As a part of our school's Halloween traditions, students have the option to wear an appropriate costume to school on Thursday, October 31st. As always, students are not required to wear a costume. For anyone that plans to wear a costume to school, please adhere to the following guidelines: Costumes may not include a mask. All costumes accessories deemed dangerous or resemble weapons are not permitted. Costumes of excessive gore are not acceptable. Please be aware that students not following the guidelines, or whose costume is in violation of the school's dress code will be asked to change. We look forward to seeing all of the fun and creative costumes for Halloween.

Community Program: SUNY Corning Community College Open House
SUNY Corning Community College is hosting its annual Fall Open House on October 26th. Registration starts at 11am and the program starts at 1pm. You can register online here. Special activities for Early Arrivers, including complimentary lunch (try out the dining hall food!) Students can talk about options for majors with faculty, talk about campus life with student ambassadors, talk about career services with staff and tour campus and see the facilities first-hand. Not sure about a major? There's a presentation for that: what to do if you're not sure. Does paying for college sound scary? There's a presentation for that too. Want to transfer? You guessed it ... the Provost will walk guests through our agreements that make earning a bachelor's, master's, and even a doctoral degree seamless -- for students who start at SUNY CCC simply because of the agreements we have in place with top-tier institutions (St. John Fisher College, Upstate Medical College, University at Buffalo, and more!)
