Student Author OverviewWhat's This?
Most students that attend CCAC are already part of the workforce. Therefore, a great number of them are enrolled in night classes in order to be able to meet both the job and class hours. Daytime students are typically students that come right out of high school, while students attending nighttime classes are typically returning students. Students go to CCAC to complete their associate degree or to earn credits toward their degrees. Since their main purpose is an academic one, little socialization happens outside of the classroom, except for those students that wish to join the CCAC clubs that offer different activities. However, since most students are returning students, it is difficult for them to meet the demands of a job, night classes, and campus activities. Therefore, returning students are less represented in campus activities.
CCAC has a pretty significant number of international students. Most of them represent Europe, even though Asia and the Middle East are equally represented. Tolerance toward members of other groups is pretty high given that CCAC has active members in their Gay-Straight Alliance, a club whose purpose is self-explanatory.
