Activity and anticipation

August 24th, 2015

The past two weeks have been full of anticipation and activity as the College gets set for the new academic year.  A number of programs have started and many more are preparing for the start within the next few weeks.  The level of activity has picked up as final preparations are being made for our fall programming. Registrations are being completed, supplies and materials are arriving, and instructors are meeting to plan for the upcoming year. It is an exciting time of year for Parkland College.

The greatest source of excitement is definitely the arrival of our students. The amount of student traffic has picked up with students arriving on campus to make final arrangements and confirm details for their chosen area of study.  While we might get preoccupied with the preparations and the details necessary to offer a wide range of high quality programs, it is the arrival of the students that makes the work have meaning.

A big thank you and note of appreciation goes out to our staff who have worked to prepare for our students’ arrival. Students, we cannot wait to welcome you to our campuses! Please do not hesitate to ask for assistance and support. Parkland College wants to do everything we can to provide you with the best learning experience possible.
