Did learn a lot
I definitely feel that I learned a lot at MCC. I enrolled right after high school and it allowed me to really find my learning style which I had not thoroughly established in high school. My GPA almost doubled from that with which I graduated high school. I feel that I not only learned academically but the professors and counselors helped me learn things about myself that I needed to discover. Things like why was I really there and was did I expect from myself. I would never have done it and graduated in two years without the help of the MCC faculty and guidance staff.
Did enjoy being here
I enjoyed my time here because I found motivation that I had not previously seen in myself. I was surrounded by a wide variety of people and so I was able to realize that there were definitely more types of students than myself in the world. As an art major, I really got to know the faculty well and they were very helpful in my progress as a student. I also found that there were really incredible professors in every department because I took full advantage of the vast options of courses available.
Bang for the buck
I was able to complete my first two years of college and graduate with an Associates degree without a penny of student loans. I have applied and been accepted to a private four year school, which are infamously expensive, and I am proud to say that I will graduate that with half the loans of my fellow students because I chose to attend MCC first. Also, because it is a highly accredited school, I was thrilled to find out that over 65 of my credits transferred, even though this university is private and out-of-state. That is very impressive and should show the high quality education you can receive in a smaller intimate setting, and for a fraction of the price.
Tips for prospective students
My tip for prospective students is to stay motivated. It is easy to not go to class and drop classes and stay an extra semester or a year. The biggest advantage I gave myself was take as many and all the classes I wanted. I started my first semester with five classes and continued that, also taking two summer classes and a winter class. I graduated with honors and transferred as a second-semester junior, with most of my credits accepted. MCC allowed me to get myself on track. I found a love for education at this college that I have never experienced before. It was the best decision I made for myself and I have recommended Middlesex County College to anyone considering it.
Great for these types of students
Middlesex County College is great for students who may not have graduated high schooling with a plan for the rest of their lives ready. There is really almost any class you can think of available and putting yourself into the environment is the best way to determine what you want. I left high school never wanting to go to school again and after Middlesex I have applied to a four-year University and am considering a Masters degree, in a different major than I thought I wanted when I first left high school. It is a great atmosphere in which to nurture the wandering soul.

Middlesex County College is one of the top leading community colleges in New Jersey as it offers up to par faculty in financial aid services, instructing, subject departments and academic advising. Middlesex is a good place to start if you are looking to transfer because it offers a more affordable education in obtainment of an associate degree. Middlesex over all is a great college that has had many success stories and many more success stories to come!
Tips for prospective students
Make sure to study for the placement exam. Studying for the entrance exam will help avoid placement into remedial courses which are not counted as credits toward a degree or in the cumulative GPA. Check the professor you register for at ratemyprofessors.com
Academic Rigor
The courses offered are satisfactory and will provide you with a lot of knowledge if you are registered for a good professor.
Food and Dining
The dining is not the best, but the food is really good. The food offered is delicious but not to much is offered on the menu.
What to do for fun
There are normally really good movies that are being played in the Student Center.
Bang for the buck
Middlesex County College also has a partnership with colleges and Universities that enable you to complete a B.A in some degree areas.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
An unusual part of campus would be Rartain Hall which is where the English department is located. The building is an old structure, it is primarily a basement, the numbering on the rooms are not in any type of order therefore it is like a maze in there. The elevator also takes a long time, avoid using it.
Great for these types of students
The Business students would enjoy the lectures of many professors from the Business, Accounting and Legal Studies department. The professors in those departments know tons about the business would because they are or have been a part of it. I have had a Certified Public Accountant and small business owners as professors.
Clubs and Activities
Clubs include a range from Photography, College New Paper (Quo Vadis) Gay Alliance( Rainbow Coalition), Student affairs and government to the EOF (Educational Opportunity Funding) Club.
Campus Safety
There are many police officers present on campus. The police are seen and respected. The officers assure campus safety.
