3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Registration in general is a pain.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus itself is gorgeous year-round. They take great care of the grass/plants and it always looks great. The library is really nice for studying, tutoring, hanging out, or napping.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've had excellent professors and absolute nightmares. Ratemyprofessor.com is a MUST. For the most part, I've had fantastic professors. They offer all of the courses I'll need. The class sizes vary but I don't have a problem with the larger ones. The teachers are very hands-on in making sure you're studying etc. They constantly remind students about the reading/homework. It feels like I'm still in high school sometimes. The only major complaint is that most teachers don't allow laptops.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If Moorpark does have job/internship programs, they do not advertise or make them easily accessible. The college website is horrible and unhelpful in describing any of the services they offer.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: Moorpark is a small town. Most of the students have gone to K-12 together and don't care to meet new people. As someone who moved from out of state to attend, I found other students incredibly rude and unwelcoming. It's impossible to strike up a new conversation unless you're forced to pair up in group activities. If you aren't from the area (and don't plan on joining theatre/sports/clubs) it will be very difficult to make new friends.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's community college, everything is cheap. Getting financial aid is easy enough

2 College Freshman

Career Services: I don't know anything about it.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Moorpark has a fantastic communications department! All of the comm professors are fun and intellegent.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I've had horrible a registration process. Every semester, I get the worst registration dates. It's impossible to build a proper schedule with all of the good classes being filled so quickly. The classes have been great though.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Moorpark's a nice campus with great services/teachers but I hate the area. There is nothing to do off campus in any of the surround cities.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I've only been in there a few times and got taken care of quickly

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I think it's a great program. The professors I have had so far have been great and really explain the material

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Professors are pretty cool and really try to help and make sure you understand the material.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: It's a nice campus but some things could be fixed. Cafeteria for one needs some help

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

A sense of regret swells up inside some Moorpark students as they realize they’re now one of "them"—not an entering freshman at a four-year school like their friends, but a measly community college student. However, things soon begin to change. As two years go by, students eventually find themselves strolling off campus for the final time. With acceptance letters from UCLA and Berkeley, many Moorpark students shed their despair and, instead, are near tears as they realize what an amazing opportunity Moorpark was. This place has a certain charm. It grows on you, and it can be the catalyst for making dreams come true—if you let it.

The University of California system gives preference to California community college students in transfer admission, giving Moorpark students a relatively easy avenue to attain a world-class education. Because of this, many Moorpark students are willing to put up with lackluster classmates, a lacking social atmosphere, and the stigma attached to the school. In reality, Moorpark is nothing to be ashamed of. Rather, it is a wonderful school that offers students everything they could ever need to further themselves academically, including inspirational and personable professors, various course offerings, stress-relieving aesthetics, and a fantastic library. However, even with all of these perks, Moorpark requires individual effort and diligence; students must find the ambition within themselves in order to thrive. Otherwise, students can get sucked down into a hole that begins with dozing off during lectures and ends with DeVry. Moorpark provides you with the blocks, but you must do the building.
