Monroe Community College athletic teams are known as the Tribunes. The name "Tribunes" was selected by popular vote among students and faculty members in the early years of the college. The team mascot is derived from the Roman officials who were defenders of the people. The Tribune name has served MCC well. Over the years, the MCC athletic teams have won numerous regional and national championships. MCC is the home of one of the most successful NJCAA athletic programs in the nation. At almost any time of year, you can hear “Go Tribunes” echoing from the physical education complex and the adjacent athletic fields.
