students readingWhat are the secrets to college success? First-year students can effectively prepare for the college experience by attending “Be FIRST in College,” a free workshop being offered at Wright College on Monday, August 18.  The workshop will provide students with tips for improving study skills as well as the opportunity to participate in “sample” classes, meet other new students, and more!

Through “Be FIRST,” students will get a chance to participate in two abbreviated 45-minute classes, where they will be introduced to the pace of college classes and some of the essential elements of the academic subjects taught.  After the classes, students will work together on practice assignments given to them by the professors whose classes they attended.  The event is completely free and refreshments will be provided.

Claire Boeck, a tutor in Wright College’s Writing Center, is overseeing the program, which aligns with Wright College’s and City College’s commitment to fostering success as part of students’ First Year Experiences (FYE). “Building friendships, forming study groups, figuring out how much time to budget for homework, and acclimating to the atmosphere of a college classroom are all things students can do before the semester starts by attending ‘Be FIRST,’” Claire says. “Succeeding in college is easier with friends and study partners for help and support.  If students are nervous about their first day of college, this is a great opportunity to eliminate those first-day jitters.”

Students have the choice of attending one of two sessions on August 18: 9am-12:30pm OR 1-4:30pm and may register by August 16 by clicking here.

Students won’t want to miss this opportunity to start their college experience off “Wright!” – and learn ways to succeed in the first year and beyond!

Please share this information with students!

A Q&A with Claire Boeck, “Be FIRST in College” Program Coordinator

What is “Be FIRST”?

“Be FIRST in College” is a free workshop designed to help students experience a college classroom for the first time and meet fellow students, so that they start their first semester of college feeling prepared, comfortable, and connected – to other students, to student resources and to the Wright College community.  “FIRST” stands for “Focused Individuals Ready to Start Today” because that is what the graduates of “Be FIRST” in College will be. 

Who should participate in “Be FIRST”?

Incoming students who want to feel as prepared as possible on their first day of college and who want to be ready to hit the ground running for a successful college experience.

I’m registered at another City Colleges school – can I attend “Be FIRST” at Wright?

Yes! All City Colleges students are welcome to attend “Be FIRST” and will find beneficial information in the workshop.

I haven’t registered for classes yet – can I still attend “Be FIRST”?

Yes; “Be FIRST” is open to all registered students or anyone interested in registering and who wants to better understand what the college experience will be.

Is “Be FIRST” open to Adult Education students (ESL or GED)?

Yes; “Be FIRST” is open to all students who want a better understanding of the classroom and/or college experience.

What will I learn at “Be FIRST”?

At “Be FIRST” you will experience the pace, intensity, subjects, and structures you can encounter in college classes. You will also learn roughly how much homework is assigned so you can better estimate how much time to budget for schoolwork during the regular semester.

How is “Be FIRST” different from New Student Orientation?

“Be FIRST” actually puts you in a classroom and provides a preview of the subjects you will take in college. New Student Orientation is a detailed overview of college procedures and resources, not a firsthand classroom experience.

What classes can I sample?

You may choose two of the following classes: Sociology, Biology, Economics, and Humanities.

What will the assignments be like?

That is up to the instructor. The purpose of the assignments is to help students understand how much time to budget for schoolwork. Also, since students will be encouraged to work on the assignments together, participants will have the opportunity to meet other students and form potential study groups for the future.

I can’t attend “Be FIRST” – are there other ways I can prepare for my first year in college?

Extended Orientation, available through Blackboard, also highlights college resources. You may also register for the College Success Course.

Do you have any other suggestions for succeeding in college?

Attend “Be FIRST,” budget your time wisely, and always be confident in your ability to succeed!

Please contact Claire Boeck with any questions!

On June 25, Wright College joined 11 Illinois community colleges and the Governor’s Office in raising awareness for electric vehicle (EV) technology, infrastructure and network success. Click here for images from the event.

EV Arrival

Wright College students, faculty and staff welcomed the statewide Electric Vehicle Road Trip on June 25. Click here for more pictures from the event.

Dozens of Wright College students, faculty, staff and electric vehicle enthusiasts greeted a caravan of nine electric vehicles on Wednesday, June 25, which were participating in a statewide tour of community colleges with EV charging stations.  Wright College was the 10th and penultimate stop on the three-day, 11-college tour, designed to raise awareness for and celebrate the EV network throughout Illinois.

Wright College President Potash was among those who greeted and welcomed the tour participants. “Congratulations to Road Trip participants on logging more than 500 miles over the past three days,” said President Potash. “Our participation in the EV Road Trip is consistent with City Colleges of Chicago’s and Wright College’s continuing commitment to sustainability. From energy efficiency initiatives to sustainable building renovations and improvements across City Colleges to the environmental programs and practices here at Wright, our goal is to make the campus more sustainable while exposing our students to the technologies, designs, and concepts they will be working and living with in the near future.”

The EV caravan congregated around Wright’s electric vehicle charging station, located in the college’s Parking Lot D, just south of the parking structure. The participating vehicles charged up before heading to the tour’s endpoint at the College of Lake County in Grayslake.

Wright debuted its charging station in 2012, the result of a collaboration between the City of Chicago, City Colleges of Chicago, 38th Ward Alderman Timothy Cullerton, and the Berman family of neighboring Mid-City Nissan. The station is open for public use, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. There is currently no fee for usage.

Addressing the event participants, Dave Inman, the director of Wright’s Environmental Technology Program said, “We hope this public use of the Wright College Charging Station – one of about 75 within the City limits – is just the beginning. We look forward to the day when our region will have many more stations to accommodate a growing number of alternatively fueled vehicles.”

The electric vehicle charging station is one of many examples of Wright College’s commitment to sustainability. Wright College offers associate degree and basic certificate programs in environmental technology, as well as a program in Building Energy Technologies, which helps building engineers and operations staff get certified in energy monitoring. These programs have been recognized by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).

Wright recently introduced an Urban Agroecology course, which addresses current local food production challenges and explores opportunities and efforts for sustainable agriculture in the Chicagoland urban environment. Other examples of Wright’s campus sustainability initiatives include:

  • The Learning Resources Center’s roof replacement project, which will double the building’s insulation, increase natural light and greatly improve energy efficiency.
  • The photovoltaic array on the façade of the garage – a teaching tool in Wright College’s Building Energy Technologies certificate program.
  • The campus community garden, apiary, campus arboretum, and green roof and solar water heating system on the roof of the Science Building.

Eleven Illinois community colleges involved with the Illinois Green Economy Network (IGEN) participated in the Electric Vehicle Road Trip, held June 23-25. IGEN is a consortium of all 39 Illinois community college districts across the state working to grow the green economy of Illinois.

“The electric vehicle has come a long way in just the last five years,” said Lewis and Clark Community College Director of Sustainability Nate Keener, lead organizer for the event. “With this trip, we hope to show that it actually is possible to drive great distances in electric and hybrid vehicles.”

The EV Road Trip started at the southernmost “charged” community college, i.e. the southernmost community college with an electric vehicle charge station – John A. Logan College in Carterville – and proceeded north toward the northernmost “charged” community college, the College of Lake County in Grayslake. The cars were staffed by community college sustainability professionals, students, and/or IGEN staff. Along the way, the road trip stopped at each community college with an EV Charge Station.

The effort was supported by the Illinois Governor’s and Lieutenant Governor’s Offices, the Illinois Office of Tourism, the Illinois Green Economy Network, Nissan, Chargepoint, and Green Wheels USA.

This stop, scheduled for 2:30pm, will be the only one in the city of Chicago and the penultimate stop before the Road Trip ends at the College of Lake County in Grayslake.

Wright College students, faculty and staff are invited to cheer on the Road Trip participants as they arrive from Triton College in River Grove and charge up before departing for their final destination. President Potash will welcome the participants. Eric Heineman, Governor Quinn’s sustainability director, will be on hand to discuss EV infrastructure in Illinois; he will be joined by Department of Energy representative and Clean Cities Coordinator Samantha Bingham.

Welcome Bonnie Kang!

Welcome Bonnie Kang!

Effective June 9, 2014, Bonnie Kang will join Wright College as Interim Dean, College to Careers (C2C), Information Technology.

Over the past six months, Bonnie – in her most recent role as Project Team Leader at CCC’s Center for Operational Excellence – has been instrumental in helping Wright’s C2C program make significant progress and reach key milestones. She has been a catalyst, a manager, and a partner – all while also helping CCC’s work with CPS’ Early College STEM Schools.  Faculty across the District have come together with Bonnie, and a great result is that  we expect to have available for the Fall semester updated courses and new curricula for three IT pathways, including Networking (AAS), Web Development (both AAS and AS/Transfer), and Computer Science Transfer (AS). The curricula for these pathways are currently under review by the Illinois Community College Board; we anticipate word of approval in the coming months.

Bonnie began her career in finance and later attended business school to transition to more strategic roles in the retail industry, including project management. She moved to higher education to apply her skills and experience toward shaping positive change. Prior to joining City Colleges, Bonnie worked at Sears as a Special Projects Manager, where she led turnaround initiatives for Sears and Kmart Home. Prior to that, she worked at Prada USA in New York as a Strategic Planner, helping to create a successful growth strategy for the Miu Miu brand.Bonnie has also worked as a Senior Corporate Financial Analyst for Ernst and Young in San Francisco.

Originally from Northern California, Bonnie holds an MBA from Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business, as well as a B.S. in Business Administration and a B.A. in Political Science from the University Of California, Berkeley. Bonnie has two young boys, ages one and three; she calls them her greatest joy.  Away from work, she enjoys spending time with them at the parks, biking, and discovering the city’s neighborhoods and attractions.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and City Colleges of Chicago launched College to Careers to ensure Chicagoans are prepared for careers in growing fields and are able to seize the tens of thousands of new job openings over the next decade. The C2C program forges partnerships between City Colleges and industry leaders to better align City Colleges’ curricula with the demand in growing fields. These partnerships provide City Colleges’ students access to real-world experience via teacher-practitioners, internships and top-notch facilities, and offer City Colleges’ students and graduates a first pass at job opportunities.

City Colleges is enhancing its occupational programs in six fast-growing fields. Each program is headquartered at one of the City Colleges: Healthcare at Malcolm X College; Transportation, Distribution & Logistics (TDL) at Olive-Harvey College; Business, Professional Services & Entrepreneurship at Harold Washington College; Information Technology at Wilbur Wright College; Advanced Manufacturing at Richard J. Daley College; and Culinary and Hospitality at Kennedy-King College.

Wright’s C2C program is poised to provide students with even more educational and economic opportunities in one of the city’s highest growth industries, information technology.

“We are very fortunate to have someone with Bonnie’s vision, skills, and project management experience leading and guiding the program and its related partnerships, as well as contributing to Wright’s leadership team,” said Wright College President David Potash.

On Friday I was honored to speak to the GED and Certificate Completers for Harold Washington College, Truman College, and Wright College at a Recognition Ceremony. It was a moving event, really quite wonderful, and my remarks follow.

Ladies, gentlemen, faculty, staff, honored guests, friends, family, and above all, students, Welcome to City College’s Adult Education and Certification Recognition Ceremony for Truman College, Harold Washington College, and Wright College. We are delighted that you are with us tonight to celebrate excellence and student success.

My name is David Potash and I am president of Wilbur Wright College. College presidents have many duties. We plan budgets, hire faculty and staff, make compelling arguments for more resources, and represent our colleges in the community. It is a tremendous job that brings challenges and opportunities on a daily basis. And of all the many responsibilities and functions, none is as joyful, as important, as an event like this. Calling out and celebrating you – students who complete and succeed – is a wonderful thing. So to all of tonight’s completers – thank you and congratulations.

Congratulations also to the family members and friends who have offered support, sacrificed and can now celebrate this achievement with their loved ones. Also, I want to recognize the faculty members for the pivotal role they have played in these students’ lives. Your quality instruction helps connect students to better job prospects and increased educational opportunities. And so, too, the staff that have created a supportive student-focused environment.

I want to acknowledge tonight’s student speaker, Jose Mendez, who has succeeded on all levels of our Adult Education programs. Jose started as an ESL student and quickly moved to the GED program, which he completed within one year. He is a model student, always in class, always on time, and a hard worker. Jose just recently started the Gateway Program to transition to college credit courses and is now attending his first college class. Again, thank you Jose, for your remarks. We wish you continued success.

The journey that you have taken has not been easy. We all have important responsibilities, tasks that must be completed, chores that must be done. That is how we lead our lives. What you have done is take on additional work. You assigned more to yourself – you gave yourself challenges. That takes courage. That takes commitment.  That takes vision and inner strength.

Maya Angelou, the great poet and essayist who passed away earlier this week and who found success after facing many struggles, once said, “Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.”

Today, we give pause to acknowledge you, to celebrate what you have done, and the personal strength and perseverance it took to get here.

Abraham Solis-Jaramillo is celebrating his GED today. Abraham started his journey more than 10 years ago, taking ESL and GED classes. When life got in the way – as it often does – he had to put his studies on hold until he was ready to return 2 years ago. This time, he was all in. While attending his GED classes, Abraham worked a job that started at 4:30 in the morning. When work ended, he attended his evening GED classes, which wrapped up at 9:30 at night. At 4:30 the next morning, he would begin the day again, doing his homework on the bus during his 2-hour commute. Last summer, Abraham enrolled in the Gateway Program to transition to college credit courses and is now a member of the Gateway Scholars Club. He is also working on completing his associate degree. Abraham recently joined the staff in the Adult Education department, where he helps new students register and begin their own paths to educational opportunity. Thank you and congratulations, Abraham.

Let’s face it – times are tough. There are no easy paths to success and what was financially secure and stable a generation ago may not be today. Companies change and jobs change. There are very sure things. To find happiness and a career, ongoing education is a necessity.

Tempess Boyle – who is celebrating receiving her Certificate in Basic Nursing Assistant today – understands this. She graduated from Robert Morris College with an associate degree in cosmetology. She came to Wright College to explore a new career direction in Nursing. After her clinical experiences, and with the guidance of her instructors, she realized that nursing indeed is the right fit for her. As a wife and mother of three children, she has had to juggle schedules and home responsibilities, but she was determined to complete the program.  And, she did. Tempess is currently scheduled to take her State Certification exam for CNA and is actively seeking employment as a CNA. She plans on pursuing a degree in nursing – hopefully at Wright College. Tempess is here today with her family to celebrate her accomplishments. We wish you all the best, Tempess, and you are inspiration.

Mitch Dominguez is celebrating his GED today. It has not been an easy road for Mitch, having suffered a stroke six years ago at age 28. After a difficult recovery, he enrolled in Truman’s GED program, where he received inspiration and support from instructors like Monica Blake and Bill Mitchell, who, he says, made writing and math easier to understand, and even fun. Mitch is joined today by his father, who not only helped him through his recovery, but who also inspired him to become a chef by cooking and baking with him during Mitch’s childhood. With his GED in hand, Mitch is moving forward with his culinary dream and is now a student at Kendall College. Congratulations, Mitch.

Gail Daniels is also celebrating her GED this evening. At age 64, she’s realizing a lifelong dream. Gail left high school at age 16, got married and had a child.  In her 20s, Gail – married with 4 children – started a job in housekeeping that did not require a high school diploma. She eventually began doing office work and data entry, and worked for a manager who encouraged her to return to school for her GED. She agreed, and found that she enjoyed going to classes, even though it was challenging to balance schoolwork and her overnight shift at work. On days off, she cared for her ailing mother-in-law and battled illness herself. Sadly, last year, Gail’s son was attacked and went into a coma. In those difficult days and weeks, Gail faced both tragedy and bittersweet triumph, passing her final GED test just 10 days before her son’s death. Gail, we are very sorry for your loss and we salute your strength and achievement.

What Jose, Abraham, Tempess, Mitch, Gail and so many students here understand is that an education is an investment in a fulfilling and productive life. I use that word – investment – for a reason. Investing is different from saving. When we save, we hold on to what we have. We want to protect, to keep things safe, when we save.

Investing is something different. Investing is taking resources – time, money, attention – and directing them in a way that leads to growth. Investment is strategic. Investment is about the future. And an education is a very smart investment in yourself. An education will help with growth and with providing opportunities. An education is an investment – and the economists are very clear about this – that pays off over time. Nationally, those that have a high school diploma make on average much more than those who don’t. Average salaries for associate degree holders are higher than those who have a high school diploma. And average salaries of people who have a four-year college degree are higher still.

Your investment of time and effort has led you to this point. Enjoy this moment, savor it, and appreciate it. Remember, too, that success begets success. Continue to set ambitious goals. Continue to invest in your education and to invest in yourself. You already have a proven track record.  I am absolutely sure that you are an outstanding investment – I am confident in your continued success.

Thank you very much for the opportunity to talk with you. You have my appreciation, admiration, and all best wishes for the future.

David Potash
