Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

After graduating high school at sixteen, I needed direction and focus. MiraCosta College gave me just that. After meeting with the witty and knowledgeable transfer counselor, Lise Flocken, I had every tool to succeed. She helped me plan my education goals I quickly enrolled into the Honors Scholar Program where I met friends that only heightened my love for the school. When I was looking for an internship, the career services helped me form my resume and cover letters. I love the coastal vibe at MiraCosta! Everyone is respectful, kind, and ready to laugh. To future MiraCostians, create a goal, focus, and stick with it. You will succeed whether you are entering at 16 or 28. With the tools that MiraCosta College offers, and your perseverance to succeed, you will achieve wonders.
