On April 6, Cape May Campus Security Captain Charles Mettille facilitated a virtual table top exercise provided by FEMA that focused on hurricane response and recovery that the college would need to prepare for if a hurricane interrupted services. Several colleges and private businesses on the East Coast participated.

Participants included: Scott Morgan, Cape May County Office of Emergency Management; Atlantic Cape Public Safety employees Sgt. Rogers, Sgt. Jayne and Sgt. Fernanders; William Keener, public safety and security, Eileen Curristine, human resources; Rob Townsend, facilities; Sandi Grecco and April Wolff, ITS; Shane Ritchie and Kathy Flynn, health services; Dr. Mitchell Levy and Tammy DeFranco, student services; Dorie Keener and August Daquila, business services; and Michael Bruckler, college relations.


Atlantic Cape’s Cross Functional Safe Campus Committee hosted guest presenter Sgt. Joe Guerrier from Hamilton Township Police Department at its April meeting.  Guerrier, also Student Resource Officer of Hamilton Township Elementary Schools, presented “Alert, Lock down, Inform, Counter Evacuate, ALICE Training.”

The training is similar to our current active shooter training provided by the college’s public safety department.

ALICE provides advanced securing technics to classrooms or office areas.

Atlantic Cape senior nursing students conducted poster board presentations on various patient-related topics including healthy eating, diabetes education, home care information and responsible social media use, Monday, April 11, in H-building.

In every class, every semester, Susan DePhilippis, ESL, has students exchange cellphone numbers with a peer they’ve met through an icebreaker activity.

DePhilippis says, “It facilitates a sense of community among students from day one, especially with new students. It also keeps everyone up to date if someone is absent.

But, students this semester were even cleverer with their phones, solving one student’s dilemma of having to go to her native home of Colombia for a family need and resulting in missing a week of class.

The student pre-arranged with me to Facetime (video-conference) with a peer during class who positioned his phone for her to see, hear and interact with all that we were doing.  So, Atlantic Cape held class in Colombia this semester — I love the power of technology for education and the ingenuity of our students.”
