I have loved my experience at Mountain Empire, all the professors I have had so far have been fantastic and very helpful and caring, all the student services and other employees that work there are friendly and help you as much as they can. So far I don't have any complaints, and nothing that comes to mind for the college to change anything.

MECC is a great school , it doesn't cost much to attend and it is close to home. The teachers are nice and willing to help in any way. Not to mention, this school is always so involved in the community. It has everything you could ask for from a college.

The school is close to home, offers several helpful classes, and is very homely. As a college freshman, it makes me less nervous about starting classes and getting to meet new people.
