Small class sizes allow students and professors to build relationships that positively impact student completion and forge bonds that last throughout careers.

“People often asked me why I didn’t want to go to a larger college or university, I explained that Mid offers the same programs with smaller class sizes. You get much more individual attention and build connections with the professors.”
