What is your overall opinion of this school?

I started school in the fall of 2016, i attended the portage section behind the college. At first things were great i thought i was on my way to a great program. After my first semester things got a little complicated. First off i thought i would receive a degree at the end of my first year only to receive a technical diploma. I also found out that if i wanted to do a second year i would only obtain a technical diploma as well. I also found out that i could have applied for an associates degree that would take me further in my profession than the program i was enrolled in. On top of that i was also told that the program i am in will be a associates degree but a year after id already be done with the same program requirements as the technical degree would be which means id have to come back. then the rest of my second year classes are only offered in a campus about an hour away from where i live. As far as help and getting involved with students who need it i didn't get that feeling i didn't meet my adviser until my last year in school if i was given guidance and shown how to navigate the technical college campuses and programs id be a bit less confused right now but unfortunately that is not the case. There's not much opportunity for scholarships in my program also. All in all once i graduate ill be back within the year and it makes it hard to compete without all of the appropriate tools educationally.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy going to the college. There are many opportunities for students to participate. My professors have been great so far, and they seem to really care about their students. However, politics on campus seem to lean one way, and sometimes I feel as if my opinions do not matter, or sometimes I feel attacked by people who I do not agree with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

MATC is a great place to start at. My professors have been good so far, and if there is anything you need, they can direct you to their office hours or tutors that are available whenever you are! The affordability of it is another factor I considered when applying to this school: most courses offered at the university level you can find here for a fraction of the cost! I am a low-income student and it's not easy covering finances and studying to make sure you get by. MATC hosts many clubs and organizations that include a semester stipend, so not every expense is out-of-pocket. I also chose this school so I can receive a higher GPA than if I was at a university. This is like a glamorized high school, but it's a good place to start, from ages 18 to 81!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been very happy with all of the professors so far. It is a great school with lots of amenities. I have a lot of timing options for classes. Online options, nighttime classes, and accelerated summer classes. This allows me the flexibility to still carry a full time job during the day. I am also a mother with busy high school students, and it allows me the ability to be able to still see all of the schooling events that go on through out the year. I was unhappy with my initial adviser, and it took a lot of work to get a good one, but when I did it all fell into place. Great flexible, affordable place to go to go to school for any age.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great campus and a wonderful place to go to college as a first year student, out of high school. The reason why I say this is because the instructors are here to help you and will email you back as soon as possible. Also, the facilities here are top of the line and are open most if not all day which is helpful for morning or night classes. students are able to choose whether they can do night or morning classes to fit their life and job, etc.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Firstly, its hard to talk about the whole MATC since it's split up throughout Madison. I was only on Truax campus, but the classes are great depending on the professors. There is a mix here of people who care and people who don't seem fit as an instructor else so do your research if you want. The building is really clean and new. I was there during and after construction. It's overall a nice place to go and get things done. You'll make friends in class, but there isn't much social aspect unless you put yourself out there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Madison College is great if you're looking to save money but also have hopes of attending a 4-year university in the future. The school strives in its student aid services, meaning there is never a shortage of resources and help. Although, due to the universities "get in and get out" attitude, it is very easy to feel lost or confused about your personal timeline at the school. For example, the school doesn't even have my old transcripts on file, which is require during the application process. If they don't know the classes I have previously taken how can they decide what still needs to be taken? It is small organizational factors that really exemplify the schools weaknesses. Overall, it seems as the school has made efforts to ensure student success by fronting numerous resources but struggles with securing the continuation of post-secondary education for its students.
