The Big Reveal

I hope everyone is having a great first day of Spring 2022! As we start a new semester, we also have another “beginning” today to announce.

Check out McDowell Tech on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to see the announcement about the college’s new nickname. Or, just use the first video link to watch the reveal video.

Gwen also has T-shirts on sale in the MTCC Bookstore. Our new mascot, “Mac,” stopped by to pick one up this morning!  Get yours before they sell out!
Looking forward to a spectacular 2022 here at the Tech!
See you around campus soon.
