Bossier City, LA — Since coming into the education system in 1967, the Bossier Parish Community College has since then built a new campus, recently graduated its' largest class of seniors and thanks to a 18.5 million dollar grant from the State of Louisiana, the school will soon start construction on a new state of the art technology and engineering building.
“We are just seeing expansion, growth in our numbers. The main reason we see that growth is we focus on particular areas in the community, job sector high demand areas," said BPCC Public Relations Director Tracy Mcgill.
Senior Alessa Rexer who is originally from Germany says she is happy that the school is very diverse and experiencing growth.
“I think the growth at the college is because it’s just great to come here, it's students from right out of high school. I have a man in my class who is 60 and just starting college now so it’s really a wide span of students," said Rexer.
Officials are expecting record enrollment numbers for the upcoming semesters and the new projects around campus are expected to bring in even more student traffic.
