Being a college student requires a lot; time, money, effort, dedication, just to name a few. Every little inconveniences might add to our already stressful life. Knowing where and how to find things can really help us not only save time, but also save us from making a lot of mistakes… and unnecessary steps.

Montgomery College offers so many tools to help its students succeed. From doing online research to finding places to print, the college provides all these resources for our convenience.

1.) For research purposes:

If you’re already  a student at MC and have written at least one research paper, you may have already heard your professor mention about the MC Library Catalog (link below). Looking for an article? A journal report? You’re in luck because the school lets you access these journals for free (most websites charge to allow access, so this is one thing we can take advantage of)! The school website itself offers substantial information about the college and the many different programs students can benefit from.

Ray Ann

My name is Ray Ann. I grew up wanting to be a lot of things. Being a lot older now, I realize you never really grow out of those dreams.

I’m 23 years old, barely 5 ft. tall and often mistaken as a high school student. But you know what they say — good things come in small packages. Despite me being a little vertically challenged, I’m a huge basketball fan. I love fast cars and fast…food. I love the color pink and my friends’ sense of humor. I aspire to be the realistic half of my favorite female fiction characters: to be bold and fearless like Nikita, witty, intelligent and fashionable like Blair Waldorf and sweet and sassy like Cher Horowitz.

Being a blogger means a lot of things. We write about anything and everything, including our own lives. We can choose to be private or be an open book. But I hope to share only meaningful and helpful things to anyone who reads my blogs. Montgomery College will always be a big part of my life as it gave me an opportunity to find myself and discover the things I love and gave me all the more reason to be myself.

Let’s believe in each other.

  1. Thanks for pointing out these resources MC has to offer students. Often, great resources are overlooked because nobody knows about them. This is super help to many students, especially the first one. I don’t know if student service hours must be MC related however, VisArts in Rockville Town Center gives high school students SSL hours. Volunteerism is only 2 hour intervals and I see many students bring their reading at the same time.
