I wanted to share with you my favorite class at MiraCosta that I found interesting and recommend it to you all.
Philosophy 100 Informal to logic taught by Professor Jim Martin.
I was impressed by this class, before it even started- it had a custom book!
The for-sight- put into having a custom book was breath-taking.
He knew exactly what the students needed- nothing more- nothing less.
Philosophy 100 Informal logic is a CSU & UC transferrable course that falls under the category of the Golden –Four, which is a common term used by the staff at the transfer center making this class beneficial in many ways.
The work load for this class is suffice and the lectures are enlighting.
The assignments are down-right fun.
I don’t want to spoil it for you, yet I’ll tell you that the main focus of PHIL 100 is to open your mind to how logic is used in a Nation-State, for example a court of law

Happy Holidays fellow Spartans, this is the season for you to play like old Saint Nick and save yourself tens of dollars, while buying text books as presents for yourself! T.E.X.T book, it means The Extreme Xpensive Tool to many students, which is needed to study with in order to pass all the classes their enrolled in. I have known some sudents, MiraCosta students, who don't like to buy, or can't afford, text books because they're too expensive. They'd rather get by on copying pages out of open reserve text books from the library, which is not a bad idea for students that think they really only need a little bit of information throughout the semester. Another option are the open reserves and closed reserves, both located inside the library, building 1200, on the second floor. The open reserves are open to anyone, while the closed reserves are only for those enrolled in the class which a specific text is required and it has a time limit, sometimes these books can be taken home. Now if you have the time to wait for a book, the book loan program hosted by the Extended Opportunity Program located in building 3000 may be for you, their book loan office is to the left of Dean Robert's office in building 3445. The book loan program has most text books used each semester, but they are a donation based program so it is limited, so if a Professor decides to use a new edition they may not have it. So continuing through the campus, the MiraCosta book store located in building 3400, managed by Follet, is supplied with exactly what a MiraCosta student needs, it is a one stop shop that has fresh new text books, used books that are almost brand new, and a new feature which alows students to rent text books for a fraction of the full price. These resources are all great and help support MiraCosta students to the fullest, after you have checked out all the resources listed above and you still need more options you can check your nearest MiraCosta cork board and see if any fellow school mates have the text books you need for sale; also ask your professors if they have a copy of a text you want that you can barrow. So good luck and don't let Those Extreme Xpensive Tools (Text books) break the bank this up and coming Spring semester of 2013-Happy New Year and good luck.

MCC Halloween Fundraiser-P.O.C.
Hello MiraCosta Spartans- student body did you know that your own Parents On Campus club; which you may be a participant in, have heard about, or may be interested in- is having a Fundraiser for the Halloween season, for the last two weeks and will be continuing for the last week of October. Your support is needed to help fund their annual activities such as an Easter Picnic, fall semester beach barbeque, Thanksgiving dinner, and end of spring semester picnic. I have heard the President of P.O.C entertaining the idea of having a Christmas party, so come on out fellow Spartans and support MCC’s PARENTS ON CAMPUS, and don’t forget to ask them about those activities they're fundraising for- you may be able to volunteer, or come join them for fun. The Halloween candy bags are selling for $1.00 & $2.00 in the cafeteria hallway, please buy some for an associate, friend, lover, relative, enemy to make up with or a stranger (BOO)!!

Cesar Chavez and I
Hello, MiraCosta College students, for my first Post I would like to introduce my Family and myself to you and give you a little insight into my life. I’m 33 years old with a beautiful wife named Amanda Marie who is a current student at MiraCosta College, studying History 111 (American- 1860-present) and communication 212 (argumentation), so she can finish her lower division-transfer and attend a four-year University in the Fall of 2013.
I have a young boy, Daniel Lawrence, age 5 attending Kindgarten at Coastal Academy, a part-time Charter School/home-school in Vista; he will be turning 6 in February, on the 14th. He is very active and social for his age, with one season of little league under his belt. He has attended one M.M.A class and one Jujitsu class. He is a junior gamer- putting many hours in on our Wii- playing Sonic Colors & Wii Super Mario Brothers. He is balanced on a Skateboard, bicycle, and scooters. He has a high liking of the Black Eyed Peas Hip Hop group. He really enjoys Batman, Spider-man, Ironman, SpongeBob, and Phineas & Ferb. He spends a lot of time playing with the neighbor girl Darcee and his little sister, who is next in my family.
My daughter Naomi Lynn is 3 years old and an aspiring artist due to the fact that she draws all the time and especially at her Preschool the one and only MiraCosta Child Development Center located in the 7000 Building on the Oceanside Campus. She too will enter little league this spring; she is also a Black Eyed Peas fan. She likes television shows, such as Dora, Diego, Sponge Bob, and the Chipmunks. She doesn’t play console games, but she does like game apps on her moms’ smart phone and her Leap Frog Leap-Pad. She’s a good girl and I imagine her as a successful Scientist and her brother a mathematician they say they want to be” Astronauts”-why not? It’s in the private sector now.
My last and final son is Noah Christopher, he is 7 weeks old. He is a sleeper, breast milk drinker, pooper, peeer, and explorer of this new world. Noah will also attend the Child Development Center and Coastal Academy when he is older. He is a good baby who is no hassle at all!
Myself, I am a History Major that is taking my discipline more serious as the days continue. I have five classes at California State University San Marcos, Monday through Thursday, which is a blast so far, my brain is being stimulated to a maintainable state. I have an African American class, U.S. women studies, survey of world music, Political Science focusing on race and ethnicity, and the writing methods of a Historian. I love my classes so much and plan to have a great first semester at CSUSM.
Well until my next blog check out my links and pass the information on to fellow classmates and please let me know about your family ties. Have a Fantastic semester at MiraCosta College-Go Spartans!!!!!!!
