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.

According to Mary Ruley Moyer, Director of Development and Community Outreach at The Arc of Atlantic County, “the classes encourage people with intellectual or developmental disabilities to express themselves and enhance their wellbeing.  The various forms of art can strengthen a person’s self-esteem giving them the courage to try new things and improve their quality of life.”

Atlantic Cape’s Cape May County Campus Launches 12- Week Seasonal Semester to Cater to Members of Tourism Industry starting this Spring

CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE—Atlantic Cape Community College’s Cape May
County Campus will offer the “12-Week Seasonal Semester,” a semester that “works around your schedule,” this spring. The college recognizes Cape May County’s seasonal economy and the need for workers during peak summertime months. Additionally, the Fall 2019 semester will begin Sept. 30, giving students the opportunity to work through the last busy month of the summer season without having to choose between financial stability and their educational goals.

“The Chamber applauds Atlantic Cape Community College for introducing this
creative scheduling program for Cape May County residents who struggle to balance overlapping work and class schedules.  In a seasonal tourism driven economy such as ours, work schedules often prevent students from enrolling in classes during the traditional academic calendar.  I see this a tremendous benefit to students as well as businesses who need their employees in September and May,” remarked Vicki Clark, president of the Cape May County Chamber of Commerce.

The spring classes offered run from Jan. 22-April 20, accommodating those with work schedules that reflect the summer tourism industry in the local community. Classes offered include English Composition, Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy and Physiology, Statistics, Public Speaking, Psychology and Child Psychology, Criminal Justice and Fundamentals of Drawing, Intro to Theater and Intro to Acting, Intro to Government and Politics, Music and Art Appreciation. Workforce Development courses being offered are Wildlife Photography, Personal Fitness Trainer, How to Buy and Sell on eBay, Serve Safe and Social Media Marketing Professional.

According to Maria Kellett, Dean of Cape May County Campus of Atlantic Cape
Community College, “It’s a great opportunity for students to earn credits towards their degree in an accelerated program. This Seasonal Semester is truly designed with Cape May County resident’s busy schedules in mind.”

Registration begins on October 29th for returning students and November 1st for new students. Students are encouraged to register early to secure their spot in the classes they want. Students can apply in person at our Cape May campus or online. Normal registration hours are weekdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The last day to register for classes in person is Jan. 18. To register online through Jan. 21, or view an updated schedule of spring courses, visit www.atlantic.edu/webadvisor .
