Trustees, alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of CBA gathered on Wednesday for a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Learning Commons.

The Learning Commons was part of CBA’s Capital Campaign Our Mission, Their Future.

“We are gathered, once again, to celebrate another demarcation point reached for Our Mission, Their Future,” President Brother Joseph Jozwiak said. “A couple of weeks ago, our students and faculty celebrated the grand opening of the Learning Commons, the Innovation Lab, and three new classrooms. It is incredibly gratifying to see so many of them making use of the new learning areas, the technology, and the many new opportunities presented here.”
