News Release - Aug. 22, 2017
Anne Arundel Community College will open to students at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 22.
Because of the delayed opening, the college will provide additional hours to accommodate students. Student Services and the AACC Bookstore will extend hours until 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 28, through Thursday, Aug. 31, at both the Arnold and Arundel Mills locations.
Some divisions also will use temporary staff and student workers to assist walk-in customers at the bookstore, information desk and technical call center during the delay.
The delayed opening will allow all college employees to attend the fall convocation.
Coffee and socializing will commence at 8:30 a.m. in the reception area of the Jenkins Gymnasium. Convocation starts promptly at 9 a.m. and concludes at noon. Attendance is expected from all faculty and staff, who will hear about AACC’s progress with the strategic plan, “Engagement Matters: Pathways to Completion,” and what the college’s priorities for this year are. There also will also be a number of presentations from students, faculty and staff.
“This will be a time for building unity and an opportunity to kick off the academic year with energy and enthusiasm,” said Dr. Dawn Lindsay, AACC president. “This delay provides an opportunity for all college employees to come together in preparation for the new school year to better serve our students.”
