Volume 12 Issue 1

Welcome to Spring Semester 2019!

Welcome to all our new MCC students who are here for the first time, and welcome back to all our returning students. We hope you have a great semester.

Pardon our mess

As you came onto campus for the first time this semester, you may have noticed that it looked like a carnival was being held on the roof of Blair Hall. All of the colorful flags are there for the roofers' safety. Then, if you went inside Blair Hall, some places looked like a dust storm came through. Floors are being sanded to prepare for new, high-gloss, stained concrete. A new roof and new floors are only two of the many improvements that will be made over the next year in Blair Hall. In the meantime, we will continue to provide you with the best educational experience despite the dust! We apologize for the temporary disruption and thank you for hanging in there with us while we upgrade our aging facilities.

New study rooms available in the library

Just a reminder that there are two new study rooms available in the library for student use for collaboration, group study, or SGA club meetings. Each room has an internet-connected computer system. Rooms may be checked out to currently-enrolled students at the circulation desk or by calling the library.

Take a "Day On" to Serve

A previous year's MLK "Day On" meal packaging event at MCC.

In 1994, Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act, designating the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday as a national day of service – a "day on, not a day off." The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community," (AASCU.org/programs/ADP/MLKDay).

This year, MCC, Communities in Schools, 4-H, Youth Leadership Montgomery, and Eckerd are planning an event on Saturday, January 19 starting at 9:00 a.m. at MCC. Volunteers will be packaging 12,000 meals that will distributed to individuals and families in need.

Human Services instructor Amy Frieary is challenging MCC clubs, employees, and board members to join volunteers for this day of service.

"It only takes a few hours, we have a great time, and we're doing something important for our community," Amy said. To sign up for the meal packaging event, contact Amy at friearya2564@montgomery.edu or at 910-898-9709.

Don't Get Scammed By Phishing Emails This Year

Your CATS Lab techs want to remind everyone that phishing attempts are on the rise, so please be diligent in checking the sender's email address before clicking any links. Is the email from a source you recognize and trust? Don't just look at the name, look at the email address. If the address doesn't match the person & place the name indicates, it's a scam. Here's an example:

Never supply your personal credentials based on email instructions. If you are not expecting the email and/or it seems suspicious, please forward it to helpdesk@montgomery.edu so they can check it out for you.

SGA Meetings January 9th at 11 a.m. & 5 p.m. in the Student Lounge.
