I liked its accessibility and flexibility as they offer online classes.
Since the majority of classes are online, it’s hard to meet new people and make connections as we aren’t fully on-campus.
Miracosta allows for a broad range of interests, in which a diverse environment can be curated. I’ve enjoyed not only the people that attend (my peers) but also the professors who seem to really have a passion for their subject and in turn, are supportive and enthusiastic to teach.
It’s been a bit difficult, as it is for most campuses, to have a distant education. I think it’s primitive to induce a collaborative in-person exchange between that the student and the teacher in order for the most benefit to arise out of education.
All the teachers really care about the success of the student and want to connect with you individually to help you, not only pass the class but succeed beyond the classroom.
Because of COVID-19 restrictions, many classes are still online.
It is a great way to save money and transfer to a UC school!
It is hard to get in contact with transfer counselors.
MiraCosta has various subjects to learn and pursue in your academic career. Professors are very knowledgable and personable - I've never feared that my professors wouldn't understand my work, ideals, or difficult situations. Additionally changing majors is no big deal if you decide your current option is not the direction you're interested in pursuing. Socially, there are so many different kinds of people that attend this school that you will get along with and develop great friendships. The school itself has been very understanding of social issues experienced within the school and nationally which shows they care about their students. Overall, an A+ school can help in jump-starting your academic career or continuing into a new field.
Parking is fairly limited and has only become more of an issue as the school has grown in popularity - less so when COVID was rampant for obvious reasons. Definitely plan 30-45 minutes to search for parking - even in overflow lots! Desired classes can become quite limited but I assume this is because this campus is not the largest.
