Unless you fit into a specific clique (IEQuite BrightArt & Design Department
Unless you fit into a specific clique (IE Someone with a laptop, someone who plays Pokemon or another trading card game or the smokers), do not expect students to be very welcoming. The student community is aloof at best and at worst, outright exclusionary. People are far too focused on themselves and how their peers perceive them. Students go to this school for only one of two reasons - as a stepping stone to a 4-year, or to just leech off the system and attend classes solely for financial aid. No one is really all that interested in being social. The math instructors at this school are, for the most part, some of the worst faculty in the school. I have been told by more than one instructor that if we students could go elsewhere and learn math at another school, we'd be better off - I tend to believe this. Most (not all) of the faculty in my experience has been lazy and only attempt doing half their job, while expecting greatness from their students. One instructor has been so bold as to refer to one of his former students as a "punk" and later this semester, told students who need rides to field trips that if they didn't have cars, that they *would* pay for all gas. This is a community college - who here has $300 for gas to go down to southern California? Most students don't - if they did, they'd have cars. It just seems to me like much of the faculty aims to hinder students any way they can. If you can go to another community college, please - avoid this school and especially this city like the plague.

I am a nursing student at another school.AverageNursing
I am a nursing student at another school. After one semester at this school, I decided not to apply to their nursing school. Be forewarned; they offer NO STUDENT LOANS. Also, the administrative staff is ALL STUDENTS. They are rude, unhelpful, and often lack even basic vocabulary skills. If you want a transcript, you are forced to either go through a ten week process (and be talked down to by the staff) or pay $10 for an electronic data-mining service to get it. WORST SCHOOL POSSIBLE.

The school provides a very valuable service toQuite BrightPhilosophy
The school provides a very valuable service to the Modesto area's low-income students, but in the last few years quality of education as well as the surrounding city and environment have been in steady decline. I live just across the street from the campus and have heard gunshots and cars speeding away many times in the two years since I've lived here. MJC is not a good place to be at, but if you choose your professors and classes wisely you can get a lot out of the experience.
