I’m thrilled to welcome you to Manchester Community College. Since 1945, students have enrolled here to follow their educational path toward a new or improved career. We’re celebrating our 75th anniversary in 2020, so this is a milestone for the college. MCC is here to be your milestone — as you work toward a certificate or degree to go straight into the workforce or transfer to a four-year school. The credential you earn here will help you build toward your future goals.
MCC advisors, tutors, professors, staff and administrators come to work every day to help you succeed. Please know that we are here to support you on your journey. Familiarize yourself with the Learning Commons where the Academic Success Center advisors and library are housed. You can also access the library’s resources online if you are off-campus or taking an online or hybrid course.
Even though academics are at the core of your MCC experience, stop by the Club Fair at the beginning of the semester to find out about student activities and clubs you might enjoy. Many MCC students are part-time, yet still join a club linked to their major (like the HVAC, Medical Assistant or Accounting Club), or explore the Student Senate, Culture Exchange or Drama Club. MCC activities also extend beyond the campus. I urge you to meet with MCC’s Career and Transfer Advisor to learn about internships, job co-ops and service-learning opportunities available in Manchester and beyond.
I look forward to meeting you while you’re here. Thank you for becoming part of the MCC community.
Dr. Brian Bicknell Interim President, Manchester Community College
