Rather than tell you what we think about ourselves, read what our students are saying about us…
“I had not been in a pool since the age of 14, and I am now in my fifties, but I really love my Fear No More swim classes at Medgar Evers College. The class is fun, the instructors are great and patient, and they motivate me to become a better swimmer.” - Michella Haliburton
“Attending the Lovegevity WEP class provided the framework I needed. I have worked with a team for several years doing weddings but mostly corporate events. What we were doing as a hobby and kind gestures has now escalated into a business…The class helped to link all components necessary to deliver quality, professional memorable events…I put off attending for 18 months, however, this time, the timing was perfect and the business networking connections are priceless.” - Vanessa Dance
“Thank you very much. I loved the [Dreamweaver] class. You [Instructor Dan Williams] are a phenomenal teacher, so patient and knowledgeable. I really appreciated how you tailored the class to what we wanted to learn, how encouraging you were to everyone, and how you introduced us to Internet resources that will continue to help us learn after the class. I feel so lucky to have had you as a teacher. Thank you again.” – Lori Barrett
“My experience with MEC was very positive, and the teaching staff and administrative services were top notch. The training I received in Medical Coding and Billing was excellent! I will definitely return to MEC for further training. Thank you so much!” — India Chambers
“I am writing to inform you that I was successful in passing the CNA written and clinical test on the first try. Ms. Roesch is very professional and a wonderful teacher. She made me want to come to class to learn. Her techniques and methods are simple and she delivered with such clarity. I owe my success to her... my examiner was asking if I’m in the medical field because I was so confident in what I was doing. When I told her who my teacher is and the school she said she had seen one other student and in fact that student was also in Ms. Roesch’s class. So once again, thanks to Medgar Evers and a very big thanks to Ms. Roesch for putting a beacon in my window where there was none.” — Andrea Wilson
“I finished the course, took the CCS exam, and passed. I am now a Certified Coding Specialist. This course changed my life. I was hired for a better position, at a better rate of pay, in a better working atmosphere...Medgar Evers College changes lives. I know. It changed mine.” — Shirley Beyah, Certified Coding Specialist
“It’s an incredible experience and a pleasure to be associated with Medgar Evers College’s learning process in Real Estate.” - Leroy Allen
“My instructor helped inspire me with his teaching...I was able to take what I learned with his classes and apply them in the design of two websites for which I was compensated.” - Kurt Roderick (Web & Graphic Design student)
”The Non Profit Certificate Program has allowed me to go from viewing my concept for Our Gang Community Works Inc. as a dream to knowing that this is about to happen. Whether it's the in-depth instruction, class role play or the valued information sharing, it has all been incredibly rewarding.” - Dion Ashman, CEO & Executive Director, Our Gang Community Works Inc.
“This financial literacy program at Medgar Evers College was above expectations.” - Fredian Campbell
”Ronnie not only met those expectations, she exceeded them. We learned what happened on a typical day in the life of a publicist, as well as how to write a proper press advisory, and press release, how and when to conduct a press conference, how to format a plan/campaign and so much more.” - Melissa Maltese
“Concerning the website workshop (Website in a Day), I was not expecting I would be able to design a meaningful website after the workshop was over, but at the end of the workshop, I was surprised that the instructor was able to get the best out of me with his teaching ability… With the information that I acquired from that workshop, I was able to design and complete my first website two weeks ago.” – Steven Enigbokan
"I am a CASAC-T after successfully completing my 350 hours of classroom education requirement at Medgar Evers College - a place I highly recommend for the dynamic and interactive teaching sessions to anyone who wants to become a certified alcoholism and substance abuse counselor. I am now doing the required work experience hours at Kingsboro Addiction Treatment Center (ATC)." - Jesus Caicedo.
