Campus Transfer Fair

The Worthington Atlantic City Campus hosted a transfer fair on Oct.15. Students began in the first floor lobby as they met with more than 20 colleges.  Tables showcasing colleges were set up in the cafeteria and the second floor lobby.

Wendy Gray organized the event with support from Student Services Director Cynthia Correa, Dr. Alice Rainey, Diana Lojewski, Vita Stovall, Kay Pandit and Ben Ward Jr.

Students and representatives were surveyed regarding their experiences. We hope to use their comments to help with planning next fall’s event. Statements from college representatives included, “great interactions with students,” and “met several very interested prospects.”

Cross Cultural Club Readies for Halloween  

On Oct. 28, Cross Cultural Club members put their creativity to work for pumpkin carving. Club advisors Shirley Shields and Michael Kammer gave a quick lesson and then the carving began. This American tradition was a first-time experience for many of the students who come from other countries. The carved pumpkins were on display for other to view, lit with battery-operated candles.
