The Need to Change

As our nation continues to make the changes needed to boost the economy, create new jobs, improve our schools, and bring peace to the world, we all personally hope to change for the better. But as much as we may wish for change, change is only possible when it is coupled with understanding, commitment and hard work.

It has been nearly 40 years since Middlesex Community College was founded. Since that time, we built two permanent campuses and watched thousands of students come and go on their way to making career and life changes. 

Middlesex is constantly changing to meet the needs of the communities it serves. Today, in addition to our traditional daytime classes offered on campus, hundreds of courses are offered in the evening and online. Our new Weekend College, with its accelerated courses and programs, also helps students more easily achieve their goals at a time that works for them.

I invite you to visit our website and read some of the many alumni success stories. I hope you will see what a difference Middlesex has made in the lives of these students, and be inspired to make a commitment to get the education you need, to make the changes you want in your life. At Middlesex, we make change happen.
