WSCC appreciates newspaper’s support

August 18, 2012
The Marietta Times

I am writing to thank you for your recent editorial about the proactive measures Washington State Community College (WSCC) is taking to address the current state of our enrollment. Like many other higher education institutions throughout Ohio, Washington State Community College is witnessing an enrollment downturn. As your editorial indicated, the strengthening economy has created new job opportunities for many area residents who had spent the previous few years in college enhancing their skill sets. In addition, more stringent federal financial aid guidelines have made it challenging for students to reach their educational goals within the timeframe prescribed by their aid agreements, and, the transition from quarters to semesters has had an impact on enrollment with a record number of students graduating last June.
