CAMPUS LIFE

LIANA MUIA • 2016 GRADUATE

What I love about CCBC is it was a great transitioning point for me between high school and going away to a four year institution. You get small class sizes where you can really learn something from your classes instead of sitting in an auditorium with 200 other students. Also, CCBC is

affordable and has a great diversity among students. I love all the opportunities available here.

The most important thing to know when starting out as a freshmen is to be yourself and don’t let anyone or anything hold you back. If you want to join a club, go for it. If you want to take a creative writing class but it doesn’t apply to your major, don’t let that stop

you. This is the best start to your future. Get all the experience you can.

CAMPUS LIFE Our campus is buzzing with activity at every moment. Whether you’re athletically, technologically, politically, or socially inclined, CCBC has something here for you.

CHRISTIAN HYRB DUAL ENROLLMENT STUDENT THROUGH CCBC’S AVIATION ACADEMY

The Aviation Academy got me thinking about a career in flying. I’m getting the knowledge I need and experience in actually learning how to fly. The classes are so interesting, which makes it easier to learn. I go to CCBC excited about the

possibility of flying. The program is a must if you want to be in aviation.
