ounselors and professors have volunteered to decentralize their office hours to serve time in what is becoming more popular on campus; The HUB.

The HUB is an intimate learning environment providing a one stop shop approach to assisting students with their academic and career development needs. Students have the opportunity to pop-in and receive

help with a course assignment, meet with an instructor, or discuss majors and find out about various career paths. The HUB also provides educational planning for the students, and for the college. It brings faculty, counselors and students together in one place for the same purpose; student success.

The HUB is located in the Physical Science Building,

room 107 Mondays 11:15 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and Tuesdays 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. If you would like to participate in this innovative learning environment, and you are a CCC counselor or faculty, contact Dr. Katie Krolikowski at (510) 215-3990 or n

C hancellor Benjamin Study A broad Scholarship Awarded…


ongratulations to Melodie Williams on winning the Chancellor Benjamin Study Abroad Scholarship (CBSAS) to Florence, Italy. The scholarship is awarded to a CCC student who would not normally be able to participate in a study abroad program due to economic hardship and who typically may be from groups underrepresented in U.S. study aboard programs (as defined by the Gilman Scholarship Study Abroad program for community college students). “I’m so excited and thankful for this opportunity. I have never been out of the country before, I’m so happy,” says Melodie. Melodie Williams will travel with a Northern California Study Abroad Consortium which was founded in 1964, and since then, over 1.5 million students have participated in these cultural exchanged programs.

The Florence, Italy trip is the most popular at CCC. The cultural and historical impact of Florence is filled with world-renowned art, architecture, and friendly people to interact with. Students enjoy this academic and social experience that changes their lives forever. Melodie Williams is a full-time student at Contra Costa College taking liberal arts courses and looking forward to transferring to a 4-year university next year. n Spring 8 2014
