Mt San Jacinto Community College District Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


The small amount of classes held, and the lack of variety in courses.


The only challenge to the campus of Mount San Jacinto is the numerous amount of students trying to enroll in the same classes that are filling up to the brim. It was truly an honor to be accepted into such a prestigious school.


The most frustrating thing about Mount San Jacinto Community College is the recent buget cuts due to the economy, I know that many colleges and universities are gong through the same thing. However, the people attending community colleges tend to be in different financial positions than those that attend universities. This past year many classes were not available or simply cut from the course list, some were cut down to one available class and many students including me were not able to take certain classes because they weren't available or they could not fit into my schedule.


The thing about MSCJ that most frustrates me is that a lot of the students there aren't serious. The instructors are amazing and they really want you to succeed, but some students just throw away everything that they are offered. It can be really frustrating to be in a class where the instructor is doing everything possible to keep the class moving and some students insist on keeping the rest of the class back. It's a transitional school and a lot of students don't know yet what it takes to be a student.


Too many working students and not enough night classes, classes become full so fast and waiting for my registration time and day, while classes become closed or waitlisted, is frustrating.


The most frustrating thing about my school is that the book buy back day is not at all the amount you spent on the book. My school has certain days where students can return there books they used for the semester but the amount we spend on the books isnt even a quarter of the money that we get back. That is very frusturating when students purchase a book for well over a 100 dollars and only get 10 dollars back.
