Commencement 2020 to take place as vehicle parade due to pandemic Graduation will look a little different this year with the June 12 commencement taking place in vehicles as graduates parade in cars through campus. Students are encouraged to decorate their cars for the event. The event will be livestreamed on the college’s YouTube channel, as well as being broadcast on Brooke Communications. If necessary, graduates can also tune in to i101 to hear the ceremony. The event will be recorded on YouTube for later viewing. The change is UCC’s response to a national effort by schools to mark their students’ important milestones without jeopardizing their safety because of

Getting prepared for exams: how to be ready for midterms or finals Exams are a challenge and every student knows this, but not everyone knows how powerful good studying habits can be. Many students often fall into the trap of cramming before an exam. On the other hand, having quality preparation can lead to excelling on an exam. Most students find preparing for an exam, to be a daunting task, but with practice students can find a way that works for them can help make exams a less stressful experience.

I’m going to miss all my fellow students and our advisor Melinda Benton. The Mainstream helped me improve my writing skills and how to come out of my shell. Having recently changed my major I was worried I was too far behind in what I should already know, but after my two terms at The Mainstream I feel a lot more comfortable with my decision to go into writing and have more confidence in my decision.

I graduated from high school 2 years ago, I graduate from community college on June 14. Those 2 years flew by like a shooting star. It might sound cliché, but just like a shooting star my life at UCC was short, but it made an impact. I made memories, friends, mentors and family.
