MCC Launches 50th Birthday Website

Manchester, CT- (January 13, 2014)…Manchester Community College has been serving the citizens and communities of eastern Connecticut for 50 years. In honor of MCC’s 50th birthday, a new website has been launched to commemorate MCC 50 years of excellence.

Features of this new mini-site include: a brief historical background; a collection of ‘oral histories’ featuring over 100 video interviews of past and present faculty, staff, student and community members sharing their MCC experiences; and a list of signature MCC events tied to the 50th celebrations.

Alumni, students, faculty, staff, community members and friends of the college are invited to add an MCC story – in text, video or audio formats – by visiting http://www.manchestercc.edu/50/.

Students of any age who possess the desire to pursue higher education are welcome at Manchester Community College. MCC is proud of its academic excellence, new facilities, flexible schedules, small classes, low tuition and faculty with both academic and “real world” credentials. The college offers over 60 programs, transfer options, financial aid and scholarships, as well as access to baccalaureate degrees through guaranteed admissions programs with several universities. The main, park-like campus, which is easily accessible from I-84, is also the home of Great Path Academy, a middle college high school, serving grades 9-12. The college’s second location, the Manchester Community College Arts and Education Center, opened in downtown Manchester in 2012. MCC takes pride in the quality of programs and the many ways we’ve helped students, families, businesses and community grow over the past five decades. Fifty Years Together. For Learning. For Life
