Congratulations Class of 2020!

President’s Message

Dear Middlesex County College graduate:

Congratulations! The entire Middlesex County College community – faculty, staff, alumni, and Trustees – joins me in honoring your achievement and celebrating with you this new beginning that we mark at Commencement. Earning an associate degree or certificate is a major life accomplishment, and you should be proud. We know that you worked hard to arrive at this moment. In addition to completing a rigorous course of study, the majority of you also held down one or more jobs, and many of you also have family obligations. In the face of all those challenges, you navigated and persisted and earned your degree or certificate. This milestone also marks fulfillment of a promise from our incredible faculty and staff who have inspired, challenged, and supported you on your journey at Middlesex County College. I have every reason to believe that the support from your families, loved ones, and friends also contributed to your success. Savor this accomplishment with them.

Our country and our world need you now more than ever – your ideas, your passion, and your commitment. I have no doubt that wherever your journey in life takes you from here – additional higher education, the world of work, athletic competition, civic engagement, or community service – you will continue to learn, grow, and achieve. As you continue to find success in whatever path you take, I encourage you to seek ways to serve your community so that those who follow in your footsteps may have the same opportunity to succeed that you have had.

All of us at the College have been privileged to share in your journey at Middlesex and now look forward to claiming you as alumni. Please stay in touch and remember that your success started at Middlesex County College.
