Its a great school to learn at. Beautiful campus with lovely gardens and water fountains. Designated smoking areas and helpful drivers to move around campus with easy. Go to rate my professor for instructor reviews. Wonderful EMT/paramedic program horrible ADN program may be losing their approval for nursing board. Passionate professors. Seriously, each of these professors are well skilled and educated in their field (MCC requires 3 years of working experience)
Encouraging- MCC professors are open to their students for advice about their own degree (I'm a Poli Sci major, my government professors has been more than happy on many occasions to ask about my goals, ambitions and advise me on what to do)
The classes are decently priced. The campus has lots of diversity with race, religion, and sexuality. The food and drinks on campus are really good. The faculty is pretty nice overall save for a few teachers who seem to have it out for their students but that is few an far between. Most classes are fairly easy and this is a great place to get a good degree for cheap!
