Alum Exhibits at MCCC Gallery Tonight and This Weekend
Flannery O. Miller, an 2010 MCCC graduate and visual arts scholarship winner, returns to the area, fresh from successfully completing her BFA at Alfred University where she focused on painting and neon sculpture. This weekend she will exhibit some of the work she created since her graduation. “Source: Recent Works by Flannery O. Miller” opens this Thursday evening, June 28, with a reception for the artist between 6 to 9 p.m. The gallery will also be open for visitors Friday, June 29 (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.), Saturday, June 30 (11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 to 7 p.m.) and Sunday, July 1 (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.). Ms. Miller, who volunteered in The Gallery at MCCC during her tenure at Mercer, will be on hand to meet with visitors. A flyer about the show is linked here, along with an artist's statement here.


"Bye Bye Birdie" Opens July 13
Poodle skirts and leather jackets are the height of style as Kelsey Theatre 2012 Summer Festival presents The Yardley Players in the rock n’ roll musical, “Bye Bye Birdie.” Inspired by the media frenzy that surrounded Elvis Presley when he was drafted into the army in 1957, “Bye Bye Birdie” tells the story of Conrad Birdie, the biggest rock & roll star of the late 1950's.  Conrad’s agent, Albert Peterson, is convinced he can make his fortune and marry the girl of his dreams if he gets Conrad on “The Ed Sullivan Show” to make his farewell television performance and kiss his “biggest fan” before he goes to war.  But Albert’s mother is against his marriage and Conrad’s contest winner is in love with another (or so she says). Will the show go off without a hitch?

Zumba Classes Scheduled

WWFM Enters Philadelphia Market with HD Signal
WWFM The Classical Network has returned its programming to the Philadelphia market, bringing the MCCC station within reach of more people than any classical music station in the U.S. The fully digital, full-time classical music station can be found on 89.5 HD2. This follows a similar expansion into the New York market this past December. General Manager Peter Fretwell reports that the current base of listeners is enthusiastic about the station’s expansion. “Those who love classical music want to spread it. They are excited to see us grow.” More here.

Tennis Court, Soccer Field and More Completed at WWC
From Valerie Sassaman in Facilities: The renovation and improvements to the tennis courts at the West Windsor Campus are complete. Resurfacing and repairs, tennis nets and posts were replaced. Also complete are new fencing and striping for a three-lane track. The parking lot was expanded and paved with a new roadway and walkway. The soccer field project has also been completed, including the removal and replacement of the synthetic turf. The striping and “M” logo at center field finished off the project this week!

Stop by and admire the fine workmanship that was put into our tennis courts and soccer field, or go to the Facilities website “Projects 2012” to view photos.


DREAM Program Peer Mentors Needed
Please spread the word to students! MCCC's DREAM program is looking for peer mentors for the fall semester.

Training takes place in mid August. This is a paid position. Contact Sue Onaitis at ext. 3375 or e-mail onaitiss@mccc.edu.

Baseball Team Continues Winning Ways
Finishing the season ranked 18th nationally with a 29-15 record, the Vikings baseball team continued its winning ways in 2012. The Vikings advanced all the way to the Region 19 championship game before a tough loss against a very talented Lackawanna College team. Led by interim Head Coach Kevin Kerins, who assumed the post in January, there was barely a ripple as the Vikings adjusted to new leadership just two months before the start of the season. According to Kerins, the Vikings' success was due to skill, a solid work ethic, and great team chemistry. More here.
