Kenai Peninsula College: Around Campus

Students, staff work on float for parade

Posted: Wednesday, November 22, 2000

Float planned for Electric Light Parade

The Kenai Peninsula College staff and students are working together on a new float for the Electric Light Parade, which is held annually in Kenai as part of the Christmas Comes to Kenai festivities the day after Thanksgiving.

Instructors Drew O'Brien and Fritz Miller have combined with Steve Tompkins in maintenance and Josh Larson, a student employee, to modify an ordinary trailer into a parade-worthy float. Bettie Wallace, Student Union advisor, and Diane Taylor, Learning Center coordinator, are organizing teams to decorate the float and ride it in the parade.

Spring open house scheduled

The spring semester open house is scheduled for Jan. 4. This coincides with the first day of general registration for next semester.

More than 30 demonstrations and informative sessions are being planned for the one-day event, which will include live music and refreshments.

Student Services offers assistance in many areas

The KPC Student Services Center is in the commons area, near the administration offices, and always is prepared to offer assistance in academic advising, personal counseling, resource referrals, career counseling, financial aid, peer advising, forms, catalogs, schedules and transcripts.

The staff consists of a financial aid officer, a career center coordinator and knowledgeable student advisors, who work to make your college experience less intimidating and as stress-free as possible. Don't hesitate to stop by with a question. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 262-0330.
