Student Engagement

Welcome!


Check out some of our favorite moments that we have shared with our students over the past year! There truly is something for everyone at Meridian Community College, and we cannot wait to help you #FindYourWings. 


A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF STUDENT ENGAGEMENT:

It is our goal to ensure that students involved with Meridian Community College have a fantastic experience. Whether you are in the process of trying to decide what college you want to attend or if you have already committed to becoming an Eagle, MCC has something for you to get involved in. Our effort is to make sure that you have a variety of events to tell stories about in the days ahead. From movie nights in the theater and game nights in the Quave, to the Eagle Experience and Spring Fest, we want MCC to be memorable for you. Take advantage of these opportunities and be sure to remember that you are currently living what will one day be, "the good ole days." Make the most of them.
