4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: By far, I have not experienced any difficulties getting to classes or scheduling appointments. I have not been in many or have not used many opportunities the school has because of lack of my time or interest. Also, the advantages given to us, I have not taken advantage of, which I should. Mt. SAC is a great school, opening doors for many who attend. Since it has been my first year here, I have not given myself the time to explore the opportunities given due to trying to adjust to personal problems. Although I do hope that in the future I will give myself the time to try new things given on campus.

Campus Resources: The library is my favorite place to go study or do homework in between classes. There are many tables and computers that can be used as well as separate study rooms for group studying. I enjoy all of the plugins for my computer and also the Wi-Fi that is accessible in each class and building.

Academic Experience: The academics offered at my school are excellent. Each professor seems passionate about the class they are teaching and they are dedicated to helping their students. The professors I have had do excellent work in their lectures and have always helped answer any of my questions to their fullest ability. In my paralegal course, after I would get an assignment returned to me I would ask my professor questions about what I could do better on another similar assignment or a brief because I will be writing numerous briefs in my profession. I definitely love my college and would not want to go anywhere else to receive my associates degree.

Academic Experience: In the paralegal program at Mt. SAC, each of the professors have either been a lawyer, paralegal, or even a judge. Each of them have a large amount of experience in the law field and are very good at making us think as if we already are a paralegal. In my intro to paralegal course, the class was given numerous assignments that involve many duties that paralegals will have to do such as writing briefs, memos, research laws, use not only online resources but resources in the library. We also had many guest speakers from campus services, colleges that offer legal studies, and people who currently are paralegals. The paralegal program has great classes and professors that help us as much as they possibly can and encourage us to strive for our paralegal degree.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I believe that the tuition is relatively low, but it does add up fast when having a full load of class units. I applied for financial aid but did not receive it due to my stepfathers income, but I am working a part time job as well as going to school so I save as much money as I can up for school with some assistance from my parents. I also found that it is much cheaper to rent books for general education classes, but for the books that are related to my major I look online for the cheapest place to purchase my book and look in the school bookstore so I can keep my textbook for reference later in life.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: One of the unique features at my school is that there are many different buildings to explore and each of the buildings have a relaxing space to study or just relax in between classes. In the library there are study rooms that can be reserved for as long as you need to use them and there is also numerous computers that can be used to print documents or assignments without having to wait in a long line. One feature that I really like is that in the library there are updated versions of law books that I can use to complete my paralegal assignments on campus instead of going to a law library, and they also have a subscription of Westlaw that is free for students to access and use.

Career Services: I have not yet graduated, but I have had a representative from the career center come and do a presentation in my paralegal class. The representative was very nice and very informative on how we can use their services after we graduate. I know that after I graduate or when I get ready to graduate I will use their services as a current student or alumni.

Facilities: I enjoy walking around campus and seeing multiple students with smiles on their faces. I like going into the planetarium and the science walkthrough on campus when I have time between classes. When I have to study I really enjoy going to the library and finding a quiet table to help me study. In the student center there are ping pong tables and television that I see a lot of students watching or playing with their friends in between classes. On campus there are a lot of different things to do between classes and many students to converse with.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: At my school the faculty is very nice and it is really easy to schedule the classes that I need because they offer multiple classes and times for each course. One frustration I have had is not being applicable for financial aid because I am still living with my parents and they can still claim me on their taxes.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I have taken four online classes because I live one and a half hours away from my school. I personally enjoy taking classes on campus because I like having face to face interactions with my fellow classmates. I also like being in class to hear the professor lecture and get more information about the assignments. I noticed that in only two of the four courses I took online the professors responded within twenty-four hours while the other professors were slow at responding to emails which made my assignments more difficult due to not getting more information about the assignments. I prefer classes on campus over online courses now because I have noticed that I learn more and have higher grades in classes on campus.

4 College Junior

Student Body: There is a large diversity of students and a various amount of clubs. Every student in my classes are very friendly and each have different opinions on each topic we cover in class. I always notice students socializing out of class and I have noticed various clubs promoting themselves on campus. I tend to be a shy person at the start of each semester but within the first week of class I feel like I have known my fellow classmates and can be myself without getting judged.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: I use all the resources I can and most of the individuals that work for the college I attend are helpful and really try to understand my questions and give me the most helpful information.

College Senior

Career Services: I have not looked into the career center, alumni network, or job prospects.

College Senior

Facilities: I have not gone to any other college campuses so I do not have anything to compare the college I attend.

Online Courses: I took about two online courses. I took a nutrition course and a sociology course. They were both very interesting. I learned a lot of new things in both courses and it was a good experience. I did well in the courses. In a traditional classroom students could just ask the professor a question when needed; in an online course students would email the professor and the professors I had would answer pretty quickly, within a day or two. The work load seemed to be fair, like all classes (online or in a classroom) there was quizzes, homework, and tests. The workload seemed the same as a classroom workload. The registration process was simply. When registering for a class, I added the class and the class pooped into my moodleroom account that is in my colleges database. The only thing that was difficult was to making relationships with the students. becasue the students were not in arms reach its harder to make relationships to people you do not see.

Overall Experience: The school is great because they prepare students well in transitioning to a four-year university. The curriculum adheres to UC requirements. Teacher evaluation is given at the end of each semester. Many resources and programs are available to students. The school also offers different types of certificates! The only weak point about the school is the huge population of students and the difficulties of finding parking spaces.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Professors are very professional and responsible. They also want students to learn as much as possible. The workload is acceptable but because this community college consist of a huge population of students who want to transfer, courses offer here are quite difficult.

Academic Experience: Mt Sac offers A.A degree in my major; however I plan to transfer. I am majoring in mathematics. Mt Sac offers great opportunities for students majoring in mathematics. They have a math tutoring center where students can seek help or tutor other fellow students.

Campus Resources: Resources on the campus are great as a community college. Things are very organized and easy to find.

Career Services: Mt. Sac will hold career fairs and has a career center. They offer opportunities to students who are seeking jobs. The system is very organized and easy to use.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: The student body is diverse.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Mt Sac offers a wide range of classes. The class catalog also indicates what classes are CSU transferable or UC transferable. So far, the only frustration that I have with the experience is that the difficulties of getting classes I need. Mt Sac is receiving more students than ever. The high volume of students create competition in registering classes.

It would be better if the college can afford to open more classes.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: There are not many differences in online courses. There is a platform where students and professors can interact with each other, and students can actually contact each other. However, students lack the momentum to communicate with others when they are not required to. The workload is comparatively a little bit more than usual.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Offered a lot of counseling programs and tried to prepare every students who want to transfer to a four-year university. The college also has programs like Bridge Program and ASPIRE program; they assist students with the process of their courses. Many resources are made available to students but it is also important for students to reach out for those opportunities. The college not only prepares students in transferring but also train workers with skills that they are lack of.

3 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: Have to submit documents every year. The review process is quite slow maybe due to the high volume of students. However, community colleges offered exclusive financial aid like board of governor which will cover almost all tuition for low-income and california resident students.
