This month's KPC Word on Campus

What is the most important reason you attend KPC, and why?

KBC has been a crucial part of my education which has allowed me to obtain my A.A in the spring of 2018. So, now I’m currently perusing a BS degree while staying close to home. Also, I've been trying to get 90 credits or my bachelors first to get the chance to be an officer in the Alaska Army National Guard. The National Guard has allowed me to stay close to home and it allowed me to attend KBC. The campus down here in Homer is a valuable asset that allows me to save money, pursue my goals, stay close to home, and have a better understanding of the world.”

I have been desiring to obtain a degree for more than 5 years. When my husband accepted a job in Homer, AK and we relocated from Bethel, AK, it was the perfect opportunity for me to pursue college. That’s when I enrolled at KBC. I am currently taking prerequisite classes for nursing. I have always loved to be in a real classroom, with instructors that can work with me. The instructors, tutors, and other staff have all been really helpful to me.

I am taking an Adult program which is writing, reading and life skills. I am a second language learner so I need those educational programs which help me to get a job and teach my kids who also need education.

I am attending KBC to attain a higher education to ensure a better career. KBC has given me an opportunity at the age of 35 to attend college to become a nurse. The helpful counselors and advisors have helped me achieve more in the pursuit of education than I ever thought I could. I am so appreciative of this college and all that it offers to this community.

I would say the accessibility, how everybody knows each other on the campus. It feels like a family and not like a big campus.
