I really love being a student at Mac! The professors are all very helpful and sincere with wanting to help you understand the material. The students are great! I feel very lucky to be attending this college. After a not so good High School experience, I have really excelled academically for the first time! I really enjoy the whole experience and positive surroundings which I know all contribute to my current GPA of 4.0. I am beyond happy.

This college sits about at an average rating for everything due to the fact that there are multiple student surveys sent out about improving campus, and nothing ever happens. There are some great professors, and there are some not so great. It is very expensive, but there is huge scholarship opportunity if you have the right criteria. All of the buildings are very run down and old. The campus no longer allows living off campus without a huge scholarship cut, which is very frustrating to the students because the campus dorms are overflowing with students. We are charged additionally for air conditioning in the dorms, along with living closer to the other buildings.
The staff is personal and kind. The professors are easy to get to know. The older students are helpful to the newer ones. It is easy to make good friend groups. The campus is small and welcoming. Finding supplies and books for classes is a simple one step process. The community around campus is inviting and it is easy to get involved in church and community activities. The campus is located near the town square where there is a movie theater, book store, coffee shop, and several restaurants.
