Students Begin First Day of Classes at PVCC

Aug. 21, 2014

Thursday, Aug. 21, is the first day of classes for over 5,000 students at Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC).

With the fall semester now under way, students at PVCC are taking classes at several locations around the area.

About 170 students are enrolled at the Eugene Giuseppe Center in Greene County, while 160 students are enrolled at the Jefferson School Center in downtown Charlottesville.

PVCC President Frank Friedman says the several locations and programs make is easier for some students to attend college.

"The more variety of programs we can offer that lead to good jobs in the community, the more options students have,” said Friedman. “Taking our classes out into the community makes it possible for some students to attend who otherwise might not be able to attend because they live to far from the main campus."

During the three semesters of the 2013-14 academic year, more than 600 students took classes at these two off-campus centers.
