I would say my experience at Mt. SAC has been incredibly positive. I think the social experience is the strongest aspect of being a student at Mt. SAC, but the academics are also very nice! I've had good experiences with almost every single professor I've taken. The faculty here is beyond supportive and will always ensure that you will succeed in the class. We also have resources such as the Equity Center to ensure that you will succeed! Mt. SAC prizes its students and all of their individual, unique contributions. It is without hesitation that I recommend Mt. SAC as a campus of choice for community college students.
The thing that instantly comes to mind is the food and the lack of options, and although this isn't a dealbreaker, it genuinely contributes to the idea that the school doesn't always care about our health.
The availability of Student Services is abundant and always ready for you, it'll definitely never feel like you're on your own for anything
The food quality could definitely be better, along with the quality of professors
I chose Mt. San Antonio College to save some money before I transfer. Most of my professors were extremely helpful and kept the class engaged during lectures, especially during my first year. I think what helped me make friends were sports classes and classes where interaction was necessary however they didn't last long. The library is a great place to get some studying done and the people there are very friendly and helpful. It is a great place to get your general ed done and then transfer.
Overall I had a good time here however there are some things to consider. The school is always under construction, there were constant fire alarms going off during my first year because of it. Their tutoring centers are pretty good but can be overwhelming at times. Choose your professors carefully, some of my professors were fantastic, others wouldn't answer questions, don't respond to emails, and play favorites. The counseling department isn't very helpful most of the time either. They also do not have dorms so if you live far you may have to commute or find an apartment. The food here is also not great and was reported to give food poisoning and have a rat problem multiple times in my 3 years here. The science department professors can be iffy so choose accordingly. Rate my professor is a great tool to use.
So many opportunities and great advisors that genuinely care about the students. I got my first internship here and the staff assisted me through workshops and resume building. 10/10
Absolutely nothing. The staff is great! Very friendly in regards to online and self-paced students, many opportunities for students to have work during the summer as well.
Online classes were easy to access, great teachers, financial aid is very helpful.
Sometimes I can find textbooks in digital versions or cheaper than in the bookstore.
Mt Sac is the perfect starting place for students. Whether you know what you want to do or not, it prepares you for the real world and helps students make the best of all its resources. Professors, there truly care about not only what they teach but their students, and really want them to succeed.
Sometimes, at least in my department, the program is SO united that it comes off a little cliquey. Everyone in the program knows everyone, and it can be a little daunting in the beginning, but the people are very welcoming and this goes away quickly enough.
