This month's KPC Word on Campus

Is KPC everything that you expected it to be, and why or why not?

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Photo of Boudicca Rudkin

Yes, because I figured it would be a small campus, but everyone is really nice. There is more one-on-one time with the teachers, and the teachers are willing to help a student when they are in need.

– Boudicca Rudkin, KRC

Bachelor of Arts

Photo of Krista LaForest

Yes! The faculty and staff are so welcoming and always willing to assist me in order to achieve my goals. My classes have given me the hands-on experiences that I need to become a successful marine biologist.

– Krista LaForest, KBC

Semester by the Bay

Photo of Aubrey Duncan

Yes. I was looking forward to this college because of the environment that was well known, the established teachers, and the opportunity to make friends in a classroom environment.

I knew it was going to be a small campus when I arrived, but I wasn't prepared for how tight knit and community based it is! Everyone here is more helpful and friendly than I could have imagined.

I did not expect anything really, so I have been pleasantly surprised at the staff's willingness to help.

Associate of Arts

When I started, I didn't know what to expect, but this is much better then I could have hoped for.

Bachelor of Science, Biology

Photo of Preston Rucker

Yes. I expected it to be a small community college, where I could get more one-on-one time with the instructors.

– Preston Rucker, KRC

Bachelor of Arts, Elementary Education

No. I was hoping for a substantial difference between the environments of high school and college. Sadly, it is a letdown.
