I was a student for a short while before the renovations began and a current student now that the renovations are almost complete and there is a completely different feeling about attending this institution. There is a greater investment on technology than before. There are expanded courses in the health and protective services, they have their own buildings not. There are more classrooms now that administrative services have been moves to the new Gateway center. The process of registering for classes is much more streamlined now, you can get an update on your academic progress any time. The school has also done a great job at keeping the tuition rates low while providing a great educational experience. My favorite part is having instructors teaching courses that they have real life experience in, it makes for a more engaging classroom experience.

MATC is hands down the best technical school out there. It's very affordable; but you get your money's worth. The teachers/faculty actually care about us(the students) and take time out of their days to help with whatever we may need. I love the atmosphere of this college, it is very inviting and friendly. There are so many clubs/other extra curriculars to get involved in. At MATC they take education as well as the well being of their students very seriously, and find a fun way to educate us and involve us in our learning. I wouldn't even think of attending a different school. I will truly miss MATC once I transfer out. This is a great school in so many ways; I'm proud to be apart of it!

I took a short class at MATC and it was perfect if you love smaller classes. Although some lecture halls offer much more people, most classes ranged around 30 students. To me, this was perfect. I came from a very small town and to be comfortable in college I wanted to start off with a smaller classroom. My professor was very kind, and she allowed us to come to her after class with any questions which was also very beneficial. I've heard of some professors not being much help, and this was not the case at MATC.
