Happy New (Academic) Year and Welcome Back!

For many, Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer.  While warm 90 degree temperatures still drive us into the lakes and streams, puffy jackets are now quick to hand once the sun sets at 8.

With so much to look forward to, who could ever be sad summer was over?  Put your worries on the shelf and your backpack on your shoulder, and welcome back to WCC!

The staff at Entry & Advising are glad you’re here and ready to help!  Stop by Laidlaw (LDC) 116 to speak with an advisor Monday through Thursday from 9am to 4pm and Friday from 9am -11am.  Click on the hyperlink to see what other services in E & A are available along with lots of other useful information.  Have a great Fall quarter and Happy New Year!
