Alumni can help students in some exciting and heartfelt new ways

Mesa Market logoAlumni have been asking what they might be able to do as individuals to help MCC. There are a number of new avenues of assistance this fall.

The MCC Career Services Department has launched a Career Closet to provide students the attire needed to make a professional impression during job interviews. New and gently used clothing and accessories can be dropped off at the Career Services front desk in building 36N on the Southern and Dobson campus. For details, call 480-461-7592 or email

Also, the Alumni Association and Career Services are looking for alumni to expand existing Career Services programming offered in the classrooms. Alumni will share their perspectives with students on topics such as university transfer, networking, and working in their profession. Questions can be directed to Stephanie Baldwin in Career Services or Jennifer Biggs in Alumni Relations. To be a part of our Community in the Classroom Initiative, please visit

Assistance today can help a student for a lifetime. Research indicates that students from low-income households are five times more likely to move out of poverty if they earn a college degree.
