This month’s newsletter is all about our students. And with thousands of MTC students returning to campus for Fall semester, it is shaping up to be an exciting month at MTC. Many of our students go on to great employment opportunities here in the Midlands, while others transfer to four-year colleges and universities. In this issue of Here’s the Deal, I invite you to read about students who have met their personal and educational goals at MTC, and the important agreements with other colleges that help our students advance academically. Please join me in welcoming our students to a rewarding and successful Fall Semester.
