Chinese Consulate members visit JCC
Representatives of the Chinese Consulate in New York visited Jamestown Community College in May to acknowledge the 10th anniversary of JCC’s participation in the “SUNY 150” program. In the aftermath of the devastating May 2008 earthquake in Sichuan Province, JCC was among 22 State University of New York campuses welcoming 150 Chinese students for the 2008-09 academic year. JCC hosted five students — Clark, Destiny, Julia, Stein and Young — who graduated from JCC in 2009.
