It's a very calm school everyone is quite respectful. Campus life is fun because the school offers a variety of clubs and plays they always have some kind of play in motion that people can go and watch. They also offer great health services that are offered on both campuses.
Modesto Junior College is a great place to start your higher education! It is affordable, close to home, and has great professors! There are so many opportunities for students to shine on campus and in the community as well. Modesto Junior College provides lots of goods and services to their students in order to ensure that everyone is successful. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at this school and would recommend it to everyone who is looking to start out at a community college.
It is a great place to attend on your way to university. It provides a lot of affordable opportunities for those who can't afford ivy league schools. You can even get a vocational degree if you're not into academics. Overall, I would say that MJC is a wonderful place to go with many professors who genuinely care about the success of their students.
*I did not have a major while studying at MJC, so I chose to list myself as a visitor.*
Overall, Modesto Junior College is a pretty nice place. Of course, I only took a total of eight classes over a period of three semesters there during my high school years, but the campuses (there are two, West and East) were rather pretty, in a spread-out, rambling way.
There is not a ton of lighting at night, at least on the East campus, so that was a bit scary for a 15 year old girl (me) who was waiting for her parents to pick her up. The West campus was my favorite, and not only because it was 20 minutes closer to my home. I can't speak for the lighting situation on West, since I never took an evening class at that campus. However, the West campus is bordered on two sides by the beginning of Modesto's westside farming community, known as Wood Colony, and is within walking distance of several fast food restaurants, as well as a few relaxed, yet nicer, establishments. East Campus, on the other hand, is surrounded by Modesto's neighborhoods. I can't attest to distance of food, since, as I mentioned before, I was 15 when I took classes there, and so was picked up/dropped off between classes.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Modesto Junior College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself to prepare to enter the greatest competition I have ever participated in. College is just the beginning of a brutal competion called life. College is the vessel, the instrument that prepares you for life and the career and social networks that will support you throughout the rest of your life. To view college as a party experience or a chance to get away from home is the wrong approach. In college, you should be selfish and studious, always learning and challenging your knowledge. Graduation is only the beginning. In these times of harsh economies, it is truly an employers market and knowledge in your chosen field is not enough. You have to be able to stand apart from the millions of other graduates, have some piece of knowledge or an outstanding personality that sets you apart from the individual who has been in your industry for years, but is willing to settle for an entry level position so that he can feed his family. The college experience is a lesson, a life learning event, that will affect the rest of your life more than other single event. Fight for victory, fight to win, fight for knowledge.
My classmates are charismatic. Some are very eager to learn, others are not.
I wish I knew where everything was before i came to this campus but, as school goes on you eventually figure it out by yourself.
MJC is a great campus to go to before putting yourself into a university.
It's really not easy to get involved in a junior college. I have to say its one of the hardest things that you can face. Your in a transition from a four year high school to going to a university. Your just inbetween and it doesn't seem as fun as it use to be. You face a challenge of having to try to find that time to do social activities and it just doesn't work. I came from a high school where i use to play sports all four years and now its nothing.
Anyone can attend it dose not matter race religious backround or age there are many different people attending MJC
What's really unique about this school is its intimacy. Rather than having a lot of large classes of over 100 people, many of the classes have only 30 or 40 students, making it easier to make personal relationships with the teachers, as well as making it easier for them to help you if you have any problems.
I chose MJC because it is close to where I live and allows me the opportunity to live at home while working full-time and furthering my education. I enjoy the small campus atmosphere, making it easier to meet fellow students and staff. My goal is to attend MJC for approximately two years and then transfer to a four year college.
Modesto Junior College is very close to home. You can save money by attending the community college for two years, then later transferring out to a state or university college. Books and tuition is cheap, and there are so many great opportunities on campus. Especially if you are undecided on your major, MJC will help you get your prerequisities out of the way. Classes are offered all year long and are easy to get into. Because of the small school size, student-teacher interaction is very close. Overall, Modesto Junior College is the way to go.
Our school is best known for our challenging math and science departments.
There isn't any type of person who shouldn't attend this school. Community college is perfect for anyone looking for an affordable education. It's great for older students, young students, or anyone who has to balance life, work, and school. However, International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement graduates will find this school quite a walk in the park.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the lack of parking at the start of the semester. At times a person can spend up to half an hour looking for a parking space! By rule of thumb i try to arrive at least a half an hour earlier to class during the first few weeks of class just in case.
it depends on how old your teacher is. the younger teachers are obviously more energetic and actually want you to learn, while some of the much older instructors just stick to what they know and arent willing to openness.

i love mjc! the people i've met are so open and honest about who they are and what they want to be, i love going to school now more than ever. the teachers are great too!
there is a stereotype of community college kids, they werent smart enough to go to a four year or too lazy youll be stuck there forever, but its completely untrue
