11/20/23 Student Update

Hello Cambridge College Students,

As we continue through November and gear up for the upcoming holiday season, it's important to acknowledge that this month can be exciting and bring mixed emotions for many of us. With the year winding down, many students might be feeling a bit overwhelmed.

To help you tackle this busy month, here's a straightforward tip for success: Stay organized! A well-structured schedule can be a game-changer in managing your coursework and maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

Don't forget, there are valuable workshops available this week to equip you with the tools and knowledge you need to stay ahead and finish the year strong. We're here to support your academic journey every step of the way. As always, Cambridge College professional tutors can help you with all aspects of your writing assignments. TutorMe, CCs free 24/7 tutoring service, is another helpful resource. You can also make an appointment with CCLearning Specialist for assistance in making a plan to complete your classwork.


Here is the list of upcoming workshops and events. Please come and join us!


How to Research Companies and Industries

Tuesday, November 21, 7:00-8:00 p.m. (ET) via Zoom. Click here to register >>

Developing your skill at researching companies and industries can pay off in numerous ways. It can help you with your coursework, identify prospective employers, prepare for interviews, and research personal investments. CC Librarian Jeff Cronin will begin with a brief presentation about the different types of companies, e.g., publicly held and privately held. He will then discuss a variety of resources on the web and in databases at the Cambridge College Online Library that provide data and analysis for companies and industries. There will also be an opportunity for questions. If you need any additional information, please contact Jeff Cronin at


ePoster Workshop

Tuesday, November 21, 5:00-6:30 p.m. (ET) via Zoom. Click here to register >>

An ePoster is a digital presentation format required in some undergraduate and graduate classes, as well as a good format for presenting in many professional situations. ePosters apply the skill of remediation, the process of taking a text and translating it into a new medium. In this one-hour workshop, students will learn the basics of ePosters, including use of templates, examples of effective ePosters, and tips and tricks for strong presentations.
