It's a great school overall mainly because of its location and academics. The school is located in Minneapolis Downtown and that's basically my favorite place to be. I live in the suburbs so it's super relaxing and incredibly awesome to be able to go to the Minneapolis. Also the the acadamics are good as well. All my classmates in my classes were always helping out each other and working together. That was such a relief to me because to be honest, I have a hard time working alone. So working with others makes a huge difference. MCTC is over all great because it's so far, I've had a great experience emotionally and academically.
I have attended three colleges during my education and MCTC has been my favorite school. At other schools, I have felt like I am just in a larger high school, but here at MCTC I feel like a college student. My Professor's have been extremely helpful in my studies and they actually care about their students and our futures. I would recommend MCTC to anyone.
Minneapolis Community & Tech College, has been an amazing home away from home. I found the campus to be inviting and there was always something to do. I could tell that each of my professors cared about the subjects they were teaching. my class sizes would vary from a small as 13 to as large as 56. however, my teachers always had enough time to meet with me and other students. I am so thankful to MCTC with it's urban campus and diverse professors. I learned so much about making connections with total strangers and getting around on my own. MCTC does not have on campus housing, They do have many resources within the twin cities to ensure that getting an education can be in the forefront of every students mind.
I went to a fancy-pants, expensive, private university and my experience at MCTC is a thousand times better. No, really. A thousand times. That's how awesome this school is.
This is the most diverse campus in Minnesota. I've never been in another environment where I've been able to connect with, work with, listen to, and learn from people with a wide range of perspectives and experiences. Becoming genuinely more comfortable with diversity is not only important from a personal development standpoint but gives you an edge when applying for jobs in the real world where employers are increasingly concerned with diversifying their pool of employees. This isn't something you learn from books and theory, it's a skill that comes naturally from immersing yourself in an environment where you can experience connecting with people different from yourself.
Equity and inclusion are reflected in the support structures in place for students for whom attending college were not a given. There are programs, initiatives, and groups available to students who are immigrants, parents, veterans, struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, re-entering society after being incarcerated, international students, honor students, students with disabilities, students experiencing homelessness, students for whom sexuality and gender are prominent issues in their lives, and so much more.
The faculty aren't at MCTC because they want to climb to the top of the academic ladder or hole up in a lab doing research while their TA's lecture in class. They're there because they are passionate about teaching and this is evident in their level of investment in their students. I've had brilliant professors who genuinely care about me. And the staff give 110%, too. From Student Life to Career Services to the Learning Center, to the library staff, everyone is helpful, responsive, and student-centered.
The main building is nothing to get excited about, but it's undergoing a complete renovation in the next few years and students are helping shape it's future in both function and design. The science building is beautiful. The campus is located on the edge of downtown and sits on the northeast corner of a big park with a pond, a dog park visible from skyways and certain floors of certain buildings, and squirrels who like to come see if you have a snack rather than run from you when you get near. The cafeteria is owned by an alumnus and pays a living wage for its employees. They have a global offering of cuisine, but it would be nice if they had more vegan options as the ones they do have get old after a while.
If I could wave a magic wand and rid the world of stigma against community colleges, I'd Harry Potter that sh*t immediately. My time at MCTC has been phenomenal and simply cannot compare to my time at Hamline. The campus isn't as pretty, we don't have glitzy facilities and meticulously manicured shrubbery, but the heart of the campus is golden.

If I were able to go back in time and tell myself what I now know as if i were a high school senior, I would definately let myself know to take my time and make the best decision for me, not anyone else becuase I'm the one who has to live with the choices i make and that when you get older, your mistakes cost bigger than they would now. I would tell myself to make sure that the college I choose is natinally accredited so that if I would want to transefer schools i could do so easily. I would tell them to start applying for grant and scholarships as soon as possible to get a head start. Go see all the schools I'm looking at and start to narrow down the ones I would want to go to. Then apply to them and once I've been accepted and made my choice i would go and get accustumed to the school. Visit with your new counselors and view your classes and class rooms. I would also suggest joining some clubs and groups ahead of time so you could get to know your new classmates.
Anyone should attend this school but it is best for people who prefer an urban environment with a diverse International Student prescence. It also suits self motivated individuals, meaning those who are determined to accomplish higher levels of knowledge by their own motivation.
My classmates are very diverse. I absolutely love that about MCTC. I grew up in Iowa and the number of minority students were very small. Now I go to school where multiple languages are spoken and I am able to learn first hand about different cultures as opposed to strictly from a classroom.
My school is a convieniant way to attend college and work full time. The classes are flexible and the campus is close to home.
I think that my schools best asset is how well they cater to diverse individuals. They have many campus programs and scholarships that allow anyone to feel welcome and thrive. Being a minority student myself, it's nice to see that other than providing quality education at very affordable prices, I can get involved in many different campus groups and feel like I'm apart of something.
That you shouldn't be so worried about figuring everything out. College is the time you have to figure out what you want to do with your life. There is no other time like it, so enjoy it while you can. You can work for the rest of your life...but your only in college once.
Students who are there for the wrong reasons (ie social playtime, financial aid money, not having a clear idea of what they want to do just in school because they think they should be;) and are thus a distraction to those of us who really want to excel at pursuing our education. The second worst thing is some of the staff that is tenured and not fully engaged and passionate about their position facilitating the acquisition of knowledge. And third, being in the middle of Minneapolis, it can attract some unsavory random characters from around the city
The lack of resources available after regular business hours. As a full time student and employee, it is difficult to take advantage of school resources I pay for and am entitled to.
A wide diversity amoungst educators and students.
A person who should not attend this school is someone who is expecting a 3rd-rate college experience and who is just "going thru the motions" and "getting their credits cheap." This school may be a community college, but be prepared to be challenged intellectually and with great expectations set on you. This school wants you to succeed and to leave their campus a bright student, and they will discipline their students in this great work.
Student and staff diversity. Everyone I've met has come from different backgrounds, are on different educational paths, but are all meeting the same goal - to personally grow and to help develop their community in a positive way. What drew me to MCTC was seeing the pride that students took in their work, knowing that they were on their way to a great, successful career.
Whats unique about this school compared to the other schools i looked at was the ease of the transition from high school into college. It seems almost like 13th grade if I was to describe it. Most of the other schools were so big and a bit intimidating. the school i choose has a very relaxed home feel as if i were still in high school. Also knowing that this school was in an area that made it so convienent to comute to for classes and to travel to work.
