Welcome to our new evening and online students! Spring comes early for us every year when we hold orientation and welcome students who start classes in the dark days of winter but bring Springtime and light into our halls and our online classroom, Moodle!

CW welcomed our evening students during the Adult College Spring I New Student Orientation. During the event students were greeted by our Provost & Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dr. Warren Rosenberg, and Mary Beth Del Balzo, President and CEO. “CW is your oasis. When things get tough, remember that CW is the place that is helping you make your dreams come true,” said Ms. Del Balzo.

Stay calm and good luck guys!
