We Asked Students, What's your overall opinion of this school?

Melissa

Good school, Not expensive, many of the faculty teach at other schools such as Rutgers. One downside is the service off campus, I get sent to voicemail 9/10 times I try to call the office' s seems like no one is ever near the phones. But other then that would defiantly recommend.

Arielle

I am pleased beyond measure about my decision to attend Middlesex County College!

GraceAnn

Middlesex County College is not a spectacular college, but you will get a very good education for the low price. The trade-off is that the food is terrible, the campus is very plain, and there are almost no sports. It's a good college if you want save money and you don't care about campus life.

Victor

It was a great school, I got to experience new things , such as how to be a host in a radio station and how to act better. The professors are there to help you and always have welcome hands. Some professors are tough on you, but it's because they want you to grasp the skill.

Chamodhi

MCC is a great place to just get your degree and go. There's not much to the place. Our daily ritual is to wake up, get to class, learn, work, rinse and repeat. The availability and dedication of the professors are very much appreciated, however it seems that the materials available seems to be a bit lacking. Overpriced textbooks, the lack of a nurse, the parking spaces, and a poorly handled website for student access leave Middlesex County College to deserve the dull rating of a 3.

Fathima

Extremely affordable, with wonderful caring teachers, and honestly a much better option than going to an expensive university with large class sizes and teachers that can't be bothered to learn your name. I personally believe that the science programs at MCC are stronger than the equivalent courses offered at Rutgers and other nearby universities.

Talia

I feel that Middlesex County College is awesome! The staff and students are kind and everyone is very helpful. The tutoring is great and the professors are always available to help everyone when they have questions. They also respond back to their emails promptly. The safety is also important which the officers are always driving around insuring the safety of the students. The college is a great place and I would recommend anyone to attend here.

Andrew

As a student on a budget, I feel I am getting as big of a return on the dollar as a student can get. The majority of teachers here also teach at nearby Rutgers, TCNJ, NJIT, Rowan, etc.. I even had a math professor who teaches at UPenn, and courses for Graduate level!! And because of this, they conduct the class in the same format, as they do at the local, prestigious 4 year schools. So one doesn't need to ever worry about academic integrity of the courses here. They are the real deal, and you will be academically challenged, and nurtured here. The infrastructure of this campus is strongly accommodating. Campus services, like advisers, financial aid, transfer, career, etc are full of vetted individuals who really give you the time of day, respond to inquires, and also check to make sure you are on pace with your goals. The campus is safe, serene, and everything is within comfortable walking distance of each other. The public transit set up here is effective, and online services like where to email your professor, pay tuition, etc. are really user friendly. I also love the fact, that the campus calendar is full of greatly helpful events, like resume workshops, transfer workshops, even workshops for those who deal with things like depression and substance abuse. Daycare for students with children here, as well. Middlesex County College also maintains strong ties with four year colleges around the area, and host representatives from them to field transfer questions, or even hold Instant Decision days. You never have to worry about lost credits. I have repeatedly seen Columbia and NYU post bulletins to encourage students here to apply, and many have successfully done it. And for those looking for relevant work experience, MCC has very reputable companies in partnership for co-ops, in fields like auto-technology, process technology, and law enforcement. I love it here, and would I ever be given a full, immediate scholarship to go elsewhere, I would decline and still finish my studies here.

Shania

I think it's a great school overall, the campus is pretty and it doesn't take long to get to my classes. The professors seem passionate though I have encountered professors who could not teach well. Other than that, I enjoy the Starbucks on campus and was able to make great friends there too.

Lauren

Overall, Middlesex County College is a great school to be a part of. The professors there are very willing to work with their students and are easy to access. There are numerous clubs and sports that you can join, and you can also create one. There is no on or off campus housing because it is not a dorming school. The students are very friendly and open, and it is easy to start a conversation with someone and make friends. the facilities on campus are free and open to students, and have very good and flexible hours. The advising for scheduling is very good on giving advice for classes for both general and specific needs. There is not a lot to do outside of campus due to its location on a busy highway. There is also very little, if any, drug or alcohol use. The only downfall to this school, which also happens to be a big one, is that there is not much security. Since it is a safe town, it can be overlooked, but anyone can walk on campus that is not suppose to be there because there us no i.d. check or anything like that. Overall, Middlesex County College is a great school to be apart of with very little downfalls.

Justine

I loved my time at MCC. I am currently in my last semester and I have no complaints. For a community college I feel that I definitely got the best experience I could. The student body is great, the professors are very personable and are always available to help.

Middlesex County College fosters an environment that is rich in knowledge and fruitful learning. There is something new to be learned everyday and MCC ensures a holistic development of its students through various educational as well extra-curricular activities. There is education both in and out of the classrooms and that is the best thing about MCC. The campus is peaceful, safe and nurtures the right kind of environment that is needed for academics to take place.

Tamia

It's okay. Some of the staff could be better at proving information to current and potential students. I personally would choose a different community college to go to. The food is okay. MCC recently opened up a Starbucks on campus. Unfortunately it doesn't take the Starbucks Rewards Card, and its more expensive than the average Starbucks. Some of the staff are helpful, however when it comes to things that are out of your control (i.e. an overdue book), they don't listen to the problem.

Joseph

Great way to save money, unfortunately the caliber of education is not where I would want it to be. A lot of the students are unmotivated and many of the adjunct professors should not be allowed to teach a college course. The sciences are strong, but the liberal arts programs are definitely​ in need of improvement.

Muhammed

Not a bad college, but most of the professors are old. They should get more fun activities at the college center between classes for students to keep themselves busy because most of the students have like 2-3 hours between each classes. Students could barely understand most of the professors.

Sarah

Middlesex County College is a great college to attend to save tons of money while still receiving a great education. It is a great school to get you prepared to attend your four year college afterward. There are also so many programs that can be completed without transferring to another college after. Additionally, Middlesex County College has many groups and extra activities that students can partake in to make friends and get more connected. I was on the soccer team which helped me make many friends! Overall, Middlesex county college is the best county college to attend to start your college experience.

Manuela

It's a great school, there are great programs and activities, but there is still room for improvement within the services that they provide. The staff and faculty are often times very nice and understanding, but there are some that aren't. My experience so far has been bittersweet, but I'd like to think that things will get better.

Amya

I think Middlesex Community College is a great college. They have a beautiful campus in which it almost looks like a 5 star university. Not all of the professors are the best but, if you search your professors before you get them you are most likely to enjoy most if not all of your classes. The classroom sizes are usually kind of large (about 24 per class) BUT, that shouldn't stop you from studying and getting your work done like you are supposed to.

Joel

I enjoy going to school at Middlesex County College. The people on campus are friendly and easy to talk to. The teachers are usually available for help in person when needed and always available through email. There are facilities for students to use for recreation and athletics. I am very happy to further my education at this college.

Gabrielle

Middlesex County College is a good county college either for working adults who attend part time, someone who is unsure of what direction they want to go towards, or anyone just looking to save money. Many professors have office hours or are able to email you regarding your academic needs. There are a variety of clubs, though I would be happy with a few more options. Overall, Middlesex County College is good school.

Kayla

Middlesex County College is an accessible school that's welcoming of all people. Professors are well educated, extremely helpful, and nice. The students here are very sweet, accepting of others, here to do work, and ready to learn and grow. The classes are also a lot cheaper. Its smart to use this school as a stepping stone toward your future.

Rualff

Middlesex Country College is an underrated school. Many folks don't attend there because it is a community college but it has so much to offer. That school literally has a little bit of everything. It has sports for the athletic, art for the artistic, science, math, etc. etc. you can find a major in almost anything over at M.C.C. And can't forget about the food they have there. It is amazing. You wanna know why? It's cooked bu the students who are majoring cooking.
