Welcome to the official blog of Middlesex Community College in Middletown, CT. Our mission is simple….

We are the college of our community.

It’s in that spirit that we run this blog as an extension of that mission to help students– ours or others– to succeed academically, have access to various resources and tips about college life and work, and to bring to light various events, issues, and important topics that affect our community. We post everything we publish on FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest, but the easiest way to stay in touch with us is to subscribe to our blog.

We’re always looking for new and interesting content to share, so if you are a faculty or student in this college (or in our surrounding community) we’d love to hear what you have to say. Please email Randi Plake at rplake@mxcc.edu with your ideas.
