The spring semester is now well underway (with Spring Break being just a happy memory) and you’ve settled into a somewhat comfortable, yet busy, routine. So, what's a typical day like at CCM at this juncture?
In the morning, after you navigate the heavy traffic on Route 10 and enter the campus via the College’s new entrance on Route 10. you find a parking spot in Lot #7. You start your day with a nice hot cup of frappucino with your classmates at the LRC’s Starbucks Cafe. After enjoying your beverage while discussing the recent CCM College Transfer Fair (seems like every student there was looking at in-state colleges) you head out the door of the LRC, making your way across campus, to the new Music Technology Center, to attend your piano class.
After the class, you stop by the 'Cohen Cafe' for a quick snack. Then, it's on to your next item on your schedule – Sociology - in DeMare Hall.
Your first two classes being over, you take a break in the Student Center's popular television lounge, playing an intense video game with your fellow students. Then it’s off to your next two classes: Fashion Design and English Comp, after which you have an appointment with your art and design professor during her office hour to discuss the upcoming class project.
Next, you stop by the Student Center’s Information Window to buy two tickets for the Art Club’s upcoming bus trip into NYC to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art with your classmates. You also rent a DVD movie to watch tonight, as it's only a dollar to do so.
You're almost finished for the day, but not before you have softball practice in the H/PE Building, as the fields are still drying out from the recent rainstorms. After the practice in the gym, you head off - once again - to the library. There you settle down for some serious studying, as you want to maintain your 3.5 GPA so that you can get inducted this semester into Phi Theta Kappa, CCM's honor society
That's a pretty full day by all accounts, but you see, at CCM we encourage you to maximize your college experience. Life at the County College of Morris can be exhilarating. You'll hear a lot of laughter and great conversation, all across campus. CCM students enjoy belonging to one (or more) of our student clubs, or going to concerts, or taking trips into New York, or attending CCM Titan athletic contests, or playing intramurals with friends, or just hanging out with classmates in the ever-busy Student Center.
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 meet new people and make new friends, to explore your interests, and to have a lot of different experiences. At CCM you have endless opportunities to do what interests you. So, get involved - get the most out your college experience. Like most other CCM students, you'll be glad you did.
