    Great for these types of students

    Best for rural-suited people. MECC's credits transfer easily, for people who want to start small.

    Food and Dining

    The Red Fox Grill has really great food, but it is a bit pricey, and the workers can be rude.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are more challenging than others, but nothing too difficult.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take your work seriously, and you'll do just fine.

    In three sentences

    MECC has a pretty easy-to-navigate campus, without much going on around it. They give away plenty of scholarships, and is cheaper than most in-state colleges. Overall, it's a pretty decent place to go.

    Clubs and Activities

    from Spring Fling to the events and guest speakers held in the Cyber Cafe students will be well entertained at least once a month.

    Great for these types of students

    Perfect for students needing the general education requirements to any 4-year institution. Also recommended to non-traditional students as well as military veterans.

    Bang for the buck

    By far the cheapest two year institution around and with the financial aid available very affordable.

    What to do for fun

    The game room / cyber cafe always has something going on. If you are there in the fall I strongly suggest to check out their Haunted Forest

    Food and Dining

    The Red Fox Grill is the best food you will find so I suggest stocking up on your food vouchers!

    Dorm Life

    No dorms of yet but they are doing construction on the campus all the time so who knows...maybe soon.

    Academic Rigor

    Course load is not too stressful just be sure to keep up with your assignments and attendance.

    Tips for prospective students

    Meet with your advisor at least once a semester, not only will you keep on degree track but they are there to enourage.

    In three sentences

    Full of caring, smart professors that encourage and strengthen the student. The students there are the most humble and friendliest I've met. Overall a well rounded school that encourages every student to their full potential.

    Campus Safety

    This is a very safe campus. Security is visible, active and I have always felt very secure, both, in the classroom and on the campus grounds.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I have been tremendously insprired by the BEST Science teacher I have ever had throughout my educational career. My freshman year Biology instruction is the most amazing instructor any student could very imagine. She knows how to teach, reach and inspire students. I aspire to be as wonderful as she is.

    Campus Safety

    Campus emergency phones throughout the parking lots and campus, street lights throughout the parking lot and campus, there aren't many other people around in the evenings/night, but this area is known for its low-violence.

    Greek Life

    No greek life

    Clubs and Activities

    Very few options for clubs.

    Great for these types of students

    Anti-social - people are friendly but not overwhelming. Studious - many options for studying and late library hours. People needing help - many tutoring options and handicap able facilities and options

    Bang for the buck

    Very cheap, yet still good schooling.

    Food and Dining

    There is only one on campus cafe but it's food is very good and cheap!

    Dorm Life

    Academic Rigor

    Not as challenging as many universities but you still have to work for the grade.

    Tips for prospective students

    Study and stick to your work.

    In three sentences

    Very cheap but good schooling for your money! Small, country (hick) student population that doesn't really get involved in the already small numbered extra-curricular activity options. Wide array of options for your financial aid; they have a universal scholarship application that literally applies you for all scholarships the school has to offer.
