Past Summer Welcome Receptions

Due to the developing outbreak of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, we are suspending planning for all regional events until further notice.

Please note: To support the college’s efforts to keep our campus healthy and safe, our team is currently working remotely. Our working hours are still 8am to 4:30pm EDT. Any emails received will be responded to within one business day. We are also happy to meet with you—whether via Zoom or over the phone —within those times. Our toll-free line (1-888-522-8371) is monitored regularly.
