What Students Are Saying

3.07 Average Rating
MCC has treated me well so far. It is not very demanding as far as school work and pressure for homework. I enjoy the small classes and how personal the feeling of the classrooms is.
Logan from Whitehall, MI
The Administration office is a bit of a mess. However, the classes are wonderful. I cannot express enough how engaging and thorough my teachers have been.
