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. As their names were read aloud, thirty flags were raised throughout the crowd to acknowledge the 30 Pennsylvanians who tragically lost their lives that day.
Student, faculty and staff volunteers welcomed new students and welcomed back returning students during Welcome Week. Students were greeted with cookies and coffee in the morning. In the afternoons, students on Main Campus were invited to chill out with ice cream, water ice and popcorn. Students with evening classes at all locations were invited to indulge in delicious college staples like pizza, pretzels and donuts. Welcome back, students!
