Other posters have stated that MTC is very friendly for adult learners, who work. I would DISAGREE! If you need any tutoring services or need to go to the library forget it. The campus hours are until 5pm on most days, 5:30 at the latest. I have to take time off from work anytime I need to handle anything administrative. You can take a lot of general education classes at night, but once you hit a certain point in your program most of the classes are only offered during the daytime. Other than that, MTC is a great community college.

The college is great for students who are just graduating or who work and have families. The tuition is cheaper than a university. The teachers and the students are friendly. The school also has a lot of clubs and opportunities for students and groups to help students learn and succeed. One thing I don't like about the college is the financial aid office being so unorganized. My favorite experience would be the trio organization and the Subway on campus. My school is different from a lot of other schools because of this and also because the credits transfer almost to every other campus in our state unlike a lot of schools. I would do it all again because Midlands helped me to adjust to college and I learned so much while going to school here.
