Madison Area Technical College Reviews
Madison College was a great place to go to save money for general classes (such as math, english, psychology etc). I got lucky with most of my professors, as they were very knowledgable and organized. Many of my friends had professors that showed up late, didn't really provide a schedule and gave out assignments with no instructions. It seemed as though the professors just wanted to get in and out, which they should care more about teaching the future generation. I didn't truly feel challenged in any of my classes. The most challenging class I had was Statistics. The campus is beautiful and brand new. Parking is free but is quite a walk. I was also a part of the soccer team but it's nothing like I expected. I have played soccer for 14 years so I was hoping for a really competitive level. Most of the girls had never played soccer before so unfortunately it was a waste of 2 out of 4 years of college soccer but still made great friends!
I love how modern the True Campus is. Everything is very accessible and students have access to an outstanding amount of resources. The Student Achievement Center rocks to get your papers proof read, get a tutor, or to meet with classmates. You can rent out study rooms, work out in the fitness center, use Madison's public transportation, and so much more, all with your student ID. Just a short drive from down-town Madison, those who want a truer college experience can go enjoy the nightlife or other activities happening near the UW Madison campus.
Madison Area Technical College is a community college with campuses all over Madison Wisconsin. It's main draw is for students seeking a technical education in regards to a specific trade or Wisconsin residents seeking to get their general education credits done here so that they can transfer to a state school in 1-2 years to finish their Bachelors. This path usually saves students $15,000-$20,000 over those 2 years and is the reason that I'm attending. The major draw is that you can get college credit that can transfer to so many different institutions but the downside is that it is at a community college. A lot of the students there are in their 30's or 40's, pretty weird, and as a reflection MATC has a huge drop out percentage. Not to speak negatively of the whole school though. The professors I've had so far are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. And the coursework I've done has been challenging yet rewarding.
