The University of Southern Maine and York County Community College opened a new USM/YCCC Resource Office on YCCC’s campus Thursday, September 23. The Resource Office will help YCCC students continue their college studies by pursuing bachelor’s degrees at USM.
YCCC students, faculty and staff met Resource Center staff members USM Student Success Associate Maggie Guzman and USM Graduate Assistant Susan White at Thursday’s ceremony.
