HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

 

 

Many students, faculty and staff will be spending the Christmas and New Year's holidays with their families in the coming weeks. However, many on our campuses are in winter session and more are preparing for spring semester.

Students can view winter and spring classes at wnc.edu/class-schedule/. Need help with your schedule, phone Counseling Services at 775-445-3267 or email counseling@wnc.edu.

Remember that the college is closed on Friday, Dec. 24 and Friday, Dec. 31.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
