Mid's Students Tell the College's Story.
What began as a marketing effort has turned into much more. We set out to find real MMCC students who wanted to share their stories and their attitudes about the college—why they chose Mid, what happened while they were enrolled, and what they went on to do after leaving. This was the basis of our "Get More" campaign.
What we found were students who challenged us to remember the real reason that MMCC exists: to serve students in meaningful ways, to compel them, to encourage them to keep going. What we found were students who were more than faces and stories. They are the essence of MMCC. The best testaments to why we exist at all. Their stories were compelling without any spin.
We want you to get to know some of these students too, and we're confident that they'll change how you see MMCC. They embody students who got more from Mid than they expected.
If you would like to share your story for the Get More at Mid campaign,
