man reading at podiumAtlantic Cape Community College was one of 19 community colleges across the state hosting a series of campus-based activities during the statewide NJ Community College Completion Challenge (NJC4) this week.

Sponsored by the New Jersey Council of County Colleges’ Center for Student Success, Kean University and the New Jersey Education Association, the NJC4 initiative is an effort to increase the number of community college students completing their associate degrees and certificates, so they have the credentials they need to successfully transfer to four-year colleges and universities to earn their bachelor’s degrees and enter careers that provide family-sustaining wages.

The Atlantic City and Cape May County campuses held similar events throughout the week.

Phi Theta Kappa C4 Rally Tomorrow at Mays Landing Campus

Come out tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. to celebrate Phi Theta Kappa’s “Commit to Complete” initiative in the cafeteria of the Mays Landing Campus!

Statistics show the surest way for anyone to land a job in their chosen field is to finish college and earn a degree or certificate. That’s exactly what students at Atlantic Cape are promising to do–signing a mass pledge to complete their associate degrees in three years before leaving community college for transfer or to enter the job market.

Thursday’s rally includes performances by the choir and cheerleaders, alumni speakers, essay winners, awards and light refreshments.
