCosta really is. I have yet to come across a professor who does not enjoy teaching. MiraCosta provides the tools needed in order for you to strive whether it is going to the STEM learning center in order to get more help or even providing feedback on a paper you need at the writing center. Overall if I had to describe MiraCosta I would say it is a safe and loving family.
Overall, I think this is a great college to go to. I loved almost all my professors, but one thing for sure, they were almost always available or very easy to get in touch with. Lots of flexibility and very encouraging too! Classes arent huge-around 20-27 max. I am very glad to have come here to figure out what I field I really want to go into.
People there are very supportive and kind friendly so I always get helped by them. As an international student, there are some problems and misunderstandings at school and living in the US. But they tell us what we must do as non-resident such as paperwork, Visa work, and how we can comfortable stay at this school. I do not know if other college do this but they teach us important things and I am really glad I chose here.
I think MiraCosta is a good starter school for those who don't know what their major is going to be, as well as a great school for those going back into the school system. The people who attend MCC are really friendly. Also, the teachers are extremely helpful, in and out of the classroom.

Growing up in the home that I did, with the constant burden of finances, college seemed like a dream that would never come true. With mediocre grades and no true path to follow for school, my senior year was practically hopeless. I knew I could never afford to attend a university. So for my senior year I strove for nothing. Following graduation as I made plans to head to China to work with orphans, the daunting task of registration for a junior college overwhelmed me. I knew I needed to do something. So I registered with Mira Costa. It has changed me, it truly has. Attending Mira Costa has changed my entire outlook on life. My once empty aspirations are now filled with hope. There is a light at the end of this tunnel. I am so close to achieving my goal and I will be the first from my family to graduate from college. If I were to go back and give advice to myself as a senior I would tell myself that there is hope and I need to strive and seek after it. To never give up cause the best things in life are worth fighting for.
The one thing wrong with my school is that it is small. It doesn't offer many classes other than the basics you need for your general education. There are no zoology courses, but there are many general sciences such as biology, chemistry, anatomy..etc.
One who is commited to transfering and desires a well rounded education. One that desires to attend a four year university.
I would recommend this school to every kind of person. With its extensive lawns of green grass, more introverted students have plenty of space to relax independently, away from noise and crowds. MiraCosta satisfies people seeking social opportunities with all of its efforts to involve the student body and bring people together. The library houses numerous computers and study spaces for all students to focus on school work, and tutors and writing consultants are available for anyone.
If I were to brag about my school, I would first of all tell someone that the professors are awesome. They genuinely still seem like they love their jobs and truly want the students to learn. The campus is also very quiet and clean. It offers a friendly, comfortable, small town feel. I think this is very important, because campuses can be overwhelming. This school also seems to have some decent funding, because there are numerous resources for students that are extremely helpful. Finally, they have a fairly wide range of classes and times which helps for working students.
My classmates are heartwarming and welcoming; there are no judgemnts or bias becuase the school as a whole is so diverse.
I wish I would have known about scholarships and financial aid and how difficult paying for school would be.
It is a school that has three campuses, and it is known to be a commuter school. It is very efficient in helping students by offering free tutoring, workshops dealing with various issues, service learning volunteering, interships and jobs through the career center, and transfer information through the transfer center. Every other thurdsay, the school offers a college hour for its students that has free food and a live band. The teachers and administrators are always very helpful, and always offer support to its students.
The constant interaction with students of all ages and backgrounds is one of the reasons I truly enjoy community college. The fact that I attend a community college means that it is more diverse in the aspect of age. I am also able to meet people that live in the same area that I grew up in. It is also convenient with my work schedule and my other everyday activities because it offers such broad times for classes and is so close to home.
Miracosta College is best known for it's quality education at a low cost.
Mira Costa College is a great school. The teachers there have a lot of teaching experience and some have taught at Universities as well. The campus is very clean and modern. They have a great library with plenty computers and printers, along with staff to assist you and answer any questions you may have about the center. MCC also has many tutoring centers and learning centers that the instructors strongly encourage students to attend. The instuctors are very helpful and really want their students to succeed. You can tell they are caring and are really there to help their students.
It is a commuter school, so finding school spirit from the students is more challenging. I wish there were more students on campus throughout the day as well, as opposed to most students coming on campus in the morning through noon. Most students have an off campus job, so they cannot stay on campus as long as others. This limits the time some students can have socializing with other students, but it is convenient in the fact that the school offers many classes on each campus throughout the week so that students can attend their jobs.
