Why Are You Here?


Why Here, Why Now?

Students decide to come to College for varied reasons; what are your reasons? What are you passionate about? What excites you most about your major?

Answering these questions can help you determine what you want to ‘get out’ of College; the education, the skills, the experiences. Determine what you want and set goals.

What’s Your Goal?

At MVCC we encourage all students to set SMART goals:
Specific – What do you want to accomplish
Measureable – How will you know if you accomplished it?
Attainable – Can you make it happen, or is it out of reach?
Realistic – Is your goal practical and relevant to your life?
Timely – What is your timeline for accomplishing it?

Stay on Track
Put your goals on paper and post them where you will see them often! Focus on a few tasks at a time to ensure that you are always making progress towards your goals. Discuss your goals with your advisor; they can help you stay on track.

Commit to Your Goals

Commit to completing your goals, and your education.
You’ve made a great choice to pursue your educational path at MVCC! We believe in every student’s potential and responsibility to succeed.
