Editions of The Bridge, Cape Fear Community College’s yearbook, are now up on DigitalNC. These yearbooks span 1970-1989, with the 1988 edition covering the institutional name change from Cape Fear Technical Institute to Cape Fear Community College. Programs offered by Cape Fear Technical Institute included some specific to the institution’s location on North Carolina’s coast such as marine technology, as well as more traditional programs such as business administration and practical nursing. Cape Fear Community College has grown over the years but continues to offer marine technology, boat building, and boat manufacture and service programs alongside its other academic and vocational programs.
