If you’re smart and looking for like-minded intellectuals. I invite you to apply for admission into the Honors Program here at CFCC. The Honors Program is an specialized curriculum designed to increase the educational experience of exceptionally talented-students at our college. Admission to the Honors Program (which is free, by the way) gives you access to special privileges that regular CFCC students aren’t offered, such as small group classes (1-2 per semester, 6-12 students per class), special recognition on your college transcript, and exclusive events such as Honors-designated transfer college visits. We also meet regularly as a club to plan get-togethers and engage in volunteer work in our surrounding community. If you’d like to gather more info and apply for the spring semester, here’s our website!
Itâ€™s that time of year again, time to start enjoying this beautiful weather and hanging out at the beach with friends.Â Itâ€™s also time to buckle down and study for your finals while finishing out the school year strong.Â For those of you who are graduating in May or over the summer, life can be hectic.Â The workload involved in preparation for graduation along with everything else going on in life can be somewhat overwhelming. Â I am one of those students graduating in the next few months, and I’ve decided to get organized by making a graduation checklist.Â Iâ€™m sharing my checklist in hopes of easing some of your stress over the last few months as a college student.Â Therefore, allowing you to slow down and appreciate your time and journey with Cape Fear Community College.
COLLEGE GRADUATION CHECKLIST:
File intent to graduate.
Meet with an advisor to register for your final classes. They can look over your program evaluation in order to make sure youâ€™re taking the right classes and on the right path towards graduation.
Keep track of the number of classes left, exam dates and project finals.Â The final stretch is very important.Â Donâ€™t slack now.Â Do well!
Attend the CFCC job fair April 24thÂ at the N. Campus from 11-2.Â Dress well.
Search and apply for career worthy jobs.
Send invites to family members and close friends who want to attend your graduation.
Order your cap and gown.Â Also, order any regalia that you might want from your school club or honor society.
Go shopping for graduation worthy clothes.
Enjoy the big day.Â Take many pictures.Â Give thanks to those who have helped you along the way.
Celebrate!Â You have earned it.
At CFCC we have a wide range of options for taking classes. You can take evening classes that meet once a week for three hours or a daytime class that meets three times a week for an hour each time. We also have some online options.
When using WebAdvisor for selecting classes pay attention to the following items:
- If the section starts with the letter I â€“ the class is completely internet based.
- If the section is DY â€“ this is a hybrid class based at the Downtown Campus. You will likely meet with your instructor only once a week, but complete a majority of your work online.
- If the section is NY â€“ this is a hybrid class based at North Campus.
Other ways to know you are registering for an online class:
- Room: cfcc.edu
- Classroom hours: to be announced
- Times: to be announced
You must have regular use of a computer and internet access. You will have to discipline yourself to manage your time and submit assignments when required. Deadlines can be any day and hour.
In addition to submitting work via email or uploaded files the online instructors use discussion boards. The quality of your online discussions in these forms is an important part of your grade.
The critical item to remember about online classes is the enrollment verification.
The enrollment verification is an assignment your instructor will post on the first day of class. It will be something as simple as, â€œstate your name, program of study and what you hope to learn in this classâ€™. Do not skip this assignment; you will be dropped from the class automatically. There is an audit process that must be completed at the beginning of each semester. Your instructors for seated classes can complete this audit process with attendance records. Your online instructor uses the enrollment verification assignment.
Online classes can be a great way to manage your educational goals. Donâ€™t be afraid to try one. Just remember to ask for help right away if you donâ€™t understand how something works.

The Student Ambassador Scholarship has given so much to me. Â I’ve received not only the gift of education, but a chance to fulfill my career goals and be a part of a team that I can be proud of. Â My name isÂ JessicaÂ Hassler, and I’m proud to call myself a CFCC Student Ambassador.
As a student at Cape Fear Community College and a true Wilmantonian, I am truly excited about the events that go on in our Community.Â Â The Azalea Festival is one of my favorite yearly events that takes place in down town Wilmington.Â Spring is such beautiful time of the year around here with all of the blooming flowers and what better way to celebrate the fabulous weather than with a street fair, concerts, and community involvement!Â Â All of the Street fairs are local venders, so it is nice to come out and support the businesses around the area that we live in.Â Â This has been an ongoing event year after year and I think it is a great tradition to start attending with family and friends!Â Â A lot of the events go on right around or on the Cape Fear Community College campus so having this event is a great way to show off our campus!
Cape Fear Community College, one of the top community college in the United States. This reputation is well earned for a broad range of offerings. Courses, which for most transfer students will be the same or quite similar to what they will be experience in a four-year university but for a fraction of the price. It is well understood that college classes are not easy but CFCC provides all their students with centers were they could get the extra help students need to succeed in their classes. Any class that is offered at cape fear has a tutoring center or specific tutor assign for the class. The Downtown Wilmington Campus Math Lab is located at L-219, L-218 for writing and computer used and N-407 for science. Helpful and knowledgeable tutors are always available so students can drop by, after signing the proper paper work, or ask for a one-on-one tutor. The best part about it is that it is free for all CFCC students. Â Â
Every day each individual makes decisions, chocolate or vanilla? Life or death? Some are simple and then some tend to be complicated and require plenty of thought. In the spirit of the moment people sometimes make drastic decisions on temporary feelings. Make wise decisions because one never knows how their present simple minded actions will affect their future goals and aspirations. Decision making is a vital leadership and professional skill. When making decisions take the time fully analyze the choices being made. I urge everyone to realize that not every decision made is the right one but to not let that one bad choice hinder their future. In a sense there are no wrong or right decisions some just seem to be the better choice at the time. Hindsight might not be able to correct past mistakes, but it will aid improved decision making in the future. The steps to making effective decisions are to reduce more complicated decisions to simpler steps, see how any decisions are arrived at, and plan decisions making to meet deadlines. Remember these steps when making upcoming decisions and also remember to not let one bad choice control your future.
