Anthony Brooks, MCC Student, said, "I'm pretty excited especially to hear what he's going to talk about. He's going to make it easier for people like me going to school for two year degrees and hopefully get out and get better jobs.”

The visit comes about five months after President Obama made a pit stop in Rochester. The White House not saying much about the Biden’s trip scheduled for Wednesday.
