Approximately 18,500 students from Mecklenburg County and beyond converged at Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) today, as the college kicked off its 2017 spring semester.

Throughout the day, Student Life representatives were stationed at information tables across all six CPCC campuses to help ease students’ first day of class. Representatives guided students to classes, answered their questions and provided them with important college information, such as valuable campus resources, parking guidelines and available extracurricular activities.

CPCC’s new president, Dr. Kandi Deitemeyer, was on Central Campus, welcoming students who were eager to continue or begin their educational journey at CPCC.

Dr. Deitemeyer succeeds Dr. Tony Zeiss as president of CPCC, a role he held for more than two decades. Dr. Deitemeyer’s career has spanned 24 years in higher education, with 22 of those serving community colleges in North Carolina, Kentucky and Florida. She previously served as president of College of The Albemarle and began her tenure at CPCC on Jan. 2, 2017.
