The “Day in the Life” series featured professional speakers from various career fields and gave students the opportunity to find out what it’s like to work in a job which interests them. Speakers included a police chief, licensed counselor, a nurse, physical therapy assistants, a firefighter and a process engineer. KC students and local high school students were able to ask questions and learn about real-life experiences of professionals who had been working in their chosen profession for many years. KC Staff and KCPD also took time during the semester to address students’ concerns about campus safety following several high-profile acts of campus violence at other colleges across the country.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to overlook the walk between classes or the moments spent hanging out in Miller Plaza, but even these seemingly mundane moments are an important part of the KC experience. It is in these moments that the people who comprise KCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rich tapestry of personalities are in action. These are the moments where, if you focus, you can see the faces in the crowd. 60
