This is the most unaccepting place I have ever been. The amount of disrespect at this school is astounding. Yes, we have a diverse community but most of the people here are rude and disrespectful. Unless you are a bratty, over privileged white girl or gay guy, you won't fit in. There are cliques and judgement everywhere you turn on this campus. I thought I would love it here, I toured and thought "Yes! This is my place." I was wrong. The people here are awful.
The professors were unreliable, and hard to communicate with. Four out of my five professors in my first year at MMC did not follow with their grading policies, were incredibly vague about assignments, and gave tests that included information we had not yet learned. Most professors are very strict about attendence, and openly play favorites. I had a professor who spoke harshly behind the backs of every student who had missed class that day, and was openly rude to them when they came back. I appreciate that the school has a strong theater and dance department, but if you are not associated with either theater or dance, you are belittled by other students, even some faculty and not taken seriously. The classes are not too difficult, most professors tend to lecture and get off topic quickly, but exams, essays and projects tend to be detailed and require a lot of preparation that you most likely will not have recieved from the class itself.
The tuition is too high for the quality of education and the lack of activities offered. I'm a commuter to the school & I received two in school scholarships this semester and still had $10,000 in loans from just ONE semester & I come from a low income household. Other people have complained that the academics are weak, but I believe the academics are fine where they are. Some professors make the work more manageable. There are no sports teams or greek life. I love the small class sizes and the overall small size of the school because I get more time with professors and attention in class. The location is great. There is a strong lack of racial diversity as the vast majority of the school is white & female (I often the only male and person of color in my classes). Its pretty much a performing arts school and I am a psychology major. Its also fairly cliquey and not what I expected college to be like at all. Theres no dating scene. This will be my last semester here.
