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. Quinsigamond Community College is known for small class sizes, personal attention and faculty and staff who are always willing to help.
We know there's more to college than class. Your life outside of class plays a big part of your classroom, college, campus and study experience. Work schedule, kids' schedule and the bus schedule may determine your class and study schedules. So... we want to help make it easy for you by giving you the information you need to get off on the right foot.
Still need books, school supplies or Wyvern fan gear? Here's what you can expect from the QCC Bookstore this week with extended hours:
Wednesday, 9/5 and Thursday, 9/6: 8:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.
Friday, 9/7: 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Saturday, 9/8: 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
If the return to campus is making you hungry, no worries, the Main Cafeteria (Basement, Administration Building) is back to regular hours. Breakfast and lunch hours as well as hours set aside for snacks and beverages:
Breakfast: 7:30 a.m.-10:00 a.m.
Snacks & Beverages: 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.
Lunch: 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
Snacks & Beverages: 2:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m.
If you're more concerned about finding your way around than grabbing a snack, we've got you covered there too. Brand new way-finding signs have been installed around campus, as well as updated maps on our website. Click here to check out maps for all campuses.
So now that you have your student ID, a snack and you know your way around... maybe it's time to join a club? Or go to the movies? Did you know that QCC students can buy discounted movie tickets to Showcase Cinema? That's right... you can check out the new attractions and save money... because you're a Wyvern! Students may purchase up to 4 movie tickets at the Fuller Student Center for just $9 each.
While you're there, ask about the clubs on campus. There's a student newspaper, a music club, Veterans club, pride alliance and more. See the full list here. If we had you at 'saving money', then take a peek at the list of places where your QCC ID will get you student discounts.
News, Alerts, Closings & More
Download the QCC app for access to grades, bus schedules, closings and more. When you have the QCC app, you will get college alerts and notifications right to your phone. We know it's still warm out, but admit it... you want to be the first to know about SNOW DAYS! Seriously though, you can also access the mobile version of the Q as well as your Qmail. So... you ready? You can find the QCC app in the App Store or on Google Play by searching QCC App. It's that simple.
OK, now that you're here and you've got at least one class under your belt... you may be wondering when your first 3 day weekend will come around? Or maybe you're already trying to plan Spring Break... No worries, the academic calendar has all of the important dates for holidays, breaks, intersession, finals and more.
What Else Could There Be?
Quite a bit actually. QCC students have access to tutoring centers, the Fab Lab, the Student Success Center and a host of other resources. See what else is going on and get the student ID schedule for this week here.
Let's have a great year and get smarter... together!
