All in a day's work
As a first-year Rhode Island Promise scholar and future student-athlete on CCRI's women's basketball team, Cranston's Talia Thibodeau has made a seamless transition to remote learning this semester.
Within their scope
Through a partnership with the University of Toledo, students in professor Heather Townsend’s microbiology class experienced a unique opportunity to control a multi-million-dollar microscope remotely.
Roll with the changes
Unable to perform in front of live audiences, the CCRI Players launch their 2020-21 theater season amidst a new set of guidelines – and challenges – beginning October 15 with Fool for Love.
A lively experiment
Faculty members in various science departments launched an initiative to purchase at-home lab kits as temporary replacements for in-person labs for students taking courses in both summer sessions.
Making the grade
Forty-five student-athletes at CCRI qualified for the Athletic Director's Honor Roll for posting a 3.0 GPA with 34 of them also earning NJCAA Region XXI academic honors with a GPA of 3.20 or higher.
CCRI is one of 67 colleges nationwide included in the expansion of the Second Chance Pell Experimental Sites Initiative to provide need-based Pell grants to people in state and federal prisons.
