SHADOW A CC STUDENT FOR A DAY
Want to experience a day-in-the-life of a Hilltopper? Schedule a Shadow Day. Shadow Days give future Toppers an opportunity to “shadow” a current CC Student, class-to-class during a school day. Individual Shadow Days are scheduled by appointment only through the Admissions Department.
