What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am from South Carolina and never thought I would be in California- ever. My mom suggested that I go for the experience and I don't regret it for a minute. I love the people and the diversity among us. The school has great profesors that are willing to go the extra mile and I love my coaches because they put academics first, then athletics. We are being taught life lessons at Monterey Peninsula College.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am in my third year here at MPC and played sports my first two years here. The sports were pretty competitive and had a well-run program. Besides sports and class, I did not spend much time on campus. There are always things to do when you are not in class since the school is so close to the beach.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college has one of my favorite campuses. It gives me the opportunities to be both independent, and to be around people when I want. The people are very diverse and open-minded. I did not have the best outlook on the counseling department but the financial aid department is amazing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

THe campus is nice. Outside there are many views and getaways so you do to always feel like you are in school. There are a number of safety features around, so there is no need to feel unsafe. The teachers are accessible and knowledgeable. The gallery on campus is amazing. Love the way how the different artists that exhibit, got to the corresponding classroom and discuss their work and process.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Monterey Peninsula College is one of the best community colleges within the area. It has a diverse environment compared to the surrounding local community colleges. The college has a nice campus, with lots of trees and plants around. The students and teachers that attend the school vary but a majority of them are great people to interact with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Monterey Peninsula College is not only a breathtaking campus because of it's bird's eye view of the Central Coast, but because of the amazing energy from staff and students as well. From the first contact to the throwing of your graduation cap, the overwhelming support and services are there. There are plenty of clubs and extra curricular activities. Sports and acedemics are of some of the best in California. Football, track and field, swimming, basketball, and baseball are just a few of the athletic areas that are full of team spirit and pride. There are all ages represented at MPC and being the melting pot of California, has an extremely diverse and unique student roster. Safety is never an issue with 24/7 security and safe surrounding neighborhoods. There is an active law enforcement training program, an acredited nursing program, amazing theatre and inspiring arts and music programs. Being part of the Marine Sanctuary, has a great oceanography program of study too. Partnering with the Monterey Bay Aquarium, they are able to provide a unique and hands-on aquatic education. The library is new, innovative, technologically equipped, vast, available, fully staffed and super clean. There are even a large amount of resources for students to utilize. EOPS, health and menal health services, food pantry, book assistance, women' re-entry services, transfer and career center, to just name a few. Basically if a student is struggling, all they need to do is communicate it to any of the supporting staff members, and (BAM!) problem solved. So in conclusion, I am proud to be a student and would recommend the majestic and sureal campus of MPC to any person wanting to educate, express, or just find themselves to become a part of the team!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This college is beautiful; the staff and professors are amazing and the school website is even easy to use. The institution offers various classes in many departments with a variety of available times. It prepares students to transfer to four year colleges. This school taught me the skills I didn't learn in k-12 that I needed to get accepted and succeed at a four year. The staff and teachers are dedicated to helping students achieve their academic goals and to improve their critical thinking skills.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My experience at Monterey Peninsula College I would say has been extremely positive. MPC is a college located in the tranquil city of Monterey, an ocean town. There are all kinds of recreational activities you can do in the area, which includes taking a sailing class at MPC. You can even glimpse the sea from the second flood of the library and hear the sea lions echoing on the peer from the campus. The scenery is great, full of pine trees and native wildlife, such as raccoons and deer on campus, and there is even a nice ravine that runs through the campus with a couple bridges and passages to get across. In the end, I have met so many nice people and had such a great experience at MPC. I have made some good memories at this school that I will carry with me for the rest of my life, which is something that my online school will probably not be able to provide me with to the same degree – the campus experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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
