MSJC is like that oft-ignored, dusty little book at the bottom of the bookshelf. Its Menifee campus, which sits adjacent to a dirt field, is so small that it can be walked across in a matter of minutes. And to match, it has classrooms that would feel more at home on a high school campus. But picking this little book up and flipping through a couple of its pages reveals that its lackluster exterior belies the quality of its contents. Consider the small classrooms: though visually unimpressive, they should be a welcome sight for anyone looking for quality education since they limit the college’s professor-to-student ratio to one where each student can receive adequate attention from their professors. And, as it happens, MSJC's professors are top-notch; during my two years at the college, I had amazing professors for a variety of subjects, from English and body-conditioning to psychology and anatomy-and-physiology. What most of them shared, in addition to being great instructors in the technical sense, was a genuine passion for the subject they taught. And this passion often rubbed off on me and inspired me to continue working hard towards realizing my dreams and passions. And what’s more, like the perfect conclusion to an amazing book, many of them were genuinely interested in the future success of their students. For example, I had a professor who would devote some time every week to highlight opportunities that he thought would help his students succeed in transferring to four-year universities despite those opportunities often having absolutely nothing to do with his class. So yes, it is true that MSJC does not have a large, fancy-looking campus with great dining options and exciting campus life. But we should all know this by now— never judge a book by its cover.

It is a great starter college and very affordable. Financial aid is available and for me personally it completely paid for all of my classes. There are lots of clubs on campus for you to meet new people. Tutoring, library services, and even mental health counseling are available.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back and talk to myself as a high school student, what a blessing it would be! Truth be told, I did poorly in high school, but now I am attending college which I saw as a new beginning. Now that I know it is important to keep the grades up; now that I know it is wise to discipline yourself in doing your homework and studying; now that I know all these things I would encourage myself more on doing those things. I would let myself know the great things you will experiences with a great high school GPA. I would let myself know that you must study the syllabus, no matter how unimportant you believe it is. I would warn myself not to get attached to becoming a "class clown" because that will not work in the college life. Many things I would advise myself of but the thing that is most important is advising me that though college could be stressing at points, the friends & staff you meet are such a blessing. When you're stressed, when you are going under pressure with mid-terms, you will always have someone there to encourage you.

  5. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    When I talk about my school, I brag about how it saves me lots of money by going to a community college for my freshman year of school. Only paying five thousand dollars per year as opposed to twenty or thirty thousand dollars really makes a difference financially. I'm also happy with the community college I'm going to because the campus has a brand new library and learning center. It's nestled in the city of Menifee, and easy to get to for students from Temecula, Murrieta, or Lake Elsinore.

  6. What's unique about your campus?

    The best thing about MSJC for me is the variety of classes available and the accesibility. I have a complicated schedule as it is and being able to have a wide selection of times to be able to choose my classes definately helps. I have to combine four schedules on a daily basis. My schedule, both of my children's school schedules, and my husband's schedule, which includes both his jobs. MSJC has given me an opportunity more than anything to be able to get a college education even with my crazy schedule.

  13. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    As a non-traditional student there were things that I choose MSJC. First, the onsite child development center. I have two children that are under the age of six. Being able to be near my children was very important to me considering all the time I am going to sacrifice for my education. Secondly, I chose MSJC because of the honors program. This is one way I am able to distinguish myself from my peers and, in the future, from the other applicants that I will be compared to when I apply for transfer to a 4-year institution.
