Through the work of many dedicated men and women, Cuyahoga Community College became a realization. The College was chartered by the State of Ohio on December 5, 1962. In the fall of 1963, Community College opened its doors to over 3,000 students. The Brownell School, one of Cleveland's his tor i c buildings, was painted and modernized to receive the first influx of students . The enrollment increased so rapidly that by the second semester of 63-64 school term, the YWCA had to be used to accommodate the ever-increasing student body. Exten~ions, serving the suburban areas of Cleveland, were opened and night classes made available. When Community opened its doors in the fall of 1964, with an enrollment of 6,500, another building had been added at 626 Huron Road to serve the growing student body. This institutiQn has enabled the people of northeastern Ohio to obtain a high education at a low cost. It

has served to provide the people of Cleveland with useful and educated citizens trained in many fields. Soon, there will be a new and permanent campus on forty acres in the St. Vincent Urban Area. The planned campus is being designed to accommodate a minimum of 15,000 students. It is contemplated that the entire facility will be occupied by September of 1967. Cuyahoga Community College is already the 12th largest college in Ohio and the largest new college in the United States . Community College is dedicated to the concept that "individual talent and integrity constitute the nation's most valuable resources and should therefore be developed and protected to the fullest possible extent." Accordingly, the College has established the goal of providing full educational opportunity for the youth and adults of its community and has instituted the corollary requirement of high standards of performance on the part of all who participate in its benefits.

June 1965 TO THE CLASS OF '65 You belong to Cuyahoga Community College's first graduating class. You are the prime reason why Cuyahoga Community College came into being. You came to a found1 ing institution in September of 1963 as part of the largest initial junior college enrollment in the history of American education. You were one of 3,000 youths and adults, fu11- and part-time students --- all drawn to Cuyahoga Community College for a diversity of reasons. You studied and attended classes in a building which had seen long service as a pub1 ic elementary school. and, later, as a junior high school. You were part of what has been described as the'tlirac1e on 14th Street". It was only fitting that the venerable structure called Brownell should become the starting point for another vitally needed institution, Ohio's first public community college. You will be graduated on June 11. You will take divergent paths. Some of you will go forth prepared for employment in accounting, business management, secretarial science, industrial supervision and other semiprofessional vocations. Some of you will transfer as juniors to senior institutions. Those of you who do will pursue degrees in teaching, law, business administration, medicine, engineering and other fields. Some of you may discontinue your formal education. All of you will leave the College better prepared to assume a meaningful role as an individual, in marriage and as a citizen. We --- the Board of Trustees, the Administration, the Faculty, the Staff are proud of you. You a member of the Class of 165 wishes of us all.

will take with you the best Sincerely,

E ~~-._ --.. ~r1es E. Chapman-

STUDENT CABINET When students look beyond the scope of academic life filled with many pounds of books and more hours of toil and frustration, they look ultimately to the Student Cabinet, the elected student controlling body of the College. All clubs, organizations, fraternities, and sororities are chartered through the Cabinet so that groups of similar interests may unite for fulfillment bf common goals. Its six standing committees and many special committees and appointments influence every phase of a student's life at Tri-C, from formal dances to mixers, from convocations on world affairs to variety shows, and from student policy formulation to recommending college improvements to the administration. Its four officers (Executive Board) and its eight representatives (Student Services Committee) meet weekly to discuss the problems of concern to the student population that occur, particularly those that are peculiar and vital to an evergrowing Community College. Meetings are open to all students, faculty , and administration, all of whom are encouraged to offer

suggestions for improving any phase of life at Tri-C. Student Cabinet also maintains a Student Activities Office which is used by all student organizations on campus. With all its work and worry, the Student Cabinet has functioned efficiently and, although unaware at first of the many problems that would arise, met them with confidence, research and good judgment.

CHOIR "The Sound of Music"-vocal music, that is-has always been (and will always be) a cherished part of college life, from the nostalgic strains of fraternal and sorority groups to the more sophisticated offerings by the college choir. For Tri-C, the choir has been just one phase of public relations, performing in two annual concerts, several guest performances, including those with local radio and television stations. Meeting just two and one-half hours each week, the choir has become an accomplished group through its combined excellent direction and work of its individuals members. For the student, choir provides the opportunity for musical enjoyment, as well as a vehicle for artistic expression. For the college, it provides a performing organization available for appropriate occasions. For the community, it provides another means of enhancing the thriving cosmopolitan culture of greater Cleveland. 70

Problems that would occur if each organization on campus functioned autonomously h a v e been eliminated through the co-ordinating efforts of the Inter-Club Council. The ICC, chaired by the Vice-President of the Student Cabinet, is composed of all club presidents and one elected delegate from each club. Through this system, methods of com-

I. c. c. munication have been improved and conflict of events avoided. To maintain a successful program of student activities, the Council relies on the joint efforts of all its members. It sponsors the College Queen Contest, assists the clubs in planning some of their respective activities, and supports all functions of its member organizations.


Members of Le Quartier Francais, CCC French Club, have opportunities for

exposure to the language through dinner parties at French restaurants, where they must order in French. By taking vacation tours through French-speaking Quebec, Canada, many students gain a working knowledge of the language. One aim of the club is to broaden its members' knowledge of France and French culture by showing movies and slides and celebrating French festivals at small parties.

From Alpha to Zeta, the fraternities and sorontles provide a wide range of activities for all their members. Their crowded schedules include cultural and educational activities as well as social events . Pledges are kept busy with memorizing handbooks and performing the many duties that accompany their "special" status. Since the beginning of the college in September of 1963, the students expressed interest in fraternal organizations. When CCC's first Student Cabinet was established, there was some controversy as to whether or not Greek organizations would be functional at the college. But after the first fraternity was chartered in the Fall of 1964, Greeks gained status and numbers. Of the twenty-two clubs now chartered, over twenty per cent are flying banners with Greek letters. One of the more recent developments has been the formation of an Inter-Greek Council. As the hub of all Greek activities, it hopes to strengthen Inter-Greek relations by fostering a spirit of fellowship, friendship, and fun. Through the work of the Council, there will hopefully be laid a firm foundation of a workable Greek system in a commuter college.

A Word of Thanks Dear Cougars, As editors of the college's first yearbook, we would like to thank everyone who helped m~ke it a succ~ssful publication. It takes a great amount of work and time to complete a project such as a yearbook. Without the help of our staff and the co-operation of many people in COMMUNITY COLLEGE, this book could never have been completed. We would like to personally thank all our editors for having done such an excellent job of leadership. Also, for relinquishing their time and efforts to make the book a success: Dennis Grabowski and Ronald Hardon for the fine job they did handling Clubs and Organizations; Penny Smyth and Marilu Capper whose job was to put together the Sports and Senior Section; Celeste Harkai and Sally Heil for assembling the Faculty Section; Dohn Clark and Tom Brennan for their exact and imaginative art; and Eloise Cain and Rose Schuplinski for their excellent copy writing. Also, sincere thanks to Mr. Richard Karch, our faculty advisor, who was always willing to help us whenever we had difficulties. A special thanks m!.l st be given to Mrs. Kathryn Righter for keeping our records of sales. Being editor of a yearbook is a tremendous job, but with its responsibility is the fun of seeing the development of plans flourish into a yearbook. Rather than tell you how much we have enjoyed it, we especially hope that you, the students of CCC, have enjoyed it, for the main purpose of the "Metropolitan" was to put together memories that all students will look back fondly to in future years. In closing, we would like to thank all, for helping make this first edition of the college IS yearbook a reality. Sincerely, )
