The School overall is great. Both the professors and advisers are friendly and very helpful. The smaller classes are easier to lean in with an environment similar to what I was used to in high school.
Tips for prospective students
I would recommend that you speak with advisers early as the small classes can fill up quickly. Also, don't be afraid to talk to your professors one-on-one, they are there to help you.
Academic Rigor
The professors really know their stuff, and many of them have been teaching for years so they know how to handle the class-room setting.
Dorm Life
There are no dorms at the school, however there is a decent looking apartment complex right across the street from the school, but I haven't been inside it myself.
Food and Dining
Just like with the dorms, there is not a dining facility at this campus, but they do have several vending machines if you need something quick before or in between classes. There is also a Subway near the bookstore.
What to do for fun
There are several classes that you can take, being continuing education classes, that do not count for credit. Or if you are wanting something a little less expensive there are several clubs you can join, or just go to the library.
Bang for the buck
The smaller classes are very efficient if your not used to the high paced college classes yet, and the entire district has the lowest tuition rates around, possibly even on a national level, but I'm not 100% sure on that one.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The campus is still growing as more space is needed, so it can get confusing when a new building has been added, but once you have been to class 1 or 2 times, it becomes very easy to find your way around the school.
Great for these types of students
Fresh out of high school, returning to college after a break, or just wanting to learn something new, Mountain View is great for everyone!
Clubs and Activities
I'm not personally in any of the clubs, but Ive heard great things about them from other classmates.
Greek Life
I haven't seen any toga parties but Ill keep an eye out for them!
Campus Safety
Every day when I'm walking out of the campus I see at least one of the campus police officers paroling the parking lot, and their office is easy to locate if you need help.

My first thoughts and impressions of MVC is that being at an atmosphere such as this is a blessing and an awesome experience. Being around these dedicated and very interesting students and teachers is something of a complete and enjoying experience. Moving about to my classes is a very fruitful because it's easy and just plain interesting to know that I have other dedicated and committed students as much as teachers. In my first day, I have to say I learned a lot.
Tips for prospective students
Be yourself and stay proactive around the school campus.
Explore new ideas of learning with your friends and teachers
Express yourself in class and stay in touch with your teachers to get the full blast of the learning experience.
Get in involved
Academic Rigor
Very compatible and fun time being able to learn from this well respected group of teachers.
Dorm Life
No dorms
Food and Dining
One word=SUBWAY
What to do for fun
Exercise at the campus Fitness Center.
Learn how to swim at the campus outdoor pool.
Use the Wifi that is at your disposal.
Bang for the buck
I feel like I am receiving special one on one attention even though I'm surrounded by other college students, but overall it's a great experience.
Great for these types of students
Calm or serious types of students.
Looking for a great education but at the same time saving loads of their money.
Clubs and Activities
Musical traditions
Acting and theatrical traditions as well
Campus Safety
To be honest I feel very safe with this highly capable and from the looks of them highly experienced in the name of safety and protecting the rights of students or teachers.
