SGA at MWCC

By Andrew Hoenig

 

Gardner, Mass. – The Student Government Association (SGA) at the Mount is an elected group of students who represent the students’ interests to the college’s administration.

Many of the students answered these three words on at least one of three questions, “I don’t know”. In fact, 90% of the students who participated in the survey had little to no knowledge on what the SGA does for students and the school, what clubs it has organized on campus, and what impact it has on the students themselves directly. read more


Ring in the New

By President Daniel M. Asquino

We ring in the new year at Mount Wachusett Community College not with the customary noisemakers of bells and horns, but with drills, hammers and saws as construction continues on our Gardner campus.

Your patience as you make your way to classrooms and offices during the modernization of our 45-year-old facility is greatly appreciated. In the coming months, renovations to our Advising Center, Commons Area, Theatre at the Mount, and main entrance will be unveiled, followed later this year by the opening of our new science and technology building. read more
