Looking back and ahead
Brandon Dewease charges up the Liftoff audience.
With a virtual convocation kickoff, MCCers prepped for the first day of Fall Semester 2021 in a wide array of activities from standing committee meetings, insurance sign-up, and professional development sessions.
The highlight, though, was the first-ever MCC Liftoff. This one-day event for incoming freshmen replaced a traditional orientation and was designed for students to get to know the campus, meet instructors and staff, and get prepped for Monday’s start.
More than 180 first-time, full-time first-year students participated, said Brandon Dewease, director of student engagement. Dewease thanked colleagues. “You guys, the faculty and staff, played such an important role in making that portion of the day successful.”
