The First Year Experience

Students using computers

"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."
                                   - William Butler Yeats


MVCC strives for excellence, innovation, and high quality service in meeting the unique needs of our students. This page offers information to assist you in planning for a successful start.

MVCC will provide you with a wide variety of career and educational options. We will also provide you with the opportunity to develop and grow, both as a student and as a person. College, however, requires discipline, self-motivation, and hard work.

Students who are successful in college are not only self-motivated and hard working--they also know how to learn. They know that it is important to be organized and they know how to manage their time. They also know who to get help from when they need it.

This information will give you resources to enhance and develop the skills you need to be successful.
