At Quinsigamond Community College we see many smiling faces on campus. These are the smiles of over 7,000 students,working in a smarter way to better their futures through higher education that is affordable, accessible and supportive.

We want to let the world know of the amazing accomplishments of our students, which is why we have begun the newly created, QCC‌ ‌SMILE‌ ‌program‌. The program uses social media to highlight QCC students, and allows them to tell their story and be an inspiration for others who are considering their college options. The purpose is to put the spotlight on QCC students, friendships, relationships, activities, learning, sports, clubs, study groups and all of the other little moments that make QCC the smartest higher education experience in the region. It’s all of these things that build a sense of community and inspire others to be a part of it. This program is a way to inspire those who are thinking about going to college and to have them consider QCC. Additionally, the program is a way to inspire students already at QCC to be more actively engaged.

For students interested in taking part in the QCC SMILE program, below are some ideas on how to be a part of the program:

  • Ask friends to participate with you
  • Attend campus events and take group photos and selfies
  • Send us interesting things you may have learned here
  • Send us a photo of something on campus that made you smile or laugh or think
  • Photos of your favorite place on campus – tell us why
  • Photo of you and your favorite professor (Why does he/she inspire you?)
  • Tell us who inspires you and why

Participating ‌students‌ ‌will‌ also ‌get‌ ‌a‌ ‌professional‌ ‌portrait‌ ‌to‌ ‌use‌ ‌for‌ ‌LinkedIn,‌ ‌their ‌resume‌, ‌or‌ ‌whatever‌ ‌else‌ ‌they ‌choose‌ ‌to‌ ‌use‌ ‌it‌ ‌for‌…who knows, a few students might even become famous!  Students who take part in the QCC SMILE program may be featured in a QCC ad campaign that can range from print advertising, a Hulu spot, a TV or radio commercial, to social media, website and signage.

Already the response from students has been great! Meet Veronica Morson and Alyssa Durham, both Liberal Arts Music majors who are part of the SMILE program. Both students in this dynamic duo came to QCC to save money and get a quality education. Today they are making beautiful music together and fulfilling their dreams. Make sure to look for them in an upcoming QCC promotional spot.

Anyone who is interested in being a part of the QCC SMILE program can reach out to Marketing Manager Gina Cone, at gcone [at]

We hope to see your smiling faces soon so you too and tell the world how QCC is college made smarter.
