College Shifts into High Gear for Fall Semester
For the past 38 years College of the Canyons has opened its doors to thousands of students with the start of every semester. But when the college opened its doors this fall semester, it did so threefold, with classes on the Valencia campus, the opening of the new Canyon Country Campus and distance-learning opportunities available through online classes.
More than 2,300 students attended 118 classes on the first day of instruction at the Canyon Country Campus on Monday, Aug. 27. Meanwhile, at the College of the Canyons Valencia Campus, thousands of students located their classrooms among the familiar buildings and the unfamiliar. Four new buildings -- Aliso Hall, Aliso Lab, Hasley Hall, and the Physical Education Building currently under construction -- are a testament to the college's expansion.
"This is a very exciting time for the college," said Sue Bozman, vice-president of district communication, marketing and external relations at the college. "Students attending College of the Canyons have so many more choices, they can take classes closer to home if they live in Canyon Country or not leave home at all."
Students can take advantage of distance learning through the more than 100 online classes being offered this fall.
For those who missed the opportunity to enroll and register for classes during the summer registration dates, students can register now for more than 100 late-start classes with start dates through September and October.
