Hazim Hardeman, a kid from North Philly, a Rhodes Scholar and a Community College of Philadelphia alumnus, had a message for the city as he spoke at the College’s 52nd Commencement at The Liacouras Center on May 5: "Many of you are the first in your family to attend college, others of you are the first to graduate. And there’s a particular lure about being a first, the stroke of the ego, the feeling that you’ve been able to accomplish something that others before you couldn’t," Hazim, the College's Commencement speaker, told the students, families and friends of the Class of 2018. "But we should never mistake our being first, for being the first that were worthy," he cautioned.

People of the College

I came here in 2013, and I was pursuing piano performance. I then discovered CCP had a Sound Recording Technology program so I took that as a second major. I was enjoying all of that!
