My Life Is Now On Google Calendar and I Am No Longer A Trash Fire

Sometimes at the beginning of the school year, college hands you a paper planner, so you take it and promptly put in a pile of “important” papers that are rotting away near your workspace. While the planner has slowly been squished and crushed to the bottom of the pile (and possibly transformed into a diamond), you’ve been referring to your syllabus for all your important due dates. Except the syllabus has been updated twice now, and the syllabus filenames are super similar so sometimes you mix up which is which, and a snowstorm changed the date of one of your tests, and now you’ve actually got two major projects due on the same day, for different classes. Oh, and quiz tomorrow.

What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?

The truth is, you’re an adult now, and there’s too much going on for you (or anyone) to remember it all. Luckily, free software can help with that.

Join study skills tutor Dan Barry to see how a few well-placed Google Calendar events and alarms can change your life. We will look at basic and advanced features of calendar software, and you will leave knowing how to use it to manage your commitments and deadlines. This workshop is free! Please prepare by creating a Google account if you don’t already have one. Bring your smart device if you have one, and your course syllabi.

Dear MxCC Students,                                          
 
Today, the Board of Regents voted to require all students who participate in on-campus activities this fall to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. That means if you plan on attending class or extracurricular activities in-person, you must first get vaccinated.
 
The vaccines that are currently authorized in the United States are safe, highly effective, and critical to resuming normal operations at our campuses this fall.
 
If you have not already done so, now is the time get vaccinated. With more infectious, more severe variants becoming more and more prevalent, getting your shot is the best way to protect yourself and your family.
 
View the Connecticut Vaccine Portal to find a FREE vaccine provider near you (ct.gov)
 
More information is available on the CSCU website: View Vaccine Requirement FAQs (ct.edu)
 
We will follow up with additional information on how students can document their vaccination status prior to the beginning of the semester.
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Steven Minkler, CEO
Middlesex Community College
