President Burke has agreed to extend Caterpillar's contract recently for training replacement workers in the event that USW 1343 does go on strike. As a current student, who was recently invited to the Honor Society, and a Cat worker spouse I am not very pleased with the school right now for supporting this company and what they are doing. I'm also not pleased with how eagerly they have their hands out when it's time to make payments for my classes while I do not have a clue when or if I will be able to continue my education if my husband does go on strike against Caterpillar. Not sure how M.A.T.C. thinks this is bettering a community.
I like the convienient locations. I also like that I have a choice of classes be it online vs. in person, variety of days and times. Mytips for future students would be to make sure they knowexactly what courses to take and to continue all the way thru to keep from being discouraged, because the cirriculum gets harder and longer every semester.
