Day 323 – Seminole Community College Sanford
Founded in and with 86 different degrees and certificates, Seminole Community College is a major education facility in Central Florida. Recently it was announced that SCC will now also offer a 4 year baccalaureate degree (Interior Design starts in January 2010). That is exciting news for Sanford and Seminole County and will make this area even more attractive for students in the future. The college will now certainly also look into offering more 4 year degrees. I am sure Interior Design will be a hit, I have heard good things about the AS degree that is currently offered here at SCC in Interior Design – as ValenciaCC Graphic and Web Design Alumni I want to mention though that VCC still rocks for those degrees ;o)
Seminole Community College is currently asking students and the public to name the college. The new name will take the place of the old, “Seminole Community College”. So if you have any ideas, don’t be shy and submit yours at http://www.scc-fl.edu/namechange/ On the page you will also find details about the reasons for the name change. Deadline is September 1, 2009. The name will be selected in Spring of 2010.
I have taken some Community Education classes at SCC, one of them was Interior Decorating, the other Salsa Dancing. Both classes were great fun. I was sad to just see that Community Education at SCC has been cut due to a lower budget. Hopefully those classes will be offered again in the future, they are a true enrichment to the community!
BTW, new classes start this month (end of August 2009).
