Who are these masked women, welcoming Suncat students back to Main Campus for fall semester? From left to right, they are Aline Gonzales, CNM events manager; Amy Ballard, CNM dean of Applied Tecchnology; and Liz Encinias, CNM Security officer. The trio were among a group of CMM officials stationed in front of Ted Chavez Hall, on hand to direct students to class on Monday, August 31st, and to inform students of campus protocols, and pass out hand sanitizer and maps.
According to Gonzales, the first two days of a semester are typically designated as Suncat Days. Applied Technology is one subject area that has quite a few in-person classes on campus, while most classes remain on-line.
Meanwhile, Carmen Avitia, a Math and Science tutor at CNM for the TRIO program, was available to answer students’ questions by W Building, in the courtyard in front of the Coal Avenue Theater.
