The Community College of Allegheny County is holding two informational sessions for Art Institute of Pittsburgh students affected by the recent closure of the school.

Sessions will be offered for all former art institute students at the CCAC Allegheny Campus on Thursday. They will be held on the first floor of Jones Hall, 808 Ridge Ave.

CCAC said in a press release the school offers associate degree and certificate programs that correspond to former programs of the Art Institute including culinary arts, business, e-commerce, entrepreneurship, film technician, food service management, graphic communications, graphic design, industrial arts and multimedia programming, simulation and gaming.

The first session will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and will include a free lunch. The second session will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will include a free dinner.

Both meals will be provided by CCAC’s Culinary Arts department. Attendees will have an opportunity to meet Associate Professor Art Inzinga and adjunct faculty Roger Levine. Both chefs are former faculty members of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.

Allegheny campus admissions staff and academic advisors will also be on hand to talk about how students may seamlessly transfer to CCAC. Free parking will be available in the parking lot at the corner of Ridge and Brighton avenues. To RSVP or for more information call the Allegheny campus advising office at 412-237-4622.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
