Back to School with MCC

Meridian, Miss. Meridian Community College hosted its 2nd Annual Back to School with MCC Thursday afternoon. The college highlights some of its career and technical programs.

Students may also come and get everything they need as they prepare to start classes this fall.

The college also gave away five $200 scholarships to students who are registered for the fall semester.

MCC officials say the event also serves as a way for members of the community to learn about the college.

"The main goal for today is to get the information out to the community about what MCC has to offer," said student recruiter Adrian Cross. "We're also hoping to do a last minute bolster to enrollment as well, but the main thing is getting the information out there into the hands of the community members."

Classes at MCC begin Aug. 18. You may still register for classes up until the first week of classes.
