What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wonderful college that offers the perfect community college experience in the beautiful city of Miami. The college works around your schedule and tends to be quite flexible both in terms of class times and financial aid. This college is perfect for working-students with busy schedules.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

MDC is the largest college in the world. Seriously. It was formally Miami Dade Community College, but became Miami Dade College when it created a bachelors of science degree in medicine. There are a lot of campuses, such as North Campus, Wolfson Campus, Kendall Campus, Medical Campus, etc., and if you're looking for a different type of Miami experience, pick the campus. Wolfson is personally my favorite because it is in the middle of Downtown Miami, next to Bayfront, where all kinds of people exist and move fluidly through the campus. A person could gain a lot of experience from the sheer amount of diversity of students on that campus alone. As anyone will guess, Miami is not a "college town." It's probably one of the top 3 most internationally known US cities in the world. According to a Nigerian friend of mine on campus, he said Nigerians only know three cities in the US: New York, Hollywood, and Miami. All kinds of events happen in Miami. Among my favorite is the Miami International Book Fair, where exceptional authors and publishing companies hold seminars and sell books right in the middle of Wolfson campus. Miami is proud of MDC, but the students aren't necessarily touting it like those of UF might or FSU. And it is largely just a community college, where the efforts and beauty of the college lie in its development of the Miami Community as a whole. It's not a serious scholar's delight, most of the time. You'll find some exceptional professors, but the vast majority of them are average. There is an Honors College at MDC.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Before starting my undergraduate experience, I always heard Miami Dade College was one of the best community colleges in the nation; however, I used to doubt this statement knowing that the institution accepts almost every applicant and has a very low graduation rate. Things worked out in a way that I am currently a student at the Honors College of this institution, and I must say that now, I completely agree with the statement. Miami Dade College currently has 8 campuses and offers study abroad, more majors than most of the well known universities, and other graduate degrees. Despite it being a community college, most of the National Honors Societies, clubs, and organizations are actively represented on campus. The college does not have the best faculty, but there is at least one amazing and knowledgeable professor per course. The same thing applies for the financial aid staff on campus; most of them are not helpful but some advisors do more than asked. Apart from its regular classes, the Honors College at MDC covers full tuition and prepares its students for transferring into highly known universities. Miami Dade College is not the best 4 year institution, but based on its resources as a community college, it could not be much better.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Miami Dade College is a great opportunity for everyone to have a chance at education on basic or traditional careers. It also provides great facilities and technologically up to date equipment. The food facilities are great and have healthy meals for faculty and students. However, the school does not have much focus on the arts.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cost effective and a plus environment. I don't regret going there because the classes are very nice. It's really relaxing sitting on swings and seeing the iguanas, birds, and the beauty of nature on the campus. Every room has cool temperature with a chill vibe when you walk in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its an okay school, I am only there for 2 years. Its a type of school where you get in and get out. I should of worked harder in Highschool to get into an actual university but I didn't. I would recommend this school to people who don't care where they go. I think it is a great school for adults coming back to get an education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Miami Dade College is always frowned upon due to it being a community college. In reality I have had professors who also teach at Florida International University currently, and several other professors who came from other states and other universities. With that being said I feel like I am receiving the same quality education as any other person attending a university, but I am instead saving money and had time to decide what I was passionate about. Professors here are great and are more than willing to help you out with literally any struggle. I would highly recommend this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college is great due to its affordability and they small classes that they offer. The college could work better at helping students finding ways to pay for their tuition, I felt like it was difficult getting help with this area and I wasn't given any support besides rejection of how one certain way of paying is not eligible but not why.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love MDC! The campus is amazing the staff is outstanding. The only thing I’d probably change or wish for is that they have student housing. I also would want them to offer scholarships for students who don’t or can’t apply for financial aid because they should want to help everyone.
