April is an exciting and action-packed time at CCAC. Spring classes are starting to wind down, finals week is right around the corner, registration is going on for both summer and fall classes and behind the scenes, CCAC staff, faculty and administrators are finishing preparations for the upcoming Commencement ceremony.
Graduation is a rite of passage, a way of recognizing the journey, hard work and achievement of students who have completed one leg of their life’s journey and are preparing to embark on the next exciting path.
To all of our CCAC students graduating this year, I congratulate you on your remarkable achievement and look forward to seeing you at the Commencement exercises on May 17 at the Petersen Events Center. (And if any of you out there were on the fence, it’s not too late to RSVP and order your cap and gown, but sooner is better than later!)
Whether your next steps are taking you to a four-year college to continue your educational journey or toward landing an exciting job in their chosen field, we wish you all of the best and invite you to stay in touch! We love hearing stories of CCAC alumni doing amazing things. Get involved with the CCAC Alumni chapter and enjoy social events, professional development meetups and even mentoring and volunteering opportunities.
I’d also like to draw your attention to the CCAC Job Placement & Career Services center at your campus or center. If you haven’t already visited this office, you may want to swing by sometime—between offering resume and interview skills assistance, online job resources and useful manuals and how-to documents, they’ve got the tools you need to help you land your dream job.
I am so proud and honored to be able to personally shake the hands of all of our amazing CCAC graduates as they cross the stage in a few weeks’ time. Rejoice in where your hard work and dedication has brought you and go forth with pride in all you have achieved. Congratulations, CCAC Class of 2018!
And for our returning students, I would be remiss if I did not mention that registration for summer and fall 2018 classes is going on right now and it would be much easier to sign up before spring semester ends than to wait too long and risk the classes you need being full or dropped due to low enrollment. You can always drop classes later if your plans change! (But please: do remember to drop by the deadlines in MyCCAC to avoid unwanted charges.)
