Mini Griffin in sunHappy Summer Griffins!
 

It's July, meaning in addition to the beautiful weather and vacations, it's time for us to bring you our best stories from the first half of 2018.
 
January was a month of service and celebration as the college honored Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and went green during the Philadelphia Eagles playoff run. February saw CHC receive a grant to help fund the Clement Hall renovations, which are almost finished! In March, an innovative class was introduced and in April, we shared the excitement of the Biomedical Lecture Series as well as that of inducting a new class into the Athletics Hall of Fame. That led us to May where it was all about the students - their honor society inductions, their senior seminars, their scholarships. Lastly, in June, we celebrated a beautiful Kente Cloth ceremony followed by a wonderful Commencement.
 
It's been a great six months for our Griffins and we're so happy to be able to look back on some of the top memories and milestones from that time. We hope you'll enjoy reading these stories, whether it's for the first time or the second, as we look back together on all of the wonderful things Chestnut Hill College has been up to in 2018.
