Miami Dade College is a great school. I this may sound silly the most memorable times spent at the school is when I at the bookstore. I love the book store. I am a great fan of books and the trinkets that have in the store is create. When you are finish with your shopping you can sit outside on the many benches and swings that MDC has recently installed. You can choice sit by the lake, under trees, or under the open sky. The chose is yours. For prospective students it is imperative that you that MDC have more than one campus. The campus that I describing is the North campus.
