4 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Its a good school. Really easy to find your way around. Everyone is very friendly and helpful.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: If you need help with anything its very easy to reach teachers through their email.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I have yet to take any of the core classes for my program due to confusions and some issues, but I feel like the curriculum for the majors are pretty good. Not an excessive amount of gen ed to do, just enough.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I have learned a lot from the classes I have taken here. I have taken a wide variety of classes and there are only a few professors I have even had an issue with you which was never anything too major. The registration process is really easy. You can do it online or in person at the Registrar. The workload I think is easy to stay on top of. I have taken 4 classes at once and at times could feel a bit overwhelmed but when I kept myself on track when things are due, I was completely fine.

4 College Junior

Facilities: I absolutely love the architecture of the school! The main hallways are pretty much just windows and you can usually always see the outdoors when in these hallways. It's nice when It's really sunny out because you can still feel the warmth of the sun and have so much natural light. People more keep to themselves but people also do open up when in a group setting making it easier to make friends and study between classes or grab lunch.

3 College Junior

Student Body: I see a diversity of students here. There are many different ages and ethnicities. Since the school offers a variety of different majors you see all sort of people. I haven't really encountered many people I had a problem with while being here. I also haven't experienced really outgoing people either though. i feel like people at community colleges more keep to themselves because they aren't living on campus.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have never really had to transfer credits. I have not received emails back about information of a program. i work at a restaurant so I can work with them when it comes to school, but most of the time I can find classes at times that I would like to take them.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition isn't too bad to afford since I live in Connecticut, but it would help me a lot if I actually got some sort of financial aid. the only instance I got any was a grant my first year of school. After that I've received nothing and I have very good grades and my parents don't make all that much money, plus I am the one responsible paying for my tuition.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I think our library is an extraordinary library for a community college. It is sometimes hard to find an open computer but they still have a good amount. I also like how they have group rooms you can reserve because for once class it was all group work and having the to our accessibility made that very convenient.

2 College Junior

Campus Resources: I think the wireless could be a lot better. I almost never have wireless services on my phone, which would therefore say that it's slow and unreliable. The only computers that really have good internet connection are the ones that they have in the labs and library.

College Junior

Online Courses: I have never taken an online course. I tried to once but was too confused on how it worked so I dropped it.

College Junior

Career Services: I have never actually used the Career services that they offer.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have been going to school here for almost 3 years now. I have enjoyed most of my classes and professors. I have only been to an academic adviser once and she absolutely did not help me with any of the questions I had. There has also been a time I emailed a program liaison about some information about the program and never got an answer. I do however think most of the staff is very nice and helpful. I think the food selection and quality could be a bit better but's a community college and people don't have to eat there like at a college with dorm rooms. I have not really received much financial aid from them except for my very first year.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Wish i gone to an actual University

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Work load is manageable but having a job too if kinda ruff

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Feels like I'm still in High School

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I wish they had more scholarships and financial aid packages

2 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online courses are easy to cheat on and I didn't learn anything.

2 College Sophomore

Student Body: People don't get along. Too much drama and no pride in our school.

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.
