What Students Are Saying

3.19 Average Rating
just be willing to work hard, and every teacher will be willing to help you succeed. if you are looking for blow-off classes, then you are going to dislike some of the best teachers. they give you your money's worth, and is the best community college you could hope to enroll in.
Petra from West, TX
mclennan community college has a great athletic as well as academic program. the teachers and coaches have taught me great responsibility and given me knowledge that i will carry with me for the rest of my life. mclennan is also a great transition school for those who may not be comfortable with change.
