Dr. Scott Dalrymple, the college’s 17th president, is laying the groundwork for the preservation and beautification of the main campus. In 2016, a central walkway will take you from Southwell Complex to Dulany Hall. One of the most visible opportunities to be a part of this effort is by engraving a brick. Celebrate graduation with an inscription! Engraved bricks can leave a lasting memory of your years at CC, honor a favorite faculty member, show your Cougar Pride, inspire future students with words or a quote to live by, and even congratulate a graduate. Bricks will be placed near the new fountain centered in front of Williams Hall, the college's first building. Limited spaces are available. Placement will be first-come, first-served, so reserve your brick before space runs out. To get started visit ChooseCC.org/brick.
