Students can also participate in student government activities, special interest clubs, athletic teams, and fine arts productions.

Over the years that support has included student scholarships, book loans, department grants, major equipment purchases, the comprehensive renovation of the Mortuary Science building and more.

While community college is less expensive than attending a four-year institution, students who drag out their degree programs lose much of that savings in additional tuition, fees, textbooks, and lost wages. In this article, we examine the reasons why some students take so long to graduate.
