Detailed Ratings

I am a former student of the Broadcasting and Telecommunications Major. I absolutely loved to story tell and write, so I majored in Television. I was able to gain hands on experience with various assignments in the field as well as projects without the intimidation of huge classrooms and little attention to an over packed university. My professors were so informative and easy to talk to, funny and lively. The experience of MWCC was an empowering and great learning experience that I will use for the rest of my life. I am now in Los Angeles CA pursuing work in the arts and entertainment industry.
