Cumberland County College is very successful in the many interesting activities that they have been doing for years. This semester, the college has been keeping the fun on campus with these activities:
Pizza with our very own Dr. Isekenegbe was held in the cafeteria of the Student Center on April 1. Students were able to ask the president questions about many different things past, present, and future occurring on the campus.
Phi Theta Kappa sponsored the fun, yet relaxing event of yoga in the college’s gym on April 15. The event began at 5pm with a minimum charge of five dollars. Yoga mats were available on a first come first serve basis.
Duke for a Day was one of the most interesting events this semester. On April 14, 8th grade students from Lakeside Middle School joined the different college classes to experience college life.
On April 25 CCC’s Alumni Association sponsored the 5k marathon run. All were welcome and proceeds went to scholarships for the Alumni.
During Earth week, 2nd nature club introduced their second annual Environmental Education and Awareness Fair to show students and faculty ways to help the environment.
Bake sales, bakes sales and more bakes sales! Different clubs love using bake sales as a way to raise money for their activities. Most bake sale activities are held in the Fine and Performing Arts Center and some clubs set up outside of the Student Center.
Cumberland’s Got Talent was an event filled with singing, poems, and more. This event was April 30 in the Fine and Performing Arts Center Theater and was completely free of charge to all who attended.
Spring Fling is keeping extreme fun at the college. This event is a fun end of semester bash for all that want to release the stress of all the schoolwork and finals. Zip lining, food, and more are available free of charge. This event left people happy that the semester has come to a close. The event was held April 29.
The last event of the semester will be the Poetry Slam. The Poetry Slam is, as the title states, a show of poetry and jazz music. This event will be held in the Fine and Performing Arts Center Theater and is free and open to the public. The Poetry Slam will be held May 6 free of charge and is a great way to end the semester.
