Anne Arundel Community College will open to students at 2 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 16.
Because of the delayed opening, during the month of August the college will provide additional hours to accommodate students. Student Services and the AACC Bookstore will extend hours until 7 p.m. at both the Arnold and Arundel Mills locations.
The delayed opening will allow all college employees to attend the fall convocation. Attendance is expected from all faculty and staff, who will hear updates 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.
“Convocation is a time to celebrate our dedicated faculty and staff, and provides an opportunity to kick off the new academic year with energy and enthusiasm,” said Dr. Dawn Lindsay, AACC president.
