Quinsigamond Community College’s name says it all…COMMUNITY. It’s that community spirit students experienced first-hand at the start of the fall semester. “Getting to know you” events took place across campus, as new and old students alike got to learn about QCC for the first time, or reacquaint themselves with all that makes QCC so unique.

Students were treated to a Welcome Back Breakfast by Student Life the first two days of classes. A Welcome Fair greeted students on the first day of classes, with a Kona ice truck on-hand to help students chill between classes. Welcome tables were also set up throughout the campus on the first few days of classes to give students information they needed such as directions to their classes, as well as offer them a friendly face and a kind word.

On September 6, students had a chance to take a breather from school and enjoy a few moments with a couple of longtime friends of QCC, the Angel Hair Alpacas from North Grafton. Owner Jay Cohen has become a bi-annual staple at the college thanks to the Director of Disability Services, Kristen Proctor who worked to bring the alpacas on campus several years ago. The alpacas are brought in during times when students are feeling anxious, generally during the start of a semester and exam times.

A club fair held on September 18 & 19 brought out hundreds of students to learn about the 25 clubs the college currently offers. If you missed out, check out Student Life and become a part of the vibrant community that helps make QCC a one-of-a-kind place of higher learning.
