DEXTER, MO (KFVS) - Three Rivers College Center announced enrollment crossed the 300 mark late in the afternoon on Tuesday, Jan. 10.
The center says enrollment has nearly tripled since its opening in January of last year. They say the spring 2012 registration continues at the Three Rivers main campus in Poplar Bluff and at all of its full-service centers until Friday, Jan. 13.
“Last year, we had a very short time frame in which to notify people and potential students that we would be opening on time,” said center coordinator Bill Hampton. “Many students who were graduating from high school that May had already chosen to go to school somewhere else. The graduation of the 2011 class from the local high schools has really helped.”
Hampton said they're seeing students from all walks of life, such as Dexter graduates and workers returning the classroom to improve their job skills.
