April is Community College Month

While we pride ourselves on being THE Community’s College year-round, during the month of April, we get to shout it from the rooftops!

That’s because April is community college month, and it’s the perfect time of year to celebrate all Eastern Iowa Community Colleges has to offer. We can think of no better way to do that than inviting you to attend a class free of charge. It’s just our way of thanking the community for your support, and to

introduce you to the many great Continuing Education classes we have available.

“Number one, we are THE Community’s College,” said Deb Goodall, Dean of Continuing Education. “We just want people to visit campus and experience the great teaching that goes on here from our faculty as well as adjuncts.”

Classes will be offered during a variety of times at Clinton, Muscatine and Scott Community Colleges, as well as at Scott’s Urban Campus.

“Last year was the first year we did this and it was really well-received,” said Goodall. “We’re excited to provide this opportunity again as a way to give back to the community and show our appreciation.”
