Fall semester begins for IVCC

Posted by wlpo on August 18, 2010

You could notice more traffic on Route 71 between Ottawa and Oglesby Wednesday.  It’s the first day of the fall semester at Illinois Valley Community College.

College President Jerry Corcoran says he’s really excited because overall enrollment is ahead of last year’s pace.  The number of credit hours being taken is also up.

Over 4,000 students have signed up for classes, but Corcoran says it’s more important to look at the headcount at about the 10th day in.

It’s also the first day for classes at the Ottawa Center campus where nearly 400 students will be taking classes.  Corcoran says a little over one third of the Ottawa Center students have never taken classes at IVCC before.
