BLACKWOOD – A new influx of students is about to enter Camden County College, drawn by CCC’s affordable prices and close-to-home feel.

Evan Abrams, a CCC-bound, 18-year-old high school student, is eager for the fall 2011 semester to begin. Although Abrams has not selected a major, he is excited to start his college career at CCC.

“It’s a new beginning, a clean slate, and I am up for the challenge,” says Abrams.

Abrams attends Triton Regional High School in his hometown of Runnemede, New Jersey. With Camden County College’s Blackwood campus minutes away from his house, Abrams can’t deny attending the college.

“It’s very affordable, and you learn as much in your first two years there than you do at any other school. It would be a stupid idea to not attend CCC,” Abrams says.

Abrams holds a part-time job as a petroleum transfer technician at a local Shell gas station. “I love my job,” Abrams says. “I wanted to find a way to keep my old job and still attend school. CCC gave me that option.”

Abrams plans to attend class three or four days a week and use the remaining days to work.
