WHAT I LIKED

Being from Merced, I enjoyed having a little bit more time after high school to figure things out and be able to choose my major with more information. I liked that I could save a some money on tuition rather than having to pay a lot for tuition right off the bat.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Besides in class, there is not a whole lot of social life.

3.0

WHAT I LIKED

To be honest attending Merced College and my education experience are quite well. I enjoy how the campus offers to tutor the students that have difficulty with their classes and professors having office hours.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Something I didn’t like about Merced College is not being able to take a class because it’s not available or they’re not teaching it.

WHAT I LIKED

Merced College has so many resources available it's almost hard to go bad! It's easy to set up appointments and there's almost always availability. The staff is so kind I appreciate them so much.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There wasn't much I disliked except for the food on the Los Banos campus is not good/some of it is expired.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

I like how they are always trying to find something for their students to do, they are always trying to get the students together for pizza or movie night. My teacher was very attentive to my online class.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

More options on class schedules for people who work.
