This collage is one of the best in the area!!! Lot of great kids go there for classes!! The welding program is one of the best in the west side of the state!! Been in the program and had a lot of job offers when done. Dave is a great guy that teaches the classes. He was great!! The agtech program out there is one of the only in the area. You enroll in locally but you are taking Michigan State University classes but without paying the big money down at East Lansing Michigan. Wish that they had this when I was younger. The also have an ice renk to play on too. Also a gym and a swimming pool there too!!!

I'm rating the financial aid office. Terrible service, rude and unhelpful. They never have a correct answer for me and are all over the place not knowing how to solve and simple problem. They messed up financial aid and said I had a refund for months and turns out I never had a refund in the first place. They also weren't able to accommodate to help me solve a problem, one person was particularly rude to me via telephone when I told her my job restricts me from a face to face meeting and she told me I should be more flexible instead of them. I love this college, its other staff and professors but the student services/financial aid office has made my semesters here a nightmare and I'm not impressed.
