Parents and Mentors

MEET Jamie (Caitlyn’s mom)

My daughter, Caitlyn, wants to be a nurse. We visited other colleges but Caitlyn was won over by MATC’s healthcare technology. We developed a budget and realized she could graduate debt-free. She plans to complete her associate degree and later work as a nurse while she pursues a bachelor’s degree. The 92 percent job placement rate within six months is also reassuring.

Resources like the on-site health clinic and academic advising are very helpful. The learning labs and instructors give her plenty of support,too. I also like that Caitlyn can stay close to home and that I could join her for orientation. I’m really proud of Caitlyn’s decision to attend Madison College.

Choosing Madison College is a big step for parents, as well as students. As a parent, you play a major role in your son’s or daughter's journey. We understand that you may also have questions and concerns.

A mentor is anyone who provides guidance to students by sharing their own experiences and findings. A mentor can be an aunt or uncle, friend, grandparent, employer or a high school guidance counselor. Your encouragement and insights go a long way...
