  • What our students have to say...

    My MMG experience has been nothing but positive. When I switched into MMG my junior year, I did not know what to expect. Once I started classwork, it became clear to me that the faculty did not view their students as cold statistics, but instead as thinking and feeling humans like themselves. My advisors were suddenly in the lab with me, providing me pointers on how to culture bacteria and run tests on microbes to determine their properties. It was all very exciting and it ultimately played a large part in shaping the trajectory of my academic pursuits and beyond. To any first-year students a little unsure where to turn but who seek a rewarding college experience with fun, passionate, and extremely intelligent people, I say to you… go MMG!
