A Day In The Life.

The spring semester is almost half over - and CCM’s ‘spring break’ is right around the corner (can’t wait! Will it be basking in the sun on the sandy beaches in Florida, or hitting the slopes in snowy Utah?). So, what's a typical day like here at CCM?
In the morning, after you fight traffic on Route 10 and find a parking spot (in Lot #6 by the Student Center, if you get to campus early enough; in Lot #1 if you're not on time - and then you have to trudge up 'Cardiac Hill' in blustery wind) you start your day with a steaming hot cup of coffee with your classmates at the Student Center’s Cafe. After enjoying your beverage while discussing the upcoming CCM Art Club's trip to New York City’s famed Metropolitan Museum of Art (a must for any art student), you head out the door of the Student Center, making your way across campus, past the library to the lower level of Emeriti Hall, to your Graphic Design class.

After the always interesting class, you stop by the Cohen Cafe' for a quick pick-me-up snack (and another cup of coffee too, while you're at it). Then, it's on to your next task - Sociology class, with Professor Schennum - in Cohen Hall. 

Your first two classes being over, you take a break in the Student Center's popular Game Room, playing a game of ping-pong, in preparation for the next table tennis tournament. Then it’s off to your next two classes: Art History and Psychology, after which you have an appointment with your Sociology professor during her office hour to discuss your grade on the recent quiz.

You're almost finished for the day, but not before you have a rehearsal for the upcoming CCM performing arts drama "The Elephant Man" with your fellow performers in the Dragonetti Auditorium. After the rehearsal, you’re off again to the library. There you settle down for some serious studying, as you want to maintain your current GPA so that you can get inducted into Phi Theta Kappa, CCM's honor society, this semester. 

That's a pretty full day by most accounts, but you see, at CCM we encourage you to maximize your college experience, both in the classroom and out of it. Life at CCM can be exhilarating. You'll hear a lot of laughter and great conversation, all across campus. County College of Morris  students enjoy belonging to one (or more) of our student clubs, or going to concerts and CCM Titan athletic contests, or playing intramurals with friends, or just hanging out with fellow classmates in the Student Center Lounge.

Going to class is just part (albeit the most important part) of what going to college is all about. College is the time for you to make new friends and meet new people, to explore your interests, and to have a lot of different experiences. At CCM you have endless opportunities to do what interests you. What’s the best advice? Get involved - get the most out your college experience. Like most other CCM students, you'll be glad you did.
