4 College Senior

Academic Experience: As far as my experience has been at Mira Costa, I could say that for every one bad professor there is, there are four good ones. I can really say that there have been incredibly frustrating and hard to work with professors, but there are wonderfully adaptable and compassionate teachers on this campus as well that cancel out those bad apples.

As for the process of registering, enrolling, and attending classes, it all goes pretty smoothly after becoming accustomed to how Mira Costa's system works. Just keep note of registration and enrollment dates and you should not have any problems with the process. What I have noticed with workload at this campus is that it is more than other schools I have gone to, but I personally feel that it pushes me to do better with my classes, and it does become a trickle effect and influences students there to form study groups and go to tutoring sessions. It is a wonderful school and they do genuinely care about their students' education and financial needs.

Academic Experience: I might not have been utilizing the correct resources because even though I am in the process of finishing my Associates Degree, I have not been able to successfully locate any internships or job opportunities through Mira Costa. I have found internships outside of school, but I do wish I could have successfully found a job though this campus because it is difficult already trying to find any stable or available job opportunities.
