Continue Your Bachelor's Degree at Manchester Community College (MCC)

If you missed the public Info Session at MCC on April 26, don't worry.   We want you to know that if you have an associate's degree, or 60 or more prior credits and you live near Manchester, you can continue taking courses from Eastern Connecticut State University at MCC that will count toward your bachelor's degree.  Eastern is offering two "Fast Track" programs at MCC.   "Fast Track" courses are offered in 7-week modules, two courses per semester.


The first program leads to the Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree with a Major Concentration in Human Services. This program has been ongoing for three years.   Courses are offered once a week on Saturdays.  The second program is new and  leads toward the BGS degree with a Major Concentration in Management.  Courses are offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  This program is available this coming Fall 2011.


To see how you can graduate through one of these "Fast Track" programs, call to speak to an Eastern advisor at (860) 465-0206.  Ask for Joanne or George.


P.S.  Most "Fast Track" students are able to finish their bachelor's degree in two years!

Why Do You Love Eastern?

In attending local functions, it is evident that Eastern Connecticut State University is a beloved college.  Eastern students and alumni are very proud of their school and aren't shy in saying why.  When we asked them why they love Eastern, this is what they said.

"I really like the location of the school.  You can walk five minutes in either direction, and you're close to beautiful scenery and great food."  - Ross (Class of 2012)

"The teachers value the well-being of their students.  You can talk to your advisors and professors." 
- AJ (Class of 2012)

"I love Eastern because the classes are small, so you can form relationships with your professors."
 - Stephanie (Class of 2013)

"There are a lot of reasons why I love Eastern.  The campus is easy to get to know, and there's always something to do whether it's an RA program or campus activity.  I feel like I'm constantly learning."
- Lauren (Class of 2011)

"I love the professors because you get to know them individually.  I like that it's a small university. You can't get lost because you know where your buildings are.  Everything is very simple."
-Jasmine (Class of 2012)

"I love Eastern because it's a very friendly community on campus.  The professors, especially in biology, are very friendly.  My advisor is helping me get where I want to go."
-Bill (Class of 2013)

"Having spent time in a university atmosphere, Eastern is not overwhelming where you'd get lost.  You have a sense of identity and not just being 'another student'."
-Gloria (Class of 2007)

Thank you, everyone, for telling us why you love Eastern.  If you love Eastern too, tell us why in the comment box.  We love hearing from you.
