GO THE DISTANCE

Tomorrow is Go the Distance Day, which marks the halfway point in the semester. To celebrate and encourage you all to go the distance, Student Affairs is organizing events on campus, including a kazoo concert at noon on the Quad. Everyone will get a kazoo, and you can pretend like you're back in grade school and blow off some stress.

Congratulations to Maria D'Apolito, who has been named the Director of Student Engagement. In addition to overseeing CCAD's new student orientation programs, Maria will lead the Student Engagement Office, which supports student clubs and organizations, organizes campus-wide events, and enhances the overall student experience. We're launching a search to find a dynamic and innovative individual to fill Maria's current role of Assistant Director of Student Engagement and Inclusion.
