Did you know that the Germantown Campus has been here for 40 years? Yup, this month Germantown is celebrating its 40th anniversary!

To commemorate, there will be a Germantown Community Day on March 30th from noon to four in the afternoon. MC says they want to celebrate this monumental occasion “that has supported us from the beginning.”

There will be free activities, giveaways and prizes! Activities include, live entertainment, a petting zoo, bungee basketball inflatable and more! Meanwhile, prizes such as fitbits, gift cards and a special grand prize!

There will also be local food vendors, like Chick-Fil-A, and Firehouse subs. The event is sponsored by Germantown businesses and organizations as well.

This is a true exhibit of how wonderful the relationship between Germantown and MC really is. It is a time for the community to all come together and revel in the greatness that is Montgomery College and its community.

Community is so important in life so come on out and help the Raptor community celebrate!

I am a 19-year-old lifelong resident of Damascus, Maryland. I am in my 3rd semester as a part-time student at MC. I plan on getting my Associates Degree in the next couple of years and then transferring to the University of Maryland at the Universities at Shady Grove (health permitting).

MC has been my academic home for the past year and I could not be happier. I started off my collegiate experience at Salisbury University in the fall of 2015, but due to my Chronic Lyme Disease, I was forced to drop out. I thought my academic life was over, as I was too ill to handle a full course-load, but that is when I discovered the part-time option at MC. MC gave the choice to take as many, or as few classes as I wanted, and because of this, I am now back on track to getting my degree. MC also offered me disability support services to further assist me in accomplishing my dreams.

I hope that this blog can help other students like me to see that even though they may not be taking the “traditional” route towards higher education, MC offers load of opportunities that will get us where we want to go. Whether you aren’t sure where you want to end up in life, or have another obstacle, like a chronic illness or disability, you can still reach for the stars and accomplish anything they want to here at MC.
