Going Back to School as an Adult

Jennifer decided to go back to college after her youngest child started school. As a grown adult, she was worried that she was too old to go back to college, and was afraid she wouldn’t fit in with the other students. Instead, she found that she was easily accepted as one of the many older students who decided to return to college to re-start their careers at the Mount.

From Lazy High School Student to Successful College Student

In high school, Nick had typical lazy teenager study habits, but coming to Mount Wachusett Community College helped open his eyes and motivate him to reach his potential.

Getting an Affordable Degree at MWCC

Marymar graduated with her Associates Degree from the Mount, but she isn’t stopping there. She saved thousands of dollars by getting an associate’s degree first and will have less debt when she transfers to a 4-year college.
"Never think that you can’t get the right start to your career at a community college. I was a non-traditional student, going back to college when I was 30 years old, and there was no better place to get the support and confidence that I needed.”

Ricardo Scarello, Computer Information Systems 2007 Graduate
