Editor's Note: Congratulations to Tom Gents of Illinois, the new owner of the Dream Machine. The Dream Machine raffle raised about $25,000 each for two charities: the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan and The Salvation Army's Staples Family Center.
This fall, roughly 14,000 students will cruise the Washtenaw Community College parking lots hoping to snag one of the 3,000 spots available. If you’re among the record number of students enrolled this semester, parking will be a big challenge. That is why students and College staff are urged to ride Ann Arbor Transportation Authority buses to school.
Washtenaw Community College credit classes originally scheduled at Dexter High School for the Fall 2009 Semester will meet instead on the campus of Chelsea Community Services at 500 Washington St. in Chelsea. Construction at Dexter High School was a factor in the decision.
WCC has taken two more important steps in its commitment to minimizing energy use and reducing greenhouse emissions.
WCC is a lean, mean machine when it comes to reducing waste. The College placed fourth out of 148 colleges that participated in the waste minimization division of the 2009 national Recyclemania competition. Simply put, WCC produced far less trash per capita than most other competing colleges. That includes both waste going into landfills and wastes such as bottles, paper, and cardboard that are recycled.
Washtenaw Community College has a brand new, state-of-the-art ceramics studio and we welcome the public to tour the facilities at an open house Saturday, April 4 from 1:00pm–4:00pm The studio is in room 135 in the Technical and Industrial Building. Light refreshments will be served.
A new video on WCC’s website introduces potential students to programs offered by the School of Nursing and Health Sciences.
In recent weeks, reducing global warming and increasing the use of renewable energy have become top agenda items in Washington, D.C., and Lansing.
