Project Life

honor of Dr. Deitemeyer’s inauguration on Nov. 3.

CPCC and Project Life invite students to attend its upcoming Drive Thru Swabbing event, being held on CPCC’s Central Campus from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., on Nov. 1, in the Overcash Driveway.

CPCC-based student organizations, including Rotaract Club, Cytotechnology Student Association and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, are all partnering with CPCC Service-Learning/Student Life to play a key leadership role in this initiative which seeks to add 700 new donors to the National Bone Marrow Registry List.

During the event, participants will have the inside of their cheeks swabbed for a tissue sample and complete paperwork. The process will take no longer than 10 minutes. After completing the registration process, participants will not only be added to the National Bone Marrow Registry List, but also have the opportunity to enjoy a free lunch – provided by CPCC’s Baking & Pastry Arts students – sign a well wish card for Dr. Deitemeyer and win a variety of prizes.

Come out and be a part of the movement and help save a life!

Donate to a Loaves and Fishes Food Barrel

CPCC’s partnership with Loaves & Fishes continues during Dr. Deitemeyer’s inauguration week when Loaves & Fishes sets up food barrels at each CPCC campus between Oct. 19 and Nov. 30. The CPCC community is invited to donate non-perishable items during this time.

If you’re not sure what to donate, visit the Loaves & Fishes Priority Needs List. All donated items will help feed individuals and families in need who are experiencing a short-term crisis by providing them with a week’s worth of nutritionally balanced groceries.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and helping a neighbor in need!

Tickets on Sale Sept. 1 to CPCC Theatre’s Upcoming Season

Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) Theatre announces individual tickets go on sale Sept. 1 for its upcoming season. This year, the troupe will bring an incredible lineup of quality shows, at prices the entire family can enjoy. In addition, parking is free for all productions.

Join us during this extraordinary production season by attending one – or more – of the following 2017/2018 performances. Student tickets are just $5!

“The Bridges of Madison County,” September 22 – October 1, Dale F. Halton Theater
Jason Robert Brown and Marsha Norman’s “The Bridges of Madison County” captures the lyrical expanse of America’s heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question “What if…?” Just like the Meryl Streep film of the same name, this sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross will leave audiences breathless. With a soaring score and a heartbreaking story, “The Bridges of Madison County” is a touching and powerful start to CPCC Theatre’s 2017-2018 season.

“The Crucible,” October 27 November 5, Pease Auditorium
When a group of young girls is found dancing in the woods, and immediately fall ill, no earthly cause can be determined. However, the citizens of Salem suspect that some more sinister force may be at hand. As long-held grudges turn to violent disputes, humiliating secrets are exposed and disseminated, and the line between truth and pretense becomes increasingly blurry, the citizens’ dogged determination to root out evil becomes more dangerous than the evil itself. Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible,” remains as relevant as ever, and carries with it a stern warning: in every community torn by suspicion, the most dangerous threat may be the community itself.

“Evita,” February 16 25, Dale F. Halton Theater
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony awarding-winning musical “Evita” comes to the Halton Theater stage for the first time. With a strong cast of characters torn from the fiery pages of Latin American history, “Evita” represents one of Webber’s most-beloved scores, combining Latin, jazz, pop and more traditional influences.  With such well-known songs as “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” “Buenos Aires” and “Another Suitcase, In Another Hall,” “Evita” has captured audience’s hearts around the world.

On Golden Pond,” April 6 15, Pease Auditorium
“On Golden Pond” is Ernest Thompson’s love story about Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. This touching, funny and warmly perceptive study of a spirited and lovable elderly couple facing their twilight years received some of the most powerful critical and popular acclaim of any new playwright’s debut in Broadway history.

Individual and season tickets will go on sale Sept. 1 to all performances. College and high school students who present a valid student I.D. may purchase a $5 ticket. For more information, ticket prices or to reserve your seat(s), please call CPCC’s SunTrust Box Office at 704.330.6534 or visit tix.cpcc.edu.

RDS Now Making Residency Determinations

The Residency Determination Service (RDS) began making residency determinations for CPCC students at www.NCresidency.org  on March 13. Your residency status should not need to be updated unless you missed two or more consecutive major semesters (Fall and Spring), if you now meet the residency requirements, or if you have experienced a qualifying event such as, but not limited to, relocation across the state border, a military status change, or an INS immigration status change. If you believe your residency status is incorrect, please complete the new RDS interview at www.NCresidency.org for residency reclassification consideration.  More information can be found at http://www.cpcc.edu/admissions/admissions/residency or by contacting the Admissions Office at any campus.
