CCD Spring and Fall Picnics

The CCD welcomes your sponsorship of our Welcome Back Picnic. This event attracts hundreds of students each semester as we launch the recruiting season. Outside, students can take advantage of free food trucks while enjoying a live DJ and giveaways. CCD career advisors answer career development questions as well. As a sponsor, you will receive premium space outside to share information (and swag) about your company with students. This is a great way to build brand recognition on campus before recruiting season begins.
