When college gets complicated, whether it’s because of academics, finances, or personal issues, WCC’s Student Resource and Women’s Center can help students get the support they need to succeed.
It’s been a year since many of the 1,500 student instructors for the United Association Union of Plumbers, Fitters, Welders and HVAC Service Techs and an additional 200 faculty, industry reps, and staff visited Ann Arbor and WCC for an intensive week of hands-on instruction. This year they’ll fill classrooms and area restaurants and hotels August 7-13.
Registration for WCC’s Fall Semester starts Wednesday, July 14, for current and readmitted students. Registration for new students starts one week later on Wednesday, July 21.
For the last 30 years, WCC dance instructor Noonie Anderson has taken her dance students to the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair—not to look at the art, but to perform.
This July, WCC’s campus will be home to approximately 600 instructors from the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers. WCC has been home to summer instructor training for the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters for 20 years, and it will also host some classes for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
WCC welcomes over 150 home-based hobbyists and owners of small shops from the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. when it hosts the Digital Machinist CNC Workshop June 22-25. The workshop, which covers computer numerical control and is sponsored by Digital Machinist magazine, includes demonstrations and discussions involving software, machine conversions, equipment improvements, and electronics related to machine building and modifying. It also features hands-on training.

WCC shines the spotlight on commercial art May 3-28 when the vision and creativity of WCC graphic design students goes on display in the College’s Gallery One. An artist reception will be held Wednesday, May 12, at 5:30pm in the Gallery, which is located on the first floor of the Student Center building.
Helping others help themselves. Community service is all about extending a hand to benefit our community and the institutions that support it. That is what WCC students will be doing in droves this spring and summer as they spread out far and wide to raise money, awareness, and spirits.
