MCC has great scholarships, good choices in classes, and decent advisors. The school feels very much like a high school in the way teachers act towards students and the lack of a creative curriculum. I enjoyed my time there and I believe it prepared me well for my 4-year university. Don't miss out on PTK while you attend!

The faculty and staff at MCC have been amazing! They are happy to assist in anyway possible. This is a completely different experience than at my previous college. I wish MCC would have been my first choice after highschool. The online resources for class are very helpful. I am able to stay up to date with all announcements, upcoming events, and of coarse class work. I do not dread going to school like I did in the past. The campus is kept near and clean. Buildings and classrooms are easily found.
I really enjoy being at Meridian Community College, there's more to do in the community and in the city. The graphic design program is really fun, and I have made more friends here while attending MCC. Lots of the staff and certain students have been so nice and helpful here and I really enjoy it. The only issue I have is that I wish they had different types of housing for female students and more social clubs for the students as well. But overall, I can say that I enjoy MCC.
