Student News & Announcements
September 25 may have brought rain, but that didn't dampen anyone's spirits at the Black and Gold Bash. Students took a break between classes to have a bite to eat, have a little fun and learn more about student clubs and organizations, and support services at the College.
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!
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. At each orientation session, students were given tips on how to navigate the College, along with the resources to start and continue on a path to success.
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. Altogether, College staff and students filled more that 200 backpacks, half of which will be delivered to Spring Garden School this week. Others will be donated to students in western Nigeria and to local students as needed.
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. Members of the College community donated the backpacks and school supplies.
