    MPC has a bunch of clubs, but there doesn't seem to be any club festival where you can see all of the clubs or anything. So if you want to see the clubs, you'll have to dig for them. However, there are loads of school events to socialize at. I've seen a job fair (where you can get interviewed on the spot!), a Native American cultural festival, an Earth day festival, and a number of stress buster events right around finals week. Off campus, there is also Del Monte shopping center, though this small settlement can get old if you go to it too much.

    Because MPC is located so close to the beach, often times students take their studying outdoors. Also, clubs are constantly putting on events with music, food, and entertainment around campus (I've even seen jump houses a few times).

    Monterey is a beautiful town with many ocean related activities. It lacks the fast paced lifestyle and nightlife of the big cities, but is a great local for science and art majors.

    Not very many people hang out on campus. Many people just come for their required classes and then leave because they have jobs.

    For fun, the beach is a 10 minute walk away. There's also clubs and sometimes lectures from interesting people who come to the college.
