Last month, the QCC Diversity Caucus hosted the ZUZU African Acrobats in the Hebert Auditorium for the QCC community. Students, faculty and staff were treated to a mesmerizing performance featuring an authentic representation of what you would see at a cultural center in Nairobi or Mombasa. 

On January 31, QCC students in Professor Andria Schwortz's Astronomy class were offered the chance to witness an amazing phenomenon when the region witnessed a  total lunar eclipse, known as a the Super Blue Blood Moon. Locally the event was only visible for a mere 13 minutes in the early morning hours. QCC's diehard astronomy students got up early and braved the chilly morning air to witness this spectacular event.

The lunar eclipse was visible for only 13 minutes in Worcester.
