    Will enjoy being here

    I have been to Massasoit multiple times and every time I went it was very enjoyable

    Will learn a lot

    Accounting wasn't my top choices for a career. But recently I took a class at Brockton High School and loved every moment of it. That is my new career in life.

    Campus Safety

    the campus police are very friendly toward the students and are constantly present around the campus, giving the students a strong sense of security. there are also emergency call boxes all over the campus just in case.

    Greek Life

    none.

    Great for these types of students

    if you're like me and trying to save a little money while still receiving a quality education, i would definitely go to massasoit.

    Bang for the buck

    for the low tuition rates, massasoit offers so much to its students. from intelligent and passionate professors to an academic resource center that will stop at nothing to help a student in need, this school offers a great value for its price.

    What to do for fun

    the campus is always sponsoring activities for us in the student union building. from ice cream parties to drunk driving simulations, there's something going on there at least two days per week.

    Food and Dining

    the cafeteria food is questionable at best. it's your typical cafe slop: american chop suey, mac and cheese pizza, some kind of asian style meat, washed down with a really weak coffee. it's not going to kill you if you must eat it in a pinch, but i wouldn't recommend everyday consumption.

    Dorm Life

    there are no dorms at mcc.

    Academic Rigor

    a lot of people come here initially thinking that, because this is a community college, there is little or no work to be done by the students. this could not be further from the truth. our professors here are still highly educated-- i don't mean to brag, but i had two last semester that had graduate degrees from harvard--and expect their students to work at or above a college level. there are, of course, a few professors who basically just hand out a's for showing up, but that happens at any college.

    Tips for prospective students

    buy ear buds for the library. there are constantly students in there making a lot of noise by yelling or blasting music from their computers, and the librarians do nothing about it. my advice is to plug in and tune it out. also, beware of the cafeteria food!

    In three sentences

    the professors here are great! they are all very knowledgeable and are willing to work their schedules around students, if needed. also, there are lots of on-campus activities available to the students.

    Bang for the buck

    Free tutoring available in the Academic Resource Center from peer and professional tutors.

    What to do for fun

    Always events happening, courtesy of Student Life. Art shows, discounted movie tickets, and many charity options are constantly advertised on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Faculty and staff want to give students the best education possible. Many classes are core requirements and other general education courses, but beyond those classes, courses can be challenging.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not assume the classwork will be less rigorous, the faculty is a highly skilled and educated group of people. Always be aware of transfer opportunities, though the college is a great place to start, their transfer programs make transferring a pleasurable experience.

    In three sentences

    Massasoit is a place, for many students, that offers a second chance for an education. With a loving and caring faculty, students are given personal attention in classes. The opportunities available to students make it nearly impossible to not be a part of at least one group/club on campus, and these opportunities are growing infinitely.

    What to do for fun

    There are so many clubs to join to entertain yourself. Club activity is a great way to get to know new people.

    Food and Dining

    The food and drinks are reasonably priced. One of the good deals is fried dough on Friday morning. Make sure to be there before noon to get the deal!

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm at Massasoit, but there are some posts for room share at times, so keep looking.

    Academic Rigor

    Education is not your obligation, but your privilege. There are some people who are seriously committed to their education and you might see some who are not. It is totally your call since you will be treated as an adult in College.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are ready to be successful for your future, come and study at Massasoit!

    In three sentences

    I love studying at Massasoit because of 1) helpful and thoughtful professors, 2) the efficient assistance of the tutoring center and 3) reasonable pricing for the courses that are transferable. Also, there is a wide age rage within the student population that makes me motivated to continue learning.

    Campus Safety

    There is always officers around to help you in anyway and keep all students, faculty and staff safe.

    Greek Life

    There isn't much for Greek life. They do have PTK; the international honor society.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a lot of different types of clubs and activities. Everyone can find a place they belong.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who want to take prerequisites before transferring to another school or for students who aren't sure what they want to do but still want to attend school.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Campus has a daycare on campus that my peers really loved. Massasoit also has a few campuses so if one location doesn't offer a class you need or want you can most likely find it at another campus. The campuses are all within a half hour drive of each other.

    Bang for the buck

    I spent two years at school here and paid for almost all of it out of pocket. Most of my credits transferred to the four year university I now attend. I have very little debt after attending this school.

    What to do for fun

    They have a lot for fairs for different ethnicities, careers, and some just for fun.

    Food and Dining

    The food could be better if the culinary students did the cooking. The cafeteria staff are friendly however.

    Dorm Life

    There is not dorm living.

    Academic Rigor

    I was very challenged and my professors were a great help along the way.

    Tips for prospective students

    Talk to your advisers and professors; they will help you a lot in figuring out what you need to accomplish in the time you are there.

    In three sentences

    Professors are excellent. Cost is affordable. Most credits transfer to other shcools.

    Campus Safety

    VERY SAFE. Many officers are on campus walking around and driving around to make sure everything is safe on this campus. The best thing about this campus is that there are buttons on the walls which are on every part of the campus, and if you or someone else is in danger or something is going on all you need to do is push the button on the wall and security will be there to help.

    Greek Life

    I think there is 1 fraternity on campus but, as I said before if you feel like there needs to be more frats and sororities get 10 people to be in the group and talk to the president and he or she will approve it.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs and activities here. If you feel as if there needs to be a club here all you need is to get 10 students to start the club, go to the president of the school and tell him or her that you want this club to be started and tell him or her everything that you need and he will approve it.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for people with learning disability or any type of disability. Anyone that is lacking in math or English. Anyone that doesn't want to go off to a 4 year college/ university because they dont want to be far away from home or anyone that doesnÃ??t have the money.

    Bang for the buck

    Very Cheap

    What to do for fun

    There are many things to do for fun on and off of campus. Off campus there is a mall, bowling alley, a few clubs and bars, etc. On campus there are in and outdoor basketball courts, outside soccer field, inside volleyball court, baseball, softball, and a swimming pool inside. In the summer time towards the end of June into mid July there is the BROCKTON FAIR. Brockton fair is fun and exciting. A lot of people , friends, and family go there. If you do have a child or children its great to go there. Many rides for the little ones. There are rides for adults as well. ItÃ??s best to be safe and go with friends or family. There are some dangerous things that happen at the fair but if you have fun and do not get involved in drama then you will be safe.

    Food and Dining

    Massasoit has a small dining area located near the library. Also there are many places to eat in Brockton. Because Brockton is such A big city there are many fast food restaurants to eat at. Some of the places are extremely disgusting and nasty but, there are some places that are great. Also there are restaurants as well that are good.

    Dorm Life

    Unfortunately there are no dorms on the campus but, there are apartments near the campus and in the city.

    Academic Rigor

    not to sure because I do not go here.

    In three sentences

    Amazing place to start off, classes are great and teachers are hands on. It's amazingly cheap for any one starting off college and does not make lots of money. The courses are amazing and again, the teachers are wonderful and know what they are talking about because they have worked in the area of studies they are teaching.

Each class that I have taken has challenged me, thus, elevating me to a higher potential! The teachers, staff and resources are beyond what you may expect for such a reasonable tuition.

    Food and Dining

    The food is not the best but they have chicken tenders and fries all the time. Who can beat that?

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms at Massasoit. If there were, I wouldn't transfer anytime soon.

    Academic Rigor

    In Massasoit there are a lot of classes that are fundamental for students that don't score high enough on the placement test. It's a longer process because all of the fundamental classes have credits that will not transfer. At the end of the day, the fundamental classes will really help you get into the class you need to be in so Massasoit isn't really that challenging.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be on your professors good side and make sure you have all of your work turned in with minimal missing assignments and you will get through!

    In three sentences

    Massasoit Community College is an excellent choice for students who want to boost their GPA before transferring off to a 4 year school. Most professors are very professional and actually care about you and will help you. It's very easy to make it in this school mainly because everyone is here for the same reason. To Transfer!
