The spring semester is almost over and finals are right around the corner- and you know what that means: study, study, study! So, what's a typical day like at CCM during the end 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') you start your day with a steaming hot cup of tea with your classmates at the SCC Cafe. After enjoying your beverage while discussing the recent CCM musical "Company" (what a great show featuring your fellow CCM students), you head out the door of the Student Center, making your way across campus, past the soon to be reopened library to the lower level of Sheffield Hall, to your Chemistry class.
After the intense chem lab, you stop by Cohen Hall’s 'B Cafe' for a quick pick-me-up snack (and another cup of tea too, while you're at it). Then, it's on to your next task - Sociology class , with Professor Weyer - in DeMare Hall.
Your first two classes being over, you take a break in the Student Center's popular TV Lounge, playing a game of Madden 25, in preparation for the upcoming video tournament. Then it’s off to your next two classes: Journalism and Philosophy, after which you have an appointment with your History professor during her office hour to discuss your somewhat unexpected grade on your last quiz.
You're almost finished for the day, but not before you have a rehearsal for the upcoming CCM Shakespeare and Company's "Makubesu" (Macbeth, set in Medieval Japan) with your fellow performers 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 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.
