Women" Coming to MCCC
What do you get when you combine 70 of the region's most outstanding women
artists with 70 women activists, adventurers and artists from the last
century? You get a combustible mixture of art, history, and life -- "Dangerous
Women Two" -- one of the season's most unique installations. The
multiple-media exhibition will be at The Gallery Sept. 4 through Oct.
Needed at The Gallery
Because of expected popularity of "Dangerous Women," The Gallery
would like to extend its evening and weekend hours, so additional docents
are needed. To learn more about volunteering as a docent, call (609) 570-3588
or email email@example.com.
"Transitions" a Huge
More than 50 people
-- non-traditional students looking to come back to MCCC in some way --
attended Mercer's "Adults in Transition" Open House on Aug.
8. Attendees included those interested in credit and noncredit programs,
certificate programs, and those thinking about retiring. According
to Lorna Strang, the event provided information about different routes
to career success and personal enrichment.
In an effort to help returning adult students who have been away from
a structured academic environment, Mercer begins a new program this fall
entitled "C.A.R.E." (Classes for Adults Returning to Education).
Courses will help participants overcome test-taking anxiety, review basic
math operations, and enhance reading and writing abilities utilized in
the College Skills Placement Test.
Mercer's Facilities staff members have been working hard for the past
several weeks on the central quadrangle. They have completed a new drainage
system, a retaining wall and installed the sod this week. Photos
