|Meet the MCC Ambassadors|
|Kennedy Boliver, Montour, IA:
I chose MCC because it's closer to home and way more affordable.
I like that MCC has smaller classes and you get to know your teachers and classmates better.
I am a freshman at MCC and is an education major. I chose to be an education major because I love kids so that is definitely my favorite!
I grew up in the Marshalltown area. My parents are divorced and I have four siblings. My hobbies are anything in the arts, hanging out with friends and playing volleyball.
My advice for incoming college student is to fill out more scholarship applications! Also going to a smaller college saves money!
I plan to transfer to UNI after my time at MCC.

I chose MCC because it was close to home and MCC feels like home. Also, it really is a good start for me and my family financially.
What I like best about MCC is the welcoming staff. I also like the diversity at MCC.
Marisol is a sophomore earning her AA degree. She plans to transfer to Iowa State and major in psychology with a minor in criminal justice.
What I like most about my major/area of study is being able to learn about others by a simple facial expression and being open-minded.
I have two younger brothers and they are currently attending MHS. I played soccer throughout high school except for my senior year due to the pandemic. This is my favorite hobby.
My advice for college-bound students is to be involved and go for something that you will enjoy later in life! Be open to opportunities.
