Am learning a lot
I am a Music Major/Computer Minor attending Merced College. The courses and classes I am taking here are quite nice and giving me much of a education and focus into taking my career to the best potential it could be, or at least to the next step.
Am enjoying being here
Being with every student here is great. Most students you can strike up a conversation with and just chat about anything really. Social life here is amazing for being a open campus without dorms. You occasionally get some of the locals here and there for fun stuff in the quad.
Bang for the buck
The price couldn't be better. Even with rising fees and expensive costs, Community Colleges still far outrank most Universities and Private Schools in terms of cost, even though the education can get looked down as being less than for the price. It would be as my mom always told me, Buying by the brand doesn't exactly make the quality any better.
Tips for prospective students
If you want to gather a serious education that is definitely within a good price range and you don't have to make costs for Tuition, Board, Food, and everything else soar to more than 10k, then Merced College is a great start and even a great finish to your College Education.
Great for these types of students
Merced College is great for pretty much any students, whether they be social, non-social, Art or History or English or Math or whatever kind of Major/Minor. Merced College can and does provide when need be, even if working with Administration can be somewhat difficult at times (but it seems every school is like that)

I am not as student yet but I have heard a lot from students there and a staff member there. The environment is extremely friendly. Students have a lot of positive feedback to say about. I am looking forward to being apart of their success.
Will enjoy being here
I have been on the campus several times and I never want to leave. It is so student-friendly and awesome.

Am learning a lot
The curriculum is pretty straightforward, but some can be difficult. Overall, it is important to know the materials when it comes to doing well at college.
Am enjoying being here
Social life is both good and bad. You get to hang out with your friends, but different schedules can be an issue because it is not the same as the one in high school.
Bang for the buck
The tuition is less expensive than going to a 4-year university, especially for those who are living with a low-income family. Also, if you are in the honors program, you will receive more scholarship money than the ones at a 4-year university.
Tips for prospective students
Apply for scholarships, especially for you guys that will transfer because the tuition is expensive at a 4-year university. This also includes the ones for private and out-of-state schools. There are some clubs such as the honor society, psychology club, and criminal justice club because it is important to impress the college admission.
Great for these types of students
This is great for any students who needs to save money and get the general education courses out of the way so you can focus on your major preparation.
