Lots of people have bad things to say about community colleges. They say the education isn't as good or that you won't get that college experience. With MCC, that was not the case. I went to MCC straight out of high school, knowing I should probably go to college, but still unsure of what I wanted to study. Since the first day I stepped on campus, I've had nothing but positive experiences. First off all, the campus is well laid out and kept clean. The classes are smaller than the university so you get a more intimate learning experience. There are always activities going on, food to eat, and people to meet. I loved that I could get the college experience that I wanted, without paying thousands of dollars. MCC also helped to prepare me for ASU, which I desperately needed. I have such a love for MCC, and owe my incredible college experience to that great school!
Review Mesa Community College
Mesa Community College is truly one for the history books. Throughout my time at Mesa, I have gained unreal experiences, genuine friendships, and universal knowledge. Within the past two years, a lot has happened to me both for the better and for the worse, but those experiences and happenings made me into the person I am today. I have been a full time student at Mesa for both years with a part time job; all while managing the Women's Volleyball Team there and being the VP of the NAACP club as well.
The professors' truly care about your grades, which is a plus; most colleges you are on your own, but at Mesa, they genuinely want you to succeed.
The sporting events are always fun too! Not only do the athletes give there all no matter the sport, the fans are 100% in tune during the duration of the game/match.
With that being said, I would most definitely recommend attending MCC, it is truly unlike any other college!
MCC has done a wonderful job at connecting students with faculty, as well as making new/incoming students feel welcome. The wide variety of student organizations, such as clubs, makes it easy to get involved and connect with others. Although MCC is the only community college I have attended, the year-and-a-half I have spent here has assured me that there's no other community college I would rather go to.

One thing I would recommend change for, are the advisors. Perhaps they need more extensive/proper training, because many students (myself included) have been misguided by their advisors. For example, some advisors have been known to mistakingly suggest taking classes that a student didn't even need for his/her major, among other issues.
