Student Resources Day is a phenomenal example of how CPCC supports the concept of a learning centered college. Barry Gilmore developed the idea after talking with students throughout the semester in his role as Student Life Coordinator. He realized students were not familiar with all the services CPCC had to offer. Barry has a unique view. He is a 1995 CPCC graduate earning an AA in Business Administration and continued his education at Queens University to complete Bachelors in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing.

The first Student Resources Day was held at the Levine Campus in 1999 and has grown to include all CPCC campuses. Barry says: “The key to building a Community of Learning is all the services coming together in a casual and non-threatening environment.” The initial attraction for students is fun and food, but once engaged students realize the many services they can utilize while attending CPCC.
