Fall Enrollment Is Down Slightly At LCCC

August 29, 2018

NANTICOKE — Nearly 5,000 students are enrolled at Luzerne County Community College for the fall semester with 1,442 new students and 80 at the college’s new Pittston facility. As expected, enrollment is down slightly, college President Thomas P. Leary said after the college board of trustees met Tuesday. Monday was the first day of the 2018-19 academic year at the main campus and the new Pittston Center at the M&T Educational Center. The Pittston Center is located in the former M&T Bank building in downtown Pittston and offers day and evening classes. Classes at the center focus on preparing students interested in health, wellness and leadership programs. The college plans to offer more courses for more students at the Pittston Center in the future. Classes at the Wilkes-Barre Center begin Sept. 17, and registration there continues through Sept. 19. Also after Tuesday’s meeting, Leary touted a finding on wallethub.com that Luzerne County Community College was ranked as the best community college in the state. He noted 13 other community colleges are in the state. Contact the writer: mbuffer@citizensvoice.com 570-821-2073, @cvmikebuffer
