Being a relatively small campus, MCC has its pros and cons. Pro is that because it's compact, this allows for more one-on-one attention between students and professors. Professors know students by names instead of by numbers, which is really helpful when it comes to learning. Also, students get practical hands-on experience both in and outside of the classroom, which often leads to job placement. On the other hand, the campus also can feel like a mini-high school sometimes, especially since it's attached to a magnet high school. In fact, high school and college students share a gym. Also, because it's a small school, the resources aren't always so plentiful. When it comes to the computer labs, it seems like you can't use them unless you have a class, which is frustrating.
While many students are friendly and involved on campus, just as many others are only there to learn and leave. It can be hard to make friends because it's a commuter school. However, the one thing that unites everyone is the goal to further their education and careers, which is pretty cool. Another gripe from students is not enough advertisement for events and activities. However, if a lot of people don't want to get involved and just want to go home after class, then advertising for these activities kind of defeats the purpose. Overall, MCC is a school that's a good platform to transfer to other schools in the area, providing you quality education at a relatively cheap price.
