The Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment would like to thank all those supervisors who have effectively communicated with students and our office when new positions become available and when they have been filled. Our office would also like to remind all supervisors to notify our office when a position has been filled so we may remove the posting from our website and to notify Kristen Clinton the Student Employment and Communications Manager about new employment opportunities for our CC students. By providing our office with a job description to advertise, you are encouraging equal opportunity amongst our campus.

Thank you for all the wonderful employment opportunities that have been provided for our CC students.

In 1984, Alexey Pajitnov, working alone on his out of date hardware, changed video game history. Pajitnov turned a children’s block puzzle into the Tetris, the best selling video game of all time. Come to the Russian House at 3.30pm today, November 2nd, as we explore fascinating history and surprising relevance of Tetris. Enjoy traditional Russian tea and snacks as we dive into a tale that is equal parts history, spy thriller, and 90’s dance party. This is going to be a wild ride.
