Detailed Ratings

MGCCC is affordable for students similar to me. I like about MGCCC is that the counselors are helpful and always available for the students. Also, the professors always email me back when I have questions. They believed there are no such thing as a stupid questions. My most memorable experience is learning how to write. For many years, I had problem with writing, but a big thanks to the professors; I am slowly improving my writing. To the prospective student, this is an amazing college that would help you get where you want to be in life.
