Ease Into College at QCC with New Student Orientation

July, 2017
  • New Student Orientation  postcard

At Quinsigamond Community College our faculty and staff are here to help provide new students with a smooth transition from their previous environment to QCC, by offering a New Student Orientation and Student Services Fair in late August. This is an engaging and fun way new students can learn about their college community and the services available to them.

QCC has designed the New Student Orientation to offer students new to QCC a way in which they can connect with staff, faculty and peers prior to the start of college.  Students will learn about and connect with the different services offered at QCC, with the goal of enhancing their academic success and overall experience at the college.

There will be breakout sessions available during this timeframe that will give students’ added strategies for success. Samples of breakout sessions include:

  • Balancing College and Child Care
  • How to Build Your Resume for Your Dream Job while in College
  • Learning Styles and Creating a Study Plan for your Specific Learning Style.

In addition to the New Student Orientation, there will also be a Student Services Fair that takes place at the end of each New Student Orientation held at the Worcester campus location. The Student Services Fair allows students to connect with all the resources they will need to help them succeed at QCC.
