Deptford Twp. – On Monday, March 6, Rowan College at Gloucester County (RCGC) will join New Jersey's community colleges to launch the New Jersey's Community Colleges 1st (#NJCC1st) social media campaign to promote community college quality and affordability in New Jersey.

RCGC invites students, alumni, donors, trustees, foundation members, faculty, staff, business leaders, elected officials, and all those who have benefitted from a New Jersey community college to take to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube to share their community college success stories using the #NJCC1st hashtag, or by tagging @NJCC1st in Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts.

The goal is to highlight community colleges as a worthwhile investment in the future by featuring genuine stories from those who have been positively impacted by New Jersey's community colleges.

In addition to live social media posts, each of New Jersey's 19 community colleges will release a series of testimonial videos that describes the importance of community colleges from students, alumni, faculty, staff, and business leaders.

#NJCC1st will formally launch during the annual New Jersey Council of County Colleges' Student Lobbying Day, where students will kick off the campaign with their posts from the event at the Statehouse in Trenton.
