Carteret Community College February 2017

Off and Running

Our spring semester is back in full swing! Classes are off to a great start, the Computer Club is open for business, and exciting events are happening on campus.

Computer Club

The CCC Computer Club assists faculty/staff and students with technical problems encountered on their personal computers. From virus/malware removal to software installations these experienced technicians can help. The funds generated go toward paying for industry exams such as A+, Network+, and Security+.

The hours for Computer Club this semester are Tuesday & Thursday 2:30-4:30 in Wayne West 326. For more information, contact Your support is greatly appreciated.

ECU Trip

The Student Government Association is sponsoring a trip to tour ECU on Friday, March 3. The cost to attend is $5. If you are interested in transferring to ECU, this would be a great opportunity to learn more about the campus. Don't forget ECU has the Industrial Technology transfer program for IT and HBI students. For more information, email

Campus Happenings

Below are two fantastic events for students:

Brown-Bag Leadership Workshop with Tracy Mancini: On Wednesday, February 15th, our VP Tracy Mancini will be giving a talk titled “The 5 Myths of Leadership” in the Bryant Student Center at 11:30am to 12:30pm. Her talk will be geared towards helping students think about what it looks like to be a leader on campus. Our hope is that this can attract CCC students who are interested in growing as leaders on campus(in a club) and/or in the workplace. Ms. Mancini gave a similar talk to students at Duke when she did graduate work there, so this should be great.

American Dream Panel Discussion: On Wednesday, February 22nd 2017 at 11am the SGA will be hosting a panel discussion about the American Dream. The panel will be held in Joslyn Hall. David Quinn, Yelena Primina and student Christian Parnell each be briefly presenting on the American Dream. Our goal is to get a university-level discussion going for our students. We will have a 20-minute period after the presentations for discussion.

Our panelists will be answering the following questions: How do Americans define the Dream in 2017? How does that compare to past perceptions of the dream? How do current immigrants view the American Dream? Will Millennials be able to achieve the American Dream?
