Throughout my college years, I began to take school more serious. The teachers want more out of you than you realise. As a person, you will grow. Because the class sizes are smaller, you won't miss a lot of information on what you're learning.
Am enjoying being here
The teachers here are great role models! Most of the professors I've had here have had wonderful personalities and are very personable (and also very humorous). The campuses have something for everyone. If you like the university setting, apply at the main MCC campus. If you like a smaller campus, apply at the Red Mountain Campus.
Bang for the buck
I have had many classmates say it's down right dirt cheap to apply and it is super easy to receive grants. MCC is definitely more bang for your buck!
Tips for prospective students
MCC is a great way to help transition to the universities. It's cheaper, so you can receive your pre-recs at more than half the cost.
Great for these types of students
This school is great for anyone!

There are the teachers that you don't like and can't really learn well with, but there will always be those types. There's free math and psychology tutoring if a student needs. The teachers are always willing to help when they can because they genuinely enjoy the job.
Am enjoying being here
I've made so many new friends and even have seen some old ones that I haven't seen since my sophomore year of high school and they always greet me. Thee school has so many different clubs to keep you engaged and a variety of classes you can chose from.
Bang for the buck
The tuition is relatively cheap especially if you're strapped for money the school even has it's own scholarship to help you get in.
Tips for prospective students
You ALWAYS need to do your homework no matter how trivial, insignificant or hard it seems. Those missing assignments add up and at the end of the year you get stressed out and your work becomes trash. Trust me I know.
Great for these types of students
If you have no idea what you want to do yet, Mesa Community College is a perfect place to start. When I came here I had no idea what I wanted, but now I have a possible major n psychology because I've had two amazing teachers and next year I'm going to slowly achieve that major.

They have helpful teachers and offer a vast assortment of resources to utilize in your studies. Plus, there are two campuses to choose from that each have there own great qualities. I attend both campuses for the best selection of classes and the opportunity to benefit from what both have to offer.
Am enjoying being here
I have had a very pleasant college experience so far. Everyone I encounter on campus is extremely friendly and helpful. I always am able to find what I need.
Bang for the buck
The classes offered are extremely affordable. I am able to attend college full-time and still cover my expenses.
Tips for prospective students
Just explore the school and what it has to offer.
Great for these types of students
It is great for pretty much everyone. The student body is widely diverse and there are plenty of student clubs to explore and meet other students with similar interests. It is great for students who want to learn a lot without paying a lot.

Most of the teachers at MCC are really educated and know what they are teaching. I think that they give the student everything they need to do well in whichever class they are taking and it is up to the student to grasp, memorize, or let it go. I personally have learned a lot and wish that it was a 4 year college because I feel like I would really educate myself there.
Am enjoying being here
MCC has alot of different activities and programs to give a student an enjoyable time there. I do enjoy it there and found myself going earlier and staying later to just bask in the ambiance of the school and all of the people there. The teachers are all so caring and wanting the success of the student that some are willing to go that extra mile for the students. Even without mentioning the free food that is sometimes there, MCC is really enjoyable.
Bang for the buck
MCC is one of the cheaper colleges to attend but I don't think you get what you pay for...I think you get more. The curriculum is a little higher than what you expect going into a community college. The teacher there seem to want to give you their knowledge so you can become as fascinated in the subject as they are.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure to choose your teacher wisely because like at every institution there are teachers who enjoy teaching and there are teachers who could care less.
Great for these types of students
I think it's great for every type of student out there. There is something for everyone.

The professors here are great and because it is a community college, they are more focused on your education than research.
Am enjoying being here
Mesa Community College tries to give the students a campus life. There are two coffee shops, stands around campus selling food, as occasional events to make it seem more like a university than a community college.
Bang for the buck
MCC is definitely worth every penny. The advisors there are great at helping you find scholarships if you are in need of financial aid.
Tips for prospective students
Community college is definitely a good idea for kids just pursuing their associates degree, but it is also a great idea for kids looking for a BA degree or above. Remember, employers are not looking for where you started out, but where you ended.
Great for these types of students
Great for anyone in need of financial aid that can not afford university tuition, people looking for their associates degree, and kids who need an easy transition from high school to a university.

Mesa Community College is a number one destination when applying to a new school. MCC contains one of the most relaxed, entertaining environments while attending a college. With it's highly intriguing education, MCC is a school of dreams.
Tips for prospective students
New students should know that there is no pressure at this school when applying for colleges. MCC welcomes all students who plan to achieve success in the future. With it's small classes, professors focus more on an individual rather than leaving you with questions.
Academic Rigor
MCC has a very unbiased sense of education. MCC welcomes and educates anyone who trying to achieve greatness and puts academics first. Definitely the school where students learn to gain an unbiased opinion on life.
Dorm Life
This college does not contain any dorm or housing plans.
Food and Dining
The Cafeteria contains almost any food that is on your starving college mind. It is the perfect place to sit and relax with friends and new college buddies.
What to do for fun
There are numerous computer labs to browse your favorite websites during breaks from classes. There is a giant cafe with all your tasty treats that one would ever need. The library is super close to any class and sits in the middle of the school when you need a daily reading break.
Bang for the buck
MCC has an ongoing process of welcoming from all students and is the place to be. I experience new greetings from new people everyday and am always entertained when walking through the halls.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
There are many spots in the middle of the school where people go to sit under a tree where shade is a friend to our Arizona skin.
Great for these types of students
This school is great for transfer students and students who want to enjoy a relaxed environment while attending college. Definitely not a party school. It is better because it focuses on only education and helping a student's future.
Campus Safety
MCC is well known for their safety and security. Anytime that someone is in a bind, MCC security rushes to their every needs. Especially in the Arizona heat when cars break down, the safety group helps any student in need.
