Honestly if it wasn't for the fact my last two years of high school my family hadn't had blow through my college fund I would have attended Western Michigan (2nd largest campus in the continential U.S. other than Ohio State), I enlisted to ge the G.I. Bill and all MCTC is a stepping stone for me to finish at Tennessee when I move my family away from this area and give my child the chances to succeed that don't exist here anymore.

Never heard anything bad. Some good people at mctc. Just a couple of the advisors and counselors are the big problem.

Honestly, I think that the majority of instructors at MCTC try to do their best because they do like to teach and care about the students. The problem is at the upper Dean level who actually run that college. Any concerns or issues that are brought to them are pushed back down and never addressed and are expected to just go away. That is why people are saying that nothing is ever done about any concerns or issues because it isn't. Each division is in a territorial war with each other over whose program is whose instead of worrying about more important issues such as students and God forbid they work together. Hello people, students are who pays your salary.......Wake up. Another problem is that most of the employees there are state employees which means they are protected, like in a union. They virtually can never get fired unless they do something illegal and then even that is questionable. State employees don't get raises, don't get bonuses, or any type of monetary compensation for doing a good job so why should they? I would say its 50/50 there. 50% care about their job and students and 50% just show up and want to argue all day. Unfortunately those who want to do their job get shot down and bad reps because when they do their job then it causes more work for other people who then get mad. I work at Marshall so I know exactly how this works and I have a close friend that works there and he says it is so miserable. The college itself has lawsuits against it for harassment of employees so I am sure the harassment of students is not too far from the truth. Its unfortunate because i was hoping to get a job there and leave Marshall but there is no way I would do that now. Good luck to the students, I think you will find that most instructors really want to be there, so dont let a few of them ruin your experience....

Touche. I guess I should be more involved with the school. Is the problem the president or the deans?

The president doesn't have clue what goes on at the school. The deans I don't have a problem with, from what i seen they have their hands tied on a lot of issues. I think it's a lack of communication overall. There is few bad apples in staff and that is hard to fix. The problems have went too long and it spreads like a disease and its hard to get back in control. Like the other poster said, they are state employees and it's hard to fire them.

I'm so sick of going there! I pay for school out of pocket because I don't want to owe any debt but I did email the president last week and told him how fed up I was and told him I'm going to Marshall in the fall. I got accepted but it's way cheaper at mt west. My thoughts have gone real hard to go to Marshall now.
I'm sick of people at mt west treating me like I'm stupid when I'm not.. I really hate the people down stairs of the main building.. I'm sorry you hate your job but find a new one or don't take it out in me.. I'm fresh out of high school and just want to get an education. I have a full time job and go to school full time. But I really hate that I sit at a desk and deal with people like them all day and never yell at them on the phone. They are very rude and disrespectful.

If you're going to brag about making the Dean's list 3 whole times and having such an impressive GPA there are a few things you should know. Apostrophes are there for a reason, leaving them out can change the meaning of a word. That includes the use of thats, deans, and its. The word alot is not actually one word but two. A question mark is the proper punctuation for the end of an inquisitive statement. Your is possessive, you're is a contraction for you are. They are not interchangeable. Finally, if you are going to make an argument then you need to be consistent throughout your rant. Do not say in one line that MCTC has college accredited programs with the same standards and then say if it is too difficult one should try a college and see how they do with their standards. There is no consistency there. Just a few tips so you sound like you've earned the accolades you claim to have.
Dean. List. The Dean owns the list. Making it: Dean's list. How consistent are you in you're statements? No better really. Oh, and if you are repeating what another quotes, it's best to add quotation marks, Mr./ Mrs. Consistent.

MCTC needs to do something about the trashy people there.
