October is a significant time of year for numerous reasons. Autumn brings cooler temperatures and changes the colors of the leaves. Your favorite football team is either breaking your heart or getting you excited for postseason play. Pumpkin Spice Lattes are the norm and pumpkin patches provide a perfect weekend activity. October also is the time for midterms. Believe it or not, but you are halfway through the semester. If you are currently enrolled in a 16-week class, keep an eye on your CPCC email in the upcoming weeks for a midterm intervention from your professor. Use the feedback to find out your academic progress at the midway point in the semester. Everyone at CPCC wants you to do well. Take advantage of the resources available in order to achieve success!
