Would you like to know how to go to school for free?
How about getting a mentor that can help and guide you through the process at MC?
Or maybe you want to just learn about the resources MC provides. Then I would recommend you keep reading.
If you have that entrepreneurial mindset or want to learn more about it, check out the Hillman Entrepreneurs. “Being exposed to a wide spectrum of opportunities will give us an edge in the professional space and strengthens our personal skills “, said current Hillman Entrepreneur Samir Kabir. Hillman is the place to be “you learn the nitty-gritty things that normal classes would never teach” said Branden Denchfield. The program has so much to offer; did I mention they cover two-thirds of your tuition? Yes, two-thirds. For more information contact the program coordinator Professor Rebecca Razavi.
Achieving the Promise Academy (ATPA)
For my first year students that are “lost in the sauce”, Achieving the Promise Academy would be great for you. ATPA provides you with mentors, workshops, and advising to help you at MC. Every now and then they have fun activities for current and prospective students in the program. Here is the link for more information: http://cms.montgomerycollege.edu/EDU/Department.aspx?id=87390
Boys To Men (BTM)
For the fellas who want to engage in various conversations and learn from one another, Boys To Men (BTM) is the place to be. Boys To Men, and I’m not talking about the singing group, is a mentoring program for African American males. It seeks to foster a greater degree of academic success, student activism, and personal responsibility. This past summer, they went on a college tour/retreat visiting various universities in the DMV. Professor Griffin is the coordinator of this group, but he is currently on his sabbatical and won’t be back until next year. So Professor Fabian will be filling in. http://cms.montgomerycollege.edu/btm/
Peer to Peer Mentoring Program
Also, another great opportunity that’s started this year is MC’s Peer to Peer mentoring program. Students are selected to serve as a resource and a helping hand. Also provide support, encouragement, and information to their mentees. P2P is a college-wide program, so all students have access. They recently held mini mixers on all three campuses. Starting on the September 26th there will be pop up tables if you would like more information.
There are so many opportunities that I didn’t cover, but there are many ways to find out. Go to club fairs, participate in student life activities, do something! We see the slogan “MAKE YOUR MOVE” in different places, but make your move is a daily thing. Applying to MC was just the first step; now you got the push, so make your move in every way you can.
