The first Fireside Chat of the 2018-2019 academic year was just one of many events taking place at the College in recognition of Latinx Heritage Month. Staff, faculty and students gathered to reflect on Latinx culture and enjoy s'mores and cider by the fireside.
Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787, recognizing all who are born in the U.S., or by naturalization, have become citizens. The College recognized National Constitution Day on Sept. 17, where students were invited to learn more about the Constitution, register to vote, learn how to vote on a real voting machine from the City Commissioner's Office and complete a "Why I Vote" card to hang on our pledge wall. #CCPVotes
The College community came together on the morning of Sept. 11 to pay tribute to the memory of those who lost their lives on 9/11, including members of the Philadelphia community.

Thousands of new students were welcomed to the College the week of Aug. 27 with a series of new student orientation events at the Main Campus and three Regional Centers.

On August 27, volunteers from the College were at Spring Garden School, an K-8 school in the College’s neighborhood, to cheer on students for their first day of school. Community College of Philadelphia adopted Spring Garden School this year as part of the School District of Philadelphia's Adopt-a-School program. Members of the College’s International Student Association and the Institute for Community Engagement and Civic Leadership operated a table outside of the school starting at 7:30 a.m., handing out coffee, doughnuts — and information about the College's programs.
To help kickoff the College’s adoption of Spring Garden School, students, faculty and staff worked side by side on August 14 and 15 to fill close to 200 backpacks with school supplies, and to create cards with messages of encouragement. The backpacks are being distributed to Spring Garden School students who need them on the first day of school, Aug. 27, where volunteers from the College will be there to greet them. The unused backpacks will be donated to students in Western Region Nigeria and to local students as needed.
