President's Message


June was a transformative month for Asnuntuck. The  Governor and CSCU President Mark Ojakian joined other local and state officials for the ribbon cutting for the college's new 27,000 sq.ft Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center. This additional space is going to enhance the college's ability to train a highly-skilled workforce for the region.

ACC's new front facade is now open to the public. This past month Follett relocated their bookstore to the new front area of the building. It is wonderful to have so much natural light coming into the building and so much student centered space available. We are excited to welcome back students and faculty next month and to see the space being fully utilized.

A reminder to everyone that Asnuntuck will hold a Super Saturday event on August 5th from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. This is a great opportunity to come in and see the new additions and to meet with Admissions, advisors, financial aid representatives, and the Registrar to get ready for the fall semester. The bookstore will be open, as well as the business office, so payments can be made or payment plans set-up.

Continue to enjoy your summer, but know we are looking forward to your return!

Student Success

 Richard Toney, a 2017 ACC graduate, recently completed a Legislative Internship at the Connecticut State Capitol.  He is pictured with Senator Heather Somers (18th District, representing the Groton area).  Richard received a citation from the legislature for his work during his internship.  Richard presented legislators and staff with desktop versions of the Capitol, produced on 3D printers, by ACC's Advanced Manufacturing Technology Department. He left these with Senator Somers, Lisa Roy, program director of the internship program, the legislative research library, and Representative "JP" Sredzinski, who helped Richard with his interview project.
"The experience is fantastic and is something that should be considered as part of the educational process", commented Richard.  To learn more about the Legislative Intern Program visit ACC's Contact is Elle Van Dermark at for more information.
