Jared - 09/16/2021

I like the campus, and most everyone here is friendly and helpful. I really like my instructors; they always have time for any issues I might have, and are totally invested in my learning. I play intercollegiate sports, so I am really enjoying the athletic vibe here at MVC. Looking forward to a great career here and what my future holds.

Nicholas - 02/24/2021

Mountain View College is an amazing college that I have been apart of for the last four years. I haven't had any problems, and it is truly the ideal school environment. The professors are great, and so is the staff. There are many facilities available to students such as the welding lab, math tutoring centers, computer lab, the library, etc. I really like the S building, which is a building that contains a subway, the mvc store, testing centers, and nurse's office. On top of everything, Mountain View has a beautiful campus and outdoor area. I enjoy walking in the outdoor areas of MVC because of the nature and even wildlife you can find.

Aashutosh - 06/29/2020

It's a great place for low income students who eventually want to attend a 4 year university. The faculty is really great. And the professors are more than willing to help you in need. If you are an active student you'll have a great time here.

Jimiesha - 06/05/2020

I believe that Mountain View is a good school for someone who is like me, in that they do their schoolwork, attend their classes, and carries on with their day. I was not really involved in many extracurricular activities, but they also do not have many things to participate in unless it is art driven.

  5. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    When I think of the worst thing about Mountain View College, the only thing that comes to mind is trying to find classrooms. It can get confusing at times. On the first day of school, my first class was in room 165 and my second class was in room 168. Now that sounds like it should be easy to find, but it wasn't. To the right of the class and around the corner was room 171. I'm thinking 168 would be in between those two classrooms. Oh no, room 168 was to the left of 165.

  7. What kind of person should attend this school?

    If you think that you may be overwhelmed by everything that goes on at University (living with strangers, the amoung of people on campus, the large classes etc.) then a community college is better. Also if you can't afford to go to a University right away then a community college is also a good place to go. It's literally a mini- univeristy with the exception of living on campus. You get to be at home, there aren't as many students, the classes are smaller and it's a lot cheaper.

  10. What's unique about your campus?

    The best thing about my school, other than the professors, is all of the resources that are available. The career services center is a big help, especially for students who are sure which path they should take when it comes to their future, like me. I wasn't sure if I wanted to be a forensic scientist or a pediatircian. With the help of career services, I was given a career assesment test that let me know I should be a pediatrician. The crazy thing is, I haven't thought about being one since I was a kid.
