Today, It's Time for the College Students to Head Back to School
While most students returned to school last week, today marks the first day for students attending St. Louis Community College-Wildwood. Cars started rolling in the parking lot at about 7:15 a.m., and by 8 a.m. there was a steady stream of students entering through the doors. Campus president Pam McIntyre and other staff members are greeting students personally as they walk in.
"I enjoy welcoming back all of our students each year. We are beginning our sixth academic year this fall and we are happy to be growing in the community and providing people from the West County area with an opportunity to pursue their higher education goals," said McIntyre.
Many of the students coming to the campus are "traditional" students - those who come to college immediately after graduating from high school. But there are also high school students who take college level classes concurrently with their high school classes in order to get ahead, and students who are pursuing a degree after spending some time away from school.
Many classes started today. However there is still an opportunity for students to register for fall classes that begin tomorrow or later in the fall semester. Students can visit the STLCC website or drop by the campus to find out the classes that are still available.
