Guam - The Guam Community College celebrated its first annual open campus today at their facilities in Mangilao. Residents and students were able to take part in over 50 free activities designed to showcase the success of GCC's students and its workforce development efforts.

Activities included booths, classroom and outdoor demonstrations, professional presentations, free career and technical training sessions, cultural events and more. It also included a forensic science workshop featuring Dr. Lee Goff, the director of forensic sciences from Chaminade University in Hawaii and the consultant for the CBS series CSI.

"I think most of the country is discovering forensic science and GCC seems to be no exception to that. At Chaminade, several students are from Guam and they're doing very well completing their bachelor's programs and some of them in the master's programs," Dr. Goff said.

The Guam Hotel and Restaurant Association also hosted a job fair there, GCC's Cosmetology Program students were charging people $5 for haircuts and trims at the event, and the Guam Power Authority held bucket truck and safety demonstrations throughout the day.
