Affordable courses and textbooks, a diverse student body and impactful instructors—these are just a few of the reasons Anabelle Garcia chose MCC for her general education classes. Before transferring to the University of Nebraska at Omaha, she attended classes at MCC’s South Omaha Campus with hopes of becoming an elementary school teacher.
“The South Omaha Campus is small, so it is easy to find your way around, plus it was close to my home,” she said. “I also liked that friendly people of all ages attended class at the campus. I didn’t just meet people that were my age; I met students right out of high school and 50- to 60-year-olds.” MCC aims to provide students with an affordable, quality education. The professional, well-educated instructors are approachable and helpful.
“Instructors at MCC set rules from the beginning, so you know what to expect,” Garcia stated. “They help you when you ask and even give you their cell phone number so you can reach them easily and not just by email.”
Class sizes at MCC are small allowing student/teacher interaction to flourish. “You don’t have to worry about just being a number,” said Garcia.
