CRANFORD, NJ -- Assemblyman James J. Kennedy made a special visit to Union County College’s Cranford campus and President Margaret M. McMenamin gave him a tour of the new Student Development Building that opened last week. The new, two-story, 30,000-square foot facility, is an extensive renovation of the historic Nomahegan Building and is the new hub of the campus.

During his visit on campus, Assemblyman Kennedy had the opportunity to meet with various members of the staff and student workers. He received a tour of the new Helen E. Chaney Student Services Center which is housed on the first floor of the Student Development Building. Helen Chaney, a 1948 alumnus of the College, pledged a generous $500,000 gift for student scholarships, which is one of the largest gifts the College has ever received. Mrs. Chaney is grateful to the College for providing a positive start to her education at a time when education opportunities for women were limited.

Assemblyman Kennedy was impressed when he saw how The Chaney Center includes Admissions; Registration; Payment Services; Financial Aid; Disability Services; Educational Opportunity Fund Services; Advising, Career and Transfer Services and Testing. The second floor houses classrooms as well as faculty and departmental offices.

The College’s Cranford campus is located at 1033 Springfield Avenue. For directions, visit www.ucc.edu.

Why We Keep Kosher

This week's parshah, Shemini, introduces the Torah's dietary laws. Animals must chew their cud and have split hooves to be kosher, fish need fins and scales, and a list of forbidden fowl is enumerated.
