School Notes:

The college added additional facilities in 1982 with the construction of a 6,000 sq. ft. vocational shop building on the main campus and the county's provision of 8,000 sq. ft. in the new Courthouse Annex for the Continuing Education Division. In October 1987, the college changed its name to "Sampson Community College." The Board of Trustees approved changing the name of West Building to W. W. Kitchin Hall on August 21, 1989, and South Building to the Robert D. Warren Student Center on June 10, 1997. In the fall of 1998, two new buildings, the Technology Center and the Activities Center, were occupied. The College's educational programs are comprehensive, ranging from instruction in basic skills through collegiate studies at the sophomore level. A principal focus of the College's curricular programs is to provide occupational education at the certificate, diploma, and degree levels in programs of study that lead to meaningful employment for students in southeastern and central North Carolina. The College also provides opportunities for students to complete general collegiate studies in the arts and sciences leading to associate degrees that qualify them for admission and success in senior institutions. As part of its commitment to lifelong learning, the College offers continuing education to adult students including opportunities to acquire basic skills, to complete the GED, and to participate in non-credit academic and personal enrichment classes. The College recognizes its obligation to work cooperatively with local business and industry, public schools, professional and trade associations, and community organizations to develop and deliver a comprehensive educational program that meets the needs of these constituents. The College supports local and regional economic development efforts and provides industries with access to specialized state-sponsored training and financial incentive programs.
