URock Fall Term Off to a Great Start
Fall classes are underway at University College at Rockland with more academic credit hours generated locally than last fall.
"Our headcount is up slightly," noted URock Director Deborah Meehan, "and will hover right around 600 students." However, Meehan noted that it seems students are taking more classes.
"I think there is a growing sense of impatience in students about finishing degrees and getting into the workforce. Therefore, they are stretching a bit and taking more classes to accelerate their progress to a degree," said Meehan.
University College at Rockland will have more than 1400 individual college course registrations this fall.
"There's a good, energetic flow of student traffic here," noted Meehan. "Some days we turn over 300 students."
The next semester at University College at Rockland will begin in January. Meehan says students thinking about starting in January can make an appointment now with an advisor to get the process started.
