To the Students of FM
Welcome to Fulton-Montgomery Community College.
In this student handbook, THE SOURCE 2016-17 Student Handbook, you will find a variety of programs and services offered at FM that are designed to help you be a successful college student. It also includes a description of the multitude of student clubs and diverse organizations that are on campus to help you enjoy your college experience. Please take time to familiarize yourself with this handbook and all that it has to offer.
Included within this handbook is detailed information about your responsibilities as a college student. As you enter FM, you enter a new phase of your education. College expectations of you are higher than you may have experienced in high school; but I am confident that you can attain them. Here at FM everyone is expected to conduct themselves with honesty and integrity, be open to new ideas, celebrate the diversity of those around you, and conduct yourself in a civil and professional manner. If you follow the student code of conduct and are considerate of everyone on campus, I know that you will do well at our college.
Of course, in addition to your studies, you should have fun! College can be one of the most rewarding times of your life. You will develop new friendships and create memories that you will have for a lifetime. In order to make the most of your college experience, get involved in student clubs, student government, athletics, co-curricular activities, and the events at FM.
If you take advantage of all that FM has to offer, I am sure that you will be successful in your studies and enjoy your college experience.
Best wishes for a great year.
