School Notes:

Founded in 1938, PCC is a two-year public, comprehensive community college and an area vocational school. We offer a well-rounded general education for the student planning to transfer to a four-year college or university and we meet the needs of the student desiring the skills needed to enter directly into the workforce. Some of our hallmark programs include Electric Power Technology, Ag Power Technology, Automotive Technology, and Nursing. We are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. This accreditation reflects the high quality of our academic and technical programs. PCC is situated on an 80-acre campus. The main campus facility, completed in 1968, houses the administrative and student services offices, classrooms, learning resource center, Carpenter Auditorium, Delmar Riney Art Gallery and the Dennis Lesh Sports Arena. The campus also includes a vocational classroom facility, indoor and outdoor rodeo facilities, an Automotive Technology facility, the Riney Student Conference Center, Stanion Indoor Baseball/Softball Practice Facility, Stanion Baseball Field, the recently expanded Center for Electrical Power Technology and Chandler Hall - a nursing/allied health and arts building - completed in 2003. PCC provides an active campus environment for over 280 residents housed in five residence halls. The two newest facilities, North Hall and Scholarship Hall, were completed in 1998 and 2002 respectively. In addition to numerous student activities, the college offers over a dozen student organizations and clubs with additional opportunities to participate in music, arts, and athletics – both collegiate and intramural. PCC is a member of the highly competitive NJCAA Region VI, Jayhawk West Conference and offers 7 men's and 8 women's programs, including wrestling added in 2006. While the average daily attendance on-campus averages 500-600 students, we service more than 3,000 students annually. These students consist of full-time, part-time, on and off-campus. PCC is accredited by the Kansas State Department of Education and the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

Students Stuck for Four Years to Earn an Associate?s Degree
A recent report revealed that many California community college students take twice as long to get an associate’s degree as is normally required. 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.

Competency-Based Education: Better for Your Academic Success?
In recent years, interest in competency-based education has risen drastically. It is a form of learning in which students engage in self-paced instruction and assessment of aptitudes rather than attending traditional courses and receiving traditional grades. Seen as the future of community college education by some, and as a cheapened version of a real education by others, competency-based education appears to be here to stay.
