Nearly 400 students enrolled at new IVCC Ottawa campus

Posted by wlpo on August 4, 2010

Less than two weeks before the start of classes, Illinois Valley Community College President Jerry Corcoran says enrollment at the new Ottawa Center is approaching 400.

Corcoran thanked the Ottawa City Council at their meeting Tuesday night and was in turn presented with a symbolic key to the new college building by Mayor Bob Eschbach.  Corcoran says of the 383 students enrolled in Ottawa, nearly a third have never taken classes at IVCC.  He plans to survey these students to see if having an Ottawa campus is the reason they’re enrolled.

A grand opening of the new IVCC satellite campus is 9am Monday.  There is a public open house next Thursday from 4 until 7pm.
