Students Share their Thoughts During Pizza With the President Event

February, 2018
  • Dr. Pedraja talks with students in Southbridge.
  • Dr. Pedraja discuss concerns with a student at the recent Pizza with a President event.
  • Dr. Pedraja talks to QCC student Nelly Medina.

QCC President Dr. Luis Pedraja wants to know what the students at QCC are thinking and he knows sometimes the best way to have a candid conversation is during a meal. On February 26, Dr. Pedraja once again met with students in the Fuller Student Center to share pizza and conversation in an ongoing series, Pizza with the President.

The event drew about two dozen students who talked to the President about a variety of topics that included: police presence and awareness, the website, the Welcome Center, parking fee, plans to expand the tutoring center for disabilities office, pot holes on Burncoat Street exit, waiting list for classes, gender neutral bathrooms, locks on doors in bathrooms, better information available on clubs and student activities, homelessness and other topics of concern.

There was also a Pizza with the President event at QCC Southbridge on February 27 and one scheduled at the Downtown Healthcare and Workforce Development Center on March 5. An evening Pizza with the President is scheduled for March 19 from 5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. in the Fuller Student Center.
