What is your overall opinion of this school?

Midlands Technical College gets the job done when it comes to taking basic classes and/or trade classes. I am here because I didn’t have enough money to attend the College of Charleston after graduating from high school, but my goal is to transfer there for the Fall 2020 semester. The academics here at MTC are okay. The classes that I’ve been taking are mostly a review from what I learned in high school, which is frustrating, and the counselors are either misinformed or just don’t care to relay information in a timely and factual fashion. For example, I almost lost my LIFE scholarship due to my counselor failing to tell me the loophole for required credit hours; I was unaware that I had to take an extra class over the summer (which would have been out of pocket, as the scholarship doesn’t cover summer classes) unless I signed up for five classes instead of four for this semester. In the classes I’m taking so far, I get the sense that teaching isn’t the passion of the professors; with the exception of two professors out of the nine that I have had/have currently, none of them seem to enjoy teaching and only seem to be here to spout the information, and then expect us to actually teach ourselves. I know that that is the goal of college, that one may be able to teach themselves, but when it comes to classes like Biology or Computer Science, we need more hands-on instruction. As a technical college, MTC doesn’t offer housing on campus or help with finding housing off campus. The food services here are mostly just nearby fast food restaurants and the concessions in the bookstore, but we do have a cafeteria that offers edible, if not appetizing, food. The campus facilities are old and rundown; although I can tell the janitorial staff strives to keep the place clean, it is clear that there is a need for new equipment and systems. I gave the school a 4/5 simply because the students that attend here get the teaching they need in order to begin their career or move on to higher education. So the school is adequate in its services, but it isn’t a fun or encouraging atmosphere for most. Most of the staff is condescending or downright rude, and the campus and facilities itself could use some updates.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a great college and a good opportunity to get the knowledge of a four year college student in two years. I think the the school environment is a safe campus and a great way to get involved with a variety of different activities inside and outside of school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It was pretty inexpensive. They saved me a lot of money. But they make you take classes that are really unnecessary and a waste of time and money. The teachers really worked with you but some of them have a bad grading system. During Biology lab we did experiment and quizzes but only got graded on quizzes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a recent high school graduate and a first year college student, I would say that Midlands is okay. Because it is a tech school, I think the dynamics are definitely different. People just go to class and mind their business. Overall, I wouldn't say the students are very friendly. I do however, like all of my professors that I have had. They are super helpful and make themselves available to make sure you get the help you need. In this semester, I have 2 professors who even gave us their personal cell phone numbers for us to reach out with any questions!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Midlands Tech was a great school. I genuinely liked going there for classes throughout the week. The website was very easy to use and had a very simplistic design. It was relatively easy to find out information that was unclear. The professors were generally nice and were available in timely manners whenever a student like me needed help. Whether it be through emails, in class, or office hours, the instructors were always there to help. I do miss attending that school but I have now transferred to South Carolina State University and I am so excited to see what they have to offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall experience of Midlands Tech is that some of the instructors need to be willing to help all their students out not just certain ones, also with the financial aid situation they charge so much for their books like it’s crazy and they give you a hard time when you ask for extra assistance with paying for them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Midlands Technical College is a great school whether you are looking to a 2 year degree or a starting college to complete 4 year degree pre-requisites at a cheaper price. The teachers are very knowledgeable, helpful, and understanding. The financial aid staff is very helpful and works pretty quickly. Registering for classes was easy and the campus is beautiful. Class size is not very big. The biggest class I had might of had 30 students (lecture).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Midlands Technical College is just what you would expect from a 2-year year technical/community college, from the crowd to the classes. The professors seem to enjoy what they do and are usually available to assist students when needed outside of classroom hours. Perhaps the best thing about Midlands Technical college is their bridge program to the University of South Carolina, and the many articulation agreements kept with other 4-year universities throughout the state. It is a great choice for anyone who plans to eventually earn a degree from the University of South Carolina but may have trouble paying for 4 full years of university tuition.
