4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I haven't actually started yet, but, I have met and spoken to a few of the professors and everyone seems friendly and very helpful. Does it help that I am an over 50 full-time student? Yes, I think it does.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel there is a great opportunity for me to get a job in my desired field because the school has so much interaction with networking, employers and such.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The resources seem very modern and up to date!!! Beautiful buildings.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I will get to go in the field.

Academic Flexibility: I'm in the process of obtaining financial aid which they refused originally and now I am appealing. I find the whole process ridiculous as i have submitted everything to them and they still require copies ...again!! It's very maddening to keep sending the same stuff over and over, like my tax information is magically going to change!!

Online Courses: I find online courses, for me, not to be a wise idea. I get very bored and wander through the internet. I have zilch discipline with online. I do much better in the classroom.

3 College Senior

Facilities: I hear it's ok but I go to school for class only

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: My mother is a single parent with three kids who are now college students.. I feel asthough me not getting much won't cut it for me where I'd probably have to work 3 jobs to be able to afford 2 classes .. Where is justice ?

College Junior

Career Services: I have not applied for any Post-Grad Services, therefore my answer is Non-applicable.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: All of the campus activities are amazing when they are well planned and all the people are involved in the process.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computer network can be taxing sometimes but other days it runs great. It can hold a lot of power and speed when so many users are on the network.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: My major technically is not at the school, it falls under a combination of Childhood Education with Psychology, therefore I need to take more classes than necessary if the major was applied. It also gives me a more rounded foundation (that is the benefit).

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Research your professors before attending class, and make sure that you know how to handle deadlines.

3 College Senior

Facilities: I did enjoy my time. It s hard to talk about campus life when you work full time and a part time job. with 2 classes there isn't much time for any extra activities. I did get involved with a toy drive at Christmas and that was awesome.

Criminal Justice Program had a lot of special speakers and things and those were good.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: It is difficult because there are no faces to know who you are chatting with and who the professor is

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I was so thankful for Jodi Bailey she was awesome. She helped me a lot with the confusing paperwork.

College Senior

Career Services: I have not used any of these services. I am employed full time and I love my job but in order to move up, I need to get my bachelors degree.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: I had no time as a night student to get involved with campus activities and as I stated most things were no available after 5

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: I was able to access the Wi-Fi easily on my kindle and able to do stuff if I needed to. Cell service was alright.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: it is a nearby school with some flexibility. I have noticed many activities are only available during the day. Also, due to budget cuts the library closes early and is not open on the weekends when many night students need access to the library.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: It was a great school and the Criminal Justice program is really great

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: the internship portion was awesome. It is a good hands on tool not just bookwork. I enjoyed the classes and most of the professors.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: It's easy to forget you have them sometimes

Being a relatively small campus, MCC has its pros and cons. Because it's compact, this allows for more one-on-one attention between students and professors. Professors know students by names instead of by numbers, which is really helpful when it comes to learning. Also, students get practical hands-on experience both in and outside of the classroom, which often leads to job placement. On the other hand, the campus also can feel like a mini-high school sometimes, especially since it's attached to a magnet high school. In fact, high school and college students share a gym. Also, because it's a small school, the resources aren't always so plentiful. When it comes to the computer labs, it seems like you can't use them unless you have a class, which is frustrating. 

While many students are friendly and involved on campus, just as many others are only there to learn and leave. It can be hard to make friends because it's a commuter school. However, the one thing that unites everyone is the goal to further their education and careers, which is pretty cool. Another gripe from students is not enough advertisement for events and activities. However, if a lot of people don't want to get involved and just want to go home after class, then advertising for these activities kind of defeats the purpose. Overall, MCC is a school that's a good platform to transfer to other schools in the area, providing you quality education at a relatively cheap price.
