Phi Theta Kappa C4 Rally Tomorrow at Mays Landing Campus

Come out tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. to celebrate Phi Theta Kappa’s “Commit to Complete” initiative in the cafeteria of the Mays Landing Campus!

Statistics show the surest way for anyone to land a job in their chosen field is to finish college and earn a degree or certificate. That’s exactly what students at Atlantic Cape are promising to do–signing a mass pledge to complete their associate degrees in three years before leaving community college for transfer or to enter the job market.

Thursday’s rally includes performances by the choir and cheerleaders, alumni speakers, essay winners, awards and light refreshments.
