Art and Design Portfolios, a Game Gala and Photography Projects

The end of the academic year traditionally is a time when students at County College of Morris (CCM) are able to exhibit their work on campus and other locations, demonstrating the knowledge and skills they acquired in their programs of study. While that is not possible this year, several professors have turned to online formats to display the work created and produced by CCM students to provide them with some well-deserved recognition.

Those online programs include a Portfolio Exhibit of work created by Fine Arts and Design students, a Game Gala presenting games developed by Game Development students and a Photography Thesis Projects site to show the work of upcoming graduates of the Photography Technology Program.
