Introduction

CPCC has a rich history of innovative programs and community involvement. Around this time last year we hosted our first annual “THE Geek Festival” event at CPCC. Now is the time for an exciting repeat performance! We invite you “geek” and be “chic” with us on 9/6/2006 at CPCC’s Levine campus in Matthews.

THE Geek Fest is an exciting and eclectic annual celebration of the “geek” in all of us; an event designed to educate the hearts and minds of our students and community by highlighting and celebrating the creative and exciting innovations of new technology, media, and industry. Remember, geek is chic. It is no longer only limited to the technical aspects of life. [more]
