Our evening students, staff & faculty took a cool break and enjoyed some ice cream. Just because is summer and ice cream is always a good idea!
Hunched over out computers, stooped and squinting into our phones—with the majority of us spending over 10 hours a day looking at a screen of some kind, terrible posture has become the norm.
I had the opportunity to meet with three employees who have been at CW almost as long as I have! They are Bob Onorato, Stacy Larson and Maria Gangi. While I exaggerate just a bit, these three folks have been with CW for a while, and brought unique insights that only people who “remember when” can do. We had a lively discussion about many topics including orientation, the CW culture and how it has evolved over the years, as well as innovative alternate academic delivery methods, academic pr
Student Activities sponsored CW's annual Barbecue and Softball Game in Delfino Park yesterday. Students and Staff & Faculty gathered to enjoy a BBQ, summer treats sold by Sisters United, and the traditional softball game between students and Staff & faculty. Students won yet again with a final score of 16-9!!
The Office of Bachelor Studies & Returning Students put together the CW version of Family Feud, an interactive and informative game where students from different programs answered questions regarding the benefits of a Bachelor’s degree program at CW.
When asked how often they check their email each day, most people can’t even begin to estimate. Lots of us leave our inboxes open all day long. Yes, email messages are vital to communication, but the downside is that they can be a distraction, especially if we enable alerts and notifications that disrupt us through the day.

No matter what time of day or year, it’s always a perfect time for ice cream; but if that time of the year is summer with 85 degrees that’s even better! Student Activities sponsored the annual Ice Cream Social where Day Students, faculty and staff enjoyed ice cream from the Good Humor ice cream truck. Everybody enjoyed each other’s company as well as delicious free ice cream.
CW welcomed our evening students during yesterday’s Adult College Summer Term New Student Orientation. During the event students were greeted by Dr. Warren Rosenberg, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs.
Other presentations included Dr. Judith Lilleston, Associate Dean, Student Success & Retention, and Student Speaker Abeer Ghanem.
Professor Janet Thompson’s Management Applications and Theory group welcomed me several weeks ago. Professor Thompson invited me to participate via VoiceThread, which I did. We discussed Quality Management and The Female Factor. I have to tell the truth – I was not an intense participant, as technology got in my way! I was away for part of the week and did not get to respond to every student’s comments, and had to opt for written comments rather than voice a few times. However,
You already know that time management is an important skill. Having a handle on where you time helps you get your work done, manage stress, and help you schedule in important stuff outside of school and work like, you know, life.
Summer is upon us. Lots of partying, sunbathing, and enjoying time spent with families and friends. The last thing we want to think about is watching what we eat. Why should we? After all, we have earned the right to have fun and celebrate.
Yet, lurking in our body could be a potentially deadly disease called colorectal cancer. Many of us have never even heard of it let alone think that it could ever affect them.
