HANCEVILLE, ALA. – Wallace State Community College is preparing for the fall 2015 semester by conducting its annual Lions’ Pride orientation sessions for new students. The college has conducted a pair of Lions’ Pride sessions this week and three overall this summer. They are being held at the School of Nursing and Center for Science building for the first time.

Two more Lions’ Pride sessions are scheduled for Thursday, July 23 and Wednesday, Aug. 5. Both begin at 1 p.m.

Lions’ Pride is an orientation event which provides the opportunity for students to meet with an advisor in their area of study, develop an educational plan and register for upcoming fall classes.

Fall semester classes begin Thursday, Aug. 13 and registration continues through August 19.

The complete list of fall classes found online at wallacestate.edu/current-schedule.

Students are encouraged to attend a Lions’ Pride session in order to establish a plan of study to accomplish their educational and career goals.

This fall, a new Freshman Seminar, called “GPS” will provide students an opportunity to further pursue those goals while beginning their capstone and portfolio projects.

New and recently added program offerings include Sustainable Agriculture, Patient Care Specialist and Transportation Management.  The following programs are also intently focussed on enrolling students, as many have seen a surge in employment opportunities and not enough job applicants to meet the current demand: Agriculture, Business, Child Development (online), Clinical Lab, Collision Repair, Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Culinary, Emergency Medical Services, Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning, Horticulture, Human Services, Medical Assisting, Paralegal, Pharmacy Technology, Polysomnography, Poultry Science and Visual Communications.

Wallace State offers classes during the day, evening and weekends.  Many courses are available online, and several programs have completely online completion options, including Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, Computer Science, Child Development, Business, and Computer Science.

For more information, call Lion Central at 256.352.8236 or (1-866-350-9722) or visit wallacestate.edu.
