Meridian is an amazing school that is set on making sure students receive the best education possible. It has a wonderful atmosphere and all teachers are more than welcome to go out of their way to help you. I recommend Meridian to anyone that wants a great community college experience.
Tips for prospective students
For any prospective students, I recommend taking a campus tour. All of the tour leaders are helpful in answering any questions you may have. You can also meet with advisors during your tour to discuss what classes would be best for you. The advisors are very good at helping work around your schedule.
Academic Rigor
Meridian's academic rigor is very high. Education is number one on their minds.
Dorm Life
Dorm life at Meridian is very nice. I live in the apartments on campus and I wouldn't have it any other way. All of the dorm parents and housing representatives are very nice and if you have a problem, they are there to help you out. The dorms and apartments are well kept and clean.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria at the college is amazing. They have a large selection and variety of foods. For those living in the dorms, they have meal plans that you can purchase so you can eat every day; breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is very tasty as well. If you do not like the cafeteria, the city offers many different food choices.
What to do for fun
The college has many different campus activities and clubs to choose from. The athletic teams are all really good and are normally free to students. There is also a fitness center and track for those who like to exercise. The surrounding area offers other activities such as skating, bowling, putt-putt golf, movies, the mall, and extensive shopping.
Bang for the buck
In my opinion, what you pay to attend MCC is worth it. It is not too expensive. This school is very helpful with keeping money in student's and parent's pockets. Financial aid helps out a tremendous amount as well.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
I am not familiar with any unusual traditions or locations on the campus.
Great for these types of students
MCC is great for students that want to learn in a friendly atmosphere. It is also great for students that need to have a flexible schedule. MCC is set in a city that is also great for students that like to go out and have a good time.
Clubs and Activities
MCC has some of the best clubs and activities in the state. The main two are Phi Theta Kappa and the Baptist Student Union. All of the clubs welcome any students that are eligible and always have something going on.
Greek Life
Being that Meridian is a community college, there are not any sororities or fraternities.
Campus Safety
One of the top things that I love about Meridian is the safety. We have some awesome officers that patrol our campus. They are very good about handling any problems that may occur on campus, as well as enforcing the laws and rules of the school. They also are more than willing to help you out in any way possible.

MCC is definitely not the best college out there, but it does have it's good points. MCC has a broad range of courses available to take. It's also affordable, convenient, and you're not likely to get lost on campus.
Tips for prospective students
Do your research online before signing up for classes. Some of the advisors at MCC do not know what they are doing and if you're not careful, you could end up wasting a lot of time and money on classes you don't need. I'm not saying don't do to MCC as this could happen at any college you go to. Just make sure you know exactly what you want to take before you sign up for it.
Academic Rigor
Most of the courses offered at MCC are easy, but only if you do the work and study like you're supposed to do. If you are having trouble, most of the teachers will take the time to help you.
Bang for the buck
Compared to many of the surrounding colleges, MCC is much more affordable and easier to get into. Going to MCC before heading on to another college is a great idea, monetarily speaking.
Great for these types of students
If you're from a lower income family, want to increase your chances of getting a job by learning a trade, or are just starting out in the college world, MCC was made for you.

Meridian Community College has excellent teachers who take time out of their schedules to help as much as possible. The education is at a sophisticated level, and the staff is very kind and reasonable with all questions. It might be called Harvard on the Hill, but the students get real help, actual conversations with their instructors, and a great first step at college.

Dorm Life
The ladie's dorms are very convienent. They are located very close to all of the main buildings as well as the campus apartments. All dorms and apartments are overseen by security officers. The campus apartments are also gated, and all guests must sign in. The only complaint is the gentlemen's dorms are across a very dangerous highway. The speed limit might be 35mph, but it is 5 lanes of traffic.

The Cafeteria gives a student many options. There is a salad bar, a variety of beverages, the Grill, and then regular cafeteria food. Each day is a different food. The Caf is very spacious and has TVs for students' enjoyments.

Students have in season games, the Fitness Center, different clubs, plays by the Arts, concerts from the Dimensions, chorus, and guitar ensemble, and seasonal festivals.

Am learning a lot
I love this college. The class sizes are small so if a student needs one on one help then no problem. The staff is really helpful and works with you to reach your full potential. If you need an extra class to keep you a full time student then the course advisors will work with you to find the perfect match. The course advisors will also help you get all the classes needed for a possible transfer to a 4 year university.
Am enjoying being here
With a laid back atmosphere a student will find it hard to not have fun. A student will make friends quickly and gain instant study groups. During both Fall and Spring semesters there are festivals with booths of food and games, to give students a chance to relax after their classes.
