to your virtual orientation



Message from the President of CNA

Hello CNA students and welcome to the beginning of the fall 2020 semester!

I hope you all had a fantastic summer. To those who are returning this year, welcome back, and I’d like you to join me in sending a big virtual welcome to our new students!

So! Are you recharged and raring to go for the 2020 academic year? I know I am!

We thank you for choosing CNA for your education. No matter how long you are with us, we will guide you through what will be some of the BEST experiences in your life.

It is our commitment to help you be the greatest version of yourself. Someone who is a community leader, a business owner, or a stellar employee. It’s up to you to discover your own potential. It’s on us to get you there.

There will be times when the work is challenging; however, these opportunities will carry over into your future careers and help motivate you while you’re on the road to success.

Whether your programs are virtual, or in-person and on-campus, get ready to work hard … make new friendships … build relationships …have fun … and most of all, MAKE THINGS HAPPEN!

Liz Kidd, President and CEO
