My experience at McLennan Community College of Waco, Texas has been incredible. I have the absolute opportunity to be able to be under such great teaching by great professors.

If there is anyone who is looking for a beautiful junior college at a great tuition, McLennan Community College is the place for you!

I started here as a dual credit student my senior year of high school and i have never been more pleased with a staff and accessibility of a school before this one! I am starting my first official year of college and I had some struggles finding time to sit down and register, but my adviser was so helpful and I was able to get it all done right away! My teachers have all been wonderful and extremely helpful, McLennan deserves 5 stars and more!
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)
