In an effort to assist displaced students of the now defunct ITT Technical Institute, St. Charles Community College has organized planning sessions that could help in their continued pursuit of a higher education.
On Tuesday, September 20, SCC will offer former ITT students the opportunity to learn about SCC programs that align with ITT programs, information about financial aid, and more. Fees for the application for admission for these students will be waived, college officials said.
Southeast Missouri State University’s Kent Library is pairing with the St. Louis Astronomical Society (SLAS) to increase area residents’ knowledge of objects in the night sky as part of the Library Telescope Program.
Beginning Sept. 9, individuals with a valid library card will be able to check out an Orion StarBlast 4.5-inch telescope for a seven-day period.
“The telescopes provide a platform for education and programming,” said Christy Mershon, director of Southeast’s Continuing and Extended Education.
