This school or all community colleges are great for those students who are looking to save money for just getting their associates degree. You can get the same college education here for a small fraction of the price compared to going to a state school. There is many classes available and picking classes is pretty flexible whether you want to go to school 5 times a week or just 2 times a week. Me personally, have only had two bad teachers the entire time I've been there. What i mean by "bad" is that while they understand what they're teaching, there methods of teaching are very questionable, and I am not the only one in the class who thinks that. Another downside is the other students that go there. It is very had to make friends there even if you are a sociable/outgoing person. It seems a lot of the students can be awkward/ not friendly at times. Many students just want to go to class and not make friends it seems. Although, you will meet a few that are fun to be around as well. Not as easy to make friends as school though. The work load is easy to handle if you have good time management skills, I work part time(15-30 hours a week) and still manage. Overall, I would recommend MCC to anyone who is looking to save money their first two years of college.
