Changes for SLCC/Acadian Campus' fall semester
Barbara Benson, who recently began working at South Louisiana Community College/Acadian Branch in Crowley, as part of their alternative energy program is looking forward to the fall 2013 semester at the
school with great enthusiasm.
The upcoming semester will be the ﬁrst that the school will be offering classes working towards an associate’s degree in the recently added alternative energy program.
There will also be other changes at the school which will make students feel as though they are in a similar environment of a four-year accredited college.
“I’m very excited about the fall semester and getting the ball rolling on our alternative energy program,” said Benson. “We still have plenty spots available for interested students.
“Students who are interested in learning about our program and possibly choosing it as a career would be at the cutting edge of future technology.”
Other additions to the school will be several math and English classes that are transferable to four year colleges.
“Often times students are trying to decide what their majors will be and still trying to determine there career paths,” said Benson. “Now area students will be able to take college classes in or close to their hometown. These classes can be transferred to colleges such as UL Lafayette.”
“We are trying to get the word out that students who have yet to decide where they will be in the fall should come by and look at our campus. We can sit with them on a one on one basis and discuss if our school is what they are looking for.”
