Community colleges are often hailed as the next generation of post-secondary education.
But that’s not the case at the Mott Community College in Edmonds, Wash.
The school has become one of the most expensive in the country, as it costs nearly $12,000 a year to attend.
The campus has been the target of multiple public relations campaigns over the past few years.
This week, the MCC announced it had received a $3 million grant to improve its communications.
But what exactly has MCC been spending its money on?
What is the school’s mission, and why is it spending so much on its PR team?
Find out in this exclusive Q&A with The Wall St. Journal.

This is part of a $2.8 million grant the MCO received last year from the American Institutes for Research.
The money will be used to improve communications at the school.
“We are committed to improving communication,” Mott spokeswoman Jessica Moore told the Post.
“We are trying to improve the quality of communication.”
The school’s communication is often focused on what the students need to do to succeed, she said.
In addition to PR campaigns, the school has also created an online learning portal called the Edmonds College Learning Center.
Students can use the portal to study online, take classes online, and work with faculty.
While the MBC is in the process of raising money for a new communications program, it’s also using its grant money to improve communication at the campus.
Mott students will get an email about the new project every Friday.
This is one of many reasons the school, which opened in 1990, is so expensive.
One reason is the cost of tuition.
Edmonds Community College has been around for more than 50 years.
In 2011, the state of Washington passed a law requiring the school to spend at least half its operating budget on education.
According to The Wall Post, Edmonds had a $6.5 million budget deficit in 2016.
The state has been asking the school for additional money to help cover its costs.
The school also spent more than $2 million in 2016 on the campus PR campaign, according the Post, which included billboards, radio and TV ads, and online advertisements.
Many of the students who live on campus also work for MCC, and it’s common for them to spend their time doing research or working at the student center, according a former Edmonds student who asked not to be named because she did not want to get involved in the school-wide PR campaign.
It was only last year that the school began spending more on its community college marketing campaign.
This year, the college announced it would spend $2,500 on community college outreach.
Some students are not happy with the increased expenses, including the former student who was part of the school PR campaign and is now a student at another MCC.
“This is not what I wanted to do with the MCCC,” the former MCC student told the Washington Post, describing the school marketing campaign as a “disgrace” to students and the community.
“There are a lot of people that have had their lives impacted by this, and I’m not one of them.
We are a very small community college.
The majority of our students come from out of state, but the majority of us come from the state.
I’m not going to give them any more money.”
The former student said she plans to stay on the school campus until MCC graduates its first student in 2020.
