KPC kicks off new school year

Posted: Wednesday, August 21, 2002

Registration, barbecue planned

Kenai Peninsula College is humming with activity in preparation for fall 2002 general registration. Walk-in and register for classes from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Friday. The annual community barbecue will be Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m., and KPC invites everyone to come enjoy the food and entertainment.

Don't worry if you missed the first offering of KPC's "New Student Orientation" because there will be two more sessions this evening -- at 5 and 7 p.m.

During the first sessions, more than 90 new students took advantage of the opportunity to become more familiar with campus services and programs. The sessions are run by KPC "peer advisors," student employees who are trained to help their fellow students and try to take the mystery out college life.

Registration, adding or dropping classes, counseling, financial aid, safety, degree planning, library services, tutoring, where to find faculty and campus tours are all covered in the session. It gives new students a forum to get any questions answered and to get a feel for the facility. Call KPC Student Ser-vices at 262-0330 and make an appointment to attend the "NSO."

Liberal studies degree available

Many peninsula residents don't realize that they can now earn a four-year liberal studies degree that can be applied to many professional fields. All classes for the bachelor of liberal studies degree can be obtained right here at Kenai Peninsula College. That's right! Now there is a four-year degree available to you without leaving the peninsula. The degree has been designed to meet the needs of various professions that require intellectual skills such as reasoning, judgment and problem solving. The program is composed of integrated courses with a multi-disciplinary approach that will prepare students to think critically on many levels. If this degree sparks your interest, call professor Dave Forbes at 262-0374 or professor Lance Petersen at 262-0376 for more information.

Late registration offered

Don't be too distressed if you aren't able to make it on campus this week. KPC's late registration begins Monday, the first day of classes and continues until Sept. 10. Give yourself more options in life. Call KPC Student Services today at 262-0330 with any questions you might have about how to get started on your college career.
