I honestly really like MPC. Since this is my third year ever attending college, I feel like it is like a second home where I can feel comfortable. There are are lots of resources available if needed. If I am struggling with either Math or English there are learning centers or study rooms available. Also the teachers are always enthusiastic and are always available. The counselors are helpful and make you feel like close friends.
This would have to be one of the best community colleges out there. Teachers have always replied with in 10 hours from when I sent the email. They are always helpful as well. I have taken online classes and they were very easy on how they work, the online classes are very easy to complete with stil some challenge so you could learn. There are many different area you can lounge, relax or do homework. Either outside or indoor and all with lots of space. Food is easy accessible, but not cheap. Has large amount of classes so you have many choices to make your schedule, either pack it all into one day or spread out through the week. Plus you have many different classes that they do not offer in other surrounding colleges. It is worth my one hour drive to MPC than to the 10 minute drive to the college by my house
I loved the campus and the overall area however the libraries hours are over around 7PM and they are not opened at all on weekends which is not helpful when you need to cram for exams. Parking is also usually an issue i always give myself about 15-30 minutes to look for parking because it fills up extremely fast!
Overall Monterey Peninsula College is a good place to start. If you're looking for a good junior college to try out different classes until you find something that you're truly interested in, the MPC is a great place to start. The teachers are very helpful and easily accessible at most times of the day. They are personable and easy to talk to.

Keep up on your studies, and know exactly what final degree you wnat to get. If you want to go to grad school, look into the requirements for certain schools then pick the undergrad school that will prepare you the most for it with out having to do alot more extra work.
The teachers at Monterey Peninsula College are phenomenal, especially for community college instructors. Several have a Ph.D. in their field, they come from different places and have different experiences to offer, and I have always felt that my teachers are genuinely interested in my academic and personal success. The small class sizes are a major contributing factor to the effectiveness of MPC's instructors. I've also noticed that the faculty at MPC communicate and collaborate in order to provide a complete, balanced learning environment. I am supremely grateful to have been taught by such qualified individuals.
My classmates are among the friendliest people i have ever met, dont mind helping others out and explaining things when one does not understand.
someone that isn't big into partying and very big in to getting there degree. I actually go to CSU Monterey Bay, but they didn't have that as a choice, soI picked the closest thing.
Its almost always about being two minuets from the ocean.
California State University of Monterey Bay is a new growing campus that is beautiful and unlike any other because of where it is located and the friendly diverse staff that encourages and supports the expanse of knowledge about the environment and the world that every student is going to ace after college.
The size might be a good thing, but it is also its weakness. Small schools do not allow students to reach their full potential. When I think of a college I think of pathways to the future. Students need to see what is out there waiting for them. They need to see their passion and where it will take them. This school lacks the material. The material that could give a student the very meaning of seeking a career.
The admissions office has lost a number of files that I and some of my friends have sent in before and have made it very challenging for me at times to have all the documents I needed in on time.
Monterey Penninsula College is best known for its programs in liberal arts and for its friendly atmosphere.
One, how cold it is here. Two how far away from everything it is. Three the school doesn't prepare you for grad school. Four there isn't a whole lot to do here besides going to a cold windy beach.
In my opinion, the people that shouldnt attend this school are the really career focused people because since High School they knew what they wanted and got really good grades so they should attend a 4-year university. Theres nothing wrong with attending a 2-year college after High School but they were focused and those people knew specifically what career they wanted to achieve.
