Overall

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.

Academics

The class availability is pretty vast. Its easy to find a schedule that fits your personal life. It is flexible enough to work around your work schedule as well. The professors available are for the most part good. Only had two professors that along with my fellow classmates, didn't agree with their teaching methods. The class sizes are also small enough to where you will have chances to ask questions which is nice. The teachers are very accessible outside of class during their office hours, usually always there to help you out and answer questions. The workloads I would say is the perfect amount, not too little, not too much to where you are stressing. My advice is just to stay caught up and dont fall behind. Otherwise that will catch up to you, especially during finals week. Overall, the faculty there can be helpful, my advice would be check reviews on the professors and ask around to friends/classmates which teachers they had and liked when picking your schedules each semester.

Campus Facilities & Safety

The campus atmosphere seems somewhat non-existent. There are a few organizations worth looking in to. But there are for the most part, none that are too exciting. I remember seeing an advertisement for a drag-show. If this is what my tuition money is funding, It makes me somewhat upset that my money is going to something I see pointless as this. As far as other facilities available, there are plenty of computer labs available where its easy to get an open computer. Another great thing is the SAGE Center. Its a free tutoring center for subjects such as English, Math, Chemistry and plenty of other classes available. The SAGE Center is open almost daily and the tutors there are very knowledgeable and helpful. The actual student body, is non-existent. Can be very hard to make friends there. It seems like most students are there to just go to class and not make friends or aquantences. Although there is hope you will find some nice people who are very friendly.
