Message from the Editor
Greetings students!

This is the first edition of the Open Door Newsletter's October Issue. Now that the fall semester is well on its way, I hope you are enjoying your classes and feeling that you are part of the QCC family.

I hope you are taking advantage of all of the resources available to you at the college and that you are not afraid to ask for help. Your instructors want you to succeed. So if you are struggling in a class, don’t be afraid to reach out to them and seek their advice.

I hope you enjoy it!

At QCC, student success is our #1 priority. QCC is YOUR school, YOUR experience, YOUR future, YOUR community. That’s why we are currently seeking students who want to share their story (and smiling face) to inspire others who are ready to make a change. Tell us who you are, why you chose QCC and why it’s the smarter choice for college. We want to hear YOUR QCC story so that we can share it with others. 

When you join the QCC influencer program you will become a face of QCC, a leader, and motivator to help your classmates feel more connected to this diverse community of hard-working students. Share your QCC story with selfies, quotes, quick videos of what you’re doing, and how your QCC journey will better your life. We will share your submissions on our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram pages. You may also be featured in television and radio commercials on Hulu, Charter, Pandora and Spotify. Many of you will become a public face of Quinsigamond Community College. 

Your story could be the spark that ignites change in someone else’s journey. The final push to stop thinking and start doing. Sounds good, right?
