The choice of coupons available, which are provided by the shows themselves, change regularly so stop by periodically to see what's available.
All County College of Morris students must have their CCM student identification card in their possession while on campus - failure to show a valid ID card when requested will result in a ticket and a $25 fine. ID cards are provided to tuition-paid students (full-time and part-time).
The photo ID card entitles the bearer to all benefits and privileges the college provides, including: library use, discounts to campus events, voting privileges in student elections, CCM parking decal, entrance to CCM sporting events, use of various athletic facilities (e.g. swimming pool, fitness center and weight room) and other campus life programs. This card must be revalidated with a sticker each semester; this can be done at the Campus Life Information Window upon proof of tuition payment.
A fee is charged to replace student identification cards: $5 for the first replacement, $15 for the next. All students must have their currently valid student ID cards in their possession while on the CCM campus.
The Office of Campus Life's Information Window's staff provides many services to the campus community: answering questions, giving directions, selling tickets, renting videos, issuing Game Room equipment, validating and providing CCM student identification cards, validating items for bulletin board posting, and much more. Information about CCM's campus life programs, its many student clubs and organizations, and how students can get involved in our many activities may be obtained at the Information Window.
The Student Community Center is for enjoyment and relaxation by the college community. Sit back, read the newspaper, study, chat/text with friends or just relax by the fireplace. Presentations and other special programs are periodically staged in the SCC lounge.
The Student Center also has a TV Lounge. This has a HD TV with DirecTV satellite programming. Various channels (ESPN, USA, Food Network, Comedy Central, MSNBC, CNN . . .) are programmed throughout the day, so stop by and enjoy a break from the rigors of your class work. The playing of video games in the TV Lounge is a very popular option as well.
In addition, there are other student lounges located on campus: the Sheffield Hall lounge (SH 200), also referred to as the "Study Lounge", is located across from the cafeteria in Cohen Hall, and the quiet student lounge is located in DeMare Hall, near the Rutgers University office. Between the RU office and the DeMare Hall lounge is a computer center/study room for student use.
Museum Membership Cards
The Office of Campus Life holds a membership to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Students wishing to gain free admission to it must come to the Information Window with their valid CCM student identification card. Membership cards are loaned out on a first come, first served basis for a one day or one weekend period.
This service is also available to other members of the CCM community: staff, faculty members and CCM alumni (with valid identification).
CCM is one of only a handful of educational istitutions to have a planetarium, the Madeline D. and Joseph J. Longo Planetarium and digital theater.
On specified Fridays and Saturdays throughout the year, the Planetarium (located in Cohen Hall) presents programs for the public. Reservations for the shows can be made through the Office of Campus Life by calling the Planetarium Reservationist at 973-328-5076, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
The CLU: Campus Life Update is published by the Office of Campus Life every other Wednesday during the academic year (Sept. - May) and once during the summer sessions.
The CLU is designed to keep the campus community "CLUed into" what is happening at CCM. It features information about upcoming trips, student club and organization activities, information about upcoming performing arts productions, the CCM Titan athletic schedule, and much more. Check it out.
The Youngtown Edition, CCM’s official student newspaper, is published every other Wednesday during the fall and spring semesters. It also publishes a special ‘New Student Orientation’ issue during the summer. It is published online and is also distributed throughout campus. The Youngtown Edition, which has been published every semester since 1968, has won more awards from the New Jersey Press Association in the last 10 years than any other two-or four-year college newspaper in the state.
The CCM Student Handbook is compiled and published online on a semester-by-semester basis by the Office of Campus Life. The handbook contains many of the college’s regulations as they pertain to students and is a resource for the colleges services and offices. Students are encouraged to use it for a quick and easy reference as needed. This publication is only available online.
The Student/Community Center is the "living room" of the CCM campus. The SCC houses the college bookstore along with enrollment services offices (Admissions, Financial Aid, Records & Registration, ), and the Bursar's Office (pay your CCM bills and parking fines here) .
Also located in the Student Center are the Office of Campus Life, student clubs offices, student lounges (one with a "fireplace"), a television/video gaming lounge, the Vice President for Student Development and Enrollment Management office, a food service area and cafeteria, Counseling Services, Transfer Services, Academic Advisement and the Women's Center. The Dragonetti Auditorium, located on the lower level of the Student Center, is the primary performing arts and special events venue at CCM.
Student Organization Offices
CCM has over forty-five recognized student organizations. The Student Government Association, Student Activities Programming Board (SAPB), Phi Theta Kappa (CCM's honor society), the Youngtown Edition (CCM's student newspaper), New Social Engine, and the CCM Ambassadors have their own offices in the Student Center (lower level). There is a general club and organization area, housing facilities for CCM's other clubs, located in the lower level of the Student Center (Room SCC 125).
Student leaders often hold office hours, so stop by the club offices, meet your campus student leaders and get involved. It will make your CCM career more enjoyable and productive (and it will look good on your resume).
Tickets for various trips and on-campus events may be purchased (cash or check only - sorry, no credit cards) by students at the Information Window prior to the event. This includes tickets for the trips sponsored by the Campus Life Office (Broadway show trips, excursions into New York City: museums, the Bronx Zoo, holiday shows, sporting events), and field trips co-sponsored by academic departments and the Campus Life Office (e.g. Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island, Wall Street, Gettysburg, Washington D.C., NYC museums).

For certain bus excursions, a limited number of tickets may be purchased upon presentation of a valid CCM ID card and another form of identification. These student tickets are usually discounted over the actual cost of the show ticket, bus, etc. The student must show the valid CCM ID card when using the discounted ticket.
All trip participants (student, guests, staff, faculty, alumni . . .) must complete and sign the CCM Event Participant's Hold Harmless Form prior to the departure of the trip.
