I like this school a lot. It is big but the class sizes are just like high school. It has everything you could ever need.
Tips for prospective students
The parking space is an issue. The transfer program is great. Be sure to talk to your academic advisor, a counselor, or see the resource center if you need anything. This school has people that can help you with anything.
Food and Dining
The food is amazing. There are healthy as well as unhealthy options. It all tastes good.
Bang for the buck
This is one of the most cheapest schools out there and they really teach you well.
Great for these types of students
This place is great for students on a budget, those who need a flexible class schedule, or those who would like to transfer to a 4 year university eventually.

The teachers seem to be very knowledgeable about their class subjects and generally care about their student's success. The tuition costs are very good for the education and there aren't any crazy hidden fees. The college also has many clubs and opportunities for student involvement.
Tips for prospective students
Come take a tour if you have any doubts. Once you get to the school, you will feel very comfortable and at home with the diverse student population and friendly staff.
Academic Rigor
Excellent. There is hardly anything available at top notch schools that is not available at MATC. There are many very intelligent teachers that have transferred from large universities because of the smaller, more intimate classes.
Dorm Life
There are no dorms at MATC, but there is affordable housing in the area.
Food and Dining
There are several options for hungry students at MATC. There is a regular cafeteria with great seating and food, there are plenty of vending machines for quick snacks, there is a gourmet dining room with fabulous cuisine prepared by the culinary students, and there is a coffee stand with lattes and pastries available throughout the day. The campus is also conveniently located for anyone who wants to go out to local restaurants for a quick bite.
What to do for fun
There are plenty of clubs and programs set up by the college and students for the students to get involved with. There are frequently movies, guest speakers, meetings, and other events that are available for anyone to participate in.
Bang for the buck
Great quality for low tuition price.
Great for these types of students
There are elevators and handicap parking for anyone with disabilities or difficulty getting around, there is a LGBT club for anyone with different sexual orientation, and there is a very active Phi Theta Kappa chapter at the school as well.
Clubs and Activities
Psychology, Geology, Film, LGBT, student newspaper, African Student Association, Anime, Math, Performing Arts, are just a few of the numerous clubs available to students at MATC. There is also the option for any student to start up a club of their own, all that is required is a few friends and a scheduled place to meet.
Campus Safety
There has never been a safety issue on campus as long as I have been attending MATC. The campus has a very active and centrally located public safety area and the local security guards are friendly, approachable, and can be seen roaming the halls at any time of day throughout the school.
