The fall semester is now well underway and you’re settling 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 on Route 10 and Center Grove Road and find a parking spot (usually in Lot #1 which has the most open parking spaces) you start your day with a nice hot cup of tea with your classmates at the Student Center’s Cafe. After enjoying your beverage while discussing the recent CCM Job Fair (seems like every student was there looking for a part-time job) you head out the door of the Student Center, making your way across campus, to Sheffield Hall, to your Biology class.
After the class, you stop by the 'Cohen Cafe' for a snack. Then, it's on to your next item on your schedule - Sociology class, with Professor Weyer - in DeMare Hall.
Your first two classes being over, you take a break in the Student Center's popular television lounge, playing an intense game with your fellow students. Then it’s off to your next two classes: Design and English Comp, after which you have an appointment with your design professor during her office hour to discuss the upcoming class project.
After that, you stop by the Student Center’s Information Window to buy two tickets for the upcoming CCM bus trip into NYC to see the 'Christmas Spectacular' at Radio City Music Hall with your fellow students. You also rent a DVD movie from Campus Life to watch tonight, as it's only a dollar to do so.
You're almost finished for the day, but not before you have basketball practice in the newly refurbished H/PE Building. After the practice in the gym, you head off - once again - to the library. There you settle down for some really 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 and CCM Titan athletic contests, or playing intramurals with friends, or just hanging out with classmates in the 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.
