Welcome to Wallace State Community College!
Fall semester is an exciting time as we welcome first-time students to campus to begin their collegiate careers and welcome back returning students as they continue their path toward completion of a degree or certificate.
At Wallace State, we are committed to student success, wherever you fall along the continuum of beginning to completion. We provide a variety of services such as free tutoring, success coaching, graduation coaching, and an array of services through Lion Central to help with the admission and registration process. Be sure to contact Lion Central to schedule a meeting with an advisor and to learn more about the services available to students. Remember, nothing takes the place of starting right, and that means meeting with an advisor.
We offer many activities designed to help students become engaged with each other and in the learning process because research shows that students who are engaged are more likely to be successful. Consider taking part in an extracurricular activity and attending some of the many events hosted on campus during the semester, including athletic events, arts and music events, lectures, films and so on. There’s even a trip to Europe on the horizon.
The Wallace State Common Read brings the entire campus together around a single book. The Common Read selection for 2014-2015 is John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. Recently released as a major motion picture, the book has spent dozens of weeks on The New York Times best-seller list and won critical acclaim as one of the best books of the year. Look for events related to The Common Read to be announced throughout the semester, beginning with a lecture on September 24. Our Learning Communities classes are another great way for students to engage in cross-disciplinary learning and attend unique events while meeting students in other classes. These classes are designated by a Learning Communities note next to their listings in this schedule.
When you join Wallace State, you are joining an institution that is nationally recognized as an Achieving the Dream institution, nationally ranked by Community College Week, designated among the Top 120 community colleges by the Aspen Institute.
We look forward to serving you. Be One of Us, and get in a Wallace State of Mind.
