Community College is a school in which people come and go and do not try and be there when they do not have to be because everyone has jobs and things to do. I really enjoyed my classes because overall I had very good professors. I did find it hard at times to communicate and make friends just because there are not many ways that people try to get involved, but it was possible. Overall I think that my three years here have been a good stepping stone preparing me for my future school. I recommened it anyone who does not know what they want to major in, trying to save money, or just not ready to leave home yet.
Mercer County Community College is a great step into college for people who are not ready for college. I personally feel this college can be compared to a high school for the advanced. The professors are all diverse ranging from bad to amazing. The area overall is a great location which is right by Mercer County Park.
The main reason MCCC is a good college is because of the professors. They care about you and they want you to succeed. Also they talk to you on a personal level. They don't pretend to be someone they aren't when they walk into the school. It's really easy to relate to each other and to spark a conversation non school related.

great opportunities and great teachers. I like the James Kearney Campus and find it easy to access. The classes I have taken so far have taught me a lot and have made me think of future opportunities to look into.
I really enjoyed the beautiful environment but I had many issues figuring out where to go and in the beginning I had a problem with figuring out the layout of the map.
The college helped shaped my goal and which direction I wanted to choose. The campuses have a diversity of students, awesome professors and advisors. I chose this college to also further my education when I graduated as its partnered with 5 bachelor degree programs. So students who can't commute far can stay close by or even do online with the different schools of choice. Awesome school. I recommended it as well to my daughter who took college courses while in highschool. This experience helps kids and prepare and shape them for what to expect once they enter.
Overall classes and professors are great. Student communication is poor. I would like to see more students getting involved.
I am having a good time attending the school, and the students and teachers I've met so far are wonderful, and my program is great. however, the financial aid office sucks.
The admissions staff are very helpful when it comes to your education, and the environment of the school is very uplifting. Most of the other schools I looked at were not as welcoming.
The campus is small, but nice. It's obvious that some of the teachers there are really passionate about what they are teaching and want to see their students succeed. A great starting point for you education.
Everybody is so friendly, and there's so many opportunities. If I could change one thing, it's the amount of information they give you.
The faculty are very nice and are there for when students need extra help during and after class. There's online classes you can take as well as online viewing for your grades, schedule, announcements, and assignments. The technology on campus is a little behind date and not all the classrooms are heated or have air conditioning though.
Great school easy to get to and there is two campuses. They also have a great theater for plays and shows.
Mercer County Community College has an incredible art department for being a community college. The professors are all in their field working as well as being a professor and always do their best to help you make connections and find opportunities for students to start their real life experience as soon as possible with paid internships and charity projects there is always something going on. I cannot say much for the rest of the school however as an art student I know I made the right choice starting here. The number one thing I think needs to improve at this school is communication and how they treat their faculty. Much of the school is run by programs online and the different departments do not communicate enough to keep a smooth line of understanding when it comes to things like admissions and financial aid. My best suggestion is to always do your scheduling through a department advisor and not your appointed counselor.
Mercer County Community College is a great school with all different majors and you can transfer credits to any college or university. The teachers are very helpful in getting you to your goal, everyday tutors are available day and evening for your convenience. Security make sure you are safe st all time inside and outside of the college. Finanical aide assistant is great and advisor s are equip to help you.
Some community colleges may not be as bad but at MCCC, many professors I had there did not care about furthering their students in their career choice. I had one or two very good professors that sincerely cared about their students and answered any questions necessary; but most professors did not explain the 'why' and the 'how' with the complicated animating program and game engine we were using. A lot of the time we were just hit with "look it up on Google" ... seriously? Why am I paying to be here then? Also, most students there were very immature and practically silent. I would find almost everyone in most classes I had there would not participate in class or even respond to me. Very odd school.
It's an older school and they don't offer a ton of classes in the summer time or after work for working adults. I had to take numerous classes at much farther community colleges since MCCC did not offer those classes even though it is within my county. Also, be careful with the adult non-credit courses such as phlebotomy. It cost me over $1500 dollars plus the $200 for the actual certification and no luck of finding a job. They don't help you look for a job or have any plans/programs with hospitals. the dummies were all so old and used up too that it was pointless to practice as they were thoroughly utilized before. Save your money and invest elsewhere.

My experience at Mercer County Community College was great. One of my favorite aspects of Mercer is the extremely diverse student body that drives the creative side of the college. People from all walks of life--young, old, European, Asian, Middle Eastern, etc--attend this college. This melting pot of cultures builds cultural awareness among students, and discourages cultural relativism.

Moreover, I particularly appreciate the willingness, of all the professors I have had at Mercer, to meet with students to address concerns, pose questions, and provide guidance on a variety of matters. This aspect of Mercer is fantastic since students and faculty can build bonds and in turn promote mutual learning.

As well as, Mercer's administration encourages student participation in on- and off-campus activities. I myself took advantage of the many avenues students can take to become involved in campus activities--I founded a political action club.
There are a lot of programs for different interest. there are two campuses. Free wifi. Modern lab and up to date classrooms. Professors vary on weather they use all amenities but most teachers have something to recommend them - real life experience or superior teaching style. The phone system is antiquated and it is difficult to do any financial aid or enrollment business by phone or email. You must physically go down to the school. Also the advisement system is a crap shoot. You can be assigned or not assigned and more than likely you will get conflicting information. It pays to ask every question 3 times, just to be sure.
