While at MCC, the Dean’s List student was president of the MCC Feminist Collective. She was also a member of the MCC chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year colleges; the Humanities Honor Society; and Psi Beta, the psychology honor society. She was also a staff writer and photographer for Quo Vadis, the school newspaper, and a tutor at the Learning Center.

“My experience at MCC was great,” she said. “The professors were very helpful and supportive. I feel very well prepared for TCNJ.”

While a member of Phi Theta Kappa, she got to know Sitwat Syed, who was the alumni representative to the board last year.

“She helped me see what the role entailed, that I was there to provide the students’ perspective to the board,” Ms. McLean said. “Being able to contribute to MCC after I have left is a wonderful opportunity.”
