It is important for students to connect to the college, whether through class groups or more structured clubs and organizations. The more active students are in college life, the more students persist toward graduation. Involvement also helps in later life and career activities.
Participate in the clubs, organizations and activities sponsored by MTC. Become a member, or better still, be a student leader.
MTC offers over 20 student organizations, honors activities and campus/community involvement options just for you. These activities are designed for college students.
Visit the Student Life webpage for more information.
