What Students Are Saying

3.44 Average Rating
Metro is a school that offers a lot of potential and I have truly enjoyed my experience there. Overall I have had wonderful instructors and now that I am getting closer to earning my degree, I find that I have very knowledgeable professors in my department. I work in the Food Bank under the office of Student Life and have loved being able to work this work-study job, which allows me to do my homework when my work is done for the day.
