When I became Peninsula College’s sixth president on July 1 of this year I did so with excitement and anticipation. I already knew the college had an enviable reputation and a great faculty and staff, but what I have found even more impressive is everyone’s dedication to student success. As a Peninsula College student, one of the first things you’ll discover is that we are here to help you realize those dreams, no matter what they might be. A college degree or certificate will give you the competitive edge you need in the workplace as well as increasing your earning potential. It can also prepare you for an advanced degree at a fraction of the cost of a four-year college or university.
Outside the classroom, you’ll discover other opportunities that will add depth to your learning experiences through our many clubs and extracurricular activities. At Peninsula College, the possibilities are almost limitless for participating in exciting and interesting activities, both on and off campus. I’d like to invite you to “discover” Peninsula College for yourself. Check out our website or visit us in person. Tour our 75-acre campus, meet our faculty and staff, talk with fellow students from all over the United States and many international countries, and see why Peninsula College is the first choice for so many students. They believe Peninsula College is the place to be! Visit us, and I think you’ll agree.
I look forward to meeting you.
