CSN Chronicle May 6, 2021

It has been over a year now since CSN began remote work and instruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic — and what an incredible year it has been. Despite the challenges, we have come together as a team to ensure that our students come first, our CSN Family remains safe, and our community can continue counting on us.

We will see a record-sized graduating class this month, we will see a gradual return to campus for our faculty and staff this summer, and we will see thousands of students in our classrooms this summer and fall. It is an exciting time at CSN.

I could not be more proud of the entire CSN Family for your efforts day in and day out. On behalf of the students who depend on us all, thank you for another successful academic year.
