A Message from the President - April 9, 2020

Thu, 04/09/2020

Hello from your CW President, Mary Beth Del Balzo

I hope you and your family are well.

We are launching a brief survey that I am asking you to complete as soon as possible. It is available HERE, and it will be available via Moodle and in a link sent to you via text.  The purpose of the survey is to see how things are going with you and it will only take a few minutes to complete.  You should only take it one time.  Thank you!

Upcoming Class Start Date Information

With your safety in mind, CW will continue to hold all upcoming Spring Day and Adult/Online classes remotely. We look forward to seeing you back on campus once CW and/or outside authorities feel it is safe to return.  In the meantime, we will continue to provide our very best service to you so that you have the opportunity to complete your studies on time! 

Adult and Online classes begin May 11
Day classes begin online on May 13.

New Student Orientation Information

New Student orientation will take place for all new students before the start of classes.  Your admissions counselor will contact you to give you the details.  The CW Information Technology staff will be in touch with you via email next week to give you credentials to access the online portion of the orientation, and access to Moodle, the student learning management system (LMS).

CW Online Instruction

I would like to share a couple of facts about our online instruction:

  • In 2015, CW won the prestigious 2015 Quality Matters (QM) “Making a Difference for Students” Award/Institution Category.
  • CW is the only college or university in the northeast and mid-Atlantic United States to win this award.
  • Since 2012, only eight other colleges in the country have earned this recognition and award.

When we first talked several weeks ago, I promised you that you would become an expert in online education.  From what I hear from your instructors, you are attending classes, broadening your knowledge and enjoying your continued interactions.  I applaud you on your continuing to advance in your studies.  If you have any requests, please contact Maria Gangi at mgangi@cw.edu or 914.831.0350.

Free Online Meditation for Stress Relief

We all feel stress sometimes and now is no exception.  Check out these great meditations and opportunities for relaxation and wellness provided free to you by CW.  Most are only a few minutes long.  https://tinyurl.com/wellnesstipsforyou

If you are an essential worker, or have an essential worker in your household, many thanks and much gratitude.   If you celebrate, I hope you have a very happy holiday in good health.

As always, please be in touch directly with me at President@cw.edu.

And remember….We are CW Warrior Strong!!
