Welcome KVCC Students!
For our new students who are joining us for the first time, we are thrilled to have you beginning your college experience with us, and to our continuing students, we are glad to have you are back! We hope you enjoyed your time away and are ready to get to work. Keep your eye on the prize — May will be here before you know it.
We hope you have had a wonderful summer! We have been very busy getting ready for the start of a new school year. You will notice newly paved sidewalks and roads at the Alfond Campus along with a new outdoor bread oven. We are also excited to welcome 2 new vendors to campus – one will be operating our College Store and the other our food service in the Food for Thought Café. You will notice new TV monitors in each building and a new digital sign at the main entrance on the Fairfield Campus. Finally, we have been working on the Farm and the Fieldhouse at Alfond. These renovation projects will provide an educational space on the Farm and an indoor space for the Lineworker program. The remainder of our summer activities has focused on our regular tidying up of classrooms, open spaces and the outdoor ground space on both campuses. We are certainly ready for you on September 8th!
You may pick up a copy of your Student handbook during Welcome Week. Tables are located in the Averill Lobby at the Alfond Campus and also in the King Hall Lobby in Fairfield. This Student Handbook will provide information on services and resources available at both campuses. We invite you to take a moment and survey the Handbook. You will find a large section on available services, a calendar section that notes important campus dates & events, weekly calendar pages for you to track academic work due or appointments you may have, and also a copy of the Student Code of Conduct.
Remember that although it is up to you to know your goals, every connection you make here at KVCC will help you be closer to achieving them. You took the first step by choosing to study at KVCC. Whether you are a new or returning student, undecided or focused on a specific career, we are dedicated to helping you succeed both in and out of the classroom. If you still have questions, there are many staff and faulty to support you in your commitment to higher education. It has been our experience that the most successful students at KVCC ask questions, early and often.
Get involved. Ask questions. Keep stepping outside of your comfort zone.
Have a wonderful semester!
