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 am a current student at MCC. I have had a few good experiences here. Most of my professors have been great(few not so great ones, though). Admissions is awesome, and so is the financial aid office. Also, there are A LOT of older(AKA over 25) students here(like me).Most importantly, I learned a lot with me being here, and have passed all my classes. I got accepted into 4 different programs. However, some young students and professors treat you differently and look at you weird if you are an older student. Not a lot of activities. Also, the college is not always good at scheduling things. The college does not provide daycare or anything related to that, either. Some classrooms are very small and cramped.
This school is very helpful in helping one to completing their education. They have so many different ways you can attend school. The schedules are days, evenings and weekend. The instructors are very knowledgeable and helping the students to learn and become comfortable in the clinical setting. They also believe and understands that one can have other issues with family and financial responsibility while attending school; and will get help for you. This college is a well rounded and believe in adults learning.
