Helping Students Succeed
The college has a number of mechanisms to help students succeed, but one of the most effective and widely used is the Learning Assistance Center (LAC).
Funding Based on Performance
New legislation is to become effective January 1, 2012 that ties state funding for colleges to their performance. But how will the performance be determined?
Student Trustees
Having a Student Trustee enables the students to link with the operations and decision making process that effects the students and provides the trustees and administration with an accessible student point of view.
Helping Others While Helping Yourself
Do you want to give back to your community? Do you enjoy working with people, especially children and youth? Do you need money for college or to repay a student loan? If you answered “yes” to these questions, then ABC AmeriCorps may be for you.
College Today
Despite problems in state funding, community colleges offer excellent value for students.
