The fall semester is over - and you know what that means: final exams! So, what's a typical day like at CCM during this most hectic time of the semester?
In the morning, after you fight traffic on Route 10 and find a parking spot (in Lot #6 by the Student Center, if you're really lucky; Lot #1 if you're not - and then you have to climb 'Cardiac Hill' in the blustery wind) you start your day with a cup of coffee with your classmates at the Student Center cafeteria. After enjoying your hot beverage while discussing your upcoming plans for winter break, you head out the door of the Student Center, making your way across campus, past the Learning Resource Center to the lower level of Sheffield Hall, to your Chemistry final.
After that intense chem exam, you stop by the 'LRC Cafe' for a quick pick-me-up snack (and another cup of Starbucks coffee too, while you're at it). Then, it's on to your next task - the Sociology final, with Professor Weyer - in DeMare Hall.
With your first two exams being over, you take a break in the Student Center's popular Game Room, playing a game of ping-pong, in order to take a mental break from all of that studying. After vanquishing your worthy opponent (best two-out-of-three), it’s off to your study group review session, to prep for your Philosophy phinal, after which you have an appointment with your English Comp professor during her office hour to discuss your unexpected grade on your end-of-semester paper.
You're almost finished for the day, but not before you have a rehearsal for the upcoming CCM "Dance Theatre Showcase" performance with your fellow dancers in the Dragonetti Auditorium. After the rehearsal, 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 next 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 and CCM Titan athletic contests, or playing intramurals with friends, or just hanging out with classmates in front of the Student Center’s fireplace.
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 the County College of Morris 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.
