Tai Ekundayo - “Student Support Services at Fulton Montgomery Community College”


Tai Ekundayo

Tai is a mature student studying Radiology at Fulton Montgomery Community College in the US.  He’s travelled from Nigeria via the UK to find himself in the US. His story is moving and inspirational.


Other student support services housed in the library are TRiO, Academic Support Services, Writing Lab, Math Lab and Computer Lab. TRiO provides academic and financial advising, transfer advisement, and tutoring. To qualify for TRiO you must be either a first generation college student (neither parent holds a four-year college degree), are income qualified or you have a physical/learning/mental disability. The Academic Support Services, coordinated by Ellie Fosmire, work closely with students to help them achieve their academic success goals and assists them with any learning needs they may have, such as providing class notes and separate testing rooms for students with disabilities. The writing Lab provides help with formatting styles for essays, reports, term papers, etc., and the Math and Computer Labs provide tutoring service for students who need help with math and computer classes such as CIS 105.


“TRiO ...” 

Personally I have found Evans library to be a very resourceful place on campus and I would recommend that every student use the services provided as much as possible to achieve even greater academic success! I wish you all the best in your educational endeavours; keep warm, be safe, and don’t forget spring is just around the corner!
