Other students choose to enroll in specialized programs to prepare for careers in a myriad of organizations and businesses. Our co-curricular activities, which include our clubs and organizations, fitness programs and service learning opportunities, will provide you with a rich holistic environment in which to pursue your goals. In our ever-changing knowledge-based economy, area employers work with us to customize training and educational programs to update incumbent worker’s skills. We have credit-free professional development and enrichment courses for adults and special interest programs for children and teens such as Junior Culinary Camp, Engineer That! and Girls Take Charge. Some area residents come to MCC solely to enjoy our arts, music and other cultural events. And, as part of our sustainability efforts, we even have a Farmers’ Market for local growers and merchants that attracts hundreds of people each week. Learning is a journey that has the potential to satisfy your intellectual curiosity and provide you with new ways of thinking about the world around us – it can fulfill your dreams. It is a journey that doesn’t have an end although you will surely earn your rewards with a certificate or degree if that is your goal. This is your college. It is a place where you will form lasting relationships with a diverse and dedicated group of individuals who share your interest in learning. Faculty, staff, and administrators at the college are always available to help guide you along the path towards your goals. Our primary goal is to help you reach your highest potential.
