How to utilize school resources

Hi everyone, today I am going to discover what study or life resources we have on campus is helpful for us and free!!!

When you arrive United States and start your study abroad life in MiraCosta college, you may be surprised how thoughtful our school is and how much free resources or helper is opening their arm to us and waiting for offer help. Let's take a look together!

  • Cafeteria: I have to say we maybe have the top 3 nice cafeteria in United States, we have different healthy yummy meals everyday and all kinds of bakery, lot of types of drinks. We've got sushi too! anyway Cafeteria is one of my favorite place in campus!

  • Library: There are so many books and scholarly resources, most important: super friendly and enthusiastic librarians. Once I was asked from my homework to find some materials that I don't know much, when I was getting so nervous because I do not know how to find it and the due date is coming soon, I went to library. With librarian's help, I got what I need within 20 minutes, isn't it impressive?! Not only books, in the first floor of library we also have writing center and tutor program, which as you can image is really really helpful for our study. In college, almost all of us need to take English for couple of semesters so that in case to make sure we can do good in English, Writing center is absolutely good place to go. They are patient and literal!  So far we have tutors for math, Spanish, Chinese..etc, almost every main majors.
  • Career Center: Strongly recommend!! There is a big possibility you need it. If you are having questions about future career or have not decide what major you are going to do, or you want to find a job inside campus, Career Center is the perfect place to go!
Those are all I can think up now, if you are new student in MiraCosta, utilizing those resources may give you big help!

Finals are coming!!! :( :)

Hi everybody, final is coming, I don't know about you all but I am a little bit anxious and nervous. This semester I don't have very difficult classes except English 100. I am not very good at writing long scholarly essays so I am kind of struggling, now I am putting more time on it; I don't go out and hang out with friends as much as before, instead, I study in coffee shop most of the time .I wish I could get 4 A grades! good luck to myself and all of my school mates.
