Students who visit the campus of Cloud County Community College during the month of February have a chance to win free books for a year as part of the Admissions Department’s #visitcloud promotion.

All prospective students who visit the Concordia or Geary County campuses between January 23 and February 28 will be entered into a drawing to win free books from the CCCC T-Bird Bookstore for the 2019-2020 academic year.
