Student Resources Day 2015

              Navigating college can be pretty tricky. Figuring out how you will get to school, meals, crazy class schedules, paying for things and many other competing interest can eat up your time in the first few weeks. This may make it difficult for you to take a moment to see what resources are available. The Student Life office, along with many other campus partners at CPCC, offers a way for you to get plugged into these resources!

Each CPCC campus will offer students the opportunity to meet many of the essential service providers on each campus at their Student Resources Day. Vital services such as Financial Aid, Service Learning, Center for Military Families and Veterans, and many others will be present. This is a great opportunity for new students to see what services are offered at CPCC, as well as a chance to make connections with important staff that could assist with any issues that may come up in your time here at CPCC. Returning students can also take advantage of this event by becoming aware of resources that they may not have known existed on campus. Students that are taking classes on multiple campuses are encouraged to attend this event at each campus to ensure that they are aware of the location and providers of important campus services.

This event is intended to assist student with navigating the sometimes difficult landscape that is college. There are several people at Central Piedmont Community College that are committed to the success of the students. Many of these individuals will be present at this event, so do not miss an opportunity to stop by for some important information and a chance to make the connections that will improve your experience with CPCC!!

Succeeding in college begins with an idea, whether it’s enrolling in a degree program to get your dream job or just taking a few courses for fun. Either way, it’s important to take action early in the semester by establishing, developing, and maintaining relationships at CPCC.

Get to know as many people as possible, especially classmates and professors, by engaging in conversations with others and regularly participating in events on campus. Students should be proactive in building a network of key individuals – family, friends, and CPCC staff – who can help them personally and professionally. The relationships you create, the events you attend, the leadership opportunities you participate in, and the student services you use are all important ingredients in making your dreams a reality.

Your first step toward success should be attending an upcoming Student Resources Day (SRD) at any CPCC campus. This event is the perfect opportunity to meet staff, learn about valuable services and resources on your campus (including your student rights and responsibilities), enjoy free food and giveaways, and make new friends. Take the initiative to connect with staff as soon as possible to create a foundation of support at CPCC. Representatives from Student Life, Career Services, Financial Aid, Service Learning, Family Resource Center, Academic Advising and more will be present to talk about their services and answer your questions. Remember to make the effort to stay connected with these services throughout the year (day in and day out) so that you maintain the level of support you need to be successful at CPCC!

Upcoming SRD Events:

January 22: Harris Campus (9 am)
January 28: Central Campus (10 am)
