Finish Strong, Finals Start Monday

Sunday, May 6 is the last day of regular classes. Finals begin Monday, May 7 through Thursday, May 10. Click here for a complete final exam schedule. If you are in need of tutoring services, don’t wait until it’s too late. The CGCC Learning Center offers free tutoring on a variety of subjects. Stop by the office today and make an appointment.
We know finals week can be stressful. Here are some tips to help you succeed:

1.Ask for help.
The CGCC Learning Center offers tutoring services on a drop-in basis for select courses. This is a great way to get primed for your toughest exams. Check out locations, hours and more information here.
2. Create your own study guide.
While many teachers provide a study guide, creating your own can help you understand the material in your own way. Try starting with an outline of the most important information and build from there.
3. Ask questions.
Your teachers are there to help! Ask them questions regarding the material and the exam so that you’re prepared when exam time arrives.
4. Attend the review session.
Review sessions offer vital information on exam format, what will be on the exam and key concepts on which you should focus your studies.
5.Take breaks.
You won’t be able to memorize or comprehend all the material at once. Balance is key – ensure that you reward learning with break times to recharge and relax.
Remember to get a good night's rest the night before your exams and eat a healthy breakfast the morning of. Breakfast fuels the body! All the best on your finals.

Wednesday, March 28, 2018
7 – 9:30 p.m.

Chandler-Gilbert Community College

Community Room, 1242

By the time she was 19, Joan Trumpauer Mulholland had participated in dozens of sit-ins and protests, was shot at, attacked, and put on death row for being a Freedom Rider. Heralded as an unsung hero, she participated in some of the most iconic and pivotal moments of the American Civil Rights Movement. She was a crusader who integrated Tugaloo College (an HBCU), was the first white student in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., trained white activists and dedicated her career to youth education.

One Book Lecture | Sonia Shah

Sonia Shah, Author of Pandemic: Tracing Contagions from Cholera to Ebola and Beyond

March 26, 2018 7-9pm, Public Lecture with Q&A, Agave 1240-1242. 

Over the past fifty years, more than three hundred infectious diseases have emerged or reemerged in new territory. Experts around the world are bracing for a deadly, disruptive pandemic. In Pandemic: Tracking Contagions, from Cholera to Ebola and Beyond, prizewinning journalist Sonia Shah reveals how that could happen, by drawing parallels between cholera---one of history’s most deadly and disruptive pandemic-causing pathogens---and the 
new diseases that stalk us today. As Shah traces each stage of cholera’s dramatic journey from harmless microbe to world-changing pandemic, she reports on the pathogens that have followed cholera’s footsteps---from the MRSA bacterium that besieges her own family to the never-before-seen killers emerging from China’s wet markets, the surgical wards of New Delhi, the slums of Port-au-Prince, and the suburban backyards of the East Coast. A true story that is both gripping and alarming, Pandemic delves deep into the convoluted science, strange politics, and the checkered history of one of the world’s deadliest diseases, offering a prelude to the future that’s impossible to ignore.

Sonia Shah is a science journalist and prize-winning author. Her writing on science, politics, and human rights has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Foreign Affairs, Scientific American, and elsewhere, and she has been featured on Radiolab, Fresh Air, and, where her talk “Three Reasons We Still Haven’t Gotten Rid of Malaria” has been viewed by more than a million people around the world. Her 2010 book The Fever was long-listed for the Royal Society’s Winton Prize for Science Books.

CGCC Students Selected as 2018 Coca-Cola Gold Scholars

Hats off to Heather Robinson, Kimberly Redding, and Lauren Allison for recently being selected as a Gold Scholar on Coca-Cola’s 2018 Academic Team. All three recipients will receive a $1,500 scholarship from the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation to assist in their pursuit of a higher education.

“Congratulations to Heather, Kimberly and Lauren for being named to Coca-Cola’s 2018 Academic Team,” said William Guerriero, interim president at CGCC. “We are extremely proud of your academic accomplishments and are excited to see what the future holds for each of you.”

Heather, a nursing student at the Williams Campus, is working on a bachelor’s degree in nursing at Northern Arizona University and hopes to become a Labor and Delivery nurse at Mercy Gilbert Hospital.

Following graduation, she plans to attend the American Flyer’s mechanic/pilot cross training internship program and obtain private, instrument, and commercial flight ratings.

This program is sponsored by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and is administered by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

CGCC Performing Arts Department Presents “Goodnight Desdemona” and Other Spring Performances

Debuting at CGCC this week is the theatrical comedic performance “Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)” by Ann-Marie MacDonald. The play features Constance Ledbelly, a young English literature professor from Queen's University as she goes on a subconscious journey of self-discovery.

The comedy is a feminist revision of Shakespeare’s Othello and Romeo and Juliet and takes the audience from a dusty office in Canada’s Queen’s University into the fraught and furious worlds of two of Shakespeare’s best-known tragedies and turns them upside-down. The show will run March 22-24 at the Arnette Scott Ward Performing Arts Center located at the Pecos Campus.

Rounding out the CGCC spring theatre lineup is Clark Gesner’s beloved musical “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown”, based on Charles Schulz’s famous comic strip, Peanuts.  This musical comedy runs April 26-28 and features the entire Peanuts gang including Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Sally, Schroder and Snoopy in a variety of vignettes and songs.

This year's Spring Performing Arts lineup also features a variety of vocal and instrumental music concerts.  Jazz Night, the very popular event featuring the CGCC Jazz Combo, Big Band and Vocal Jazz Ensemble, will be happening on April 16. For something different, sit outside the amphitheater, enjoy the beautiful Arizona weather, and join the Jazz Combo for Midday Jazz at 11:30 a.m. on April 4.  For those of you who love guitar and percussion sounds, the Strum and Drum Concert on April 23 will be right for you.

If you’re looking for a night of fun and laughter, attend a Comedy Improv show with “Off the Cuff.”  This show has featured the fresh and funny talents of student and community member comedians, for the past 18 years. Enjoy ridiculously funny, family-friendly, game-style improv comedy on April 6 at 7:00 pm.

If comedy isn’t your thing, maybe dance is. See a variety of dance styles choreographed by creative dance faculty at the Faculty Choreographed Dance Showcase on April 13 and 14.

The CGCC Combined Choirs will perform Beethoven’s 9th Symphony on March 25 alongside the Chandler Symphony Orchestra at the Chandler Center for the Arts. Other musical performances include the Vocal Major Recitals March 26 as well as the Spring Choral Concerts on March 27.

All shows are open to the public and most are free.

For ticketed events, tickets can be purchased online or at the CGCC Box Office located on the Pecos Campus. The box office window opens one hour before show time. Attendees can purchase available tickets or pick up reserved tickets from Will Call. Student prices are offered to those with a valid student ID. Doors open a half hour prior to the performance.
