Cape May County Campus Offers Visit a Class Event April 10

March 23, 2012

Cape May County high school students and adult learners will have a chance to visit a class during Atlantic Cape Community College’s “Test Drive” event set for April, National Community College Month.

The college’s Cape May County Campus in Middle Township will open its doors to potential students from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, with a wide range of course offerings to sample.

Classes available include: Principles of Sociology, Introduction to Logic, General Psychology, History of the Western World I and II, Principles of Marketing, and Introduction to Terrorism, a Criminal Justice course. English courses will include Reading/Writing II, Composition I and II, and Creative Writing I. Math and science courses include: Introduction to Algebra, Calculus I and Human Anatomy and Physiology I and II.

 “Since our area high schools are closed for the week, it’s a great time for local students who are considering Atlantic Cape to come in and experience our offerings and meet our outstanding faculty,” said Dr. Patricia Gentile, Dean of the Cape May County Campus. “We also welcome adult learners who want to take our classes for a “test drive” to see if they would like to come back to college or just take a class for personal interest.”

Admissions representatives will be on hand to answer questions and visitors can take a tour of the CMCC building during the event.

Spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To reserve a seat in a class, participants are asked to visit www.atlantic.edu and click on the “Test Drive” box or to call (609) 343-4907.

Atlantic Cape’s Cape May County Campus is located at 341 Court House-South Dennis Road in Cape May Court House. The nearly 68,000-square foot building features two connected wings. The northern wing houses classrooms and a bookstore. The southern wing contains an information commons, tutoring and testing centers, and faculty and administrative offices. Students can earn a degree in Liberal Arts or General Studies entirely at the Cape May County Campus or take classes toward any of the college’s more than 50 degree programs.

The Cape May County Campus has enhanced the educational opportunities for Cape May County students since opening its doors in 2005. Nearly 30 percent of all Cape May County public high school graduates attend Atlantic Cape’s campus in Cape May Court House.
