Whether it’s your first or final semester here, welcome to Fall 2017 at Macomb Community College. It’s been awhile since I’ve been a college student, but I remember the excitement and sense of possibility that exists during the first week or two of a new semester. My wish is that you continue to feel that way every day you attend class.
Don’t doubt yourself or your ability, and if you need help, don’t hesitate to ask for it. All of us at Macomb want you to succeed. It’s why we are here, and why you are as well. Let’s work together to make that happen. And, while I’m glad to welcome back so many returning students, it’s with our incoming freshmen that I share a unique bond. This is my first full semester to serve as president of Macomb. While I am confident about what lies ahead, I expect there will be a few things I, too, have yet to learn. So, you see, this will be an important semester for all of us. Let’s make it one we will all want to remember.
Best of luck in your classes,
Jim Sawyer, President, Macomb Community College
