I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at MMI and walked away with much more than a associates degree. While I was at MMI, I was able to grow as a student and became a better version of myself. Because of MMI, I was able to be successful at a four year college, which would not have been possible without attending Marion first! I am very proud to be a graduate of MMI and I recommend the college to anyone who is interested.
