What Students Are Saying

3.43 Average Rating
This really depends on both the teacher and how much you want to push yourself. If you're okay with doing the bare minimum to pass, then the school isn't challenging. However, if you are actively interested in challenging yourself and seeking a great education, there is work to be done! The teachers will provide thoughtful insights at the end of class and thoroughly review material. Homework is not assigned to keep the student busy, but rather to further their learning outside of the classroom.

Attendance is a MUST. Your grades depend on it.

Time-management and planning are important if you want to succeed.

At MCLA, you can explore many different interests at one time. It's a liberal arts college.

Buy your books online from textbook websites. It saves a ton of money.

Professors are very accessible. They want to see you succeed. Many live right in town. They are heavily involved in the activities on campus.
