KPC student housing discussed
A public presentation and open house on ideas and concepts for the private sector providing housing for 80 to 100 students attending KPC was held Tuesday.
Representatives from the University of Alaska Anchorage facilities and land use departments attended. An overview of the college and outline why student housing is needed was presented. Options included, but were not limited to, privately-owned housing that could be used for tourism-related housing and summer activities converting to student housing during the fall and spring semesters. Topics included student fees for housing and meals, as well as conceptual ideas related to construction, maintenance and management of the facility.
Art department news
Celia Anderson, art professor, reported that Connie Tarbox, a local artist who earned her bachelor's of art degree in art almost entirely at KPC, has been granted a prestigious solo exhibition at Alaska Pacific University during December.
Anderson, together with art students, John Lagoutaris and Tracie Stang, will show work in the 2007 Experimental Art Exhibition at the Kenai Fine Art Center. The show, titled "SELF" will open as a First Thursday event this week.
