October is finishing up with some noteworthy and tasty events at CMCC.
More than three dozen students and employees dropped in to see Dr. Mitchell Levy, vice president of student affairs and branch campus management, during an informal Meet & Greet Oct. 20. Everyone had the opportunity to meet Dr. Levy and provide feedback on how things are going for them at CMCC. Of course, some freshly baked pumpkin cookies from Madison’s Bakery helped facilitate the conversation!
The local Naviance users group met at CMCC Oct. 24, hosted by Andre Richburg, dean of enrollment management and college relations. Naviance is a college and career readiness software provider that partners with high schools and other K–12 institutions to provide students with college-planning and career-assessment tools. The Cape May County users group hopes to meet again at CMCC in the future, and we’re delighted to have them!
Yes, we do have a functioning club at CMCC. In fact, the Circle K Club hosted a two-day bake sale in the first floor lobby, 4:30 – 7:30 p.m., Oct. 28 and 29. Plenty of home baked goodies are on sale, and all proceeds benefit UNICEF. Donna Marie McElroy, professor of social work, is the club’s advisor.
PTK hosted a degree completion pledge-signing event, Oct. 29, in the first floor lobby from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Many students stopped by and learned about the many benefits of earning an associate degree.
Senior adjunct instructor Neil Brandt is bringing his former professor from Penn State to class Nov. 6 – via Skype! Professor Emeritus of Middle East History, Dr. Arthur Goldschmidt Jr. will talk with Neil’s World Religions class about the latest developments in the Middle East. The entire campus community is invited to join them in Room 212, 10:45 – 11:30 a.m.
Don’t forget to tend to your clocks this coming weekend and fall back one hour Sunday, Nov. 2, at 2 a.m. If Daylight Saving Time is almost over, can Thanksgiving and finals be far behind?
