Did You Know?
Space, Place, and Stories
By: Edwina Welch

At the Center we try to create and also capture these moments because people tell and re-tell the stories these pictures show. Do you see yourself in these photos?  Some of you might be wondering why the picture has a pole dead center. If you were around during the first ten years of the Cross, then you will know this pole, this place, dinners, dances, and other events that happened here. I have it on high authority that the pole has stories to tell, but now it only lives in the memories and experiences of alumni. Click here to continue reading.
What stories do you have to tell? Visit our Tumblr and be sure to attach #ccctb20 to any of your social media posts (Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). Get excited and be a part of our project of celebrating 20 years in the making of CCC love and community. For more information please contact Edwina Welch at ewelch@ucsd.edu.
