I had taken one other online class before it all switched due to covid-19. That class was great and I love that they offer 8 week online classes. They are quick and challenging, but not too challenging. They are just enough to make sure you know the material. Once the rest of my classes got switched to online- it was still great! All my professors remained calm and was able to answer to my emails very quickly when I had a question which was super helpful.
Overall, I'm sure it's like any other community college. When I entered college, I was still a senior in high school, but since the age range is so diverse, I didn't feel weird or out of place. Most of my professors I really enjoyed and had little to no issues with. Some of my professors I really wished taught more classes because I loved them so much. For the most part the classes you take are just the right level of difficulty; they aren't too advanced but they aren't so easy that they feel like high school classes. I used my A+ money at school so I really got my moneys worth. The area is safe as well as the campus. It's a bit out of date but nothing is falling apart terribly and they keep it nice and clean. Overall I have had a great experience at Maple Woods and I would recommend the school to anyone interested!
MCC is a great school for getting the basic general education credits required for an Associate's Degree. The class sizes are small enough to receive individual attention and assistance, and there are several resources on campus such as tutoring, an excellent online library catalogue, and student events to help with FAFSA, transferring, and career preparation. Overall, the quality of the education was good. I was challenged with the assignments and workload, but felt that it was still possible to balance work/school/social life. The cost of MCC is also very appealing--it's just a fraction of what one would pay if attending a typical 4-year University! My credits at MCC are transferring nicely and I have had no issues taking my Associate's Degree and transferring to my four year school. MCC also offers several online classes which have been wonderful for my busy schedule. Some of the classes are more challenging than others, but they are a wonderful option.
