Welcome back for the Spring 2021 semester!
Five Towns College is excited to march forward – literally and figuratively – in both the on-ground and virtual spaces. Let’s hope that the warmer weather brings to all great opportunities for a successful educational experience. While the pandemic is certainly not over, we remain positive that as the infection rates decrease and vaccine supplies increase, sunny days await us all. Remember to stay vigilant and continue to practice social distancing, mask wearing, hand sanitizing and to be respectful to all in our community.
Here are five ways to make a fresh start this Spring 2021:
#1. Stay connected! Events are happening virtually and on campus. Download the FTC APP (scroll to bottom of this page to see how: https://www.ftc.edu/current-students/), check your email and follow the FTC social pages. There is always something to talk about!
#2. Try new things! Join a club, meet new people and explore the campus. Have you seen the TV studio, film sets and radio station yet? Go here to learn how to start a club: https://www.ftc.edu/student-life/clubs-and-organizations/.
#3. Get to know your student support resources! The Student Success Center is that area of the College dedicated to supporting students’ academic experiences. On-campus head to the 100-wing or virtually, click here to learn more: https://www.ftc.edu/student-life/student-success-center-academic-support/.
#4. Think about new opportunities! Visit the Career Services Center to learn about internships or search for jobs. Find out more here: https://www.ftc.edu/career-services/ .
#5. Most importantly, always mask up and socially distance. Click here for updates on Covid-19 protocols and Public Bulletins: https://www.ftc.edu/public-health-bulletins-and-institutional-reopening/ .
The FTC Sound Esports team is heating up, too! Be sure to follow them on TWITCH by clicking here: twitch.tv/fivetowns_sound. There you will find the games they compete in, competition schedules, game replays and links on where to follow on social media. Cheer on your favorite player and let them hear from you in the live chat! Nothing is more inspiring than having an active fan base and enthusiastic followers. While on campus pass by the new Esports venue in the main academic hub-maybe you’ll catch a game in play!
During these past winter months, Five Towns College has been busy coordinating Zoom Information Sessions, Virtual Open Houses, college fairs, in-person and virtual learning experiences. These events are open to all and a great way for potential students to learn more about academic programs, Sound Athletics, residence and student life. Go here for upcoming Zoom Information Sessions https://www.ftc.edu/zoom/ and check back for updates on Virtual Open Houses https://www.ftc.edu/virtual/ – the next one is set for March 18; 7-9pm.
Stay safe, take care of each other, and here’s to a fantastic Spring 2021 semester together.
