What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Diego Mesa College has been a great community college. However, it is just that, a community college. The teacher are great, they are always willing to help you and have plenty of office hours. However, the counselors do not always know what they are talking about. I would recommend doing your own research and academic planning if you want to transfer within two years. Over all, pleasant experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Diego Mesa College offers a vast variety of opportunities for their students, faculty, and staff. Since my first day here, I was welcomed with opened arms by not only professors, but strangers. We have a huge campus for being a community college but we have the most enrolled students at a community college in San Diego. Our campus is ranked #1 overall community college in San Diego because of our dedicated professors, clean and safe environments, thriving facilities, and hard working students. I am involved in multiple clubs at my school and enjoy taking advantage of the volunteer opportunities our campus offers. We are a smoke free campus and offer free tutoring so that there is no chance for sickness or failure at San Diego Mesa college. Overall, Though I was not too excited about going to a community college straight out of high school, I am thankful I got the privilege to receive an associates degree, make life-time friends, and learn through academic experience from an excellent school such as San Diego Mesa college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Diego Mesa College is the best community college that i have attended. Being a veteran, the resource center has plenty of events, gatherings, fund-raisers and volunteer opportunities. The Veteran Resource Center also has tutors regularly for multiple courses that you may be enrolled in. Do you want to touch up on some math or English? They will sit down with you and tutor you, regardless on the classes you are taking. The campus has four levels in the library center. Each level has something different for your needs in college. Sometimes professors will reserve books on the first floor for students to borrow textbooks for classes. This helps students who can't afford or don't wish to purchase textbooks in the semester. There are study rooms that you can rent out for free, as long as they are available. As usual, there is a level for both non-fiction and fiction books to borrow from the library. The library has printing and tutoring services on the third and forth floor. There are also classes in the library. Getting out of the library, there are three different Starbucks locations on campus. This is due to the massive size of the campus. This helps so much for each student due to the location of their classes. The professors are extremely helpful when it comes to courses and homework relating to. Parking in San Diego, CA is always a hassle, but if you arrive early enough or during lunch hours, you can find parking relatively easy and close to your classes. I love this campus. This is the third campus that I have attended in the SDCCD (San Diego City Community District) school system. Mesa campus has the largest parking areas and campus out of all three sites. This campus has the best community, too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Diego Mesa College is a community college, therefore it does not offer many of the services, such as housing, that a standard four year university offers. Class size is fairly small, considering that standard four year universities typically have over 200 students in lectures, it is hard to find a class that has more than 50 students. While the professors seem to be passionate about their work, it is hard to be completely passionate in an environment in which most students don't seem passionate. When speaking to other students one can see the hopes and aspirations they carry but it is hard to find many students that act upon their hopes and strive to fight for their careers. Therefore, although it is a great institution with a safe and friendly environment, I would recommend this school for economic or building character reasons but would not recommend for someone who is completely motivated on completing a certain major.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mesa is a great commuter college. I've loved it here over the two years I have been here. It has a great layout, easy to get around and find buildings. Professors are awesome and helpful. It's easy to make friends in class which to me, is important at a commuter school since we miss out on rooming/greek life. The only downside to Mesa is the parking. It can take quite a while to find a spot if you don't start first thing in the morning and it even causes some students to be late quite. Other than that Mesa as a whole is a great school. Plenty of places to study and beautiful campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mesa college is a campus on the up and up. They have done a lot of recent renovations and construction of new buildings. As a student who has seen the campus change over the few years I've attended it's amazing to see the campus future students will be able to enjoy. A new gym, new labs, and new common area all will lead to an overall better community college experience that will feel like a university, easing the transition for a lot of students who plan to transfer. Classes are great, teachers always make time for students, as they are their to TEACH, and not just there for research and studies. The only thing could do better on is student outreach and getting more students involved in the day to day campus activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion about San Diego Mesa College is that it's a great community college. There's always an opportunity for everything no matter what you're majoring in. So far, I haven't had any trouble with my classes, transportation, professors, etc. The college isn't perfect of course, in my opinion I know the counseling system can be way better. I've had some minor problems in the past with certain counselors, but I'm sure for others it's something they can just brush off their shoulders. Overall, San Diego Mesa College is a great school and has helped me choose which career I want to go far within the first few months.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this campus honestly My friend takes late classes and sometime doesnt get out of class till 10pm they have emergency buttons and also police constantly patrolling making sure you are always safe. The campus has reasonable sized classes as well and there is many nearby cheap places to grab a bite to eat at lunch time. The staff is friendly and helpful I think for a community college it is by far the best one.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school and has different kind or resources that us students benefit from if we are struggling. Counselors and professors are always able when a student needs help. I would not have chosen another school. Mesa was my first choice and I am glad it was.
