I love Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College; the professors are amazing and they are always there for their students. I feel very safe attending MGCCC because they have a campus police department; who is always there. MGCCC goes the extra mile to get their students involve with the campus. MGCCC does not just offer full semester classes but they also offer half semester classes, weekend classes night classes, and many more options. The food is AMAZING! I would recommend MGCCC to anybody because it is a great school.

MGCCC is a great community college. They offer so many different opportunities for their students and strive to help everyone earn their success. The faculty members are very helpful and are great and teaching their subjects. The students are always sociable and open-minded to all the diverse individuals that are apart of the MGCCC student body. I can say that this school is a no judgment zone for sure. For the most part, students are always upbeat and positive about their classes and enjoy taking part in this college.
I love that MGCCC's professors are very hands on. They make sure that each student understands the material. The professors even make students feel comfortable to come and talk to them about anything. The learning lab on campus benefits me tremendously. The staff there is always friendly and respectful. The librarians are the best at helping with research papers. The cafeteria is very poor. Most of the time the food is very poor. Luckily, Perkinston is close by Wiggins and Gulfport to give one more food options. The student center can have more things to do for students on their off time. Andrews dorm can us various of updates. MGCCC can use more parking spaces for those who live on campus. MGCCC can also use for student activities, clubs, and scholarship opportunities.
