Capitol Connector

Greetings!

We hope you're staying cool so far during this sweltering July month - this issue of the Connector will have you looking forward to the cool fall months and the many events and important dates coming up!
The Chronicle's New Face
ChronicleThis summer's edition of the Capitol Chronicle sports an inspired new look, complimenting the college's recently revised and updated vision. The new outlook on the college's future will start a wave of new initiatives and projects, and we hope the new format of the college's magazine will spark a new wave of support from our loyal benefactors.
 
In addition, the Chronicle is going greener (the print version is FSC certified and on 50% recycled content including 15% post consumer waste) by going online - new page-turning software allows you to interact with the magazine as never before, and it's compatible with your iPhone, iPad, and other e-readers. Read it now!
