“I remember how difficult it was coming back to school. Throughout my time at MCC, I have had great instructors that have made this transition a lot easier. Julie Freelove has been a huge support throughout my career at MCC. She is always available and always willing to give advice to her students. MCC gave me the tools to start a new career in AOM. I will be graduating in December with an AAS, and I'm very thankful for all the support that I got from MCC and my instructors to complete assignments and giving me test accommodations. I know that if I could do it, anyone can. Thank you, Julie, for all your support and advice! ”
