Message from the President
(Monday, August 21, 2017)
Greetings and welcome to Fall Semester 2017 at Wallace Community College!
We are excited that you have chosen to either begin or continue your college journey with us. Student success, your success, is our highest priority, and our mission is to provide you with a rigorous curriculum, engaging instruction, and excellent student support services during your journey. This commitment to you was acknowledged in April when the College was identified by the American Association of Community Colleges as being #1 in the nation for student success.
Whether you are looking to begin the path toward a great career in a high-demand field, enhance your current skills to be competitive in our global marketplace, or transfer to a four-year university, WCC will get you where you want to be. We want you to COMPLETE your degree because a college degree will change your life. And… here are a few reasons why “getting your tassel” is so important.
You’ll earn more! Students who complete their associate degree or certificate can expect to earn about $500,000 more in a lifetime than a high school graduate.
Unemployment for community college graduates is typically 30 percent lower than for high school grads.
You’ll encounter fewer barriers to transfer! You’ll save time and money by not having to repeat courses or take courses you did not know you needed.
You will be more impressive to employers because you finish what you start.
You’ll be an educated, prepared and higher-paid employee, providing support for federal, state and local governments.
So remember…Get the Tassel!!!
On behalf of the faculty, staff, and administration, I hope you have a wonderful semester.
Dr. Linda C. Young
President, Wallace Community College
