Meridian Community College is a great college for such a small community in Meridian, Mississippi. Everything building at the college is easily accessed making it a great for not being late to classes. The teachers there are willing to help their students succeed. And what makes my school so unique is that even though Meridian Community College is such a small community, I feel that were very know because students come here to like my Meridian Community College says, "Graduate.Start.Finish.MCC"!
Review Meridian Community College
I transferred to Meridian Community College in the fall of 2016. Some of the things that I like about Meridian Community College is the small family atmosphere. Upon arrival at Meridian Community College on the day of registration, student workers and other staff members were in place and ready to assist with any area of need. They made me feel so welcome and they made the registration process very smooth. This semester, I was accepted into the Associate Degree Nursing Program, beginning in the spring of 2017. This process too has been extremely organized and easy to complete. I really look forward to my future experiences at Meridian Community College.
Being in the Medical Laboratory Technology program is one of the best decisions I have ever made. One of the most unique aspects of my program is that you can be accepted as a Freshman right after you graduate high school. The instructors allow students to take their prerequisites while also being in the program because in the first year the work load is not stressful. In the second year of the program, internships at selected hospitals are required for a grade. Currently, I am in my second year with the program and being introduced to internships at selected hospitals will allow me to hopefully get job opportunities right after graduation. However, it is highly like to be offered a job due to its high demand of people needed.
