Welcome Back MESA Students ~ FALL 2016!

We hope you had a wonderful summer and are ready for another exciting and productive term in the MESA Program and in your courses. We wanted to notify you of a few important items of business as you begin your fall 2016 term.

The MESA Center will be open throughout the term Monday through Wednesday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday 9a.m. to 2 p.m. 

We have redesigned our supplemental instruction workshops for your academic success. This term we are offering weekly review sessions and organized study groups for Computer Science 112, Computer Science 161, Physics 161, Physics 141, Chemistry 180, Biology 150, Biology 155, Biology 128, Engineering 161, and Engineering 152. You may review the schedule of session offerings as well as our tutor availability at

If you haven’t met with Angelica Enriquez, MESA/STEM Counselor recently, please make an appointment to do so. It is important that every MESA student meet with her sometime between August and December to verify you are on track academically. Please work with Dorine to schedule an appointment after the first two weeks of classes. 

If you have not had a chance to utilize the MESA website regularly, please get in the habit of checking it at least every two weeks for news and important information. All MESA/STEM events, activities, field trips, and workshops are posted on the website, as well as the Review Sessions/Organized Study Groups and tutoring schedules. You can access the website by visiting the main Hancock site and selecting MESA from the quick links. Here is also a link: 

 The STEM/MESA Activities and Workshop schedule for the term is completed and posted to the MESA website. It is required that all MESA students attend at least 3 activities/workshops within the term. If you are experiences difficulties attending, you must notify Dorine and explain your circumstances. We will be taking attendance and electronically keeping records of your MESA involvement. I think you will find the workshops valuable and a good use of your time. Please visit: 

If you are planning to transfer to university fall 2017, please check your email regularly for updates and deadline notifications from the universities. Make sure to stay connected to the MESA program as you prepare to transition to the next level (exciting!). We will be holding “TAG You’re In” workshops in September and “UC and CSU Application” workshops throughout October and November. 

We look forward to seeing all you wonderful people in the MESA Center soon. If there is anything we can do to help you get off to a great start this term, please feel free to let us know.

Take Care and Happy Fall 2016!

Angelica and Dorine

Graduating high school with honors and realizing I did not have the monetary means to go off to a university like I had always dreamed about felt like a setback. Being at a community college, for my first semester, felt like a detriment to my education. Despite this I began to reach out to other students and was referred by a student to a program called MESA. MESA has shaped my educational career. MESA has provided me with opportunities I would have otherwise missed on my own, an opportunity to work with other like-minded majors who have since become like family. With this kind of strong foundation I have been able to excel in my science, mathematics, and engineering courses.
