Virtual Events Link Information

Due to the increase in positive COVID-19 cases in and around Wake County and regulations issued by the Raleigh City Council, the College has cancelled the previously scheduled celebration parade. While we are very disappointed, we believe this is in the best interest of safety and well-being of all involved. We look forward to seeing you at the virtual celebration events.
