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!

The professors are very friendly and helpful, and the performing arts program is really good! There are some little classes that are very fun to take in interesting. The biggest problems I have personally had are parking and getting things cleared by the program people, but an in person visit usually clears everything up.
I am currently a student and a part-time student worker at Madison College. Overall, the school provides me with a high-quality education, an excellent environment for me to study, and a place for me to socialize and meet new people. With that said, I think the school definitely has a lot of room for improvements. The cafeteria at the school's main campus, Truax, has about less than ten food options available, including but not limited to a salad bar, noodles, burgers, and wraps. However, due to the relatively high prices of the foods, I usually hear from my peers that they are hungry most of the time and that the school should reduce the food prices because the tuition is already quite expensive. Another area where the school could improve on is safety. Even though all the campuses are equipped with numerous security cameras and a safety office, people who lose their belongings on campus, even within the vision of the CCTV, don't usually get them back.
