You enter college with many differing goals and expectations in regards to your continued education. At Mesalands Community College, we see our role as providing an environment of learning that will allow you to reach those goals and help you develop your potential.
Education at Mesalands Community College is not a one-way process, where you are simply given skills and knowledge. It is an interactive and engaging environment in which the student takes on the responsibility of mastering the application of that knowledge.
Personal development is also a key to college success and at Mesalands Community College this is part of developing the right skills for the future, and about having the college experience. It is about meeting new people, joining clubs, and volunteering for special projects. It’s about having fun and enjoying life as you develop both personally and professionally.
At Mesalands Community College you will learn in a hands-on environment. From working with livestock in the Animal Sciences programs, to climbing to the top of the College’s General Electric 1.5 megawatt ESS wind turbine as part of our Wind Energy Technology program. You will find your place in higher education, through our many certificate and degree programs, that may lead to an exciting new career, personal improvement, or the foundation to achieve a university level degree. As a student you will be engaging fully, eyes and mind wide open, in a truly collaborative educational experience, that can help move you toward professional and personal success.
There is a vibrant energy at Mesalands Community College, one that is supported by a caring community that nurtures respect for individuality and creativity. A community that is dedicated to changing lives through education one student at a time!
As President I look forward to seeing you on campus and sharing in your SUCCESS! Welcome to THE STAMPEDE!
