Two peas in a pod…that’s what most people think of when they meet South High School students Milexie Evri and Shannen Jimenez. These seniors are virtually inseparable and are now preparing for their futures through the Early College Program at QCC. This is a program that allows high school students to take college courses for college credit at no cost, while simultaneously attending high school.
Quinsigamond Community College has begun a new chapter in Southbridge with Southbridge Public Schools. Our Southbridge location moved from Optical Drive to a much larger space within Southbridge Middle High School. The strengthened partnership will allow us to become more embedded in the community and bring new possibilities to high school students.
Under the direction and oversight of Dr. Kathy Rentsch, Associate Vice President for Strategic Academic and Workforce Initiatives, as well as the Academic Affairs team, we are pleased to announce that we have executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Southbridge Public Schools. QCC Southbridge will be moving from 5 Optical Drive to Southbridge High School, 132 Torrey Road later this Summer.
Welcome or welcome back, we've missed you! No matter if you are a new or returning student, you're a student and we are thrilled that you're here! 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, have no fear, we are all in it together.
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.
Can you hear that? It's the sound of holiday cheer! Full stomachs and happy kids! That's right everyone, it's that time of year again... when the QCC Police Department trades in their sirens for jingle bells. The annual "Stuff-A-Cruiser" event has been a holiday tradition at Quinsigamond Community College for over 30 years. It's an outdoor gathering with hot chocolate, a cruiser, a blue Santa... and the simple joy of giving! It really is amazing how good it can make you feel to drop off a toy knowing how happy THEY will be when they FINALLY get to unwrap it.
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!
