This just might be the final “back-to-school” day of the year in West Seattle. It’s the first day of fall quarter at South Seattle College (WSB sponsor), headquartered at 6000 16th SW on Puget Ridge. SSC spokesperson Kevin Maloney tells WSB that more than 5,000 students are enrolled, including 103 13th-Year Promise Scholars, and that students “were greeted this morning with breakfast bars, coffee, and a warm welcome by staff members scattered throughout campus.” Those staffers include Computer Science instructor Ravi Gandham:

The fall quarter, which includes 55 instructional days, ends on December 16th; winter quarter starts January 4th.

P.S. A “Welcome Fair” is scheduled for noon-2 pm Thursday by the Clock Tower (which is shown in the top photo).

    Good afternoon!

    My daughter ran into registration problems that blocked tuition payments and canceled her three class signups. But in just one hour this morning, we managed to work through SSC’s registration, advising, cashier departments and get her all wrapped up with a BETTER schedule.

    Big props to Molly and Bailey in the advising office, and to the incredibly friendly staff on what’s traditionally a stress filled day in any college office. Go South!

Sorry, comment time is over.
