Congratulations are in order for the newly elected president of the Student Government Association. Jorgo Gushi was elected last week. New to the position and excited to get started, Jorgo would like to share the following letter with fellow students:
The secret is out... starting your degree at community college can literally save you (or your parents) thousands and thousands of dollars. Quality, affordable education combined with small class sizes, personal attention and hands-on learning is becoming a trend... and with good reason. When you start your education at community college, you will likely save your future self from student debt.
They say a smile is worth a thousand words and students at Quinsigamond Community College’s Dental Hygiene Clinic, (main campus) are in total agreement. Since the doors opened in 1972 (updated in 1999), dental hygiene and dental assisting students have had the opportunity to administer affordable dental hygiene care to Worcester and the surrounding communities. It's proven to be an invaluable resource to students as well as those seeking lower cost alternatives for dental care.
Congratulations are in order for hundreds and hundreds of you. We know our students are intelligent, driven and determined, but this is impressive. A total of 556 students were named to the Dean’s List and 597 students were named to the Merit List.
The first in his family to join the military, QCC student Kyle Nash has something to be proud of, and something to be happy about! A 2017 graduate of Auburn High School, he joined the Navy Reserves. After running drills in Boot Camp and and taking classes in Apprentice Technical School,
Welcome or welcome back! No matter if you are a new or returning student, you're a student and we are thrilled that you chose QCC! Coming to school for the first time or going back to school after a long time can be an intimidating experience. If that's the way you feel, you came to the right place.
If the thought of trading your flip flops and bathing suits for sweaters and jackets is bumming you out, then don't worry... it's not over yet. However, crisp air and crisp apples are within our sights... and the back to school season is too! Ready or not, it's almost that time of year again.
Maybe you're looking forward to putting your kids on the bus and hitting the books again, or heading to college for the first time. Either way, if you're a new or returning Wyvern, we have the low-down on orientation, school IDs and other ways it pays to be a Wyvern... aside from the top-notch education!
You were cut off in traffic on your way home from work after a stressful day. You finally get home to relax and you find an accident by your dog and a stack of bills by the front door….is it Friday yet?
Time to decompress! Go out and dig in the dirt! In fact, taking a moment to stop and smell the roses might just be good for your health. Studies have shown that gardening can help fight stress better than many other types of stress-reducing activities, not to mention it’s a great form of exercise!

Some of you may already know that this week (June 3-9) is National Pet Appreciation Week! If you're an animal lover, you probably also know the health benefits of being a pet parent. Sure, they don't have jobs or cars to get their own food or drive themselves to the vet. They don't have opposable thumbs to clean up after themselves or open the door when they want to go outside... BUT they DO have so many amazing qualities that none of that seems to matter.
So the next time you're cleaning the litter box or walking your pup in a torrential downpour, just remember the ways they help to improve your life and reduce stress.
