Teachers, students celebrate CCC

The month of April is when community colleges celebrate. So this month Clinton Community College (CCC) is offering a variety of activities to showcase our students.

We have a Spring Fling Week at our Maquoketa Center, the Student Leadership Recognition Luncheon, High School Fine Arts Day, Priority Registration for our current students and new student registration begins for our fall semester.

CCC strives to deliver quality education and services at an affordable cost. If you are considering starting your education, we are here to serve you and meet your needs. Whether you are looking for a degree, want to upgrade your skills, learn a trade for the workplace or gain personal fulfillment with a class or two, look at your community college.

At CCC your success is our first commitment.

Administrators, teachers guide students

My name is Traci Handel. I am attending Clinton Community College studying Business Administration/Accounting. I am in my second year and it has been an amazing experience.

I am a non-traditional student and was very unsure about my decision to return to the classroom. I imagined being very intimidated and feared not fitting in.

Clinton Community College administrators and teachers have guided me every step of the way and gave me the confidence and tools I need to be successful. I am active in the Student Senate as treasurer and I was just inducted into Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

I work part-time, so my schooling will take a little longer than planned.

I am so thankful to CCC and grateful to be part of such a wonderful institution.

Traci Handel,

Camanche

Proud to stay at home

My name is Vanessa and I am a proud freshman student at Clinton Community College.

I go to CCC because it is in my hometown and is affordable. I enjoy how there are small classes and the campus is small. I am currently involved in PTK and student senate.

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg Better police needed for college teams enticed to cheat

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.
