Starting college mid-year at college can be challenging for many students. At OCC, you’re among hundreds of students starting in the Spring Semester. Here are our tips for making the most out of starting at college mid-year.

Get Involved On-campus

The easiest way to make your experience starting college mid-year great is to get involved on your campus. Clubs, organizations, and work-study jobs are all great ways to become part of the campus community quickly. At OCC, we’ll be showcasing all the ways you can get involved this Thursday, January 18th at 11:15 a.m. in the Gordon Hallway. Stop by or fill out the online form to get more information on how you can get involved.

Make Learning a Habit Again

Chances are that you may have gotten out of good studying and learning habits if you’ve been out of school for a bit. If you need help getting back in the habit of learning, visit the Learning Center. They have study skills workshops and tutoring assistance for both exams and writing assignments. Make the visit to the Learning Center early to get back in good learning habits.

Join the Class of 2019 Facebook Group to Meet Your Peers

While you may not graduate exactly with people who started in Fall 2017, you can still join the Class of 2019 Facebook Group. You’ll be able to connect with your fellow Lazers that started in the Fall.

Come to a Start Strong Session  

OCC wants to make sure you start off the semester on the right foot. That’s why we created Start Strong Sessions that will run before and during the first week of classes. You’ll be able to explore all the resources at OCC that can help you along the way and see how you can save some money on your textbooks.

We want you to be able to start off the semester on the right foot! If you are in need of assistance or have questions please reach out to us at 315-498-2000 or occinfo@sunyocc.edu.
