25Live replaces R25

25Live is the new face of event scheduling, a function previously managed using R25. You may have already noticed references to 25Live on the GRCC home page, and on the digital signs recently installed around campus. The next step in the ongoing transition will be to remove user access to the CWEST web viewer.

Effective October 1, 2015, CWEST will no longer be available for use to the GRCC community. The 25Live project team is providing training and support, and we welcome your questions and feedback.
