Success Video Library

At Middlesex Community College, we want to see every individual be successful and achieve his or her goals. Many students – both new and returning – need some additional support in various academic and personal areas. The videos below provide “how to” information on being a successful student, practicing sound financial behaviors, writing a resume and interviewing well, and using social media. New videos will be added over time. We encourage you to watch the videos as you need them and learn some tips that will help you strive for success.

Many of the videos below are available only to CT Community College students. If you are a student and are off campus, you can view the videos below by first logging into myCommnet with your Net ID and password and then refreshing this page. If you are not logged in, you will be prompted to do so in the pop-up video windows. Note: These videos will not play on Internet Explorer if you are off campus.
