Mid offers its students greater access to global and cultural experiences through its various on-campus events and Study Abroad trips and experiences. Attending college broadens your horizons through interactions with people from other parts of the world and with diverse backgrounds. You might see several international students in your courses and experience greater diversity on campus, than you would in your hometown. These experiences provide you with skills that are highly-valued in the expanding global-centric job market.
Mid students not only have access to one-on-one academic advising and support from our Mid Mentors, but also because of our smaller class sizes, our students have a better chance to meet and work directly with their instructors and college administrators.
