So your considering MCC? Smart choice. I have read some terribly uneducated remarks made by fellow reviewers of this school so allow me to give you some facts. I will give you the good, the bad, and the ugly. Over 70% of students attending MCC are transfer students, that is a beautiful thing because if you are undecided on what school you would like to attend for the last 2 years, you are not alone. Most everyone at MCC is a transfer student. But, the very fact that I have just mentioned is the reason I am very much looking forward to leaving MCC and going on to a beautiful, interesting, and creative liberal arts school. MCC is a transit school so naturally people are there to get the credits and move on. So no the social life is not great! That is common sense! Ha, there is no student housing… people go to MCC between work and sleep. The campus ( in my opinion ) is very well maintained but horrendously ugly and bland. The feeling of walking around campus feels like the city out of the movie "Equilibrium"… seriously… its like a bunch of zombies walking around. So what do we have, a anti-social, boring, ugly, zombie filled campus? Yes, but what is the upside about attending MCC? Its a great school. When you look at MCC as a school it is wonderful. I am sometimes shocked at the variety of classes offered, the professors are wonderful, the campus resources are sometimes shocking they are so accommodating. The Math tutoring amazing, the library is plentiful, the teachers are incredibly accessible, and the online community of MCC is very well though out. Wireless runs all through campus. If you want to shock yourself start checking out some statistics and facts about MCC. They are the #1 school in the nation for transfer students. And by #1 I mean Largest. That works out beautifully for me cause I have NO idea of what school I want to go to but I am at the right school to be indecisive. MCC is very widely recognized. Did you also know that MCC staff are paid significantly more than ASU staff? True, and it shows. Sometimes I am just baffled at how great the professors are. Its as though they dont even belong in Mesa… As for the price of the school, its great! Why waste your money at ASU getting general credits out of the way?! If you want to go to MCC but still live the ASU party life, fine, go ahead. Its easy. Just attend ASU parties on the weekends. That is the reason alot of students jump to ASU, jokes on them. You are getting the better deal by attending MCC. It is a fraction of the cost and the professors are better educated. MCC is sure as hell not some charming campus teeming with interesting characters, but its a wonderful school where you can take it seriously for a year or so and move on to bigger ad better things while all those guys at ASU are doing the same thing but taking twice as long and blowing twice the cash. You decide.

P.S. Every fellow student I have approached this semester have been really radical and genuinely interesting. True, MCC doesn't have much going on for it in the social aspect, but when it boils down to it you are at a campus surrounded by fellow students your age who are all thinking the same thing. Having said that, it is very easy to meet great new people and make a social life for yourself.
