Established in 1921, Modesto Junior College (MJC) is one of the oldest community colleges in the state. The college began with an enrollment of 61 students. Registration has increased and now more than 18,000 day and evening students are enrolled each year. In addition, more than 9,000 community participants take advantage of the ever-growing community education program.

To complement student growth, the campus has grown as well. The college holds the distinction of having erected the first junior college classroom building in the state. From this modest beginning, MJC has grown until it now provides courses on two sites: the original MJC-East on College Avenue and MJC-West on Blue Gum Avenue in northwest Modesto. In addition to the two sites, more than 20 community sites are used to meet particular educational needs.
