Quote from the President

“It is a pleasure to lead an institution that is viewed as the number 1 resource for county residents. In addition to our credit and non-credit academic programs, we host community and governmental forums, provide emergency sheltering, offer child care and summer camps, art and cultural programs in service to thousands every year. I am proud that so many of our students are engaged in clinical, civic and social service learning in addition to our internship and cooperative education programs."

Interesting Facts

  • Crabiel Hall, opened in January 2011, is the newest campus building providing state-of-the-art classrooms, office space, computer labs and a demonstration kitchen; it recently received a LEED® Silver rating and Project of Distinction Award for the construction.
  • Our nearly 200-acre site provides a four-year campus feel with beautiful, spacious grounds, including an ecological park, great facilities and plenty of parking lots for our 13,000 credit and 10,000 noncredit students.
  • The College’s student-to-faculty ratio is 19 to 1, so students aren’t just another number. They enjoy personal attention in classes taught by dedicated professors—not teaching assistants.
  • Middlesex County College is a better value with low tuition, transfer agreements to complete a four-year degree and more than 100 private scholarships for students.
