The start of a new year is a good time to reflect on some of the many ways we give back to our community. Throughout 2018, different departments and college organizations worked with local schools and nonprofits to help meet their needs. While community is at the heart of everything we do, this video shows just a few of the ways that individuals – faculty, staff and students alike – volunteer their time and energy to serve others.
Winter term is well underway, and spring term begins Jan. 23. This spring we have increased the number of 8-week classes so that you can speed along your studies and achieve your educational goals that much sooner. Now is the time to make those New Year’s resolutions to complete that degree or certificate.
When you visit campus, you’ll see that our facilities team is hard at work on Phase 2 of our new Health and Life Sciences Building. This is the biggest capital project the college has undertaken in its 57-year history. Such a major undertaking comes with some disruption and growing pains, but our goal is to keep the disruption to a minimum. Phase 2 of the construction incorporates the relocation of Ring Road, affecting campus traffic, pedestrian routes, and parking. We are confident that the final product will be worth the effort: a state-of-the-art building that will meet the needs of students and our community for many years to come.
It's an exciting time at AACC. We look forward to seeing you this New Year!
