A message from Donna Vassallo, Dean, Worthington Atlantic City Campus:
The Worthington Atlantic City Campus was proud to participate in “Chalk About AC,” an event hosted today by the Atlantic City Arts Foundation held on Saturday, Oct. 14. The chalk effort, in its third year, is one of several the foundation has been working on in the city to foster art and inspiration. Over 120 students worked alongside local artists in beautifying Brown’s Park and other AC locations with chalk art. Atlantic Cape was the host site for registration and lunch.

The ESL and Modern Languages Department is grateful to its new partners who have formed an advisory board for the General Studies Program.

A message from Denise-Marie Coulter, Dean of Liberal Studies:
Professor Tony DeLuca had guitarist Teddy Royal visit his Music Appreciation class at Worthington Center to discuss with students his experience as a professional musician. Royal, a guitarist, was born in New York, but he traveled the world playing jazz, blues and rock and roll with a number of artists, including the Four Pennies, the Nevill brothers and Fats Domino. He said the latter was like a father figure to him and a terrific cook, let alone an amazing musical artist. Royal demonstrated his talent for the students and answered their questions. Here is a photograph of Mr. Royal and Mr. DeLuca with the class.

Dr. Nancy Purcell’s Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) students recently collaborated on a research project focused on the causes of procrastination. They reported their findings on a bulletin board outside of their classroom for public consumption. Here is a picture of Dr. Purcell and the students who created the bulletin board.
