Virtual Student Resources Week

Student Life is excited to host the first virtual Student Resources Week. We recognize the challenges that can come with taking classes remotely. Join us for Student Resources week, September 8 through 11, to learn from the many different resources the college offers to help you succeed as a student at Central Piedmont.

Throughout the week, you can watch videos about each support resource on FlipGrid. In their video, each support service will introduce themselves and what they offer. Student Life staff will also be available on Zoom each day from 3:30–4:30 p.m. to answer your questions.

As part of participating in Student Resources Week, you can enter to win one of three Apple AirPods with wired charging case. 

To participate, join us for the Zoom meeting each day, or go directly to FlipGrid to submit any questions regarding the resources available. You will need to sign in using your Central Piedmont login credentials. Learn more about Student Resources Week.

For more information, please contact John.Gomez@cpcc.edu.
