MiraCosta is an outstanding community college. I have been attending since the fall of 2013 and have been completely satisfied with the school. The counselors are always willing to help as well as insightful to any question presented to them. And I have always been happy with the quality of professors i have. I am very happy I chose MiraCosta as my school.

I chose the "It's great" option because the school really is great. Every class that I have take has had an instructor passionate about the material they teach. I don't ever feel that I am uncomfortable in a class because of the lack of motivation. I believe this is what makes Mira Costa College unique. The reason I didn't choose, "It's the best" was because of the lack of student involvement the school puts on. I know college is not all about school spirit, but sometimes it is nice to see that and participate in that. That is why I am working hard to achieve all my needed credits, so I can transfer to a university as soon as possible.
